Google Chromecast Audio
A biscuit sized device gives your speaker to play with your device without any wire connected to your device. After setting Chromecast Audio with your speaker through AUX cable and connecting it to its app on your mobile device, it will start giving you the fun of your favorite music.
Google Android Tv
Google has made this gadget then obviously it deserves to be a smart device. The best skill of this smart Tv is that it works on user recommendation algorithms. This Smart TV has the ability to analyze the kind of content you usually watch, play and listen to, and recommend similar content. It is powered by Google search so you can search content using the search bar. Google Android TV has inbuilt Chromecast support and with its powerful remote you can search your favorite contents, movies or shows by voice search.
Google Daydream View
Daydream, a virtual reality headset by Google. It competes directly with Samsung Gear VR and Alcatel VR Googles and it beats its competitors due to its controller remote. Its fabric design, comfortable and stylish looks make its competitor jealous and its customer amazed. It comes with the price of $79. Its remote has two buttons, a volume tracker, and a clickable top trackpad. Remote is motion controlled so you can play the racing game with 360 views.
It is the best device to convert your mobile device into a TV Remote. Chromecast was on the top selling list of Amazon for last two years. You can plug it into Tv’s HDMI port and connect with USB cable connection with your PC and mobile. With Chromecast you can access video content from Netflix, YouTube, Hulu etc. Google Chromecast comes in its two versions, the regular Chromecast and Chromecast Ultra. Regular Chromecast is worth of $35 and Ultra is worth of $70. Chromecast Ultra gives you to broadcast your content up to 4K resolutions with HDR color technology.
Google Pixel Buds
These buds next-gen earphone device. Google Pixel Buds are the direct competitor of Apple’s AirPods but Google made its earphone device very smart. These earbuds have AI based Google Assistant support and feature of real-time translation for 40 languages. Pixel Buds are worth of $159 in US market. Google is working very hard in its AI technology which nowadays so much farther any of competitor tech giant.
Cute and creepy at the same time, the Clips, a camera device from Google. It is a stand-alone AI-driven camera. This tiny camera runs on its pre-trained machine learning algorithms, these algorithms help you to automatically generating your clips and picking the best image for you. It supports both iOS and Android, you need to install an app for it.
Google Home Mini
This amazing new device is also from Google Home family and younger brother of Google Home Max. Home Mini is a direct competitor of Amazon Echo Dot. It is coming in market with three colors Red, Black and grey, the price tag will be around $49. The sound quality of this little tiny speaker is quite good and experts recommend it over Amazon Echo Dot on sound. Like as Max controls of Mini are tap-based, tap right side of this donut shape like device raises the volume and left side lowers the volume. The biggest drawback we found is the lack of audio output jack. So you can’t use the external device for music, you have to rely on Google Chromecast Audio dongle for it.
Google Home Max
An expensive speaker with Google Assistant. Google Max supports HE-AAC, LC- AAC+, MP3, Vorbis, WAV, FLAC, and Opus audio formats. In Max, we can wake Google Assistance up by shouting “Hey Google”. Sound quality is too good and Max supports Spotify, Google Play Music, YouTube Music, Pandora, TuneIn and iHeart Radio. It is coming in market with the price tag of $399 which is way expensive than its competitors like Apple HomePod, Amazon Echo, and Sony LF-S50G. There are some other cheaper portable speakers with good sound quality on this website.
Now Google is updating itself from Chromebook to PixelBook in laptop hardwares. I am telling you it will kill you by its hot & sexy look. It can be folded and you can use PixelBook as a tablet as well. It entered the market with the price of $1000 in the US. PixelBook is wrapped in aluminum, this 1 Kg and 12.3-inch device serves as a great gripping point when you fold the laptop into its various modes. As like Chromebook, PixelBook also works on Chrome OS. Just like phone and tablet, you will find a power button and volume button on the left edge of the device. It can be good when you are using PixelBook as a tablet but if it will be used as a laptop then it can be looked weird using these buttons. However, thankfully Google gave duplicate volume buttons on the keyboard. In Pixelbook you will find two USB-C port and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. You can charge PixelBook by either of USB-C port.
Google Pixel Smartphones
Google announced their flagship Pixel smartphone in last October, in this October they are coming with the second product of this smartphone series. This time Google launched Pixel 2 with Pixel 2 XL and in three colors combinations White, Black and Blue. In the US its prices start from $ 649 and in India, you can buy it directly from Google store in Rs. 61,000. Pixel 2 is coming in 64/128 GB of storage with 4 GB of RAM. Pixel 2 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core SoC, 2.35 GHz processor. Google Pixel 2 has a very powerful camera with 12 MP rear and 8 MP front camera and inbuilt Machine Learning based Portrait mode. Now Google is doing hard work of making its Artifical Intelligence based assistant better and better. I suggest those people who invest in exploring smartphone they should explore Pixel2 as well.
