Google – September Press Event 2015


>>Chelsea Maughan: GOOD
MORNING. WE’RE SO EXCITED TO HAVE YOU
HERE TODAY. IT’S A BIG DAY FOR GOOGLE. AS YOU ALL KNOW. AND
SHORTLY WE’LL HAVE FOLKS STREAMING IN LIVE FROM AROUND
THE WORLD ON YouTube. I’M REALLY EXCITED TO INTRODUCE
A VERY SPECIAL GUEST WHO HAS BEEN PRETTY BUSY LATELY.
ESPECIALLY THIS YEAR. WHETHER HE’S BRINGING FREE WIFI AROUND
THE WORLD OR CELEBRATING GOOGLE’S 17TH BIRTHDAY, HE’S
ALWAYS THINKING ABOUT OUR PRODUCTS AND HOW TO MAKE THEM
BETTER FOR OUR USERS. PLEASE JOIN ME IN WELCOMING OUR CEO,
SUNDAR PICHAI. [ APPLAUSE ]
>>Sundar Pichai: GOOD MORNING: GOOD TO SEE ALL OF YOU. IT’S
BEEN A CRAZY FEW DAYS. I’VE BEEN SPENDING TIME RECEIVING
THE INDIAN PRIME MINISTER AFTER
GREAT EXCITEMENT IN THE VALLEY, CELEBRATING THE MOON FESTIVAL
WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS. I WAS TRYING TO CATCH THE BLOOD MOON
A COUPLE OF NIGHTS AGO. ALL I
SAW WAS THE REGULAR WHITE MOON.
BUT THANKS TO YouTube, I THINK I
SAW THE REAL DEAL. HOPEFULLY YOU ALL HAD BETTER LUCK.
BEING HERE THIS MORNING TO TALK ABOUT PRODUCTS, ESPECIALLY
AROUND COMPUTING, WHICH IS NEAR AND DEAR TO MY HEART.
COMPUTING IS THE FOUNDATION OF A LOT OF
THINGS WE DO. IT’S HOW USERS PHOTOGRAPHY USERS INTERFACE WITH TECHNOLOGY, AND FOR US, THE WAY
WE DO IT IS BY INVESTING IN LARGE OPEN ECOSYSTEMS PLATFORMS
WHICH WE BUILD WITH EVERYONE, AND THAT HELPS US DO THIS AT
SCALE. AND THE SCALE AT WHICH
EVERYTHING IS WORKING IS PRETTY BREATHTAKING TO SEE.
JUST OVER A YEAR AGO, AT GOOGLE I/O, WE ANNOUNCED ANDROID HAD
1 BILLION 30-DAY ACTIVE DEVICES ACROSS THE WORLD. FAST-FORWARD
TO TODAY. WE NOW HAVE 1.4 BILLION 30-DAY ACTIVE
DEVICES WHICH WE SEE IN ANDROID AROUND THE WORLD.
SO WE’VE ADDED 400 MILLION ACTIVE DEVICES, AND THE
MOMENTUM IS HAPPENING ARCH THE WORLD.
ESPECIALLY IN EMERGING ECONOMIES. IN MANY, MANY
PLACES, IN COUNTRIES LIKE INDONESIA AND VIETNAM, ANDROID
IS LITERALLY DOUBLED IN THE LAST
YEAR. AND WHAT’S EXCITING ABOUT
THIS IS IN MOST OF THESE CASES, THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE
ADOPTING A SMARTPHONE FOR THE FIRST TIME. SO WE ARE WELL ON
OUR WAY TO BRINGING THE NEXT BILLION USERS ON LINE.
WE CARE ABOUT MAKING SURE THERE IS ENTRY-LEVEL HIGH-QUALITY
AFFORDABLE SMARTPHONES FOR THESE
USERS AS WELL., WHICH IS WHY WE DO ANDROID ONE. WE’VE EXPANDED
THE PROGRAM TO MANY COUNTRIES. WE RECENTLY LAUNCHED IT IN
TURKEY ABOUT A MONTH AGO AND ANDROID PHONE HAS BEEN THE
BEST-SELLING PHONE IN TURKEY SINCE THEN. WE SEE THE SAME
MOMENTUM HERE IN THE U.S. AS WELL. IF WE LOOK AT EDUCATION,
BY THE END OF THIS YEAR, THERE WILL BE MORE CHROMEBOOKS THAN
EVERY OTHER DEVICE COMBINED IN U.S. SCHOOLS. AND WE ARE
BEGINNING TO SEE THE SAME MOMENTUM OUTSIDE OF THE U.S. AS
WELL. IN FACT, IN THE U.S., WE WERE LOOKING AT DATA IN
SEPTEMBER. EVERY SINGLE DAY, THERE ARE 30,000 NEW
CHROMEBOOKS WHICH GET ACTIVATED, SO 30,000
NEW KIDS FOR THE FIRST TIME — MANY OF THEM FOR THE FIRST
TIME — GET ACCESS TO COMPUTING IN THEIR SCHOOLS. WE WANT TO
SELL COMPANIES AS WELL. WE ANNOUNCED ANDROID FOR WORK
ABOUT A YEAR AGO AND ALREADY IN THE
U.S. THERE ARE OVER 10,000 COMPANIES WHICH HAVE EITHER —
WHICH ARE EITHER TESTING, PARTIALLY DEPLOYED OR FULLY
DEPLOYING ANDROID FOR WORK. THESE INCLUDE IMPORTANT
INSTITUTIONS LIKE THE WORLD BANK, U.S. ARMY, GUARDIANLIFE,
ET CETERA. THIS BRINGS US TO TODAY. WHAT
WE DO EVERY YEAR IS WE TRY TO PUSH THE STATE OF THE ART AND
PUSH THE NEXT GENERATION OF COMPUTING FORWARD. AND TO DO
THAT, WE BUILD HARDWARE. AND THE REASON WE BUILD HARDWARE IS
SO THAT WE CAN WORK TOGETHER AS WE BUILD THE NEXT VERSION OF
THE OPERATING SYSTEM, WE BUILD THE
HARDWARE ALONG WITH OUR ECOSYSTEM PARTNERS SO THAT WE
CAN GUIDE THE ECOSYSTEM FORWARD.
AND WE DO THAT WITH OUR NEXUS DEVICES. YOU WILL HEAR FROM
THE TEAM ABOUT IT TODAY. THIS
YEAR, WE’VE GONE A STEP FURTHER. YOU
KNOW, WE HAVE A MORE COMPREHENSIVE LINEUP. WE HAVE
THOUGHT ABOUT THE RANGE OF WHAT’S POSSIBLE. AND MORE
IMPORTANTLY, FIVE THOUGHT ABOUT HOW DO WE TAKE IT TO MARKET.
WE HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT NOT JUST THE
PURCHASE OF THESE DEVICES, BUT THE POST-PURCHASE EXPERIENCE
AND YOU’LL HEAR ABOUT THAT FROM THE
TEAM. IN ADDITION, WE’VE HAD A PIXEL
TEAM WHOSE GOAL HAS BEEN SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT. THEIR GOAL
HAS BEEN FOR BUILD ASPIRATIONAL DEVICES SO THEY CAN GUIDE THE
ECOSYSTEM INTO NEWER AREAS. WE DID PIXEL FOR THE CHROMEBOOK TO
SHOW WHAT’S POSSIBLE FOR THE CHROMEBOOK MODEL WITH THE PUMP
SCREEN, NEW TOUCHPADS AND MORE RECENT. THE SAME TEAM HAS BEEN
HARD AT WORK FOR THE FIRST ANDROID DEVICE. FOCUSED ON
PRODUCTIVITY AND WE CALL IT THE PIXEL C AND YOU’LL HEAR ABOUT
IT FROM THE TEAM TODAY.
WE ARE, OF COURSE, THINKING BEYOND PHONES AND TABLETS. WE
HAVE SPOKEN BEFORE ABOUT THE MULTISCREEN WORLD. USERS HAVE
ACCESS TO COMPUTING IN SEVERAL CONTEXTS THROUGHOUT THEIR DAY
TO DAY LIVES, INCLUDING IN THEIR
LIVING ROOM. WE HAVE TAKEN A VERY DIFFERENT APPROACH TO
EXECUTING IN COMPUTING IN THALISM. WE DO IT USING
CHROMECAST AND IT BETS ON THE PHONE AS THE CENTER OF YOUR
EXPERIENCE. AND THE CHROMECAST TEAM HAS A
SET OF EXCITING UPDATES FOR YOU AS WELL.
SO IN THIS MULTISCREEN WORLD, IT’S EVEN MORE IMPORTANT FOR US
AS GOOGLE TO DO THE HARD WORK SO
THAT THE USER EXPERIENCE IS SIMPLE AND DELIGHTFUL FOR
USERS. AND INCREASINGLY, WE DO THAT BY
DOING HARD AND DEEP COMPUTER SCIENCE, DEEP LEARNING, TO MAKE
SURE THE END USER EXPERIENCE IS MUCH EASIER ON USERS. YOU’LL
SEE MACHINE LEARNING AT WORK ON — EITHER ON NOW ON TAP OR
GOOGLE PHOTOS, AND A FEW OTHER EXAMPLES YOU’LL HEAR ABOUT
TODAY. ALL OF THIS MATTERS TO USERS ONLY IN THE FORM OF THE
END USER EXPERIENCE THEY SEE. THEY CARE ABOUT THE
APPLICATIONS AND SERVICES THEY USE. AND SO
WE OBVIOUSLY WORK WITH MANY, MANY DEVELOPERS TO BRING ALL OF
THIS TOGETHER, AND GOOGLE PLAY IS THE ECOSYSTEM WHICH BRINGS
ALL OF THIS TOGETHER FOR USERS. WELL. I’M EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE
THAT TODAY, GOOGLE PLAY IS NOW OVER 1 BILLION 30-DAY ACTIVITY
USERS TO THE MODEL IS AGAIN WORKING AT SCALE AND THIS
ECOSYSTEM IS WHAT MAKES EVERYTHING WE DO POSSIBLE.
SO WITH THAT, I’M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO THE TEAM, TO TALK
ABOUT WHAT’S UP AHEAD. I KNOW THERE HAVE BEEN SOME RUMORS,
BUT HOPEFULLY WE HAVE A FEW THINGS
TO SHARE WITH YOU AND HELP TELL THE END-TO-END STORY. SO WITH
THAT, LET ME INVITE DAVE BURKE. [ APPLAUSE ]>>Dave Burke: THANKS, SUNDAR.
NEXUS REPRESENTS THE LATEST IN POSSIBLE TECHNOLOGY, DIRECTLY
FROM GOOGLE. IT’S THE MOST ADVANCED ANDROID SOFTWARE BUILT
INTO INNOVATIVE HARDWARE DEVELOPED JOINTLY BY GOOGLE AND
OUR DEVICE PARTNERS. NEXUS IS ANDROID AS WE’VE DESIGNED IT,
SHOWCASING THE VERY LATEST AND BEST IN MATERIAL DESIGN AND THE
NEWEST ANDROID SOFTWARE. AND TODAY, I’M SUPER EXCITED TO
ANNOUNCE NOT ONE, BUT TWO, AMAZING NEW NEXUS PHONES, THE
NEXUS 5X AND THE NEXUS 6P. SO LET’S START WITH THE NEXUS
6P. NOW, I’VE BEEN USING THIS DEVICE FOR SEVERAL WEEKS AND
I’M ABSOLUTELY LOVING IT. WE’VE
PARTNERED WITH HUAWEI TO CREATE THE FIRST-EVER FULL
METAL-BODIED NEXUS PHONE. IT’S CRAFTED FROM
AERONAUTICAL-GRADE ANODIZED ALUMINUM, AND THE PHONE IS ONLY
7.5 MILLIMETERS THIN, AND IT HAS
BEAUTIFUL DIAMOND-CUT EDGES AND A SCULPTED BACK THAT MAKE IT
FEEL REALLY COMFORTABLE TO HOLD.
THE PHONE IS AVAILABLE IN THREE COLORS: FROST WHITE, ALUMINUM,
AND GRAPHITE. NOW, THE NEXUS 6P HAS AN
INCREDIBLY VIBRANT 5.7-INCH WQHD
AMOLED DISPLAY AND WE’VE MAXIMIZED THE AREA OF THE
SCREEN TO BE 74% OF THE OVERALL
DEVICE. SO YOU GET AN AMAZINGLY
IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE WITHOUT THE
PHONE FEELING TOO BIG. THIS IS A 5.7-INCH PHONE, BUT
ROUGHLY THE SAME SIZE AS MANY 5.5-INCH DEVICES.
