From the Pixel 5 to the new Nest Audio, here's all the announcements from Google's event

Pixels, Chromecasts and more.

We're ticking towards October and that means we're going to be having a lot of tech news for the next while.


It was Google's turn on Wednesday night as it revealed a number of products at its Launch Night In event.

Let's take a look at what was unveiled...

Nest Audio

A major revamp of the original Google Home speaker.

Just as the Home Mini slid under the Nest banner, the Nest speaker lineup is being expanded once again to slot in the Nest Audio, which takes the position of the recently discontinued 2016 Google Home, at €99.99.

There's few surprises in the design with teasers during the summer alluding to the soft rounded edges and minimalist design, while having a premium appearance.


Google have said it's 75% louder and has 50% stronger bass than the original Google Home.

It sports a 19mm tweeter to hit high frequencies while a 75mm midwoofer pushes things out on the lower-end.

Keep an eye here for our upcoming review.

Chromecast with Google TV

What to say about the original Chromecast? We'll forever be grateful for helping us get over the arduous task of repeatedly plugging a HDMI cable into our laptop.


But the Chromecast has come along way since then, and is making the biggest leap yet the all-new Chromecast with Google TV.

The biggest change from previous iterations is the addition of a remote, which we're quite happy about. Yes we know your phone is the remote a lot of the time when using it nowadays, but we think the option of a remote will be quite useful.

Google is resurrecting the Google TV as an interface layer on top of the operating system powering the new Chromecast, Android TV.


It comes in three colors: gray, pink, and blue, costs €69.99, and is available to preorder now.

The Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G

The Pixel 5 is coming our way in October.

We recently got our hands on the midrange Pixel 4a and it's certainly one of the phones of the year so far.


The Pixel 5 is not going to compete with some of the powerhouse flagships on specs, but it's going to have it's own features to make you consider opting for it over the less expensive 4a.

It has a midrange Snapdragon 765G processor, but the 8GB of RAM should be enough to keep it sharp, while there's also a 90Hz display and it's water and dust proof.

Google has said its camera is as amazing as all the other Pixels and we don't doubt them on that front after all these years.

It's being released on 15 October and will cost €618.77 on the Google Store.

As for the Pixel 4a 5G... well, you know the way a lot of people got ratty there was no Pixel 4a XL this year? The 4a 5G is basically a 5G version of what the XL would have been.

It costs €490 and you can join the waiting list for one now.
