On Oct. 4 2016,in their event “Made By Google,” Google announced,  products they will be launching soon.The most talked about products announced by Google was their new phones, Pixel and Pixel XL.

The new phones has a seamless, glass-aluminum body, and has a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone.  

What makes this phone different from Google’s other phone the Nexus it has both hardware and software made by Google, which stands out because it will be able to keep up with the latest version of the android and keep monthly Security checks.

Pixel and Pixel XL will be available in three different colors–quite black, very silver, and really blue–and in two sizes of 5” and 5.5”.

Some notable features on the phone would include a high-quality camera, video calls that can call on both IOS and Android, seven hours of battery, and even unlimited storage for photos and videos.

These phones are the first built in with Google Assitant, which is similar to Siri used in iPhones. With Google assistant, you can make reservations, play music, text, and search for events nearby.

But what sets Google Assitant apart from most voice activated programs is that it is powered by Google, which will be more conversational and be able to answer a wide variety of questions.

Lifehacker sets the example, “you can search for a restaurant, then follow up that command by asking ‘How far away is it?’ and Assistant will understand that ‘it’ refers to the restaurant.”

Not only will google assitant be on Pixel and Pixel XL, but on Google Home too.Google Home is a voice activated speaker that will be able to play music from Google Play Music, Spotify, Pandora and many more. This feature will be customizable to the person’s liking with bases that come in seven different colors.

The Daydream View is a VR headset and controller that will allow you to watch movies and play games.

“It doesn’t quite look like other VR headsets and that’s because in designing it [Google wasn’t] inspired by gadget[s] [they] looked at [but] what do people actually want to wear,” a Google announcer said.

The VR headset will also be compatible with other phones that aren’t from Google as well. Two new colors are going to be added soon, too.

Other products that were mentioned are the Google Chromecast, a streaming device where you will be able to stream your favorite music, TV shows, and movies on your computer or phone,  and their new wifi router.

All of these new products are now available to order, you can find them in The Google Store, Best buy and other stores too.
