That’s it! Google I/O 2022 keynote is a wrap! Wow! Pixel 6a, Pixel Watch, Pixel Buds Pro, Pixel 7, and Pixel Tablet on top of all those amazing software announcements was more than anyone bargained for so make sure to check Laptop Mag for our in-depth coverage on all of today’s announcements.

The Google I/O 2022 keynote is now complete; if you missed it, you can watch the whole video below, although the second part of the presentation was jam-packed with considerably more hardware than anyone expected. The Pixel 6a and Pixel Watch were both unveiled, but Google surprised us with Pixel Buds Pro, a look at the Pixel 7, and a Pixel Tablet that won’t be available until next year. This was the frosting on the cake after a slew of new software was unveiled during the first half of the presentation, including updates to Google Assistant, Google Photos, and other services. You may read about the highlights as they happened below or watch for yourself.
Pixel Tablet!? Ok, now Google is just going wild. The tablet won’t arrive until next year, but we got a brief glimpse at the hardware that will integrate with the rest of the lineup. Pixel Watch will feature deep integration with Fitbit, continuous heart rate and sleep tracking and track your progress against your goals. Coming later this fall. No pricing information, so we are expecting Pixel Watch to arrive alongside the Pixel 7. Pixel Buds Pro will deliver 7 hours of battery life with ANC on and 11 hours without ANC, an impressive figure for the earbuds themselves, so we’ll be interested to test that out. Spacial audio support will arrive after launch. Pixel Buds will be available starting July 21 for $199. The Pixel Buds lineup is being expanded with Pixel Buds Pro this summer, the first Google earbuds to feature active noise cancellation.
The cameras offer support for all of the great camera features that debuted in the Pixel 6 and there are even improvements to Magic Eraser, allowing you to change the color of potentially distracting objects rather than removing them completely. In the sample above a bright green cooler was changed to that more muted tan.
