Google I/O Announcements
This year’s Google I/O keynote lasted two (thrilling) hours in which many new features and models were introduced. The new Pixel 6A was announced, which offers just about everything except a headphone jack. Additionally, a new Pixel Watch, Earpods and – to complete the Pixel family – a new tablet are on the list as well. And don’t worry, privacy enhancements have also been thought of this time 😉. Here is a good overview with all the new announcements.
