We’re listening to that the music on stage at Google I/O 2023 was being generated by Phenaki technology from Google Research, if you would like to learn extra in regards to the methods Google is displaying off its creativity prematurely of the massive present. 

Clearly machine {hardware} won’t be the one highlight proven on the stage at present.

Bard visualizations
Within the pre-show, we have been handled by a sequence of stay movies and visualizations led by composer Dan Deacon and created on the fly by Bard and different generative AI applied sciences from Google.

It’s one other indication that Google plans to make AI a centerpiece of Google I/O. A variety of what we noticed was created with a brand new Google text-to-music mannequin, which is obtainable now for preview entry.

What’s not fully clear is how a lot of the generative video – which was all fairly weird – was created on-the-fly and the way a lot was pre-built and synced to Deacon’s rap.

We’re lower than a half hour from the beginning of the Google I/O 2023 Keynote deal with from SVP of Units and Providers Rick Osterloh. What else would possibly Google announce, moreover the Pixel Fold, Pixel Pill, and the rumored Pixel 7a telephone? Properly, Google has been identified to pre-announce units fairly some time prematurely. 

In reality, we discovered in regards to the Pixel Pill for the primary time final 12 months on the Google I/O 2022 convention, and we’re simply at present getting our first hands-on take a look at the brand new machine. So, it is potential that Google might announce new merchandise that we can’t see for a 12 months or extra. It is nail-biting stress, but additionally nice enjoyable. 

We anticipate a Pixel 8 household to point out up later within the 12 months, if the Pixel telephones keep on their common schedule. It is potential Google might exhibit new Pixel units, or expertise that might seem inside these telephones. A Pixel Extremely telephone has been a long-rumored product that hasn’t taken a bow. Maybe we’ll see that one at present. 

With Apple speaking up future augmented actuality plans, it is also potential we might be taught extra about Google’s head-mounted wearable concepts. The corporate has proven a prototype of a stay translation machine that exhibits textual content on glasses as you might have a dialog throughout languages. We would like to see extra of that at present.

Are you hungry for Google information? How a few rooster sandwich, just like the one which Google is serving attendees at Google I/O 2023? Appears tasty, similar to these new Pixel telephones. We’ve not gotten official phrase from Google in regards to the Pixel 7a, however we all know that the Pixel Fold is coming, as Google confirmed it themselves lower than every week in the past. 

Current leaks have recommended that the Pixel Fold can be very expensive and really skinny. It can value about as a lot as Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 4, except Sammy drops the value for the Z Fold 5, which appears unlikely in at present’s inflationary financial local weather. 

We’re unsure how skinny the Pixel Fold can be, however a latest leak says it is going to be the thinnest foldable, not less than in markets the place Google is bought. That leaves out China, so Xiaomi should still be protected with its Xiaomi Combine Fold 2, which is seemingly solely 5.4mm skinny when open. We’ll see if Google can beat that at present.

Google’s lead in picture magic (assume magic eraser and unblur) is bound to proceed with what we anticipate are some new picture methods. Nobody has leaked something important, however the buzz is that we’re gonna be wowed. 

Naturally, if some new picture methods fail to materialize, we’ll be disillusioned, but it surely appears virtually sure that your complete Pixel telephone line can have some new picture powers that, whereas they might solely apply to the most recent Pixel 7 and Pixel Fold, might work their approach down the road. We do anticipate the rumored new 7a can have a few of these expertise, no matter they might be, as properly.

In fact, we won’t wait to check out all the Pixel-exclusive picture enhancing options on the primary Pixel pill. It is enjoyable fixing up previous pictures on a telephone display, however on a pill we must always actually be capable of get some severe picture work completed.

We all know in regards to the new telephones and the Pixel Pill, however what in regards to the Pixel Watch 2? We’ve not heard a lot, so we’re guessing there can be a point out from the stage, however nothing to see readily available. We would like to be improper!

There are additionally loads of software program apps and options that Google might replace, exterior its hottest Android 14 and Bard developments. There could possibly be additions to Google Maps, Android Auto, YouTube and content material creation, or any variety of Google channels. Google’s mother or father Alphabet has its fingers in so many pies, you by no means know what’s going to stick. 

