Google's New Products Announcement



Earlier this week, Google announced new products to be released later this year.

Google Home Mini $49 / Max $399

Google's answer to the Apple Home Pod is the Google home models. One feature was featured is the "Broadcast" feature. If you have multiple "Homes" around your house, you can ask Google to Broadcast a message to the other devices. You can use this model with any Chromecast in your home as well.



Google Pixelbook $999

Google unveiled a new 12.3" touchscreen convertible chromebook that can come with Intel i5/i7 processors, 16GB of RAM, and up to 512GB solid state hard drives. This device will be released on October 31st. An additional accessory for the Pixelbook was also announced called the Pixelbook Pen. These products are unmistakable allusions to Apples iPad Pro and Pen.


Pixel 2 (Price)

Googles new phone comes with a high-end camera and has new AR (augmented reality) features. However, Google has also "cut the cord" so to speak by removing the headphone jack and announcing Google Pixel Buds ($159) as well.