NOW, INSIDE THE PHONE PACKS THE LATEST 64-BIT PROCESSOR,
POWERED BY AN ALMOST 3 1/2 AMP-HOUR
BATTERY. THE BRAND-NEW USB TYPE-C PORT BRINGS FAST
CHARGING, SO THE NEXUS 6P CAN CHARGE FULLY IN ABOUT HALF THE
TIME OF AN iPHONE 6 PLUS. AND OF COURSE, TYPE-C GETS YOU
THE MUCH MORE CONVENIENT REVERSIBLE PLUG, SO NO MORE
GUESSING WHICH WAY IS UP. YOU’LL ALSO NOTICE THE PHONE
HAS STEREO FORWARD-FACING SPEAKERS
FOR CRISP, CLEAR NOW, THE NEXUS 6P HAS THE BEST
CAMERA WE HAVE EVER PUT INTO A NEXUS DEVICE. SOUND. A 12.3
MEGAPIXEL SONY.IMAGING SENSOR WITH
ENORMOUS 1.55-MICRON PIXELS. THE 6P CAN PRODUCE STUNNING
IMAGES EVEN IN THE TOUGHEST OF LIGHTING CONDITIONS. WE’VE
ALSO INCORPORATED A HIGH-RESOLUTION 8 MEGAPIXEL
FRONT-FACING CAMERA WITH HDR+ SO YOU CAN GET THE WORLD’S BEST
SELFIES ON THIS PHONE. THE NEXUS 6P COMES WITH NEXUS
IMPRINT, A SEAMLESS WAY OF AUTHENTICATING WITH YOUR
FINGERPRINT. WE PUT AN INCREDIBLY FAST AND ACCURATE
FINGERPRINT SENSOR ON THE BACK OF THE PHONE TO COMPLEMENT THE
WAY YOU NATURALLY HOLD IT. ONE TOUCH WILL EFFORTLESSLY WAKE UP
THE DEVICE FOR SMOOTH, FAST ACCESS. AND, OF COURSE, NEXUS
IMPRINT WORKS SEAMLESSLY WITH ANDROID PAY FOR MAKING
PURCHASES IN STORES. THE NEXUS 6P RUNS THE LATEST
ANDROID 6.0 SOFTWARE CODE NAME MARSHMALLOW. LIKE ALL NEXUS
DEVICES IT RECEIVES THE LATEST SOFTWARE AND UPDATES DIRECTLY
FROM GOOGLE. OKAY. A FEW YEARS BACK WE
PARTNERED WITH LG TO BUILD A NEXUS 5, AND THIS WENT ON TO
BECOME ONE OF THE MOST LOVED AND POPULAR NEXUS PHONES WE’VE
EVER LAUNCHED. THIS YEAR WE’RE HELP TO ANNOUNCE AN UPDATE DO
THIS ICONIC PHONE WITH THE ALL-NEW NEXUS 5X. THE NEXT 5X
OFFERS TOP OF THE LINE PERFORMANCE IN A COMPACT,
AFFORDABLE PACKAGE. IT HAS A BEAUTIFUL 5.2-INCH DISPLAY, BUT
IT MAINTAINS THE TRADEMARK SCREEN-TO-WEIGHT RATIO COMING
IN AT ONLY 136 GRAMS WHICH IS AMAZING FOR A SCREEN OF THIS
SIZE. WE’VE ALSO INCREASED THE
BATTERY SIZE BY ALMOST 20% TO 2700-MILLIAMP HOURS.SO SO
SO.THE PHONE LASTS EVEN LONGER.
BENEATH THE 5.2-INCH DISPLAY IS A 64-BIT PROCESSOR GIVING YOU
WORLD-CLASS SPEED AND PERFORMANCE. AND THE NEXUS 5X
HAS SOME OF THE SAME GREAT HARDWARE FEATURES YOU’LL FIND
IN THE NEXUS 1/3. SO THE 1.55-MICRON CAMERA TO CAPTURE
FOR LIGHT, NEXUS IMPRINT FOR QUICK AND SECURE ACCESS AND, OF
COURSE, USB TYPE-C FOR FAST CHARGING. THE PHONE ITSELF IS
AVAILABLE IN CARBON WHITE — EXCUSE ME, CARBON BLACK, QUARTZ
WHITE, AND ICE BLUE. SO TO LEARN A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT
BOTH PHONES, LET ME WALK YOU THROUGH A COUPLE OF KEY
HARDWARE FEATURES IN MORE DETAIL.
SO LET’S TALK ABOUT CAMERA .. MODERN FLAGSHIP PHONES DO
PRETTY WELL FORM OUTDOOR SHOTS. IS WITH INDOOR PHOTOGRAPHY IN
LESS THAN IDEAL LIGHTING CONDITIONS AND THAT’S IRONIC
BECAUSE PEOPLE SPEND 20 HOURS A DAY INDOORS. THE NEXUS CAMERA
IS GREAT OUTDOORNESS BUT IT’S ALSO OPTIMIZED FOR INDOOR
PHOTOGRAPHERY IN THREE KEY WEIGHS. FIRST, AS I MENTIONED
EARLIER THE 13.3 MEGAPIXEL IMAGING SENSOR HAS.VERY LARGE
1.55-MICRON PIXELS PROVIDING EFFICIENCY THAN THE ORIGINAL
NEXUS 6. NOW, PIXEL SIZE IS NOT A DID I MINUTES USUALLY
HEAR PEOPLE TALK ABOUT BUT IT’S REALLY IMPORTANT TO THE QUALITY
OF THE PICTURE. LARGER PIXEL. PIXEL SIZE AT A GIVEN DENSITY,
THE MORE PHOTONS OF LIGHT SENSOR TO HAVE SO YOU HAVE LESS
MOTION BLUR. THAT COMBINED WITH THE FACT YOU HAVE LESS
HANDSHAKE ARTIFACTS OBVIATES THE NEED FOR OIS. IN FACT,
THIS SONY IMAGING SENSOR IS UNPRECEDENTED IN A MOBILE
PHONE. SECOND, WE’VE CHOSEN A FAST CLOSELY AUTO FOCUSED
TECHNOLOGY. IT USES A TIME OF FLIGHT IR LASER .. TO ENABLE
SAINT AUTO FOCUS OF CLOSE-BY ONSES A. WE’VE ITERATED
IMPROVED OUR HDR+.COM PEW STATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY AND ADDED
A NEW MODE THAT AUTOMATICALLY KICKS IN DURING LOW LIGHT.
LET’S COMPARE THE NEXUS 6P AGAINST ORIGINAL NEXUS 6 AND THE iPHONE 6S. WITH PHOTOS
TAKEN APT 23 MINUTES PAST SUNSET, THE THREE CAMERAS ARE
ROUGHLY COMPARABLE. NOW LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT 37 MINUTES
PAST.SUN.SET WHEN THINGS GET DARKER, YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE A
DIFFERENCE. IN LOW LIGHT ENVIRONMENTS, THE NEXUS 6P
OUTPERFORMS ALL OF THE OTHER PHONES .. WE’VE TESTED IN TERMS
OF BRIGHTNESS, DETAIL, LESS NOISE, AND GRINNIENESS AND
BETTER TONE MAPPING AND HERE’S A SELECTION OF PHOTOS GOOGLERS
HAVE BEEN ABLE TO TAKE WHILE OUT CASUALLY TESTING THE PHONE. THEY WERE TAKEN AROUND CAMPUS.
IT IS AN AMAZING CAMERA. ALSO, NEW.THIS YEAR IS
SLOW-MOTION VIDEO WHICH IS FUN IMMIGRANT FOR ACTION
GREAT FORM ACTION SCENES. AND THE NEXUS.5X CAN CAPTURE 120
FRAMES PER SECOND ANT NEXUS 6P UP TO 240 FRAMES PER SECOND.AND
THE GOOGLE PLAY APP NOW ALLOWS YOU TO EDIT.THE REGION INTEREST
OF THE VIDEO TO SLOW DOWN. AND, OF COURSE, BOTH PHONES
NATURAL.LY SUPPORT 4K.VIDEO RESOLUTION AT NORMAL RATE.
WE.HAVE ALSO ADDED SMART BURST.
IT CAPTURES CAPTURES PAGES AT A STAGGERING 30 FRAMES PER
SECOND. WE’VE ADDED THE ABILITY FOR YOU TO JUST DOUBLE
TAP THE POWER BUTTON TO SAINT TO
INSTANTLY LAUNCH THE CAMERA. THIS IS A DEDICATED LOWER POWER PROCESS.MODERN SMARTPHONES ARE AWARE OF THEIR ENVIRONMENTS.
WHAT .I AM IN A
POWER-EFFICIENT WAY. BY OFFLOADING SENSOR PROCESSING
FROM THE MAIN CPU I TO THE ANDROID
SENSOR HUB, WE’RE ABLE TO RUN AT
A FRACTION OF THE POWER BUDGET. SENSOR HUB IN A COUPLE OF
INNOVATIVE WAYS. SO FOR EXAMPLE, THE SENSOR HUB
PERFORMS ADVANCED ACTIVITY RECOGNITION,
SO IT’S SMART ENOUGH TO TRACK YOUR RUN OR YOUR BIKING AS SOON
AS YOU START, EVEN WITH THE SCREEN OFF, WITH MINIMAL POWER
OVERHEAD. THE SENSOR HUB CAN ALSO DETECT WHEN THE PHONE IS
PICKED UP, AND AUTOMATICALLY ACTIVATE THE AMBIENT DISPLAY.
AND THE AMBIENT DISPLAY SHOWS YOU THE TIME AND ANY PENDING
NOTIFICATIONS ON YOUR LOCK SCREEN IN A LOW-POWER
WHITE-ON-BLACK DISPLAY MODE. FROM THERE YOU CAN SEAMLESSLY
TOUCH THE SCREEN TO GO INTO A FULL POWER MODE AND INTERACT
WITH THE NOTIFICATIONS. SO THAT’S THE ANDROID SENSOR
HUB. I’D LIKE TO TALK ABOUT ANOTHER FEATURE, ANOTHER GREAT
HARDWARE FEATURE ON THESE PHONES
AND THAT’S FINGERPRINT. THE NEXUS 5X AND 6P COMES WITH
NEXUS IMPRINT WHICH MAKES UNLOCKING THE PHONES MORE
CONVENIENT AND SECURE AND LETS YOU ESCALATOR PAYMENTS AND
SIGN-IN OPERATIONS. NOW, FINGERPRINT SENSORS HAVE
BEEN AVAILABLE ON SEVERAL DEVICES IN THE ANDROID
ECOSYSTEM FOR A WHILE BUT NEXUS IMPRINT
IMPLEMENTS THE NEW FINGERPRINT SENSOR SUPPORT IN ANDROID 6.0
FOR THE FIRST TIME, WHICH OPENS UP FINGERPRINT RECOGNITION TO
THE ENTIRE APP ECOSYSTEM. THE NEXUS IMPRINT SENSOR
PROVIDES AMAZING PERFORMANCE. REGISTERING A FINGER TAKES
LITERALLY JUST A COUPLE OF SECONDS. ONCE TRAINED, THE
SENSOR CAN RECOGNIZE A SINGLE FINGER IN LESS THAN
600 MILLISECONDS. IT’S CONVENIENT AND SECURE, AND THE
SENSOR PERFORMS WITH AN INCREDIBLY LOW FALSE REJECT
RATE, SO IT ALMOST NEVER FAILS. WHAT’S REALLY COOL IS THAT
NEXUS IMPRINT GETS BETTER OVER TIME,
WITH EACH USE IT LEARNS MORE ABOUT YOUR UNIQUE FINGERPRINT.
SO TO UNLOCK MY DEVICE WITH NEXUS IMPRINT, ALL I HAVE TO DO
IS TAP THE SENSOR AT THE BACK AND IT SIMULTANEOUSLY WAKES UP
THE APP’S PROCESSOR AND UNLOCKS THE PHONE. IT’S INCREDIBLY
SMOOTH AND LIGHTNING FAST. FINGERPRINT UNLOCKING IS SUPER
CONVENIENT WHEN COMBINED WITH ANDROID PAY SO WHEN YOU’RE IN A
STORE, SIMPLY TOUCH THE BACK OF YOUR PHONE TO UNLOCK, TAP THE
PAYMENT TERMINAL TO COMPLETE YOUR PURCHASE. IT’S THAT EASY.
ON THE PHONE ITSELF, YOU CAN USE
YOUR FINGERPRINT TO SIMPLY AND QUICKLY AUTHORIZE PLAY STORE
PURCHASES, AND WE’VE BEEN WORKING WITH PARTNERS TO
INTEGRATE FINGERPRINT SUPPORT ACROSS A WIDE RANGE OF BANKING
AND COMMERCE APPS. OKAY. SO LET’S SWITCH GEARS
FOR A MOMENT AND TALK ABOUT SOME OF
THE FEATURES OF MARSHMALLOW THAT
REALLY SHINE ON THE NEXUS 5X AND
6P. WITH ANDROID SIXTY MARSHMALLOW, WE’VE GONE BACK TO
THE BASICS TO FOCUS ON IMPROVING
THE CORE USER EXPERIENCE. AT GOOGLE I/O IN MAY, WE TALKED
ABOUT SOME OF THE AREAS WE POLISHED, LIKE TEXT SELECTION
IMPROVEMENTS, A NEW COPY AND PASTE FLOATING BAR, VOLUME
CONTROLS, AND MORE. NOW, THAT WE’RE DONE, I WANTED TO SHOW
YOU A FEW MORE EXAMPLES OF POLISHED
CRAFTSMANSHIP THAT CAN BE FOUND THROUGHOUT MARSHMALLOW. SO
LET’S START WITH THE LOCK SCREEN.
NOW, WE ALREADY HAVE QUICK ACCESS TO CAMERA FROM THE LOCK
SCREEN. IN MARSHMALLOW, WE’VE EXTENDED QUICK ACCESS TO GOOGLE
VOICE SEARCH AND ACTIONS, SO YOU
JUST SWIPE FROM THE LEFT CORNER AND YOU GET THIS BEAUTIFUL
MATERIAL REVEAL ANIMATION AND THEN YOU CAN YOU SIMPLY SAY
WHAT YOU WANT. FOR EXAMPLE, CALL
PICCINO RESTAURANT. YOU’LL ALSO
NOTICE THE LITTLE CHARGING INDICATION ON THE SCREEN,
THANKS TO USB TYPE-C AND IT’S ALSO
ESTIMATING HOW MUCH TIME THE PHONE WILL TAKE TO CHARGE.
SO LET’S UNLOCK THE PHONE. NOW,
ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS YOU’LL NOTICE IS THAT WE’VE REWORKED
THE WINDOW ANIMATIONS, SO THEY FOLLOW THE MATERIAL DESIGN
PRINCIPLE WHERE ELEMENTS APPEAR FROM THEIR POINT OF TOUCH OR
INTERACTION. WHEN YOU TOUCH A LAUNCHER ICON,
IT EXPANDS OUTWARDS AND THEN IT DISMISSES VERTICALLY DOWNWARDS
WHEN YOU’RE DONE WITH IT. SO IT
FEELS INTUITIVE AND NATURAL. WE’VE ALSO TAKEN GREAT CARE TO
SIMPLIFY HOW HEADS-UP NOTIFICATIONS WORK. IF YOU
RECEIVE A HEADS-UP NOTIFICATION,
SAY AN INCOMING TEXT MESSAGE, THE NOTIFICATION NOW PEEKS DOWN
WITH A LITTLE BOUNCING ANIMATION
TO GET YOUR ATTENTION WITHOUT DISRUPTING YOUR CURRENT TASK.
