What new products were announced on the Google Pixel 2 Event?
Google Pixel 2 Event took place in San Francisco on October 4, 2017 at 9 am. The company has introduced a whole range of new products. The news has been already whispering for days, but it finally came to the surface.
The question is: what has Google brought to the market?
Cute "Google Home Mini" is here
Google Home Mini is a smaller version of existing Google Home device. It is a small smart speaker who works with Google services by using a smart Google Assistant. This device is really compact and has a set of LED lights and microphone on the top. The sale of this small speaker begins on October 19th and will be available in three color schemes - Chalk, Black and Red. The prize starts at $ 49.
Smart "Google Home Max" will listen to you
Larger Google Home Max brings the best experience from Google Home. Ask Why? It can collaborate with third-party services such as Spotify or even recognize your voice and turn on your personal playlist. The speaker can also recognize the environment in which it is placed and adjust the equalizer accordingly. The sound comes with a pair of 4.5-inch bass speakers and a pair of 0.7-inch tall speakers. The sound goes through a cloth package that delivers sound without damping, making it 20 times louder than the classic Google Home.
Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL as the best Android smartphone?
The new Google Pixel 2 will be available in two sizes: with a 5-inch and 6-inch screen and three color versions: black, white and blue (only Pixel 2). The display is embedded in a mostly metal, waterproof body and fingerprint reader. The phone is equipped with a powerful Snapdragon 835, 4 GB RAM, 64/128 GB internal memory and a 2,700 mAh battery.
Both phones offer a 12.2 MP camera with optical stabilization and legendary optimization from Google. The greatest advantage of the camera is especially software that excels in a better dynamic range thanks to combinations of multiple photos with a short shutter.
It is reported that the smaller Pixel 2 will cost 649 dollars and the larger Pixel 2 XL 849 dollars. However, Google also boasts that one Google Home Mini is packed free of charge for pre-orders of the smartphone. It's going to be good, is not it? The sad news is that phones will not be sold officially in Slovakia. They can be enjoyed by residents of standard locations such as the United States, Germany or Great Britain.

Capture all positive moments with Google Clips
Google Clips is not an action camera like GoPro, but rather a kind of personal camera designed especially for parents who want to capture valuable moments with their kids. The camera features a simple clamping mechanism (clip) that lets you mount the camera almost anywhere.
The Google Clips camera takes photos and short videos completely automatically - without any interaction. All you have to do is turn on the camera and then it works by itself. The camera can recognize the faces of people (and the faces of the animal!), Looks for smiles and notes the conditions in which it is located (environment).
