Google this week debuted an entire lineup of new products, from a high-end speaker to headphones capable of translating language on the fly. Oh, and the search giant also introduced two brand new smartphones, one of which features an edge-to-edge display with rounded corners.
Although the event was relatively low key, Google announced a lot—which was to be expected, seeing as most of Google’s big surprises were spoiled weeks in advance. After this week, it’s clear Google is becoming more and more like Apple, and we couldn’t be more excited about its new gadgets.
Here’s everything you need to know.
Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL
A squeezable frame, front-facing speaker, and an elegant design are just a few of the things that stand out about the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. The real question will be whether or not the camera is as good as Google says. If last year’s Pixel is any indication, Google will have another quality release on its hands. [Learn more]
Google Pixelbook + Pixelbook Pen
Nobody should spend $999 on a Chromebook, but the Pixelbook is still incredibly enticing. Not only does it look gorgeous, but it acts as both a laptop and tablet—it exists in a nebulous space between Apple’s iPad Pro and Microsoft Surface Pro. Chances are you won’t buy one, but I don’t blame you for at least considering it for a split second. [Learn more]
Google Home Mini
Google is taking the brilliance of Google Home and cramming that technology into a smaller, more affordable body. For just $49, users will have access to Google Assistant, which is quickly becoming the smartest (and most natural-sounding) digital assistant on the market. [Learn more]
Google Home Max
If you want bigger sound, look no further than the Google Home Max. Equipped with dual 4.5-inch woofers, custom tweeters, and smart sound technology that optimizes to its surroundings, so you don’t have to feel bad about sticking it in a corner. [Learn more]
Google Pixel Buds
They may look like ordinary headphones, but they’re anything but. With up to five hours of battery and a sleek design, the true highlight of the Pixel Buds are their ability to translate language in real time. Just don’t get caught with them in Spanish class. [Learn more]
Parents will love Google Clips, a tiny camera you can wear. The idea of lifelogging isn’t new, but Google says its technology will make Clips a worthwhile investment. Not only does Clips snap short clips on its own, but it can recognize faces and intelligently chooses which moment to capture. [Learn more]
