Google held this week in San Francisco the Made by Google event, in which he has presented his new products: a new Chromecast, a virtual reality glasses, a stylish Wi-Fi router and signal booster, and your Google Home home assistant; but the great novelty has been its new line of high-end mobile phones called Pixel, which due to its characteristics could challenge the best of the iPhone.

In the presentation made by the CEO of Google, Sundai Pichar, and in the software of the products presented you can see a the company's clear commitment to the technology so fashionable lately and that day by day is consolidating with the appearance of new products: artificial intelligence.

The new products featured on Made by Google

1. Pixel and Pixel XL mobile phones

It is a line of high-end phones, with an elegant design and rounded edges reminiscent of those of the iPhone and, according to the presentation information:

  • Includes the best built-in camera so far in a mobile phone, with a DxOMark Mobile score of 89: a 12.3 megapixel rear camera with a focal aperture of 2.0 with optical stabilizer; and an 8 megapixel front camera. In addition, it allows you to record video in 4K.
  • It is compatible with virtual reality.
  • Your battery, in addition to lasting all day (with moderate use), charges at astonishing speed: 7 hours of autonomy in just 15 minutes of recharging; something really interesting if we are fans of virtual reality games like Pokémon Go.
  • And the big news: it is the first mobile phone to incorporate Google Assistant, the company's new artificial intelligence system that we already saw in the Allo messaging application and that gives a thousand turns to the previous assistant, Google Now.

In addition, users who have a Google account will enjoy Unlimited online storage of 4K photos and videos.

Both phones will be available in black, silver and electric blue (the latter only in the US); and they share a large part of its characteristics, such as the camera, the processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon 821), the RAM capacity (4G) or the Android version (Android 7.1 Nougat).

They differ basically in size, that of the Pixel XL is larger; that obviously also affects the weight, the screen and the battery:

PixelPixel XL
Size (length / width / thickness)143.8 x 69.5 x 8.6mm154.7 x 75.7 x 7.3 mm
Weight143 grams168 grams

Battery2770 mAh3450 mAh

Also, both are compatible with NFC technology used, for example, in many mobile payment systems; and include a fingerprint reader.

The new phones They will hit stores on October 20, but only in some countries chosen. The first will be the United States, Australia, Canada, Germany and the United Kingdom and it is now possible to reserve them.

its starting price It will go from $ 649 to $ 769 for the 32GB versions of the Pixel and Pixel XL, respectively; and $ 749 to $ 869 for the 128GB versions.

The seeker has already reached a agreement with Verizon for distribution of your phones in the US They will also be sold in Best Buy stores and the Google Store.

2. The Daydream View virtual reality viewer

To use it, simply place a compatible phone in the viewfinder, for example the new Pixel and, automatically, we can:

  • Teleport almost anywhere (Including Howarts!): with Draydrem View we can visit the Taj Mahal or swim with dolphins to travel on the express to Howarts. And it is that, apparently, Google has reached an agreement with the author of Harry Potter, J. K. Rowling, to recreate in an application the world of the famous wizard. They have also recreated a planetarium so that we can visualize the different constellations.
  • Watch movies and other entertainment content as if we were in the front row in a 3D cinema; and visualize concerts and sporting events with a 360 ° panoramic view. For this, the company intends to reach agreements with content distribution companies such as Netflix to adapt their content to virtual reality.
  • Enjoy immersive video games.

The visor is sold with a Control command that allows us to make movements in the style of a Wii remote or draw.

For convenience, the device is lined with a soft and breathable fabric; and it has been adapted so that people with glasses can use it without problem.

Daydream View goes on sale in November for $ 79, remote included. At the moment, we do not know what its price will be in euros.

3. Google WiFi, a kind of router and signal booster for the home

It is a new connected device that replaces the router and that, by placing several devices in different parts of the house, allows us to carry the Wi-Fi signal to any part of the home.

Its main advantage is that it is expressly designed to work with multiple devices who are downloading, sharing or playing content over streaming at the same time.

That's what makes it the device ideal for current and future homes, in which:

  • Different family members usually connect to Wi-Fi at the same time from different points in the house using different devices.
  • We will have different appliances connected to the Internet, as part of the so-called Internet of Things (IoT).

Another of the main differences with existing routers is that Google WiFi incorporates intelligent software called Network Assist that manages the Wi-Fi connection for us, offering us the fastest possible connection speed at all times.

Too make suggestions on how to optimize performanceFor example, moving the WiFi point to another place in the house where it provides greater coverage.

Also, includes a simple mobile application with which we can manage the network connection of our home: see which devices are connected at all times and prioritize their performance, prevent the connection of certain devices at a specific time (for example, our children's mobile devices while they study or at meal times), etc. .

Google Wi-Fi hit stores in december and can be purchased individually (a single device) for $ 129 or in a pack of three for $ 299.

4. Chromecast Ultra

Google has presented a upgraded version of your old Chromecast, called Chromecast Ultra.

The device It has the fabulous functions that its predecessor already had, such as the “mirror” function to reproduce the content stored on our mobile phone, tablet or laptop on television; plus:

  • Improve image quality, allowing us to play streaming content on the TV with 4K Ultra HD and HDR quality in great detail.
  • It has a increased processing power, providing a reproduction in streaming faster than any other Chromecast device.
  • And includes a integrated Ethernet adapter optional.

Also works seamlessly with Google Home, Google's new artificial intelligence assistant for the home.

The new Chromecast Ultra will go on sale in November for 79 euros and it is now possible to sign up on the waiting list to buy it in the Google Store.

5. Google Home

Google Home is a new device expressly designed to be the control center for all home devices and our personal assistant.

Its operation reminds us of the artificial intelligence agents for the home in futuristic films such as the Samantha operating system in the movie Her or the one in Back to the Future.

We can ask you to do thingsLike turning the light or television on or off, changing the channel, reminding us of an appointment or dictating a cooking recipe, playing music, etc .; or ask you questions such as, for example, what is the weather going to be tomorrow, how to say a phrase in another language, how long would it take to get from home to some place or what has been the result of a sporting event.

To do this, this speaker voice activated with the phrase "Ok Google" incorporates Google Assistant, the company's new artificial intelligence assistant how pleasant surprises it has already given us in recent months, integrated into the Google Allo messaging application.

For music playback, Google Home is compatible with services like Google Play Music, Spotify, YouTube Music, Pandora and TuneIn.

And it works seamlessly with other Google services, such as Gmail, Calendar, Google flights or Maps; and with devices like the new Chromecast Ultra and Google Wi-Fi or the well-known Nest smart thermostat.

Another advantage of artificial intelligence (apart from possible privacy risks) is that every day Google Assistant is learning something more about us, our tastes and interests, being able to offer us an increasingly personalized service.

Although its presentation was not a surprise because we had already heard about its existence at the company's annual Google I / O conference 2020, there is no doubt that Its launch will completely transform our homes and finally puts Google in a position to compete with companies like Amazon and his Echo device in a space where until now it seemed to be far behind.

Google Home will go on sale in November for $ 129 and will be available in up to seven different colors.
