Arguably, the Pixel's best feature past year was its camera, and Google has only improved things. The devices are available for preorder now and will initially be available in Australia, Canada, Germany, India, the United Kingdom, and the US. YouTube Red, of course, also means that YouTube Music will be ad-free, allowing you to pull up Google Assistant and ask her to stream music from YouTube without ever having to encounter an ad. It is the said to be the first laptop with built-in Google Assistant and support for Pixelbook Pen. The PixelBook will also support stylus input with its own supported PixelBook Pen accessory, built in cooperation with Wacom.
In conjunction with the new hardware, Google is also introducing a number of new features to the Google Home family of devices.
Pre-orders will commence on October 26 and will be on sale from November 1 (Pixel 2) and November 15 (Pixel 2 XL) in over 1,000 stores across the country. The six-inch Pixel 2 XL starts at $849. A user can tap the right headphone to invoke Google Assistant, control music playback with their voice, and get directions from the company's Maps app.
It also has a portrait photo mode similar to the iPhone's but it uses two sensors in close proximity gathering data from the single lens, since there's only one on the camera. If the supply is anything like it was past year, you're going to want to pre-order as soon as possible if you want to get your hands on one. Last week, Amazon announced the next generation of its Echo speaker, coming out in time for the holiday shopping season, will cost just $100, a price that Google decided not to match.More news: Derek Carr should easily beat six weeks, could return in two

"They're simple to use and they anticipate your needs", Osterloh told at Google's product launch event in San Francisco.
These new phones come in white, black, and light blue for the Pixel, and white and a white-black hybrid for the XL. During the live demo, the headphones essentially worked like a Babel Fish from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. It should provide up to 24 hours of listening time and charges through a USB-C port.
Both devices also have an "always on" option, so can be set to show notifications or useful information even when the phone is off and both come with True Black level for deep blacks, though neither offer HDR. It has the widest field of of view of any Google headset yet, and will cost $99. The advertisement was spotted by a user and was posted on Reddit in images. Then, you can speak back and it will do the same process in reverse.
