Google Event: what all has been launched with Pixel Smartphones
Alphabet owned Google has finally entered to in $400 billion global smartphone market, with two phones pixel and Pixel XL.

Company executives, echoing Apple's longstanding philosophy, said they were striving for tighter integration of hardware and software.

"The thinking is that if we can work on hardware and software together, we can innovate much better," Google hardware chief Rick Osterloh said in an interview with Reuters, citing a recent reorganization that united once-disparate hardware teams.

Under the new structure, the company has begun to take a much more integrated approach to things like supply chain management and design, added Mario Queiroz, a vice president of product management.

"The learnings from one product are benefiting another product," he said.

Today in this article we bring all the launches from Google event on the 4th Oct 2016 launch.

Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL

The Pixel and Pixel XL are the first-ever purely Google phones.

The Pixel has a 5-inch screen and the XL has a 5.5-inch screen, but other than that, they're essentially the same. The Pixel will also run the latest version of Android called Nougat, and Google claims it has the best camera ever put in a smartphone. Other than that, it has a lot of  other high-end features which you would have expected from a premium smartphone.

The Pixel will start at $649 and you can buy it unlocked from Google or through Verizon.

Chromecast Ultra

Chromecast Ultra

Chromecast got an upgrade with Ultra, a version that supports HDR, Dolby Vision, and 4K content. The basics of the Ultra are largely the same as its predecessors — a disc you plug into your TV — but it has now an Ethernet port integrated into the power adapter. It’s also more expensive, at $69. You can preorder the Ultra in November, and it ships in December. Google Play movies will also start streaming 4K content in November.

Daydream VR Headset

Daydream View lets you slot in the Pixel (and other Android phones in the future) and enjoy VR content.

The View has a soft fabric covering, similar to Facebook's Oculus Rift. It also comes with a remote packed with motion-control sensors for navigating menus and playing games.

Daydream View will cost $79 and goes on sale in November.

Google Home is a connected speaker similar to the Amazon Echo. It has Google's new Assistant inside and lets you control music, video, search queries, and smart appliances with your voice.

Home will cost $129 and go on sale in early November.

An easy-to-use WiFi router called Google WiFi

 Google WiFi

After last year’s foray into router partnerships with OnHub, Google is now making routers itself. The new system, called simply Google Wifi, is a multi-point network similar to Eero, letting you place modular router points throughout your house for maximum coverage. The system manages your connection as you move through the house, optimizing which router you're connected to. You can also actively manage the network through the app including, in the demo, the ability to kick your kids out of the internet by pressing "pause." A single router costs $129, while a three-pack costs $299. Preorders start in November and it ships in December.

Get assisted with Google Assistant

Google Assistant

Google Assistant is Google's answer to Apple's Siri, Amazon's Alexa, and Microsoft's Cortana.

It's making its debut on the new hardware products announced by Google, and will eventually be available on more Android devices and Google apps.

Assistant does everything you'd expect from an AI helper, but with the added benefit of Google's vast "Knowledge Graph," that's loaded with data no other company can match. Assistant is just getting started, and it will get smarter over time the more people uses it.
