So its certainly has been a busy time overnight for the team here at Ausdroid with everything that Google has announced overnight at its #MadeByGoogle event. There certainly has been a lot announced, so we thought we should create a small list of what was exactly announced so you’re right up to date without the need to trudge the Ausdroid site looking for the exact post your after.
So without further ado, here we go folks:
Google has announced that its AI assistant which was first used with Allo and has been embedded with the new Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones from HTC & Google, is about to get more interactive, and Google is expanding the capabilities of the Assistant with partners – You can read more about how Google AI will eventually come to more services in the future right here.
New smartphones are Google Pixel and Pixel XL
During the same event, Google has announced its new premium smartphones in two different sizes (which we already somewhat new prior to event thanks to the many leaks in the days, weeks and months prior to the event) called Pixel and Pixel XL which you can read more about the new smartphones right here.
There has also been news on who will be both the exclusive retail partner here in Australia, being JB Hi-Fi and the exclusive Telco partner – Telstra, with pre-orders now being taken also online through the Google website shop, JB Hi-Fi and Telstra combined.

We’ve also got Google’s newest service which was announced all the way back in May at Google I/O called Google Home – a new competitor to Amazon’s Echo – and is sort of like an extension of your home WiFi essentially, which utilises Google Assistant “at its core”, which will enable it to provide information from the Internet to the user and so much more.