YOU CAN USUALLY PUSH THE NOTIFICATION BACK UP TO ITS
HIDING PLACE OR YOU CAN SWIPE DOWN TO REVEAL THE REST OF THE
NOTIFICATION SHADE. NOW THE PHYSICS OF
NOTIFICATIONS ARE TRULY CONSISTENT
EVERYWHERE. ANOTHER AREA WE POLICY I SHOULD
AND REFINED IS THE HOME SCREEN. SCROLL TO FIND AN APP WITH THE
NEW A-TO-Z INDEXING SCHEME, OR, INDEED, JUST SIMPLY TYPE THE
FIRST LETTER OR TWO TO FIND THE APP.
WE’VE ALSO ADDED ON-DEVICE INTELLIGENT PREDICTION ENGINE
TO LEARN YOUR PATTERN OF APP
LAUNCHES OVER TIME AND PROVIDE DYNAMIC SHORTCUTS AT THE TOP OF
THE LAUNCHER FOR QUICK ACCESS. THE PHONE LEARNS YOUR PATTERNS,
SO IT WILL BE ABLE TO SHOW YOU APPS YOU TEND TO LAUNCH AT A
CERTAIN TIME OF DAY. SAY IN THE
MORNING VERSUS THE EVENING. OR,
IN FACT, APPS YOU TEND TO LAUNCH
IN A SPECIFIC SEQUENCE. AND OF COURSE WITH MARSHMALLOW,
WE’VE RADICALLY CHANGED THE USER
PERMISSION MODEL BY GREATLY SIMPLIFYING THE NUMBER OF
PERMISSIONS APPS CAN ASK FOR AND
ONLY ASKING FOR PERMISSION THE FIRST TIME YOU TRY TO USE A
FEATURE. INSTEAD OF ASKING DURING INSTALLATION TIME.
SO FOR EXAMPLE, LET’S SAY I LAUNCH TWITTER AND I WANT TO
TWEET WITH AN ATTACHED LOCATION.
WHEN I PRESS THE LOCATION BUTTON, THE SYSTEM PRESENTS A
RUNTIME PERMISSION FOR LOCATION LIKE SO.
NOW, WE’VE HEARD LOUD AND CLEAR FROM ANDROID USERS THAT THEY
FEEL SOME PHONES COME INSTALLED WITH TOO MUCH BLOATWARE. WITH
THE NEW NEXUS DEVICES, WE’VE REDUCED THE NUMBER OF PRELOADED
APPS ON THE PHONE TO MAKE THE OUT-OF-BOX EXPERIENCE CLEANER
AND SIMPLER. WE’VE ALSO DEVELOPED A NEW
SYSTEM THAT MOVES OVER A QUARTER
OF OUR APPS TO A POST-SETUP INSTALLATION PHASE, WHICH MEANS
THEY CAN BE UN-INSTALLED JUST LIKE ANY OTHER APPS.
OKAY. SO AT GOOGLE I/O IN MAY, WE DEMO’d A NEW FEATURE WE’VE
BEEN WORKING ON CALLED NOW ON TAP. THIS FEATURE IS LAUNCHING
WITH THE NEXUS 5X AND 6P, MAKING
OUR NEW PHONES NOT JUST FASTER BUT ALSO SMARTER.
NOW ON TAP BRINGS THE POWER OF GOOGLE SEARCH TO WHATEVER
YOU’RE DOING ON THE PHONE. YOU SIMPLY
TAP AND HOLD THE HOME BUTTON TO GET QUICK INFORMATION AND
ACTIONS WITHOUT LEAVING THE APP YOU’RE CURRENTLY IN. SO GOOGLE
DRAWS ON ALL OF THE RESOURCES OF
YOUR PHONE TO BRING YOU THE RIGHT INFORMATION AND APPS FOR
WHAT YOU NEED IN THE MOMENT. SO LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THIS IN
ACTION. MAYA IS HERE ON STAGE TO HELP ME WITH A COUPLE OF
DEMOS. MAYA, BY THE WAY, IS THE
PRODUCT MANAGER BEHIND THE AWESOME NEXUS IMPRINT FEATURE I
SHOWED EARLIER. OKAY. SO LET’S
SAY MAYA IS USING WHATSAPP, FROM
A FRIEND THAT’S MEETING AT THE CASCAL’S RESTAURANT AT 7:00
P.M. FROM HERE SHE CAN SIMPLY
LONG-PRESS THE HOME BUTTON TO TRIGGER NOW ON TAP TO GET
INFORMATION AND QUICK ACCESS. HERE YOU CAN QUICKLY SEE THE
RESTAURANT’S RATING AND HOW FAR AWAY IT IS. NOW ON TAP IS
PROVIDING ASSISTANCE ON DIRECTIONS, THERE’S A PHONE
ICON TO DIRECTLY CALL THE RESTAURANT AND EVEN A YELP ICON TO GET
REVIEWS. NOW ON TAP IS ALSO PROVIDING A CONVENIENT OPTION
TO DIRECTLY CREATE A CALENDAR
REMINDER EVENT. AND YOU CAN SEE IF MAYA THEN
TAPS ON THE OPENTABLE ICON, SHE CAN DIRECTLY BOOK A TABLE FOR
THE RESTAURANT HER FRIEND HAD MENTIONED. IT’S SUPER
CONVENIENT. NOW ON TAP IS A REALLY
INNOVATIVE ENHANCEMENT TO GOOGLE
NOW’S ASSISTANT CAPABILITIES AND
LIKE MANY OF GOOGLE’S SERVICES, IT’S BASED ON A LEARNING SYSTEM
WHICH GETS BETTER WITH USAGE OVER TIME AND WE’RE EXCITED TO
BE ABLE TO GET THIS OUT TO USERS
NOW AND CONTINUE TO ITERATE AND IMPROVE IT WITH REGULAR UPDATES
VIA THE PLAY STORE. ANOTHER COOL FEATURE IN ANDROID
IS VOICE ACTIONS, WHICH LETS YOU
USE JUST YOUR VOICE TO PERFORM ACTIONS SUCH AS SENDING A TEXT
MESSAGE OR SETTING AN ALARM. IN ANDROID 6.0, WE’VE EXTENDED
THIS FEATURE TO ENABLE APP DEVELOPERS TO BUILD
CONVERSATIONAL VOICE EXPERIENCES
DIRECTLY INTO THEIR OWN APP. SO
LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT AN EXAMPLE.
MAYA HAS AN UPDATED VERSION OF THE NPR APP ON HER PHONE THAT
SUPPORTS THE NEW VOICE INTERACTION CAPABILITIES IN
MARSHMALLOW. SHE’S ABLE TO TRIGGER THE APP AND THEN
INTERACT WITH THE APP ALL BY HER
VOICE. SO LET’S TAKE A LOOK.>>Maya Ben Ari: OKAY, GOOGLE.
LISTEN TO NPR.>>Google: HERE’S THE LATEST
NEWS. WOULD YOU LIKE TO RESUME THE CALIFORNIA REPORT OR CATCH
UP ON THE LATEST NEWS?>>Maya Ben Ari: LATEST NEWS.
>>Google: OKAY. CATCHING YOU UP
ON THE LATEST NEWS. THIS IS YOU’RE LISTENING TO KQED PUBLIC
RADIO.>>Dave Burke: SO WHAT WAS COOL
HERE WAS THE NPR APP WAS ABLE TO
ASK A CLARIFYING QUESTION TO MAYA TO COMPLETE THE VOICE
ACTION. SO IT’S POWERFUL AND SEAMLESS.
BUT WITH THE NEXUS 5X AND 6P SUPPORT ALWAYS-ON OKAY GOOGLE
DETECTION THAT WORKS EVEN WHEN THE SCREEN IS OFF THANKS TO A
HARDWARE SDK SP, TO ANY APP COULD INTERACT THE TO SUPPORT
THIS KIND OF HANDS-FREE USE. OKAY. SO LET’S MOVE ON AND
TALK ABOUT BATTERY. OUR ENGINEERS
HAVE BEEN WORKING HARD ON OPTIMIZING BATTERY LIFE ON
ANDROID FOR SEVERAL YEARS. WITH
MARSHMALLOW, WE THINK WE’VE MADE
OUR BIGGEST BREAKTHROUGH TO DATE. WE MADE ANDROID SMARTER
ABOUT HOW IT MANAGES POWER WITH THE NEW DOZE MODE.
WE’RE USING SIGNIFICANT MOTION DETECTION TO LEARN IF A DEVICE
HAS BEEN LEFT UNATTENDED FOR A PERIOD OF TIME. IN THAT CASE,
WE’LL EXPONENTIALLY BACK OFF BACKGROUND ACTIVITY TO GO INTO
A DEEPER SLEEP STATE YET STILL BE
ABLE TO RESPOND TO REALTIME MESSAGES.
WE’VE ALSO OPTIMIZED THE SYSTEM TO PRIORITIZE THE APPS USED
MORE FREQUENTLY OVER THOSE THAT YOU
DON’T. THE RESULTS IN MARSHMALLOW ARE
PRETTY DRAMATIC, AND YOU’LL ESPECIALLY NOTICE THE
IMPROVEMENTS IF YOU LEAVE YOUR DEVICE DOWN AND FORGET TO
CHARGE IT OVERNIGHT, FOR EXAMPLE.
IN FACT, WHEN THE SCREEN IS OFF,
THE AVERAGE BATTERY LIFE LASTS 30% LONGER IN MARSHMALLOW ON
THE FIRST GENERATION NEXUS 5 AND
NEXUS 6 DEVICES. AND THESE ARE EXTRAORDINARY NUMBERS TO
IMPROVE BATTERY LIFE BY PURELY VIA
SOFTWARE CHANGES. AND OF COURSE
THE NEW NEXUS 5X AND 6P BENEFIT FROM THESE POWER IMPROVEMENTS
IN MARSHMALLOW.
OKAY. SO FINALLY, I’M HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE THAT ANDROID 6.0
MARSHMALLOW WILL BEGIN ROLLING OUT TO EXISTING NEXUS DEVICES
STARTING NEXT WEEK, INCLUDING THE NEXUS 5, 6, 7, 9, AND NEXUS
PLAYER. NOW, HERE’S SABRINA TO TELL YOU
MORE ABOUT WHERE YOU CAN BUY THE
NEW NEXUS 5X AND 6P. THANK YOU.>>Sabrina Ellis: THANKS, DAVEY. THE TEAM IS REALLY EXCITED TO
LAUNCH THESE TWO NEW NEXUS PHONES, SO I WANT TO TAKE A
MOMENT TO TELL YOU WHERE YOU CAN
ACTUALLY BUY THEM. AND THAT’S AT THE GOOGLE STORE.
BACK IN MARCH, WE LAUNCHED THE GOOSE STORE AS THE GOOGLE STORE
AS THE LATEST HOME FOR THE DEVICES THAT WORK WITH GOOGLE.
INCLUDING NEXUS PHONES AND TABLETS, CHROMECAST,
CHROMEBOOKS, ANDROID WEAR WATCHES, AND NEST PRODUCTS, NOT
TO MENTION THE ACCESSORIES THAT GO WITH THEM.
NOW THE GOOGLE STORE IS AVAILABLE IN OVER TWO DOZEN
COUNTRIES AND 50 DIFFERENT LANGUAGES AND WE CONTINUE TO
WORK TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR YOU TO FIND AND BUY THE HARDWARE
YOU’RE LOOKING FOR. WE’RE GUESSING THE HARDWARE
YOU’RE LOOKING FOR TODAY MIGHT INCLUDE OUR NEW PHONES SO LET’S
TALK DETAILS. STARTING TODAY, THE NEXUS 5X
AND THE NEXUS 6P WILL BE AVAILABLE
FOR PREORDER ON THE GOOGLE STORE
IN THE U.S., U.K., IRELAND, AND JAPAN. WITH MORE COUNTRIES
COMING IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS. OUTSIDE THE U.S., IN ADDITION
TO THE GOOGLE STORE, WE’RE ALSO
PARTNERING WITH LEADING RETAILERS AND CARRIERS TO SELL
BOTH DEVICES. IN TERMS OF PRICING, THE NEXUS 5X STARTS AT
$379, AND THE NEXUS 6P STARTS AT
$499. BOTH PHONES WILL BEGIN SHIPPING
LATER IN OCTOBER. BOTH WILL BE UNLOCKED WITHOUT
TYING YOU TO A CONTRACT. BOTH WILL WORK ACROSS MAJOR
NETWORKS IN THE U.S. AS WELL AS INTERNATIONALLY.
AND BOTH COME WITH A GREAT NEW SET OF OFFERS AND SERVICES THAT
I WANT TO TELL YOU MORE ABOUT NOW.
FIRST, ALL NEXUS PHONES WILL COME WITH A 90-DAY FREE
SUBSCRIPTION TO GOOGLE PLAY MUSIC, SO YOU’LL HAVE ACCESS TO
OVER 35 MILLION SONGS ANYTIME YOU WANT.
SECOND, ALL NEXUS PREORDERS IN THE U.S. ALSO INCLUDE A $50
PLAY CREDIT, SO YOU CAN STOCK UP ON
YOUR FAVORITE APPS, GAMES, AND MOVIES.
AND THIRD, YOU’LL NOW HAVE THE OPTION TO SAFEGUARD YOUR PHONE
WITH A NEW PROGRAM WE’RE LAUNCHING CALLED NEXUS PROTECT.
