Among its many features, 9to5Google offers a YouTube channel, where its first video was posted on January 30, 2015. With 696+ videos, the channel is a great place to keep up with the latest tech news. It covers topics like Google News, Phones, Chrome OS, Pixels and more.

Google Pixel 6a

Google is planning to release a new mid-range smartphone called the Google Pixel 6a in July. It will include a 60Hz OLED display, a fingerprint scanner, and the company's flagship Tensor processor. It will also have six gigabytes of RAM and 128GB of storage. It will also support a number of Pixel-exclusive features. It will be priced at $449, and the company says it will offer three years of security patches and updates.

The Pixel 6a was originally due to receive its first update in early August, but the company has since made it eligible for Android's Beta program. This means that starting next week, it will be able to run Android 13 Beta builds. This means that Pixel 6a owners will soon have the latest version of Android.

Google has made some changes to the Google Home app. Its "Feed" has been revamped. Instead of displaying a series of informative cards, the app will now feature a condensed list of events. The new design should reduce the amount of duplicate entries in the "Feed".

The Google Pixel 6a is now available in several countries outside the US. However, there have been complaints about the price. The device is widely regarded as too expensive. If you are in the market for a new smartphone, it's worth considering the Pixel 6a and other models.

The Pixel 6a also includes a feature that detects car crashes. Using location data, motion sensors, and ambient audio, the device will try to get the driver's attention if it detects a collision and then call 911 if it is unable to. If you'd like to set up the car crash detection on your device, you can follow the directions in the Pixel setup app. But note that you may have to turn it on manually after you've installed the app.

Google Pixel Stand app

Google has added new home control features to the Pixel Stand app, which will make it easier to use your smart home devices. The new functionality is similar to the power menu on Android 11 and will make it easier to access smart home devices like lights and cameras. Users will be able to select individual smart appliances and control them using a tap on their display.

If you are using a Google Pixel smartphone, the Pixel Stand is a great accessory to keep at hand. This wireless charging accessory allows you to dock your phone and use it hands-free. The Pixel Stand also supports Google Assistant, which will give you access to Google's smart assistant.

In addition to being able to charge your phone while using it on the stand, you can also change the fan speed and mode. You can also adjust the brightness of your phone screen and set a sunrise alarm. You can also manually switch between Power Boost, Quiet, and Auto modes.

The app is compatible with both the Pixel 6 Pro. Its UI has been refreshed with the Material You refresh. It has also added shortcuts for the performance and quiet modes. It also hints at a new fan feature. The Pixel Stand is expected to launch with the Pixel 6 Pro.

Users can charge their phones using the Pixel Stand in various positions, including on their side or back. To do this, users must make sure that the power adapter is connected to a working power outlet. Moreover, users must read the manual carefully so they do not get injured by their devices while charging.

Some users have reported that the Pixel Stand app causes problems with wireless charging. However, this does not mean that users can't use the Pixel Stand. It requires modifications to the device in order to make it compatible with wireless charging. It may require starting the phone in safe mode before starting the stand again.

The Pixel Stand app supports the Pixel 3 XL, as well as the Pixel 4 and Pixel 5. It does not work with the "A" variants, however, as these phones do not have wireless charging.

Google Home app

Google recently made the decision to redesign the Android Home app, making it more efficient and user-friendly. Users can now get their Google Assistant-enabled smart home devices through a single app. But there was a downside to the app's current UI: it's a bit cluttered. So Google is fixing that now and rolling out the new version of the Android Home app.

One of the major changes is the redesigned home view. Large device icons are being replaced with rectangular tiles with rounded corners. The updated home view makes it easier to adjust the volume and brightness of your devices. You can still turn your devices on and off by tapping on their buttons, and long-pressing a button will bring up full-page controls.

Google is also preparing a special program to allow participants to test new features and functionality of the Android Home app. The program will allow users to download beta versions of the app from the Play Store. It will also allow users to report bugs and make suggestions. However, Google warns that early features may not be stable.

Google Smartwatch

If you're a Pixel fan, you may want to check out some recent news about the company's new smartwatch. This could be a direct competitor to the Apple Watch, which is already available for preorder. Google's new smartwatch is expected to come with a custom version of Android WearOS that integrates with Google services. It will have a 300-mAh battery and a USB-C charging cable. It will also feature cellular connectivity, making it the first Wear OS smartwatch to support Google Fi.

While other smartwatches on the market already support contactless payments, the Pixel is likely to be more convenient and accessible. It will also have access to Google Wallet, which will allow users to pay instantly without pulling out their phone. In addition, it will have multiple bands. According to one source, there will be up to 20 different straps available. Some of them look rubbery while others look sporty.

The Pixel Watch will have interchangeable straps, including a silicone band, fabric band, and a link bracelet. It will also have native Google apps such as Google Assistant and Google Wallet. It will also support integration with Fitbit, so you can track your heart rate and sleep patterns.

The new Pixel Watch will also have a new chipset. It will be based on Samsung's Exynos processor, which debuted on the Samsung Galaxy Watch in 2018. The Samsung Exynos processor will be paired with a co-processor that will offload tasks from the main CPU.

