In October, Google announced some great new technologies which leads us a little bit further into the future.
From Google’s new smart phones to its new smart home offerings, here’s everything we hold back from their announcement.

Google Pixel and Pixel XL

We heard about the pixel some time ago, but now we know finally all about it ! First, Google announce not one but two smart phones for our greatest happiness.

Both devices feature Google’s latest and greatest version of Android, as well as a top-notch camera, fast charging, and virtual reality.
Let's take a look a little bit closer. Both phones are equipped with new technologies such as : a  5.5-inch display for the Pixel XL, a 5-inches for the Pixel, a Qualcomn processor, the Snapdragon 821, coupled with 4GB of RAM. Apart from that, the two devices come in either 32GB or 128GB options, a USB-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a 5MP front-facing camera.

The saddest thing about this, is that Google didn't announce the release for a lot of european country, only for Germany, France and England.

Google Home

Earlier this year, some of you may have heard about the new Google Home. Now we have a few details about this little thing.

What's Google Home ? It's a smart home device that features Google Assistant (it's a bit like Amazon Echo). The device offers you a way to access information from Google, information from your apps and services and even control your smart home? Isn't this cool ?

Google Wifi

If the Google Home talks to your geeky side, check out the new Google Wifi.

Google Wifi is a smart Wi-Fi router that includes intelligent software aimed at maintaining a decent speed no matter how many connections you have. How ? With the Google's Network Assist which will help you to handle more efficiently your network.

Chromecast Ultra

For those like me who love to watch Netflix on your TV with your smart phone, check out the Google Chromecast.

What's new ? 4K streaming, HDR support, Ethernet port, improvement of the Wi-Fi component, ...
Small problem, the price: $70 instead of $35 for the previous Chromecast. But it's still not that expensive for those you want to try it !