NEXUS PHONES ALREADY INCLUDE A ONE-YEAR MANUFACTURER’S
WARRANTY IN THE U.S., BUT WITH NEXUS
PROTECT, WE’RE PROVIDING AN ADDITIONAL USER SO YOU HAVE TWO
YEARS OF COVERAGE FOR MECHANICAL
BREAKDOWN. YOU’LL ALSO HAVE TWO
YEARS OF PROTECTION FROM ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE, WHICH COVERS
THOSE DROPS, SPILLS, AND CRACKS WE ALL WORRY ABOUT.
OF COURSE ONE OF THE WORST THINGS ABOUT A BROKEN PHONE IS,
WELL, NOT HAVING A PHONE, SO IF SOMETHING DOES HAPPEN YOU CAN
FILE A CLAIM 24/7 AND GET A NEW DEVICE AS EARLY AS THE NEXT
BUSINESS DAY. NEXUS PROTECT COSTS $69 FOR THE
5X AND $89 FOR THE 6P. IT’S LAUNCHING IN THE U.S. TODAY,
WITH MORE COUNTRIES COMING SOON.
FINALLY, FOR ALL YOU PROJECT FI FANS OUT THERE, WE’RE PLEASED
TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE NEXUS 5X AND
6P ARE AVAILABLE ON THE FI NETWORK.
WE LAUNCHED PROJECT FI A FEW MONTHS AGO TO OFFER A FAST,
EASY WIRELESS EXPERIENCE AND TO
DRIVE INNOVATION WITH LEADING
PARTNERS LIKE SPRINT AND T-MOBILE. WITH
TODAY’S ANNOUNCEMENT, FI USERS WILL HAVE A LARGER SET OF
PHONES TO CHOOSE FROM AND STILL ENJOY
ALL THE SERVICES THAT THEY LOVE HIGH-QUALITY CONNECTION THAT
INTELLIGENTLY SELECTS BETWEEN MULTIPLE CELL CARRIERS AND
WiFi AND A SIMPLE DATA PLAN THAT PROVIDES MONEY BACK FOR
UNUSED DATA. IT’S STILL EARLY DAYS FOR PROJECT FI, BUT WE’RE
EXCITED TO ADD THESE TWO NEXUS PHONES TO THE PROGRAM.
VISIT THE PROJECT FI SITE TO LEARN MORE AND TO REQUEST AN
INVITE. AND THAT’S THE NEXUS UPDATE.
TWO NEW GREAT PHONES AND A SPECIAL SET OF OFFERS AND
SERVICES. IN ADDITION TO PHONES, THE
GOOGLE STORE ALSO INCLUDES A WIDE SELECTION OF ANDROID WEAR
WATCHES, FROM ROUND TO SQUARE, FROM TRADITIONAL TO SPORTY.
ONE OF THE BEST THINGS OF WORKING
WITH DEVICE PARTNERS IS THAT WE’RE ABLE TO OFFER CUSTOMERS A
LOT OF CHOICES. JUST A FEW WEEKS AGO, WE
INTRODUCED A BEAUTIFUL SET OF NEW WATCHES FROM HUAWEI,
MOTOROLA, AND ASUS, THAT YOU CAN
SEE HERE. EACH WATCH HAS AN ALWAYS-ON DISPLAY, SO UNLIKE
SOME OTHER SMART WATCHES, YOU CAN TELL THE TIME ALL THE TIME. AND THEY ALL HAVE BATTERIES
THAT WILL LAST YOU ALL DAY.
ALL NEW WATCHES WORK WITH BOTH ANDROID PHONES AS WELL AS
IPHONES SO EVEN IF YOU DECIDE TO BUY YOUR PHONE FROM SOMEONE
ELSE, YOU CAN STILL HAVE YOUR CHOICE OF WATCHES.
YOU CAN FIND THEM ALL TODAY ON THE GOOGLE STORE.
THAT’S OUR FAMILY OF WATCHES AND
A NEW FAMILY OF NEXUS PHONES. OF COURSE ONE OF OUR HOPES FOR
ALL THIS TECHNOLOGY IS THAT IT CAN HELP CONNECT REAL FAMILIES,
TOO. TO TELL YOU MORE ABOUT HOW
WE’RE THINKING ABOUT THE NEEDS OF
FAMILIES IN THE ENTERTAINMENT SPACE, HERE’S EUNICE FROM THE
GOOGLE PLAY TEAM.>>Eunice Kim: THANKS, SABRINA.
FAMILIES HAVE BEEN A BIG PRIORITY FOR GOOGLE PLAY THIS
YEAR. WE’VE ROLLED OUT SOME THINGS THAT MAKE IT AN EVEN
BETTER PLACE FOR FAMILIES TO PLAY TOGETHER. THINGS LIKE
MORE PROMINENTLY DISPLAYED CONTENT
READINGS FOR APPS AND GAMES, IMPROVED TOOLS THAT HELP MAKE
IT EASIER FOR PARENTS TO DECIDE
WHAT’S RIGHT FOR THEIR FAMILIES AND AN ALL-NEW-WAY TO FIND
FAMILY-FRIENDLY CONTENT ACROSS MOVIES AND TV, APPS, AND BOOKS.
AND TODAY, I’M EXCITED TO SHARE HOW WE’RE MAKING OUR MUSIC
EXPERIENCE BETTER FOR FAMILIES, TOO.
I WAS PART OF THE GOOGLE PLAY MUSIC TEAM WHEN WE FIRST
LAUNCHED IN 2011, AND WE’VE ADDED SOME GREAT FEATURES BASED
ON FEEDBACK FROM OUR USERS, AND I WANT TO SHARE SOME OF THE
WORK WE’VE BEEN DOING ON ONE OF OUR
MOST REQUESTED FEATURES, ONE THAT I PERSONALLY WANTED FOR A
WHILE, TOO. LET ME TELL YOU A BIT MORE
ABOUT MY FAMILY, TO EXPLAIN WHY.
WHEN I WAS IN COLLEGE IN NEW YORK, I FELL IN LOVE WITH EAST
COAST HIP-HOP, WU-TANG WU-TANG CLAN, BIGGIE, AND P. DIDDY.
AND I STILL COME BACK TO THAT MUSIC ON GOOGLE PLAY, WHEN I’M JUST
KICKING BACK WITH BIGGIE RADIO OR BUILDING OUT PLAYLISTS WITH
ALL OF MY OLD FAVORITES. BUT MY
HUSBAND, WELL, HE’S A FEW YEARS OLDER THAN I AM SO HIS TASTES
ARE A BIT DIFFERENT. HE WAS EMO
BEFORE THERE WAS EVEN A NAME FOR
THAT, AND HE STILL OCCASIONALLY RETURNS TO 80s FAVORITES LIKE
THE SMITHS, DEPECHE MODE, AND THE CURE.SO WE’RE BOTH BIG MUSIC
FANS WHICH IS WHY WE HAVE TWO GOOGLE
PLAY MUSIC ACCOUNTS. WE OFTEN LISTEN AT THE SAME TIME ON EACH
OF OUR DEVICES WHETHER I’M AT THE OFFICE OR HE IS OUT TO THE
RUN. WE LIKE THE MUSIC TAILORED TO THE STUFF WE LIKE.
FOR FAMILIES LIKE OURS AND MANY MORSE I’M EXCITING TO ANOW IS
THE GOOGLE PLAY MUSIC PLAN. FAMILIES WILL BE ABLE TO
SUBSCRIBE TOGETHER. FOR $14.99 PER MONTH. THEY WOULD UNLOCK
THE SAIL VALUE THEY WOULD GET FOR INDIVIDUAL SUBSCRIPTIONS
FOR JUST ONE LOSE LOW PRICE. WHAT
WILL THIS LOOK LIKE? LIKE A LOT OF FAMILIES WE HAVE A BUNCH
OF DEVICES. ALL OF US HAVE PHONES. WE HAVE GOT A TABLET,
LAPTOPS FOR WORK AND FOR SCHOOL, A TV WITH AND SO ON.
WITH THE FAMILY PLAN WE CAN LISTEN ACROSS ALL OF THEY WILL
AND WE WON’T INTERRUPT EACH OTHER’S EXPERIENCE. AND WE
WILL KEEP GETTING MUSIC THAT’S PERSONALIZED TO EACH OF US.
WHILE I’M GETTING READY TO WORKOUT WITH ENTERING BEAST
MODE, MY MUSIC CAN DISCOVER MUSIC THAT ALLOWS HIM TO WALLOW
IN SELF-PITY AND WITH THE FAMILY PLAN WE CAN GIVE OUR
DAUGHTER HER OBSERVE ACCOUNT SO WE CAN ENJOY DEMI LOVATO AND
KELLY CLARKSON TO HER CONTENT. THIS IS WILL BE AWESOME FOR OUR
FAMILY. LOOK FOR THE FAMILY PLAN LATER THIS YEAR. MUSIC IS
ONE OF THE THINGS WHERE WE ARE DOING MORE FOR FAMILIES. I
WILL HAND IT OVER TO ANIL WHO WILL TALK ABOUT SOL OF THE
ABOUT SOME OF THE NEW FEATURE WE HAVE BEEN BUILDING
FOR GOOGLE PHOTOS. >>Anil Sabharwal: PHOTOS PLAY
A POWERFUL ROLE IN BRINGING FAMILIES TOGETHER. THERE IS
NOTHING QUITE LIKE THAT FEELING OF REMINISCING OR CREATING
MEMORIES. WE LAUNCHED GOOGLE PHOTOS AND WE HAVE SEEN
TREMENDOUS ADOPTION. IN FACT, IN THE SHORT TIME SINCE LAUNCH PEOPLE HAVE UPLOADED OVER
50 BILLION PHOTOS AND VIDEOS. GOOGLE PHOTOS WAS BUILT FROM
THE GROUND UP CENTERED ON THREE BEG IDEAS, A HOME FOR ALL YOUR
PHOTOS AND VIDEOS, ORGANIZED AND BROUGHT TO LIFE SO YOU CAN
SHARE AND SAVE WHAT MATTERS. TODAY I’LL EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE
THREE NEW FEATURES WE HAVE BEEN WORKING ON TO MAKE IT EASY FOR
YOU TO SHARE, RELIVE, AND HOLD ON TO THE MOMENTS THAT MATTER.
FIRST I WOULD LIKE TO TALK TO A FEATURE KNEE AND NEAR AND DEAR
TO MY HEART. MY WIFE AND I HAVE AN
ALBUM OF LIBRARIES OFTEN OF THE SAME
EVENT ON TWO DIFFERENT DEVICES WITH NO EASY WAY TO PULL THEM
TOGETHER. OUR PARENTS KEEP ASKING US FOR PHOTOS OF THE
KIDS. EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE THE BEST INTENTIONS WE DON’T GET
AROUND TO SHEARING. HOW EASILY POOL PHOTOS AND VIDEOS INTO A
SINGLE SHARED ALBUM THAT EVERYONE CAN HOLD ON TO. HOW
DO PEEL GET NOTIFIED WHEN NEW PHOTOS AND VIDEOS GET ADDED?
MOST IMPORTANTLY HOW DO YOU DO THOSE TWO THINGS IN A WAY THAT
REQUIRES NO SETUP AND WORKS ACROSS ANY DEVICE, NO MATTER
WHAT YOU HAVE, ANDROID, iOS, MAC, WINDOWS, CHROME OS, YOU
NAIL NAME IT. HERE, LET ME SHOW
YOU. HERE WE HAVE MY PHONE. I HAVE
A BUNCH OF PHOTOS AND VIDEOS FROM A RECENT FAMILY TRIP WHERE
WE WENT APPLE PICKING. LET’S SAY I WANT TO SHARE THESE WITH
MY WIFE JESS. WITH GOOGLE PHOTOS IT IS EASY. I TAP THE
SHARE BUTTON. I PICK ANY APP, IN THIS CASE WE WILL PICK
HANGOUTS, I WILL GO AHEAD AND SEND HER THE LINK. NOW, THIS
PART ISN’T NEW. THIS NO STRINGS ATTACHED SHARING HAS
ALWAYS BEEN PART OF GOOGLE PHOTOS. NOW, ON THIS SIDE, WE
HAVE JESS’ iPHONE. SHE IS GOING TO GET MY MESSAGE, TAP
THE LINK AND HERE’S WHAT SHE SEES. JESS CAN NOW TAP THE
PLUS BUTTON IN THE UPPER RIGHT-HAND CORNER AND EASILY
ADD HER PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO THE SAME ALBUM. THESE ARE THE
ONES SHE TOOK THAT DAY ON HER DEVICE. NOTICE, I’LL ACTUALLY
IN THESE PHOTOS. YOU CAN SEE ME THERE IN THE BLUE SHIRT. IF
WE GO BACK TO MY PHONE, YOU’LL SEE THAT I HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED
THAT JESS HAS ADDED PHOTOS TO THE ALBUM. AND IF I TAP ON
THAT NOTIFICATION, I’LL TAKEN RIGHT BACK TO THE ALBUM AND I
CAN SEE EXACTLY WHICH ONES SHE ADDED BY THE NAME ATTRIBUTION
THAT’S ON THE BOTTOM OF EVERY PHOTO.
JESS AND I NOW HAVE A SINGLE PLACE THAT HAS ALL THE PHOTOS
FROM THE DAY. AND WE WILL BOTH BE NOTIFIED ANY TIME EITHER OF
US ADDS PHOTOS OR VIDEOS. THIS IS A GOOGLE PART OF THE GOOGLE
PHOTOS MISSION. WE WANT TO MAKE IT EASY FOR YOU TO HOLD
ONTO THE MEMORIES THAT MATTER EVEN WHEN YOU ARE THE ONE
HOLDING ONTO THE CAMERA. I KNOW MY MOM WOULD LOVE TO SEE
THE PHOTOS OF THE GRANDKIDS, TOO. LET ME SEND HER THE LINK. I WILL GO TO THE INBOX, PASTE
THE LINK, AND THEN WE’LL GO AHEAD AND TAP SEND. IF WE GO
ON TO THIS SIDE NOW, YOU ARE LOOKING AT MY MOM’S TABLET.
