Google has concluded its two-hour I/O keynote, which was jam-packed with information. AI, Android, and, of course, a slew of Pixel hardware were all mentioned. Here are the most important announcements from Wednesday.
Google I/O 2022, the company’s annual developer conference, has begun, starting off the summer announcement season in the tech world. For the time being, Google will focus on new software, Android 13, and maybe new hardware, such as the Pixel 6A and Pixel Watch.
The Pixel 6 a Has Google’s Flagship Chip but Is Not the Best Camera on The Market.
The Pixel 6A, Google’s latest mid-tier phone, will be available for presale on July 21st and will cost $449. For this phone, the firm seems to be flipping the script from prior A models, which sported a camera similar to Google’s premium Pixels but lesser CPUs. The 6A, on the other hand, has the same Tensor processor and design as the Pixel 6, but with a 12-megapixel camera instead of the 50MP on the Pixel 6.
Oh, and despite Google’s two-minute advertisement last year touting the Pixel 5A’s headphone port, the 6A lacks one.

This Year Will See the Release of The Pixel Watch.
The hardware for the Pixel Watch has been widely leaked, so it’s no surprise that it’s on our list, but Google has finally revealed the software. The wearable will run an upgraded version of Wear OS 3 and will have a Fitbit connection for tracking health indicators. However, there are still several unresolved (and crucial) issues regarding the watch: we have no idea what sort of chip it will use or how much it will cost. It will be released with the Pixel 7 later this autumn.
Pixel 7? What?
Oh yeah. Yes, Google teased the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro with a few renderings revealing the phones’ slightly different camera cutouts and rear panels. The 7 and 7 Pro will have two and three cameras, respectively, similar to Google’s existing Pixels. I’ll never be joyful again since the pink hue will supposedly be gone.
Cancellation of Google’s Pixel Buds Pro.
Let’s go right to the point: Google has revealed its own AirPods Pro competitor. When employing active noise cancellation, the Pixel Buds Pro will cost $199 and have seven-hour battery life. The Buds will contain a proprietary audio chip and enable Bluetooth multipoint, allowing them to connect to two devices at the same time, according to Google. That’s a unique earbud trick. They’ll be available for presale on July 21st in a variety of hues, including black, red, and green.
A Tablet with A Tensor Is on The Way.
Google Has Revealed that An Android-Powered Tablet Will Be Released Next Year to Serve as A “great Partner for Pixel with A Bigger Form Factor.” This One Has Been Written on The Wall for Quite Some Time.
(android 12 L Prioritized Large-Screen Experiences, and Mountain View Has Made Several Tablet-Related Hires.) However, It’s Encouraging to Learn that Google Is Resuming Its Tablet Efforts. only A Tensor Chip Is Known About Google’s Next Smartphone.
Google Is Developing Ar Glasses.
Google Showed out A Set of Augmented Reality Glasses Capable of Real-Time Translation During a Discussion Right Towards the Conclusion of Its Presentation. There Are Few Clues on Whether This Will Be a Commercial Product, but It’s Exciting to See Further Signs of Google’s Desire to Join Firms Like Snap and Meta in The Battle to Put Ar on Your Face.
The Power of Google’s Ai Is Increasing.
Google’s I/o Presentation Was Jam-Packed with Ai Stuff, as Is Customary. One of The Most Significant Is that It Will Begin Allowing Individuals to Test Its Language Model. Lambda 2 Will Not Be Available to Everyone, but Google Plans to Incorporate It Into Its Search and Other Businesses in The Future (though It Wants to Do so Very Slowly).
There Were Also a Few Lesser Ai-Related Stories. Google Announced that Its Automatic Translations Are Coming to YouTube on Mobile, that You’ll Be Able to Simply Look at Your Nest Hub Max and Start Talking to The Assistant, and That Your Phone Will Be Able to Look at A Shelf Full of Chocolate Bars and Pick One out For You Based on What You’re Looking For. “a Supercharged Ctrl-F for The World Around You,” According to Google.
In Addition, the Business Is Developing Its Multi-Search Tool, Which Allows Users to Search Across Several Axes. You May, for Example, Show Google a Photo of A Certain Style of Food and Ask It Where You Might Get It Locally.
Google Tries to Imply that It Cares About User Privacy.
Google Made a Number of Security and Privacy Announcements, Including Plans for The My Ad Center Interface, Which Would Allow Users to Personalize the Sorts of Advertising They See by Choosing from A Variety of Themes or Opting to See Fewer Ads on A Certain Issue. It Also Said that The Business Is Focusing on Adopting Extra Security Protections by Default for Its Devices, as well as The Notion of “protected Computing,” Which Involves Doing More Processing On-Device Rather than Transferring Data Outside.
Android 13 Exceeds Android 12 in Features.
Google Revealed Its Intentions for Android 13, and The Next Edition of Its Mobile Operating System Seems to Build on The Concepts Offered in Android 12. the Business Is Expanding the Availability of Material You Themes, Allowing You to Configure Applications to Utilize Other Languages, and Improving Security and Privacy.
that Doesn’t Seem Like a Ground-Breaking Release, but As My Colleague, Jon Porter Points Out, That’s Probably for The Best. Because Android 12 Was a Bit of A Mess, a Year of Adjustments and Tiny Enhancements Is Definitely in Order. the Beta Is Now Accessible for Anyone Who Wish to Give It a Go.
Google Wallet Has Returned.
Google Is Bringing Back Its Wallet App, Which Can Be Used to Store Not Just Your Credit Cards, but Also Your Passes, Rewards Program Memberships, Immunization Data, and More. the Software, According to Google, Is Designed for The Digital Identity Era. While I Recognize that This Is Most Likely the Future, I Still Miss My Tangible Google Wallet Debit Card.
