Speaking to Gadgets 360 about the Now Playing feature on feature phones, Google's Brian Rakowski, President, Android Platform, had explained that the new always-on song recognition feature on new Pixel devices won't essentially use data to identify songs playing in the background. Interested buyers can log on to Google's official website to pre-order Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 smartphones. For example, Verizon claims to deliver Pixel XL 2 products by October 25 and those products are very much in stock. But don't overlook what these accessories add to the phone, as they could prove to be the Pixel's secret weapon against rival phones such as the iPhone 8, iPhone X, Galaxy S8 and Note 8. The Pixel 2 starts at $649 for the base model while the Pixel 2 XL can be yours for $849, almost twice what the base model of the Nexus 6P was valued at.

While this isn't new for Google, considering our recent experiences, we still believe that Google is getting ready for a paradigm switch and we can't wait to see what they have prepared for us during Google's Pixel launch event. This is done by using your smartphones sensor... And they are. Which possibly explains why the announcement at the event that really took my interest was buried right at the end of the 105-minute presentation: Pixel Buds.

Among the new entries are two new smart speakers that target both the mass market and the audiophile niche, and two next-generation upgrades to the company's Pixel phone line. For the Pixel 2, the massive bottom and top bezels wrap up in a 5-inch display, quite similar to its predecessor. Below are the settings you'll need to tweak. New wireless headphones instantly translate languages.

Unlike Apple's AirPods, the Pixel Buds are linked with a cable, which makes them harder to lose and lets users wear them around their neck when not listening to music. In addition to helping with translations, the Assistant can place phone calls, get directions and give you alerts at your command. No, in typical Google fashion it did not stock up enough units so it could be December before you get to own your panda XL.

Located at the back of each earbud, the cable loop presses against the inside of the ear to prevent the earbud from dislodging. That's an OK design decision as far as these things go, but it means the Pixel Buds don't look almost as elegant as Apple's truly wire-free AirPods, which cost the same as Google's new earbuds.

However, it has Apple beat on the translation capacity, small, battery-charging case and sleek design.

Camera provisions in the Pixel 2 XL are particularly impressive, and testing has already indicated that the snapper in the Pixel 2 generation is possibly the most impressive in the history of smartphone technology. Whether it's automatically adjusting our lights and heating for the time of the day or learning our habits and interests to suggest us new shows to watch, machine learning is a futuristic idea that is quickly becoming a bigger part of our lives thanks to Google's innovative new software and systems. Google is doing it with just one camera instead of two.

There's a shutter button on the Clips camera itself, for those times when you absolutely want to make sure you capture a particular shot.

Google has unequivocally advanced the counterfeit consciousness innovation incorporated into its scope of cameras, and this is reflected in the exceptional stamp that has been managed the camera by DxOMark.

Google is certainly making an effort to lead the race in the smart home speaker competition.