SHE IS GOING TO GO AHEAD AND OPEN UP MY EMAIL, TAP ON THE
LINK. THIS, AGAIN, WILL BRING UP ALL THE PHOTOS AND VIDEOS
THAT JESS AND I HAVE SHARED IN THIS ALBUM. NOW, MY MOM WASN’T
WITH US AT THE APPLE ORCHARD. SO SHE DOESN’T HAVE ANY PHOTOS
TO ADD, BUT SHE WANTS TO BE NOTIFIED JESS AND I ADD NOTES
TO THE ALBUM. SHE WILL TAP JOIN IN THE RIGHT HAND CORNER.
IT SUBSCRIBES HER AND GIVES HER NOTIFICATIONS ANY TIME PHOTOS
OR VIDEOS ARE ADDED. IF YOU WE GO BACK TO MY PHONE, YOU WILL
SEE I HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED THAT MOM HAS JOINED THE ALBUM, IN
THEORY. ALL RIGHT. WELL, NORMALLY I WOULD GET A
NOTIFICATION THAT TELLS ME THAT SHE’S SEEN IT AND THAT I —
THAT I KNOW THAT SHE HAS ACTUALLY VIEWED THE PHOTOS AND
SHE IS TELLING ME SHE WANTS ME TO SEND HER MORE. IT JUST SO
HAPPENS A FEW DAYS AFTER WE HAD A FAMILY BAKE-OFF AND I WILL
ADD THESE PHOTOS TO THE SAME ALBUM. LET’S SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
NOW, BACK ON MY MOM’S TABLET, WE SHOULD SEE A NOTIFICATION
THAT I’VE’S ADDED NEW PHOTOS. LOOKS LIKE WITH THE DEMO WE’RE
HAVING A LOT OF TROUBLE GETTING THE NOTIFICATION THROUGH. SHE
WILL GET THE NOTIFICATION — THERE IT IS — SHE WILL OPEN UP
THAT SHARED ALBUM AND SOMEHOW SHE CAN SEE ALL THE PHOTOS FROM
THE ALBUM INCLUDING THE ONES I JUST ADDED. THAT’S AN EARLY
PREVIEW OF GOOGLE PHOTOS SHARED ALBUMS, A NEW EASY WAY TO POOL
PHOTOS AND VIDEOS AND GET UPDATE DATES WITH NO SETUP ON
ANY DEVICE. SHARED ALBUMS WILL BE AVAILABLE
LATER THIS YEAR. NEXT LET’S TALK ABOUT THE
CHALLENGE OF FINDING AND SHARING THAT ONE PHOTO. WITH
GOOGLE PHOTOS WE DIDN’T JUST WANT TO BUILD ANY PHOTOS APP
BUT RATHER LEAN ON GOOGLE’S STRENGTHS IN ORGANIZING
INFORMATION BY HARNESSING THE POWER OF MACHINE LEARNING, WE
MADE IT POSSIBLE TO AUTOMATICALLY ORGANIZE YOUR
PHOTOS AND VIDEOS AROUND WHAT MATTERS TO YOU. FOR EXAMPLE,
YOU CAN QUICKLY FIND ALL THE PHOTOS OF A SINGLE PERSON IN
YOUR LIBRARY. BUT WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU HAVE 150 PHOTOS OF YOUR
MOM AND YOU JUST WANT TO FIND THAT ONE PHOTO OF HER FROM THAT
TRIP TO HAWAII IN 2008. OR IN MY CASE, I OFTEN WANT TO SEE
PHOTOS THAT HAVE BOTH MY DAUGHTERS IN THEY WILL, SO HOW
DO I SEARCH FOR PHOTOS OF AVA AND LILY TOGETHER? TO ENABLE
THESE POWERFUL SEARCHES, THIS WEEK WE’RE ROLLING OUT THE
ABILITY FOR YOU TO LABEL THE IMPORTANT PEEL IN PEOPLE IN
YOUR LIFE. YOU CAN GIVE THEM ANY NAME YOU
LIKE, JAMES WARD, MAGGIE, MOL, MOM,
THE CHOICE IS YOURS. YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT WHAT IS THAT
CRAZY COUSIN I HAVE THAT INSISTS WE CALL HILL DUTCH
THUNDER. YOU CAN DO THAT TOO. THESE PRIVATE LABELS ARE
PRIVATE TO YOU. YOU CAN PERFORM COMPOUND SEARCHES LIKE
THIS ONE. HERE I SEARCH FOR MAGGIE HIKING. RATHER THAN
SEEING ALL THE PHOTOS OF MAGGIE OR HIKING, NOW I GET A SMALLER
SET OF RESULTS THAT MATCH BOTH. DAD AT THE BASEBALL GAME, AUNT
MAY AND UNCLE LARRY SKIING. DUTCH THUNDER AT THE BEACH IN
CANCUN. IT IS THAT MUCH EASIER TO FIND AND SHARE THE EXACT
PHOTOS YOU ARE LOOKING FOR. THIS FEATURE WILL BE AVAILABLE
ON ANDROID THIS WEEK, AND IS COMING VERY SOON TO WEB AND
IOS. FINALLY, LET’S TALK ABOUT THOSE
TIMES WHEN YOU WANT TO SHARE PHOTOS AND VIDEOS WITH THE
PEOPLE CLOSEST TO YOU. AND BY CLOSEST TO YOU, I MEAN
LITERALLY CLOSEST TO YOU, AS IN THEY ARE IN THE SAME ROOM. SAY
YOU ARE AT HOME, HANGING OUT WITH THE FAMILY, TALKING ABOUT
THAT EPIC DAY YOU HAD AT THE SKATE PARK. YOU QUICKLY PULL
UP THE PHOTOS AND VIDEOS. BUT THEN WHAT? YOUR PHONE GETS
PASSED AROUND. EVERYONE HUDDLES AROUND YOUR SMALL
SCREEN. NO ONE CAN ACTUALLY SEE OR HEAR. MEANWHILE YOUR TV
IS SITTING 10 FEET AWAY TURNED OFF ALMOST AS IF IT IS MOCKING
YOU. NO MORE. WE ARE BRINGING CHROMECAST TO PHOTOS. LET’S
TAKE A LOOK. HERE AGAIN WE HAVE MY PHONE AND ON THE SIDE
WE HAVE A TV CONNECTED TO CAST. THAT A CAST DEVICE IS NEARBY.
WE WILL TAP THE BUTTON, SELECT THE DEVICE, AND YOU WILL SEE WE
ARE READY TO GO. WHEN I TAB INTO A PHOTO, IT
IMMEDIATELY SHOWS UP ON THE TV. AND VIDEOS AND THEY WILL
AUTOMATICALLY UPDATE ON THE BIG SCREEN. I CAN SEEN CAST AN
ANIMATED GIF. LET’S SAY I WANT TO FIND A DIFFERENT PHOTO TO
CAST. ON MY PHONE, I CAN LEAVE THE FULL-SCREEN VIEW, SCRUB
THROUGH MY LIBRARY, ZOOM OUT, I CAN LOOK AT MY ALBUMS. I CAN
EVEN DO A SEARCH. NOTICE THIS WHOLE TIME THE LAST PHOTO I
CASTED IS STILL UP ON THE BIG SCREEN FOR EVERYONE TO LOOK AT.
EVEN THOUGH I’M NAVIGATING MY LIBRARY. THIS LET’S ME CONTROL
WHICH PHOTOS AND VIDEOS I CAST. SHARING YOUR SCREEN WHILE YOU
ARE SEARCHING YOUR LIBRARY FOR THAT NEXT PHOTO. WHAT IF YOUR
PHOTOS AND VIDEOS HAVEN’T YET BEEN BACKED UP? NO PARALLEL.
IF PROBLEM. YOU WILL SEE A FEW PHOTOS I
TOOK THIS MORNING. IF YOU NOTICE THE CLOUD WITH THE SLASH
THROUGH THEM, THIS IS DESIGNATING THAT THESE PHOTOS
HAVEN’T YET BEEN BACKED UP TO MY GOOGLE
MY GOOGLE PHOTOS DEVICE. THEY ARE LOCAL TO MY DEVICE BUT I
CAN STILL CAST THEY WILL. CHROMECAST AND PHOTOS IS
ROLLING OUT THIS WEEK ON ANDROID AND VERY SOON TO iOS.
PHOTOS ARE JUST ONE OF THE WAYS THAT WE’RE’S MAKING IT EVEN
EASIER TO BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER AROUND THE BIGGEST SCREEN IN
THE HOUSE. TO TALK A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT HOW WE ARE IT
BEING TO EVOLVE THE LIVING ROOM EXPERIENCE, I WOULD LIKE TO
INVITE MARIO FROM THE CHROMECAST TEAM.
>>Mario Queiroz: THANK YOU, ANIL.
LET’S CONTINUE WITH TV AT HOME ENTERTAINth. WE INTRODUCED
CHROMECAST IN JULY 2013 BASED ON THE PREMISE THAT THE
SMARTPHONE, POWERFUL AND FALL, IS INCREASINGLY AT THE CENTER
OF HOW WE MANAGE OUR LIVES, INCLUDING ACCESSING TV SHOWS,
MOVIES, MUSIC GAMES AND MORE. CHROMECAST ALLOWS YOU TO BRING
APPS TO THE TV SIMPLY BY EXTENDING THE MOBILE APPS YOU
ALREADY HAVE ON YOUR PHONE TO THE BIG SCREEN. YOUR MOBILE
APPS HAVE THE LATEST FEATURES. YOU ARE ALREADY LOGGED IN.
THEY KNOW YOUR PREFERENCES, CONNECT THEM TO CHROMECAST AND
YOUR PHONE BECOMES YOUR BEST REMOTE. AND OUR VISION DOESN’T
STOP AT TVs. 50% OF AUDIO LISTENING TAKES PLACE IN THE
HOME. OUR TECHNOLOGY ALLOWS US TO GO BEYOND THE TV SCREEN TO
YOUR OTHER HOME ENTERTAINMENT DEVICES INCLUDING SPEAKERS.
AND WHAT ABOUT CONTENT? SINCE THE LAUNCH OF THE ORIGINAL
CHROMECAST, THOUSANDS OF ANDROID, iOS, AND WEB APPS
HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED WITH SUPPORT FOR CAST. THE PACE OF
APPS LAUNCHING ON CHROMECAST IS ACCELERATING. PICK FROM OVER
200,000 TV SHOWS AND MOVIES FROM PREMIUM PROVIDES LIKE HBO
AND COMEDY CENTRAL. STARTING TODAY SHOW TILE IS SHOWTIME IS
BRINGING ALL OF ITS CONTENT TO CHROMECAST.
AND CAST SUPPORT WILL BE ABLE FROM SLING TV IN THE NEXT FEW
WEEKS AND MANY OTHER VIDEO SERVICES WILL FOLLOW.
IN SPORTS, WE OFFER MANY OF THE TOP LEAGUES AND NETWORKS. I
ENJOY MLB AT BAT, CBS SPORTS AND LOTS AND LOTS OF OTHERS.
I’LL REALLY EXCITED ABOUT CAST SUPPORT COMING THIS FALL TO
APPS FROM THE NBA, NHL, BEIN
SPORTS. WE CAN STREEL MORE THAN 35 MILLION SONGS. IN
FAMILY APPS, THERE IS A TON OF GREAT ENTERTAINMENT FOR THE
KIDS AND GAMES ON THE BIG SCREEN FOR EVERYBODY IN THE
HOME. ONE EXCITING ASPECT OF THE CAST
MODEL IS HOW APPS ARE USING THE SMARTPHONE TO ENHANCE WHAT’S
STREELING ON THE TV. FOR EXAMPLE, WITH THE RECENTLY
ADDED — WITH A RECENTLY LAUNCHED NFL SUNDAY TICKET BY
DIRECTV, WHILE A GAME IS STREAMING ON THE TV THROUGH
CHROMECAST, WE CAN EASILY BROWSE RICH INFORMATION ON THE
DEVICE IN YOUR HAND WITHOUT DISRUPTIVE OVERLAYS ON THE TV.
YOU CAN ALSO VERY EASILY LOOK FOR ANOTHER GAYLE GAME TO FLIP
TO OR DISCOVER THERE IS A FANTASY
ZONE TO GO TO, A GREAT EXPERIENCE ACROSS SCREENS.
WITH THE CAST MODEL, APPS RUN ON YOUR PHONE AND GET EXTENDED
TO THE TV. BY TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE SUPERIOR COMPUTING POWER
OF THE SMARTPHONE, WE FREE OURSELVES TO OPTIMIZE THE
HARDWARE DESIGN OF CHROMECAST FOR STREAMING AND CONNECTIVITY. WE CAN DELIVER GREAT
CAPABILITIES AT A VERY INEXPENSIVE PRICE. COUPLE THAT
WITH PRACTICALLY UNLIMITED ENTERTAINth AND YOU HAVE
HAPPY USERS AND SALES MOMENTUM. ANNOUNCE THAT WE HAVE PASSED
20 MILLION TOTAL CHROMECAST SALES GLOBALLY. THAT’S IN A
FRACTION OF THE TIME OF ANY PRODUCT IN THE CATEGORY.
GOOGLE DESIGNS HARDWARE — DESIGNS CHROMECAST HARDWARE TO
DELIVER FAST AND POLISHED EXPERIENCES. TODAY WE ARE ALSO
VERY HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE TWO BEAUTIFUL, BRAND-NEW CHROMECAST
PRODUCTS. FIRST THE NEW CHROMECAST. WE’VE REDESIGNED
CHROMECAST TO BRING A NEW MODERN LOOK. YOU WILL NOTICE
THE INDUSTRIAL DESIGN THAT SETS IT APART. THE INTEGRATED HDMI
CABLE MAKES IT EASY FOR YOU TO TAKE IT WITH YOU ON THE GO. IN
ADDITION TO BLACK, WE ARE OFFERING CHROMECAST IN TWO FUN
COLORS, LEMONADE AND CORAL. I HAVE ONE OF THE NEW CHROMECASTS
RIGHT HERE.
