Enhanced Google Home app all set to make smart home experience better

The new devices stay true to the design cues from previous Pixel phone releases. Google looks less like the Google of old (who made Nexus phones, for example) and now looks much closer to its big rivals, Amazon and Apple. For reasons that we've covered a dozen times by now (a shipment of Pixel 3 XL prototypes was allegedly stolen and sold on the black market) it felt like we knew just about everything there was to know about the company's third-generation Pixel phones long before they were unveiled on stage in New York City this past Tuesday.

In response, the South Korean tech firm insisted Android fans could find their "safe haven" if they picked up a Galaxy Note 9 over the Google Pixel 3 XL.

The Pixel 2 was a slender device with a thickness of 7.8mm compared to the Pixel 3's 7.9mm waist, which admittedly cost it its headphone jack and any potential of expandable storage.

After days weeks months of rumors, leaks, and a whole lot of hype, the Pixel 3 is finally here. He snapped the same photo with a Pixel 3 and an iPhone XS while both phones were zoomed to 2x.

For instance, the camera's features for better shots will take advantage of software on the device itself, so that nothing gets sent to Google's servers - unless you enable a backup feature with Google Photos.

The commission has also written to Mumbai police, seeking information on the action it had taken on Ms Dutta's complaint. Earlier in the day, Patekar, who was shooting for his upcoming film "Housefull 4" in Jodhpur, landed here Saturday.

Google didn't share a list of every feature older Pixel and Pixel 2 devices will get, or when they're coming. Not only is there a 12.2-megapixel camera on the back but there's also dual 8-megapixel f/1.8 snapper on the front with a super-wide f/2.2 lens lens for a new "Group Selfie Mode".

This hardshell case wraps around the back and corners of your Google Pixel 3, giving some scuff and scratch protection without any bulk at all. The Pixel 3 will have a new chip, called Titan, to store keys to the most sensitive information, including those needed to unlock the phone and descramble stored data. It's not the first of its kind, as Lenovo already has the Smart Display, which has an identical feature set. Now you can do your household chores without even lifting your finger. To go along with the new phones, it also announced the Google Home Hub, the Mi Box S and the Pixel Slate. These could be the three colour options of the Pixel 3 models.

For the time being, the Pixel 2 will continue to retail alongside its upgrade. This new feature makes low-light photographs brighter and clearer using machine learning.

Interested parties can view the app listing on the Play Store, though the app listing is only compatible with (and pre-installed on) Pixels, and the listing won't appear up if you aren't signed into an account with a compatible device. Whether you like it or not, it seems that Google felt obligated in a way to include the "feature" many companies are loading their phones up with nowadays.
