Google Releases New Smartphone
Google’s new smartphone has arrived. Google Pixel is ramping up virtual reality and coming with Google Assistant built-in (the company’s answer to Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri and Microsoft’s Cortana). Google also unveiled Google Home, a device like Amazon’s Echo but one that will use the Google Assistant AI to answer questions, order items immediately or communicate with smart appliances. The camera on the phone is reportedly much improved too, which makes sense since Pixel is launching side-by-side with Google’s new VR headset, Daydream VR. Pre-orders of the phone in early October came with a free headset. Daydream is a sleek-looking headset that comes with a controller. It will play VR content and games from Google or other developers.