HERE IT IS. THE SMALL SIZE OF THE NEW CHROMECAST ALLOWS FOR
IT TO HIDE BEHIND THE TV SO IT DOESN’T CLUTTER YOUR LIVING
ROOM. THE INTEGRATED HDMI CABLE MAKES IT REALLY EASY FOR
YOU TO PLUG IT INTO VIRTUALLY ANY TV, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE
CROWDED PORTS. JUST AS IMPORTANT, THE NEW
CHROMECAST HARDWARE DELIVERS SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED WiFi
PERFORMANCE. WE NOW SUPPORT 2.4 AND 5 GIGAHERTZ DUAL BAND
2.4 AND 5 GIGAHERTZ AS WELL AS 802.11AC TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF
THE LATEST HOME NETWORKING TECHNOLOGIES. WE DESIGNED AN
ENTIRELY NEW ADAPTIVE ANTENNA SYSTEM WHICH INCLUDES THREE
EFFICIENT ANTENNAS AND AN AGGRESSIVE THAT ENSURES THAT
THE WiFi CHIP IS ALWAYS USING THE BEST ANTENNA AND RADIO
FREQUENCY FOR THE CHANGING WiFi CONDITIONS IN THE HOME.
TAKE A LOOK AT THE DATA THAT COMPARES THE ORIGINAL
CHROMECAST IN LIGHT BLUE HERE WITH COMPETITIVE PRODUCTS OF
THE SAME FORM FACTOR. AS WiFi GOES FROM STRONG TO
WEAK — AS WiFi GOES FROM STRONG TO WEAK, THRU PUT DROPS
ACROSS ALL OF THE DEVICES. NOW LET’S ADD THE NEW DATA FOR THE
NEW CHROMECAST. WiFi PERFORMANCE OF THE NEW
CHROMECAST IS SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER ACROSS THE ENTIRE RANGE
OF CONDITIONS. THE NEW CHROMECAST CONSISTING
OF THE FLOW OF MORE DATA WHICH MEANS HIGHER QUALITY VIDEO AND
AUDIO, LESS BUFFERING AND A SUPERIOR EXPERIENCE.
THE SECOND BEAUTIFUL NEW CHROMECAST PRODUCT WE’RE
ANNOUNCING TODAY IS CHROMECAST AUDIO. THERE’S A HUGE
OPPORTUNITY TO BRING A GREAT AUDIO STREAMING EXPERIENCE TO
YOUR EXISTING SPEAKERS. FEWER THAN 5% OF U.S. HOUSEHOLDS HAVE
SPEAKERS THAT CAN CONNECT TO THE INTERNET. CHROMECAST AUDIO
IS A SMALL DEVICE THAT PLUGS INTO AN EXISTING HOME SPEAKER
AND STREAMS AUDIO THROUGH WiFi FROM YOUR FAVORITE
CAST-ENABLED APPS. WE BROUGHT THE PERSONALITY OF THE NEW
DESIGN WITH THE CIRCULAR SHAPE TO CHROMECAST AUDIO. I LOVE
THE CONCENTRIC GROOVES AS A SALUTE TO THE VINYL RECORD.
THE LEMONADE AUDIO CABLE ADDS A MODERN LOOK TO YOUR SPEAKER
ARRANGEMENT. INSIDE, YOU HAVE THE SAME ADAPTIVE ANTENNA
SYSTEM AS THE NEW CHROMECAST FOR OPTIMAL WiFi PERFORMANCE.
CONNECTED THE AUDIO CABLE TO THE 3.5 AUXILIARY INPUT OF YOUR
EXISTING SPEAKER, WE ALSO SUPPORT RCA AND OPTICAL INPUTS. JUST LIKE CHROMECAST, IT’S
REALLY SIMPLE TO SET UP. PLUG IT INTO POWER, CONNECT TO
WiFi, AND YOU ARE READY TO CAST.
WITH THE NEW CHROMECAST AND CHROMECAST AUDIO, YOU NOW HAVE
A SIMPLE AND CONSISTENT WAY TO AL AL
AMPLIFY YOUR ENTERTAINMENT IN YOUR HOLE. I WILL ASK RISHI
AND ADAM TO THE STAGE TO SHOW YOU HOW THESE DEVICES WORK.
>>Rishi Chandra: LET’S START WITH THE NEW CHROMECAST. WE
SHOWED YOU A LOT OF THE HARDWARE IMPROVEMENTS WE MADE.
NOW WE WILL TALK TO YOU ABOUT HAD MANY, MANY NEW APPS COOL.
THAT WORKS GREAT WHEN YOU KNOW WHICH APP TO GO TO, SIMPLY
START THE CAST BUTTON AND START WATCHING. WHAT ABOUT THE
MOMENTS WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT TO WATCH. TODAY WE ARE
EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE FOR ANDROID AND iOS A NEW APP. LET’S
SHOW IT TO YOU. ADAM WILL HOPE UP TO THE NEW
CHROMECAST APP AND WE WILL START WITH WHAT’S ON. WE
PARTNERED TO GIVE YOU A SINGLE PLACE TO GIVE YOU CONTENT.
THINK OF IT AS A CENTRAL HOME FOR ALL YOUR ENTERTAINMENT
OPTIONS. WHAT’S TRENDING ON YouTube TODAY? LATEST MOVIE
RENTALS FROM GOOGLE PLAY MOVIES OR WHAT’S LEAVE STREAMING ON
SPORTS. WE ONLY SHOW YOU CONTENT FROM APPS INSTALLED ON
YOUR PHONE, EVERYTHING HERE IS ACCESSIBLE TO YOU. WE WILL
CONTINUE TO ADD MORE PERSONALIZATION OPTIONS OVER
OVER TIME. WE ALSO HEARD FROM A LOT
OF OUR USERS THAT THEY DON’T KNOW WHICH OF THEIR MOBILE APPS
WORK WITH CHROMECAST. SO NOW WE GIVE A SIMPLE VIEW OF ALL
YOUR CAST-ENABLED APPS. LET’S GO WATCH SOMETHING. I
WAS PLAYING WITH THE APP AND CAME ACROSS A SHOW CALLED
“BLACK SAILS.” LET’S SELECT THAT WHILE WE BRING UP THE
CHROMECAST BEHIND ME. YOU CAN SEE IT’S EXECUTIVE PRODUCED BY
MICHAEL BAY SO IT HAS A LOT OF EXPLOSIONS IN NOW, IT’S GOING
TO IT. LINK US DIRECTLY INTO THE STARZ
APP RIGHT TO “BLACK SAILS.” WE TO SELECT WHICH CHROMECAST YOU
WANT TO SEND IT TO. SO LET’S GO
AHEAD AND SELECT PLAY AND AS YOU
EXPECT WITH CHROMECAST, WE’LL BE
STREAMING IN FULL HD FROM THE CLOUD.
>>>WHOLLY UNPREPARED FOR… I ALWAYS THOUGHT THIS JOURNEY
WOULD END IN BATTLE… BUT NOW AS IT TURNS OUT —
>>Rishi Chandra: LOOKS GREAT. SO NOW I CAN GO ADD THIS TO MY
STARZ PLAYLIST IF I WANT TO OR I
CAN GO BACK TO THE CHROMECAST APP AND ACTUALLY GO FIND
SOMETHING ELSE TO WATCH, ALL WITHOUT DISRUPTING WHAT’S
ACTUALLY PLAYING ON THE TV SCREEN. IT’S A MUCH BETTER
MODEL. SO THAT’S A QUICK RECAP OF
WHAT’S ON. SO NOW LET’S TALK ABOUT THE NEW
DEVICES TAB. WITH DEVICES, WE WANT TO MAKE IT EASY TO CONTROL
CHROMECAST FROM ANYWHERE, SO WE ADDED PLAYBACK CONTROLS,
STOP-PAUSE, SO NOW ANY DEVICE ON
YOUR HOME NETWORK CAN BE A REMOTE CONTROL FOR CHROMECAST.
IT WORKS GREAT WHEN YOU HAVE FRIENDS’ OVER. THEY CAN USE
THEIR OWN PHONES TO ACTUALLY PAUSE THE PLAYBACK. SO I’LL GO
TO GET APPS. WE HAVE THOUSANDS OF APPS THAT HAVE BEEN
CAST-ENABLED AND MANY MORE COMING ALL THE TIME. SO WE
NEED A BETTER APP DISCOVERY PROCESS,
SO WE REDESIGNED THE PAGE COMPLETELY AND HERE YOU’LL FIND
NEW RECOMMENDATIONS, NEW APPS, EVENLY NEW OFFERS. SO WE
ENCOURAGE YOU TO CHECK IT OUT. SO NOW LET’S TALK ABOUT SEARCH.
WITH SEARCH, WE WANT TO MAKE IT EASY FOR YOU TO FIND YOUR STUFF
ACROSS ALL THE DIFFERENT CAST-ENABLED APPS. SO FOR
EXAMPLE, I HAVE HEARD THE “X-FILES” IS COMING BACK TO
NETWORK TELEVISION SO I WANT TO CATCH UP ON THE OLD EPISODES
BUT I DIDN’T KNOW WHERE TO DO IT.
SO NOW I CAN TYPE IN “X-FILES” OR SINCE I’M USING MY PHONE I
CAN JUST USE VOICE SEARCH.
>>>”X-FILES.”>>Rishi Chandra: SO YOU’LL SEE
“X-FILES” RETURNS A SETS OF TV SHOWS AND MOVIES. LET’S GO
AHEAD AND PICK THE TV SHOW. AND
HERE IT WILL TELL YOU ALL THE PLACES YOU CAN WATCH IT ON
CHROMECAST. NOW, SINCE I HAVE NETFLIX AND
HULU ALREADY INSTALLED, I CAN START WATCHING IT RIGHT AWAY.
BUT IF I DON’T HAVE THAT, WE’LL HELP YOU GET IT. NOW, WE’RE
INDEXING MANY OF THE TOP PARTNERS, INCLUDING, CNS, FOX,
COMEDY CENTRAL, CRACKLE, AND MORE. AND WE’LL BE
CONTINUOUSLY ADDING MORE OVER TIME.
NOW, THE OTHER COOL THING IS I CAN GO BACK TO THE SEARCH
RESULTS PAGE AND ALSO SEE RELATED YouTube CONTENT, MOVIE
CLIPS, INTERVIEWS WITH THE CAST,
TRAILERS AND MORE SO IT’S A LOT OF FUN.
SO THAT’S A REALLY QUICK RECAP OF THE NEW CHROMECAST APP. WE
REALLY THINK IT’S GOING TO HELP YOU FIND GREAT STUFF TO WATCH
ON CHROMECAST. THIS WILL BE
ROLLING OUT OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS ON ANDROID, AND
OTHERWISE. OKAY, SO NOW WE’VE TALKED ABOUT
MAKING IT EASY TO FIND STUFF. HOW ABOUT MAKING IT EVEN FASTER
TO LOAD. ONE OF THE CHALLENGES OF STREAMING DEVICES TODAY IS
THAT WHEN YOU WANT TO WATCH SOMETHING, YOU HAVE TO WAIT
TENS OF SECONDS FOR THE APP TO LOAD
AND THE VIDEO TO BUFFER. WE NEED TO DO BETTER. IT NEEDS TO
BE FASTER THAN EVEN LIVE TV. SO WE’RE NOW ANNOUNCING A NEW
CAPABILITY CALLED FAST PLAY. THIS ALLOWS CONTENT DEVELOPERS
TO START PREFETCHING APPS AND CONTENT ON CHROMECAST THE
MOMENT YOU OPEN THE APP ON YOUR PHONE.
SO LET ME SHOW YOU HOW WELL THIS
WORKS WITH NETFLIX. SO WE HAVE TWO CHROMECASTS HERE, ONE WITH
FAST PLAY AND ONE WITHOUT, SO YOU CAN ACTUALLY DO A
COMPARISON. SO THE MOMENT YOU OPEN THE NETFLIX APP, NETFLIX
IS AUTOMATICALLY DETECTING 9
CHROMECAST IN THE NETWORK AND IT’S SILENTLY PRELOADING THE
APP. SO BY THE TIME YOU CLICK THE CAST BUTTON, IT’S ALREADY
THERE. IT’S MUCH FASTER. IN FACT, IN
OUR FIELD TESTS, WE ACTUALLY SEE
IT REDUCES APP LOAD TIME BY 80%.
BUT NETFLIX CAN GO EVEN FURTHER BY USING CONTENT CATCHING
ALGORITHMS TO PREDICT ANDROID WEAR WATCHES YOU WANT TO WAIT
BEFORE YOU EVEN HIT PLAY. SO LET’S DO A SEARCH FOR
“UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT.” AND WHAT YOU’LL FIND IS NETFLIX
ALREADY KNOWS I’VE WATCHED THE FIRST EPISODE SO THEY’RE
SMARTLY DOWNLOADING A SMALL SEGMENT OF
THE NEXT EPISODE. SO BY THE TIME I SCROLL DOWN AND HIT
PLAY, THE VIDEO IS ALREADY LOADED.
NO MORE BUFFERING.
IT TOTALLY CHANGES A STREAMING EXPERIENCE. NOW, WE’RE GOING
TO ROLL THIS OUT TO CONTENT
PARTNERS. MANY OF THE IMPROVEMENTS WILL BE ROLLING
OUT TODAY, WITH CONTENT PREDICTION
FEATURES ROLLING OUT EARLY NEXT YEAR. WE’RE REALLY EXCITED.
