Summer season is coming to an in depth, which might solely imply one factor: Google’s annual fall occasion is formally across the nook. Sure, it is true — the subsequent Made by Google launch is only a few quick weeks away. Whereas some early bulletins may imply fewer surprises than normal, we nonetheless count on to see some unannounced {hardware}. This is every thing we learn about this fall’s Made by Google occasion.


When is the Made by Google occasion?

Google often holds its fall launch in October, and this yr isn’t any exception. The subsequent Made by Google occasion is ready for Thursday, October sixth, 2022, at 10 AM ET. This yr’s launch contains some in-person attendance in New York, however you may additionally be capable to watch from residence by tuning into the corporate’s livestream. Simply head to the official occasion web page that day and you will be able to go — no registration required.

How can I watch the Made by Google occasion?

Google will livestream the occasion on YouTube. This is how one can watch the October Made by Google occasion with the Android Police workers.

What is going to Google announce at its occasion?

It feels like this yr’s launch is stacking as much as be a giant one. From telephones to wearables and past, search for Google to pack a complete lot into this occasion.

Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Professional

There is no have to beat across the bush right here: Google will launch the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Professional in October. That is not rampant hypothesis, both — the corporate confirmed as a lot in its announcement. Each units have been unveiled again at I/O in Might, doubtless in an try and keep away from rampant leaks and rumors as in years previous. sadly, this try has been largely unsuccessful; early Pixel 7 models have appeared on eBay quite a few occasions in the previous few months, to say nothing of the same old hype cycle.

Supply: Google

All informed, we’re anticipating iterative updates to the design Google unveiled final yr. It is sensible — the present Pixel look is daring, putting, and simply recognizable. Google is constructing a model for Pixel in an try and compete with the perfect telephones round proper now. Even when this look is not your cup of tea, it is comprehensible why they’d preserve it round for one more yr. Anticipate the same old spherical of efficiency enhancements, digital camera tweaks, and shock software program options. In different phrases, it is a Pixel launch.

Pixel Watch

There’s one different machine confirmed to make an look in October: the Pixel Watch. Google’s first wearable arrives with a mountain of hype and expectations, together with some severe competitors from rival-turned-partner Samsung. We have waited a very long time for a first-party Put on OS machine, and the Pixel Watch can have a lot to show when it arrives on retailer cabinets following the occasion.

With a clean, glossy, one-size-fits-most design, a proprietary band system, and huge bezels across the fringe of the show, it is certain to be divisive amongst potential patrons. Actually, whether or not this watch is a hit or not is prone to come down to 2 issues: software program and efficiency. We count on to see loads of Fitbit integration with the Pixel Watch, shoring it up as a trendy substitute for devoted health trackers. Sadly, the efficiency facet of issues is murky. With rumors of an older, outdated SoC and a comparatively small battery, it may not maintain as much as what we have seen from the perfect smartwatches out there proper now.

Nest {hardware}

Whereas we all know some type of Nest {hardware} will make an look at this yr’s occasion — Google’s weblog publish informed us as a lot — it is unclear what we’ll really see. We have heard rumblings of a refreshed Nest Wifi router with Wi-Fi 6E help, and contemplating it handed by the FCC final month, it appears as doubtless as something. It is also been almost a yr since Google informed us a second-gen wired Nest Doorbell was coming in 2022. If it would not present up on this occasion, it appears secure to say it is lifeless.


Though we initially anticipated Google’s long-rumored 1080p Chromecast with Google TV might seem at its October occasion, it seems we did not want to attend. The corporate introduced it two weeks early on September twenty second, and it is out there for buy proper now.

It is at all times attainable a shock high-end Chromecast — one thing we have been begging for all yr — might seem at this yr’s Made by Google occasion, we would not put our cash on it. Google merchandise have a behavior of leaking out nicely prematurely of their precise launch date, and we have heard nothing a couple of potential super-powered streaming stick. This is hoping for 2023.

Pixel pill

Now we’re moving into the “shock” class. Though Google introduced its Pixel pill at I/O alongside the Pixel 7 collection, it is destined for a 2023 launch date. The corporate hasn’t revealed a lot about it, although proof continues to pile up that it will pull double-duty as a dockable good hub, just like the Nest Hub Max in display screen measurement. That might imply this machine falls underneath the Nest department at Made by Google.

Nonetheless, we do not count on to see a lot of it. Though a tease is not out of the query — once more, I/O has set loads of precedents right here — Google’s weblog publish saying this occasion particularly mentions that all of the units introduced shall be shoppable on the identical day on the firm’s web site. Whereas that is nice information for anybody hoping to pre-order the Pixel 7, it additionally means we’re unlikely to see a lot of the Pixel pill. Nevertheless, it’s an introduced product, and even when it isn’t prepared for the vacations, a small teaser to maintain Android customers excited — and from shopping for another glorious pill out there — is not outdoors the realm of chance.

Pixel foldable

If the Pixel pill is an unlikely — albeit potential — shock at this yr’s Made by Google launch, the Pixel foldable is extra like a pipe dream. In contrast to the slate, Google has but to substantiate any folding Pixel cellphone exists, and it looks as if saying one alongside the Pixel 7 and seven Professional might sway customers away from its newest flagship cellphone. Contemplating the corporate’s current affinity for saying {hardware} forward of time, it is attainable this machine will make its first public look on October sixth. We simply would not rely on it.