We’ll have hands-on with the brand new merchandise arising quickly, as quickly as Google is finished with its spiel. Within the meantime, our E-i-C Lance Ulanoff resides it up in cloudy California. Sorry in regards to the climate, Lance.

A lot has been product of the phone-related bulletins anticipated to return from this 12 months’s Google I/O showcase, however issues have been far quieter on the audio entrance. If Becky Scarrott, TechRadar’s Senior Audio Workers Author, had her approach, although, Google would unveil the Google Nest Audio Gen 2 at Google I/O 2023:

“The headline product reveal at I/O 2023 – in my goals. I do know I am within the minority right here (as lady in tech journalism, for starters) however I favored the inaugural September 2020 Nest Audio, a pleasant cuboid that aimed to carry sound high quality in even larger esteem than voice smarts. A noble purpose; one I additionally aspire to. 

It did not work out like that after all. A fast look at our Google Nest Audio evaluation reveals a speaker that excelled in smarts however missed the mark by way of element via the mids and trebles, additionally sounding harsh at larger volumes. 

However come on Google, you are giving up after one redesign? Certainly not. That pebble-colored, fabric-swathed second-gen. speaker had promise! And never as soon as was it ever mistaken for an air freshener in my house (sure Google Residence, I am taking a look at you) so look how far you got here already! I say give it one other shot – possibly take a look at the motive force array and integration. You bought this.”

The Google Pixel 7a is anticipated to interchange its predecessor, the Google Pixel 6a, as one of many finest low cost telephones to purchase in 2023 – however the presumed affordability of Google’s subsequent mid-ranger doesn’t imply it’ll skimp on options. 

We trawled via the telephone’s numerous leaked specs to look at the Google Pixel 7a vs iPhone 14, and the previous handset might properly problem Apple’s newest vanilla iPhone in a number of vital areas. 

As an illustration, whereas the Google Pixel 7a seems more likely to boast an identical 6.1-inch OLED show to the iPhone 14, rumors counsel it’ll really sport a superior battery (4,410mAh vs 3,279mAh) and most important digital camera (64MP vs 12MP). Your transfer, Apple.

Google’s AI-powered chatbot, Bard, had this to say when TechRadar’s Computing Evaluations editor, Michelle Rae Uy, requested what we what we must always anticipate to see at this 12 months’s Google I/O showcase:

And now let’s contact on the ability behind these units – Android 14. Although none of them will run Android 14 at launch, all three new units can be eligible for a day one replace, as will present Pixels going all the way in which again to the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5. 

Google usually doesn’t tell us the massive Android adjustments until IO, although developer and public beta releases have already given us a slight peek at what to anticipate. Aside from enhancements for tablets and foldables, Google says that multi-device experiences are going to be an enormous a part of Android 14. 

Are we going to see Apple-style cross-device options make their approach to Android in the end? With Close by Share coming to Home windows and ChromeOS, Google’s already constructed some semblance of Apple-like integration. Now, with a close to full {hardware} slate (RIP Pixelbook), the corporate has an opportunity of constructing it work.

Let’s not overlook the Pixel Pill. Google’s third Pixel pill had already been introduced eventually 12 months’s Google IO, and now it is more likely to be made accessible for pre-order shortly after this occasion if our instincts are proper. 

Google isn’t any stranger to tablets; the Pixel C preceded Pixel telephones and the Pixel Slate was a well-built one. Google’s pill ambitions have been neutered by poor software program in each cases, and that is an space the place the Pixel Pill will hopefully do higher.

The corporate has promised us a deal with with Materials You’s customization, Android 13, and the brand new Tensor G2 processor to maintain all of it flying. 

Going again to Android 13, Google has completed a variety of work to make its Android look good on giant screens. Areas like the house display, the lock display, and the notification middle now work higher on tablets. Past that floor stage, the corporate has even up to date several of its apps (opens in new tab) from Google Photographs to Google TV to benefit from the large-screen canvas you may be getting. With Android 14, Google plans to enhance that, although how precisely, we’ll have to attend to seek out out. 

Google Pixel 7

One other one of many devices we anticipate to see at Google I/O is the Google Pixel 7a, the following entry in Google’s extra budget-friendly line of smartphones. In accordance with leakers who have gotten their palms on the machine early it will have a 6.1-inch OLED show, a 64MP most important digital camera, and is powered by Google’s Tensor G2 chip.

