Summer time 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 following Made by Google launch is only a few quick weeks away. Whereas some early bulletins may imply fewer surprises than common, we nonetheless count on to see some unannounced {hardware}. Here is every little thing we find out 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 is not any exception. The subsequent Made by Google occasion is about for Thursday, October sixth, 2022, at 10 AM ET. This yr’s launch consists of some in-person attendance in New York, however you will additionally be capable to watch from house 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.

If you would like a reminder earlier than the stream kicks off, you possibly can optionally add the occasion to your Google Calendar.

What’s going to Google announce at its occasion?

It appears like this yr’s launch is stacking as much as be an enormous one. From telephones to wearables and past, search for Google to pack an entire lot into this occasion.

Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Professional

There is not any must 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 gadgets had been unveiled again at I/O in Could, possible in an try to 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 advised, we’re anticipating iterative updates to the design Google unveiled final yr. It is sensible — the present Pixel look is daring, hanging, and simply recognizable. Google is constructing a model for Pixel in an try to compete with the very best telephones round proper now. Even when this look is not your cup of tea, it is comprehensible why they’d hold it round for an additional yr. Count on the same old spherical of efficiency enhancements, digicam 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 critical 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 easy, smooth, 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 more likely 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 classy 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 won’t maintain as much as what we have seen from the very best smartwatches accessible 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 advised us as a lot — it is unclear what we’ll truly see. We have heard rumblings of a refreshed Nest Wifi router with Wi-Fi 6E help, and contemplating it handed by way of the FCC final month, it appears as possible as something. It is also been practically a yr since Google advised us a second-gen wired Nest Doorbell was coming in 2022. If it does not present up on this occasion, it appears protected to say it is useless.


Technically, Google’s Chromecast gadgets are thought-about sensible house devices, which means a brand new streaming stick might qualify as one of many Nest gadgets confirmed to look in October. Nonetheless, we’re separating it into its personal class as a result of, at this level, the 1080p Chromecast with Google TV has leaked for the higher a part of a yr. Not too long ago, we have even seen pictures of it — shock, it appears to be like like one more Chromecast.

Though this streaming stick is certain to go away high-end customers disillusioned, for those who’ve been ready for a low-cost Google TV machine to throw within the bed room or right into a visitor room, this could be the right possibility.

Pixel pill

Now we’re stepping into the “shock” class. Though Google introduced its Pixel pill at I/O alongside the Pixel 7 sequence, 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 sensible hub, much like the Nest Hub Max in display screen dimension. That would imply this machine falls below 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 gadgets introduced will probably 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. Nonetheless, it’s an introduced product, and even when it is not prepared for the vacations, a small teaser to maintain Android customers excited — and from shopping for every other glorious pill accessible — is not exterior the realm of risk.

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 verify any folding Pixel telephone exists, and it looks as if saying one alongside the Pixel 7 and seven Professional might sway customers away from its newest flagship telephone. Contemplating the corporate’s current affinity for saying {hardware} forward of time, it is potential this machine will make its first public look on October sixth. We simply would not depend on it.