SO NOW LET’S TALK ABOUT GAMING. PART OF THE LIVING ROOM
EXPERIENCE, BUT ONE OF THE CHALLENGES IS THAT GAMERS ARE
ALWAYS LOOKING FOR THE LATEST AND GREATEST HARDWARE. SO WHAT
DOES THAT MEAN FOR A PRODUCT LIKE CHROMECAST, WHICH IS
DESIGNED TO BE SIMPLE AND LIGHTWEIGHT? WELL,
FORTUNATELY, WE CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE
MOST POWERFUL GAMING DEVICE IN MANY PEOPLE’S HOMES TODAY,
THEIR SMARTPHONE. SO AT GOOGLE I/O
WE LAUNCHED NEW DEVELOPER CALLED
THE REMOTE DISPLAY APIs. THIS ALLOWS A GAME DEVELOPER TO TAKE
THEIR EXISTING MOBILE GAME AND NOW RENDER IT ON TWO SCREENS.
ONE SCREEN PLAYS LOCALLY ON THE THEN
SENT TO CHROMECAST. SO EFFECTIVELY THE ENTIRE
EXPERIENCE IS BEING DRIVEN BY YOUR POWERFUL PHONE. SO LET ME
SHOW YOU A REAL EXAMPLE WITH ANGRY BIRDS GO, A POPULAR
RAISING GAME. SO ADAM HAS ALREADY CAST THE GAME TO
CHROMECAST AND YOU CAN SEE THE PHONE DOES AN AMAZING JOB OF
RENDERING THE GAME. ANGRY BIRDS GO IS JUST MUCH
BETTER ON THE BIG SCREEN. NOW, FOR THIS DEMO, ADAM’S USING AN
iPHONE. WE RELEASED THE REMOTE DISPLAY APIs FOR
ANDROID, AND OTHERWISE, SO EVERYONE CAN JOIN IN THE FUN.
AND THE OTHER REALLY COOL THING IS THAT ADAM’S USING THE
ACCELEROMETER OF THE PHONE TO CONTROL THE RACETRACK. GAME
DEVELOPERS CAN TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF THE CAPABILITIES
OF A PHONE, WHETHER IT BE
ACCELEROMETERRER, GYROSCOPE, TOUCH, EVEN THE CAMERA.
TURNS OUT THE GAME — THE PHONE IS JUST THE BEST GAME
CONTROLLER. AND IT WILL CONTINUOUSLY GET BETTER AS YOU
UPGRADE YOUR PHONE. NOW, OBSERVATIONS ALSO SUPPORTS
A MULTIPLAYER MODE AND IT’S REALLY SIMPLE TO SET UP,
BECAUSE AS LONG AS YOUR FRIEND HAS A
PHONE, THEY HAVE THEIR OWN GAME CONTROLLER WITH THEM.
NOW, THIS IS ONE OF SEVERAL GAMES WE’RE RELEASING OVER THE
NEXT FEW MONTHS. ANOTHER INTERESTING GAME IS WGT GOLF, A
PERSONAL FAVORITE OF MINE. IT LOOKS AMAZING ON THE BIG
SCREEN. ANOTHER ONE IS MONOPOLY HERE
AND NOW, WHERE YOU CAN PLAY FOUR
PLAYERS SIMULTANEOUSLY. IT’S A LOT OF FUN FOR THE FAMILY.
WE THINK REMOTE DISPLAY CAN UNLOCK THOUSANDS OF MOBILE
GAMES INTO THE LIVING ROOM.
WE’RE EXCITED TO SEE WHERE DEVELOPERS GO WITH IT.
SO THAT’S A QUICK RECAP OF THE NEW CHROMECAST. WE’RE ALSO
ANNOUNCING TODAY NEW FEEDS COMING TO BACKDROP, INCLUDING
SUPPORT FOR 500 PIXEL AND GETTY IMAGES. AND FOR YOUR PERSONAL
PHOTOS, IN ADDITION TO SUPPORTING GOOGLE PHOTOS, WE’RE
ALSO ANNOUNCING SUPPORT TODAY FOR FACEBOOK AND FLICKR.
THERE’S A LOT OF STUFF WE COULDN’T COVER TODAY SO WE HOPE
YOU’LL TRY IT OUT AND SEE ALL THE NEW IMPROVEMENTS FOR
YOURSELF. THE NEW CHROMECAST WILL BE AVAILABLE STARTING
TODAY IN 17 COUNTRIES AND WE’RE GOING
TO CONTINUE TO OFFER IT FOR THE AMAZING PRICE OF $35. AND FOR
THOSE OF YOU WHO WANT COLOR OPTIONS, THAT WILL ALSO BE
AVAILABLE STARTING TODAY FROM THE GOOGLE STORE.
SO THAT’S A QUICK RECAP OF THE NEW CHROMECAST.
SO NOW LET’S TALK ABOUT CHROMECAST AUDIO. SO MANY OF
US INVESTED A LOT OF MONEY IN OUR
AUDIO SYSTEMS BUT WE HAVE NO SIMPLE WAY TO CONNECT THEM TO
THE MUSIC WE LOVE WHICH LIVES ON
OUR PHONES. SO WITH CHROMECAST AUDIO, WE
CAN TAKE YOUR EXISTING SPEAKERS AND
MAKE THEM SMART. SO LET’S SAY I’M AT HOME AND I WANT TO
LISTEN TO MY HOME SPEAKER. SO LET’S
GO AHEAD AND BRING UP MY NEXUS
DEVICE. THE FIRST THING YOU’RE GOING TO NOTICE IS THAT
CHROMECAST AUDIO WORKS WITH ALL THE TOP AUDIO APPS THAT ALREADY
WORK WITH CHROMECAST TODAY, INCLUDING PANDORA,
iHeartRadio, TUNE I DIDN’T KNOW AND MORE. FOR NOW LET’S OPEN
UP GOOGLE MUSIC, WHICH SO YOU’LL
SEE I’M ALREADY LOGGED IN. NOW,
CHROMECAST AUDIO IS AUTOMATICALLY DETECTED BY PLAY
MUSIC, SO WE JUST SIMPLY PRESS THE CAST BUTTON AND YOU’LL SEE
A NEW DEVICE TYPE FOR SPEAKERS.
YOU’RE GOING TO SEE THIS IS VERY
FAMILIAR, RIGHT? WE MODELED IT EXACTLY AFTER CHROMECAST.
REGARDLESS OF WHETHER YOU’RE CASTING TO A TELEVISION OR TO A
SPEAKER, WE BELIEVE THE EXPERIENCE SHOULD BE SIMPLE AND
CONSISTENT. SO LET’S GO AHEAD AND SELECT THE DEVICE. YOU
HEAR THE NICE LITTLE AUDIO CONFIRM
NATION THAT YOU’RE NOW CONNECTED
AND THAT’S IT. WE DON’T HAVE A AND NOW I CAN JUST LISTEN TO MY
TUNES. [ MUSIC ] WE’RE STREAMING THE HIGHEST
QUALITY AUDIO THROUGH WIFI TO MY
OLD HOME SPEAKER. AND BECAUSE I’M STREAMING FROM THE CROWD,
WE CAN GET RID OF ALL THE HASSLES
OF BLUETOOTH. THE MUSIC WON’T DRAIN THE BATTERY ON MY PHONE.
I CAN PLAY ON ANY SPEAKER IN ANY
ROOM IN THE HOUSE WITHOUT LOSING
AUDIO. AND I WON’T HEAR THOSE ANNOYING RINGTONES EVERY TIME
SOMEONE GIVES ME A CALL. IT’S JUST A BETTER EXPERIENCE.
NOW, WITH CHROMECAST AUDIO, I CAN ALSO CONTROL IT FROM A
VARIETY OF DIFFERENT WAYS, WITH THE LOCK SCREEN NOTIFICATION,
OR I CAN EVEN GO TO MY ANDROID
WEAR WATCH AND SKIP TO THE NEXT SONG
IN THE PLAYLIST. [ MUSIC ]
OOPS, I SKIPPED ONE OVER. THERE
WE GO. [ MUSIC ]
IT’S REALLY COOL. NOW, OF COURSE OUR HOME SPEAKERS ARE
SHARED DEVICES. IT SHOULD BE EASY FOR ANYONE IN THE HOME TO
SHARE THEIR OWN MUSIC. SO CHROMECAST AUDIO AUTOMATICALLY
WORKS WITH PHONES, TABLETS, AND LAPTOPS THAT ARE CONNECTED TO
YOUR HOME HOMEWORK. AND WE ALSO
SUPPORT GUEST MODE, SO YOU CAN ENABLE FRIENDS WHO DON’T HAVE
YOUR WIFI PASSWORD TO CAST TO SPEAKERS IN THE SAME ROOM. SO
LET’S PRETEND MY WIFE WALKS INTO
THE ROOM AND SHE WANTS COME CAST
HER SPOTIFY PLAYLIST. WELL, TODAY WE’RE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE
SPOTIFY IS SUPPORTING CHROMECAST
AND CHROMECAST AUDIO. THIS WILL
BE ROLLING OUT TO ALL NEW DEVICES STARTING TODAY AND
OLDER GENERATIONS OF CHROMECAST OVER
THE NEXT FEW WEEKS. SO LET’S BRING UP MY WIFE’S
PHONE, WHICH HAPPENS TO BE AN iPHONE. OF COURSE WITH GOOGLE
CAST, WE’RE CROSS-PLATFORM, SO REGARDLESS OF WHETHER YOU’RE AN
ANDROID USER, iOS USER, OR WEB USER, YOU CAN CAST YOUR MUSIC
TO CHROMECAST AUDIO.
AND NOW, JUST LIKE WE SAW BEFORE, ALL MY WIFE NEEDS TO DO
IS PRESS THE CAST BUTTON, SELECT
THE DEVICE, AND OUR MUSIC WILL TRANSITION FROM THE PHONE TO
THE SPEAKERS.
[ MUSIC ] IT’S REALLY EASY. AND SHE CAN
DO THIS ALL FROM THE SPOTIFY APP. SHE SHOULDN’T HAVE TO
LEARN A NEW APP JUST BECAUSE SHE WANTS TO LISTEN TO MUSIC AT
HOME. IT’S THE SAME APP AT WORK, IN THE CAR, AND NOW AT
YOUR HOUSE. NOW THE OTHER COOL THING IS
SPOTIFY CAN SUPPORT MULTIPLE USERS AT THE SAME TIME. LET’S
SAY I WANT TO SKI TO THE NEXT SONG IN MY WIFE’S PLAYLIST. I
CAN USE MY OWN PHONE TO DO IT. LET’S BRING BACK MY NEXUS
DEVICE AND OPEN UP SPOTIFY. SPOTIFY IMMEDIATELY DETECTS
WHAT’S PLAYING ON THE HOME NETWORK AND NOW SYNCHRONIZES.
THIS MAY START A BATTLE FOR THE NEXT SONG TO PLAY NEXT BUT IT
IS REALLY EASY. THAT’S A QUICK RECAP OF THE NEW CHROMECAST
AUDIO. NOW, WE ARE GOING TO CONTINUE
TO BRING MORE AND MORE APPS TO CHROMECAST AUDIO, BUT UNTIL
THEN WE WANT TO MAKE IT EASY FOR YOU TO SEND ANY AUDIO TO
YOUR SPEAKER. SO JUST LIKE CHROMECAST, WE ARE GOING TO
SUPPORT THE ABILITY TO MIRROR AUDIO FROM YOUR ANDROID DEVICE
OR MIRROR AUDIO FROM ANY CHROME TAB ON WINDOWS, MAC AND
CHROMEBOOK. NOW YOU CAN SEND AUDIOBOOKS, PODCAST, LOCAL
MUSIC, EVEN YouTube VIDEOS RIGHT TO YOUR HOME SPEAKER.
WE ARE ALSO EXCITED TO SUPPORT IT THE SUPPORT MULTIPLE ROOM
SYNCHRONIZATION. THIS WILL BE ROLLING OUT LATER THIS YEAR
WITH AN OVER THE AIR UPDATE. CHROMECAST AUDIO WILL ALSO BE
AVAILABLE STARTING TODAY IN 17 COUNTRIES. WE ARE GOING TO
PRICE IT IN THE U.S. FOR JUST $35. THAT’S CHEAPER THAN A
BASIC SET OF HEADPHONES. SO NOW YOU CAN EITHER DUST OFF
THOSE OLD SPEAKERS OR CONNECT IT TO NEW ONES TO GET THE BEST
WiFi AUDIO EXPERIENCE. THAT’S OUR UPDATE TODAY, TWO AMAZINGLY
POWERFUL PRODUCTS STARTING TODAY FOR JUST $35. AND TWO
NEW NEXUS DEVICES THAT SHOWCASE THE BEST THAT ANDROID HAS TO
OFFER. OF COURSE, WE CONNECT THESE SCREENS WITH OUR
PLATFORMS AND APPS AND SAW SOME GREAT NEW OPTIONS FOR PHOTOS
AND MUSIC. BEFORE YOU GO WE WANT TO GIVE YOU A SNEAK PEEK
FOR ONE MORE DEVICE WE ARE WORKING ON. AND WITH THAT I
WILL INTRODUCE ANDREW BOWERS FROM THE PIXEL TEAM.
>>Andrew Bowers: THANKS, RISHI.
SO, AS YOU HAVE SEEN TODAY WE ARE MAKING LIFE EASIER THAN
EVER TO MOVE BETWEEN SCREENS IN YOUR LIFE, WHETHER IT IS THE
PHONE IN YOUR POCKET OR THE TV IN YOUR LIVING ROOM. WE’VE
ALSO BEEN THINKING ABOUT HOW TO MAKE OTHER FORM FACTORS EASIER
TO USE LIKE TABLETS. TABLETS ARE GREAT FOR GAMES OR READING
OR WATCHING MOVIES. THEY OFTEN FORCE YOU BACK TO A LAPTOP WHEN
YOU WANT TO WRITE A DOCUMENT OR RESPOND TO A LONG EMAIL. WHILE
THERE ARE PLENTY OF KEYBOARD
ACCESSORIES, THEY ARE OFTEN JUST THAT. THEY GET IN THE WAY
WHEN YOU DON’T WANT TO TYPE. SO THIS FELT LIKE AN AREA THAT
DESERVED TAKING A STEP BACK AND RETHINKING FROM THE GROUND UP.