If that sounds fairly thrilling to you and you may’t wait to choose up Google’s subsequent smartphone for your self you then could be in luck. A number of individuals are seemingly promoting the Pixel 7a early on the US Market platform Swappa (opens in new tab), although you would possibly wish to wait.

That is as a result of the most cost effective itemizing value for the Google Pixel 7a on the time of writing is $460, barely costlier than the $449 we anticipate the machine to promote for within the US. Within the UK and Australia, we anticipate the handset to value £399 / AU$749 respectively, however we’ll have to attend and see what Google broadcasts at I/O later at present.

In addition to all of the thrilling Pixel Fold and Pixelbook goodies being unveiled throughout I/O, don’t overlook in regards to the subsequent iteration of Google’s Pixel Watch. 

The rumor mill has been quiet on this for a very long time. Because the first Google Pixel Watch launched final 12 months, weren’t positive if a Pixel Watch 2 announcement was coming throughout Google I/O, or even when one would arrive in any respect this 12 months. Would the Pixel Watch observe within the Apple Watch’s footsteps with an annual launch, or would it not share greater than software program with Fitbit and convey out new fashions solely each few years?

Now I/O is right here, it’s trying probably the Pixel Watch 2 can be revealed through the keynote. Leaker Evan Blass tweeted the identify “Pixel Watch 2” lately, hinting that not less than an announcement, if not a full demonstration, is imminent. Final 12 months, Google teased the Pixel Watch months earlier than its full October launch date, and we’re betting the sequel will observe an identical sample.

Ever puzzled what the ‘I/O’ bit in ‘Google I/O’ stands for? Google has helpfully answered that very query this morning, posting a blog entry (opens in new tab) the place it explains how the occasion obtained its identify.

The put up is an extended and attention-grabbing dive into the historical past of Google I/O, which celebrates its fifteenth birthday this 12 months. I like to recommend studying the entire thing if you are interested in all issues Google, however the quick reply is that I/O is definitely 1/0: the characters are purported to be the primary two digits in a googol, the quantity that gave the corporate its identify. So there you go!

Sticking with Google’s first foldable telephone, a last-minute Google Pixel Fold teaser video has proven it off in full. 

The video – which we have included above, assuming Google hasn’t eliminated it but – exhibits the telephone being utilized by numerous NBA stars. It isn’t clear whether or not Google meant to share it forward of I/O, but it surely’s out within the wild now anyway!

Among the many causes to be cheerful in regards to the Pixel Fold are the truth that it is rumored to have a much bigger battery than the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4. We do not but know precisely how huge it is going to be, after all, but it surely’s been tipped to have a capability of between 4,500mAh and 5,000mAh. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 (pictured), in distinction, has solely a 4,400mAh cell.

A much bigger battery would not at all times equal higher battery life – the scale of the display, effectivity of the processor and plenty of different components can affect that – but it surely’s an excellent begin. And on condition that Google is seemingly pitching the Fold as having “Past 24-hour battery life”, we’re optimistic about this one.

So, what is the machine that we’re most enthusiastic about (hopefully) getting an enormous reveal later at present? Personally, it might be the Google Pixel Fold. We all know it will positively characteristic at I/O 2023, after Google itself teased the Fold on Star Wars Day. And we additionally assume we all know fairly a bit in regards to the machine after months of rumors and leaks.

The largest of those got here from Jon Prosser of FrontPageTech a couple of weeks in the past. He launched a seven-minute video teasing full particulars in regards to the Pixel Fold, and if the small print he shared are correct then there’s motive to be very excited certainly.

Pixel 7a colors in grey, silver, and light blue, according to Evan Blass.

It covers all the massive bulletins we’re anticipating, together with the Pixel Fold, Pixel Pill, and what could possibly be a very talked-about Pixel 7a. It is simply probably the most anticipated mid-range Android telephone of the season.

Whereas the Bard updates and Pixel Watch 2 could be speculative, Android 14 is a lock as one of many stars of the event present. We do surprise, although, if Google can do sufficient to make Android cool once more.
