Google announced two new Home smart speakers

Google Pixelbook features leaked ahead of launch, Home Mini speaker listed online

This device is more of a speaker than a smart device, though it certainly does everything that all the other Google Home devices do. Pink is a popular interior design trend, so Google compared its shade of gray to the most popular pinks to make sure the Mini harmonized with them. And Amazon, to its credit, has put in a lot of work in nudging you towards the right skill, depending on your question. Google augmented the Pixel's already-great camera by fusing optical image stabilisation with electronic image stabilisation, which should result in remarkably steady video. While the front facing camera on these devices is of 8 Megapixel. However, fans will miss out on the 3.5mm headphone jack, which has given way to USB Type-C for both charging and music.

As the name suggests, Google Home Mini is the smaller version of Google Home hands-free, voice-controlled smart speaker.

"It's when you try to hold a conversation with someone in a foreign language that the Google Pixel Buds magic takes hold". So you can activate it and it will do the things rightfully for you.

The prices in India of Pixel 2 XL for the 64GB and 128GB variants are Rs. 73,000 and Rs. 82,000, respectively. The company is also working on improved voice recognition. "Clips looks for stable, clear shots of people you know", Google says. The earbuds come with Google Assistant baked in, but it's Google Translate that makes these truly innovative.

The field of view is now 10 to 15 degrees wider than the previous edition.

The new Pixelbook is a high-end laptop priced at USD 999 (8GB RAM, 128GB SSD), USD 1,199 (8GB RAM, 256GB SSD) and USD 1,649 (16GB RAM, 512GB NVMe).

Following the announcement of two new Google Home devices earlier this week, Amazon and Google are on more even ground than ever before. It also has a feature called Smart Sound, powered by artificial intelligence.

Its available from 17 October and buying straight from Google is the obvious choice but you can also buy the Home Mini at a number of retailers including Carphone Warehouse, John Lewis, Argos, Very and Currys. The Home Mini costs 59 euros, the bigger version of home costs 149 euros. While it's far from a home stereo solution, this straightforward device presents all of the Google Assistant functionality Home is known for in an unobtrusive package.

There are two woofers and two tweeters housed within the speaker. Google says it now supports pretty much all the major smart home brands, neutralizing Amazon's advantage there. The Pixel 2 XL is only available in Just Black and Black and White, and it won't be available until November along with the Pixel Buds. It is priced at Dollars 399. The speaker will be available in the market in the coming December month. With beefed up specs, there are several unique features that will set the Pixelbook apart from current Chromebooks, with the first being Google Assistant.

It has a 12.3-inch touchscreen and can be used in tablet mode.

It's available for pre-order right away, and available in seven countries: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, UK and United States, including Japan - the new country that was announced. You can have plenty of choice with the RAM and storage options as per your requirements.

Mostly, though, you will be talking to it.

The perfectly round pint-sized speaker is like a fabric covered pebble and feels nice to the touch, which you will need to do when not using voice controls.

So which one should you buy? It's a goldmine of personal information that can ostensibly be used to serve ads on other Google products, perfectly tailored to your needs at any given time.

Last year's Pixel phones and Home speaker were frustratingly only available to Irish consumers if they used a proxy address service such as Parcel Motel or An Post's Address Pal. So hurry up and order away your Pixel 2 handsets to get a free Google Home Mini.