NOW, WE HAVE TAKEN THIS FIRST PRINCIPLE’S DESIGN APPROACH
BEFORE WITH THE CHROMEBOOK PIXEL REIMAGINING WHAT AN IDEAL
LAPTOP COULD BE. THE PIXEL LINE HAS YIELDED MANY GREAT
BENEFITS PAVING THE WAY FOR A NEW ECOSYSTEM. LET’S ME GIVE
YOU TWO EXAMPLES EXPOUNDING ON WHAT SUNDAR MENTIONED EARLIER.
TWO YEARS AGO WE INTRODUCED AN IMPROVED ARCHITECTURE WITH BOTH
HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE THAT HAS SINCE ROLLED OUT TO MANY
CHROMEBOOKS FOR MANY MANUFACTURERS. WHEREAS, BEFORE
YOU HAD TO SPEND $1,000 ON A LAPTOP TO GET A GREAT TOUCHPAD,
TODAY YOU CAN BUY A CHROMEBOOK AND GET A SIMILAR EXPERIENCE.
WE HAVE USB TYPE-C WHICH ENABLES ONE CONNECTOR ACROSS
YOUR DEVICES, WHETHER IT IS A LAPTOP OR A PHONE. EARLIER
THIS YEAR WE WORKED WITH THE INDUSTRY TO INTRODUCE THIS
STANDARD, LAUNCHED IT ON THIS YEAR’S CHROMEBOOK PIXEL AND NOW
IT’S MAKING ITS WAY ON TO MANY DEVICES, INCLUDING THE NEXUS
PHONES YOU SAW EARLIER. SO IN THE CASE OF TABLETS, WE
ASK OURSELVES, WHAT WOULD AN IDEAL TOUCH PLUS TYPING
EXPERIENCE LOOK LIKE. SOMETHING WHERE THE KEYBOARD
AND THE SCREEN COMPLEMENT EACH OTHER TO MAKE THE SUM GREATER
THAN THE SOUL OF SUM OF ITS PARTS.
PIXEL C, A NEW DEVICE RUNNING ANDROID 6.0 MARSHMALLOW. IT
HAS THE SAIL CLEAN LINES AND ANODIZED ALUM NULL. IT FITS
TOGETHER WITH TIGHT TOLERANCES AND IT FEELS REALLY STURDY AND
SOLID IN YOUR HANDS. NOW, PIXEL C WHERE THE C STANDS FOR
CONVERTIBLE, IS AN ENTIRELY NEW APPROVE TO COMBINING A TABLET
AND A KEYBOARD. CLOSED THEY ARE HELD TOGETHER WITH
SELF-ALINING MAGNETS. WHEN YOU ARE READY TO GET DOWN TO WORK,
SLIDE THE TABLET OFF, TOUCH IT TO THE BACK OF THE KEYBOARD AND
LIFT. THE TABLET ATTACHES MAGNETICALLY AND THE SCREEN IS
FULLY AJUSTABLE BETWEEN 130 AND 135 DEGREES.
THERE’S NO KICKSTAND OR CLASP MECHANISM TO GET IN YOUR WAY.
THE KEYBOARD CONNECTS VIA BLUETOOTH AVOIDING UNSIGHTLY
CONTACTS ON YOUR TABLET AND IT’S ALSO REALLY STURDY. I CAN
HOLD IT BY THE TABLET. I CAN HOLD IT BY THE KEYBOARD. I CAN
HOLD IT UPSIDE DOWN. IT’S VERY EASY TO USE IN YOUR LAP. YOU
CAN USE IT ON THE BED. YOU CAN USE IT ON THE COUCH, WHEREVER
YOU WANT TO USE THE DEVICE. NOW, THE PIXEL C SIZE IS
DESIGNED FOR USABILITY OF THE KEYBOARD WITHOUT SACRIFICING
ITS USABLE AS A TABLET. THE SCREEN SIZE IS 10.2 INCHES WITH
A SQUARE ROOT OF 2 ASPECT RATIO. NOW, THAT’S A METRIC
AREA RATIO THAT’S USED BY A SERIES PAPER THAT A4 IS THE
STANDARD LETTER FOR THE THROUGHOUT MUCH OF THE WORLD.
WHAT IT MEANS IT IS EASY TO USE IN PORTRAIT OR LANDSCAPE
ORIENTATIONS WHILE AT THE SAME TIME GIVING US ENOUGH ROLL ROOM
FOR A FULL SIZE KEYBOARD. A
TYPICAL 13-INCH LAPTOP HAS A 19-MILLIMETER PITCH KEYBOARD
WHERE PITCH IS THE DISTANCE CENTER TO CENTER BETWEEN TWO
KEYS. WE HAVE A 18-MILLIMETER PITCH, MUCH THE SAME BUT IN A
10 EVERYONE PORTABLE SIZE. WE ARE ABLE TO DO THAT BY MOVING
FIVE LESS FREQUENTLY USED KEYBOARD TO THE ONSCREEN
KEYBOARD. THIS WORKS BECAUSE YOUR HANDS ARE IN VERY CLOSE
PROXIMITY TO THE SCREEN. THE PIXEL C’S KEYBOARD HAS THE SAME
GREAT FEEL AS THE CHROMEBOOK PIXEL, 1.4-MILLIMETER TRAVEL,
VERY RESPONSIVE FORCE CURVE. WE TESTED THE LAYOUT AND THE
KEYBOARD OVERALL EXTENSIVELY AND FIND IT TO BE A REALLY
GREAT TOUCH TYPING EXPERIENCE. IT’S NOT JUST FOR A U.S.
LAYOUT. THIS WORKS FOR INTERNATIONAL KEYBOARDS AS
WELL. NOW, WHILE WE DO LOTS OF
TYPING, STYLES YOU WANT TO USE THE TABLET ITSELF AND THE
KEYBOARD SHOULDN’T GET IN THE WAY IN THAT CASE. WITH A PIXEL
C, THE KEYBOARD ATTACHES TO THE BACK OF THE TABLET SECURELY SO
IT’S OUT OF THE WAY BUT CLOSE BY. AND UNLIKE BLUETOOTH
ACCESSORIES, THE PIXEL C KNOWS WHEN TO USE THE PHYSICAL
KEYBOARD AND WHEN TO USE THE ONSCREEN KEYBOARD. SO I CAN
ENTER IN HERE ON THE SCREEN BUT THEN IF I WANT TO DO MORE
EXTENSIVE TYPING, THE KEYBOARD’S THERE FOR ME.
NOW, IT IS A BLUETOOTH KEYBOARD. IT HAS A SMALL
BATTERY. BUT YOU WILL NEVER HAVE TO CHARGE IT EITHER. WHEN
CLOSED, THE TABLET INDUCTIVELY CHARGES THE PIXEL C’S KEYBOARD. JUST A FEW MINUTES A DAY CLOSED
WILL KEEP THE KEYBOARD TOPPED UP. IF YOU DON’T CLOSE IT FOR
A WHILE, DON’T WORRY, THE KEYBOARD WILL LAST FOR OVER TWO
MONTHS OF DAILY ACTIVE USAGE WITHOUT EVER RECHARGING. THIS
KEYBOARD’S EXPERIENCE IS REALLY NICE BUT WE THINK YOU ARE ALSO
GOING TO LIKE THE TABLET. THE PIXEL C’S DISPLAY LIVES UP
TO ITS NAME WITH 4.6 MILLION PIXELS. IT IS SUPER BRIGHT AT
500 NITS AND HAS AMAZING sRGB COLOR GAMUT. ALL OF THIS WHILE
KEEPING THE POWER LOW ENOUGH FOR GREAT BATTERY LIFE ON A
TABLET. DRIVING ALL OF THOSE PIXELS IS A NVIDIA X1 QUAD CORE
PROCESSOR WITH A DESKTOP CLASS MAXWELL GPU. NOW, IF YOU ARE
FAMILIAR WITH GRAPHICS, YOU WILL REALIZE THAT’S A LOT OF
GRAPHICS HORSEPOWER IN A MOBILE DEVICE. YOU WILL SEE THAT
GAMES REALLY SHINE. WE PUT STEREO SPEAKERS ON EITHER SIDE
SO MOVIES COOL TO LIFE AS WELL AND WITH THE ADJUSTABLE ANGLE
SCREEN THERE IS NO MORE PROPPING YOUR TABLET UP ON
BOOKS OR PILLOWS TO WATCH A MOVIE. AS YOU SAW EARLIER
MARSHMALLOW MAKES VOICE INPUT EVEN MORE POWERFUL. WHILE THE
PHONE IS OFTEN CLOSE BY, YOU MAYBE LEAVE YOUR TABLET ON THE
COFFEE TABLE OR ON THE DESK. SO TO ENABLE FAR FIELD VOICE
INPUT, WE’VE ADDED FOUR MICROPHONES SO NOW YOU CAN HAVE
VOICE INTERACTIONS FROM ACROSS THE ROOM. OF COURSE, THE
TABLET CHARGES WITH AN USB TYPE-C, AND ONE OF MY FAVORITE
FEATURES FOR A QUICK CHECK OF BATTERY LIFE, DOUBLE TAP ON THE
LIGHT BAR. NOW, ALL OF THE GREAT
MARSHMALLOW FEATURES YOU SAW EARLIER HERE, LIKE OR OUR PIXEL
DEVICES, THE PIXEL C WILL GET BETTER OVER TIME WITH SOFTWARE
UPDATES EVERY SIX WEEKS. WE THINK THE PIXEL C’S TABLET
AND KEYBOARD EXPERIENCE REALLY UNLOCKS NEW WAYS TO BOTH PLAY
AND BE PRODUCTIVE ON ONE DEVICE.
THE PIXEL C WILL BE AVAILABLE IN TILE FOR THE HOLIDAYS IN THE
GOOGLE STORE, STARTING AT $499 FOR THE TABLET AND $149 FOR THE
WE’RE REALLY EXCITED TO KEYBOARD.
BE EXPANDING THE PIXEL FAMILY TO
NOW SPAN BOTH CHROMEBOOKS AS WELL AS ANDROID TABLETS. LIKE
NEXUS, PIXEL PUSHES THE BOUNDARIES OF WHAT’S POSSIBLE
WITH TECHNOLOGY, MAKING THE ENTIRE GOOGLE ECOSYSTEM BETTER
FOR OUR USERS. EXPECT TO HEAR MORE ABOUT THE PIXEL C IN THE
COMING MONTHS. SO WE HOPE WE’VE GIVEN YOU A
GOOD SENSE OF WHAT’S TO COME TODAY. WE THINK YOU’RE GOING
TO LIKE IT. AND WITH THAT, LET ME
HAND IT BACK TO CHELSEA.>>Chelsea Maughan: THANKS,
ANDREW. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR JOINING US TODAY,
ESPECIALLY FOR EVERYONE WHO JOINED US VIA
LIVE STREAM FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD.
OKAY. FOR EVERYONE IN THE ROOM,
TO ANSWER THE QUESTION YOU ALL HAVE ON YOUR MINDS: YES, YOU
GET TO GO HAVE HANDS-ON TIME WITH THESE DEVICES INSTEAD OF
LISTENING TO US TALK ABOUT THEM FOR ANY LONGER. WHEN YOU WALK
OUT AND HEAD LEFT, YOU’RE GOING TO FIND OUT ROOMS WHERE YOU CAN
CHECK OUT EVERYTHING THAT’S JUST
BEEN ANNOUNCED AND YES, YOU’LL GO HOME WITH THE NEW
CHROMECAST, CHROMECAST AUDIO, AND THE
SNAZZY NEW HUAWEI AND WE’LL BE SENDING
YOU THE NEXUS DEVICES IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS. THANK
YOU SO MUCH.

  1. I thought for sure she was gonna say, "I've been waiting for this feature for a long time and today we are finally announcing offline Google Music!" But no, hash tag sad face.

  2. Я также как и все россияне скорбим по погибшим во ФРАНЦИИ и выражаю свою солидарность со всеми людьми , для кого понятие – демократия, свобода , равенство – не пустые слова , не пустой звук.
    Я также никогда не буду с теми , кто говорит в политике об одном, а делает другое.
    Я буду всегда поддерживать курс Путина, Шойгу, России – на много полярный мир.
    Я рад, что у нас в стране( мире) есть такой Президент и такой Министр обороны.
    Ребята – пока мы вместе с Президентом, Министром Обороны, нашим народом – всякие уроды – отдыхайте и лучше подумайте куда Вам убраться, либо вообще не высовываться нигде и ни как.
    Мы уважаем всех мирных людей , независимо от веро исповедования, но горе тем, кто посягнет на наш суверенитет, нашу независимость.
    Учите уроки истории – когда политики – шулера из Англии и Америки вскормили в 1937 г монстра в одной из стран Европы и решили , что он справится с их желаниями – что из этого получилось – видимо некоторые политики не усвоили.,а жаль
    По законам – история повторяется по спирали – думайте не о себе , а о судьбах своих простых людей.
    .И не плач – те потом в жилетку – не поможет..
    С уважением кр всем простым и и мирным народам – СА Мазепа

  4. Hello Google- I am curious if tegra x1 is customized for Pixel C. Andrew Bowser told us that tegra x1 has a quad-core processor yet NVIDIA stated that tegra x1 has an octa-core processor.

  9. What's Google doing with it's MASSIVE coffers, for poverty, global warming, renewable energy and oppression and everything in the world that needs to be fixed?
