This is the company's latest smart home, smart speaker solution.

We spoke with Sabrina Ellis, the Vice President of Product Management at Google who told us, "we try to build in smarts into everything we do". Other features of the Pixelbook Go will include are a range of Intel Core CPUs, including m3, i5 and i7 depending on model, two built-in USB Type-C ports and a choice of "not pink" and black designs. To do so, you need to "Quick Gesture over your phone" for a speed boost, but this is where the fun ends as Motion Sense fails to recognize my frenzied hand waving. Today, Google announced that it's simplifying things a bit. This is a great offering from Google and a brilliant way to celebrate the new release. For those wondering, it isn't the first of these new Nest/Home products.

The Nest Hub Max is available now for $229.

Google Assistant's upgrade means that it is now better at dealing with commands in context, as well as handling follow-up commands more intelligently. This is still the same small puck-like device it was before with the same fabric and plastic combination.

First, the Nest Mini now has a hole in the back which will let you hang it on a wall.

Google reckons the added camera also assists in Portrait mode, which previously relied on Android tech to generate those slick depth of field effects.

Rick Osterloh, SVP of devices and services at Google, discusses the new Google Pixel Buds ear pods during a Google launch event on October 15, 2019 in New York City.

Another change can be found under the hood.

Coming to features, the Nest Mini has 40% stronger bass than the Home Mini.

One of the knock-on effects of the increased audio performance is an increase in power drawn by the unit. However, WinFuture does say the Nest Mini will come with a more powerful 15W power adapter. We won't know that for sure until we get it in for testing, but its not looking promising for anyone that needs that level of performance.

Google's lower-priced devices have been top sellers, but are far from being major profit drivers. So it should come as no surprise that in spite of the new name the Nest Mini is created to be an affordable device.

The Nest Mini will keep the $49 launch price of the Home Mini but expect it to sell for less during sales. Of course, the biggest difference in the Google Pixel 4 XL vs the Galaxy Note 10 is Samsung's S Pen stylus in the Note.

Google's product rollouts have been slow and deliberate, but the company has said that just having the devices in the market has been good for its brand.
