The biggest buzzword during Google’s Made By Google event was ‘ambient computing’. Google used it the most when it unveiled the new Pixel Buds, which are now truly wireless headphones. The previous generation of this product was a neckband-style pair of headphones. The new Pixel Buds will be launching in 2020, at $179 (roughly Rs. 12,750).

The Pixel Buds are a pair of in-ear headphones, which look a bit like Samsung Galaxy Buds. Google claimed that these will feature noise isolation, and will last for five hours on a single charge (up to 24 hours via the charging case). You can access Google Assistant via the Pixel Buds, which are sweat and water resistant.

During its Made By Google event, the company announced that its Stadia game streaming service will launch on November 19. At launch games such as Red Dead Redemption 2, Mortal Kombat 11, Kine, and more will be available. Google claims that you can play these games on any device with the only required purchase being the controller that Google sells.

On the privacy front, the company announced that it will allow people to delete searches just by asking Google Assistant to do so. This applies only to searches logged by Google Assistant.

The company also revealed a new Chrome OS laptop called Pixelbook Go. This product will be available in Just Black, and Not Pink colours, starting at $649 (roughly Rs. 46,000). The device will ship with Intel Core m3 processors on the base variant, and Intel Core i7 processors on the higher-end variant. The pricing for higher end variants was not revealed. Pixelbook Go has a 13.3-inch display, weighs around 900 grams, is 13mm thick, and delivers up to 12 hours of battery life, according to Google. Pixelbook Go will feature 8GB or 16GB RAM, and will ship with 64GB, 128GB, or 256GB of storage. It will go up for pre-orders today.