The Pixel Watch with cellular connectivity will cost $399 in the US. However, the pricing will depend on carrier deals. It's expected to arrive in the market on October 6, and pre-orders will open soon after. The marketing materials have been full of words like "route," "agenda," and "health." One of the most interesting features of the cellular version is the heart rate monitor.

9to5Google - Latest News and Podcasts From Google

This is a list of news stories and podcasts from 9to5Google. In this week's episode, we discuss what's happening with Google's upcoming high-end Pixel phone. This includes reports on the Snapdragon 765, a head-tracking camera, and chat apps that stream to a connected Chromebook.

Google's next high-end Pixel phone may be packing a Snapdragon 765

According to XDA Developers, Google's next high-end Pixel phone could be packing a Snapdragon 765. This chip is a high-end mid-range processor that includes a 5G modem. The Snapdragon 765 is not Qualcomm's biggest platform, but it does have many advantages over its predecessor, including improved camera performance and voice control detection. This chip should provide Google with a good foundation for the upcoming Pixel phone, which will be able to stand up to the competition.

While the Galaxy S20 and OnePlus 8 have Snapdragon 865 processors, the Pixel 5 is unlikely to feature this chip. Its smaller size will mean it will be slower than the iPhone 12 and will fall behind the OnePlus 8. However, if this is indeed the case, it means that Google's next high-end Pixel phone could be packing a Snapdragon 765 processor.

Google has a new strategy in the Pixel phone business. It is trying to make its devices more affordable and appealing to consumers. The Pixel 5 starts at $699, a drop from the $999 starting price of its predecessor. It is cheaper than most flagship phones. In fact, the Pixel 5 costs less than the OnePlus 8 Pro, which just received a $100 discount.

The Pixel 6 Pro is currently the best phone made by the company, with a beautiful display and a versatile camera system. It was launched alongside the standard Pixel 6 but differs from the standard model in a few key areas. The Pixel 6 Pro's screen has QHD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate.

The Pixel 5 offers great camera performance and a refined software experience, but it's far from a perfect phone. Its lack of a telephoto lens is a detraction, and its processor isn't as powerful as the flagships of 2020. The price of the Pixel 5 may still be competitive with similar-priced smartphones, but the mid-range processor makes the value equation tougher.

Interestingly, the Snapdragon 765G chipset could be the one packing the Snapdragon 765 in Google's next high-end Pixel phone. While the Snapdragon 765G isn't as powerful as its predecessor, it provides similar performance. It supports 5G connectivity and features the same dual rear camera setup. Both smartphones have a 128GB storage and 18W wired charging.

Support for spatial audio with head tracking

Spatial audio is one of the most exciting features on Android right now, and Google promised it would come to the Pixel phones in Android 13. The feature is finally here, and we're thrilled. This new technology allows users to experience a more immersive sound experience through headphones. By turning your head while listening to music, you can hear different channels from all angles, creating the effect of surround sound.

However, this new technology may not work well with Bluetooth earphones. Bluetooth earphones can't transmit the information required for dynamic head tracking. The head tracking feature requires low-latency transmission and an acceleration sensor. The new feature will work on the Pixel phones and Pixel 6a, but it's not compatible with older Bluetooth earphones.

Spatial audio first became popular with Apple's AirPods Pro, and now Google has confirmed that it will also come to the Pixel 6 Pro. It's also supported on Android 13 with the introduction of Google's Spatializer APIs. The QPR beta sports a toggle for spatial audio, which also works with wired headphones.

Spatial audio has multiple uses, from making listening to music more immersive to videoconferencing or chatting with friends on Clubhouse. The new technology even works on the way you move your phone, meaning that you can control the sound wherever you move your device. If you're interested in learning more about this innovative technology, check out the full blog post here.

As you might have guessed, Netflix also supports the feature. It's not quite ready yet, but a spokesperson for the streaming company confirmed that it supports the feature in iOS 14. However, it will likely take some time before other streaming services make it available to their customers.

Other new features include Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) audio support and the ability to use headphones with head tracking. This new feature will help users get better audio quality, as well as be more power-efficient. The update also introduces a new language setting, a private photo picker, and improved tablet UI.

Chromebook chat apps will be able to stream to a linked Chromebook

Google has announced that Pixel users will be able to use their phone's chat app on a Chromebook. The new feature is known internally as Eche, and it will allow users to enjoy the best of Android chat on a Chromebook. In addition, the feature will enable users to continue conversations they've begun on an Android phone from their Chromebook. This will create an even more seamless connection between your phone and your computer.

If this feature works for your computer, you'll be able to watch videos, play games, and interact with apps using the Chromebook. You'll see your chats and notifications on the connected Chromebook as a stream. You can resize the window or reposition it as necessary without disturbing apps on your phone. While this feature is not yet available on other platforms, it will likely be available in the future.

Google also plans to allow users to stream Android chat apps to a Chromebook with Android 13. This will allow users to mirror any Android chat app on a connected Chromebook. The company is working on this feature, but it is not yet known whether it will work on non-Chrome OS computers as well.

The Pixel will also allow users to use their chat apps on their PC. Users will be able to chat with their friends in real-time without interrupting other apps on the phone. This is a huge step forward for users. The new feature will be available for all Pixel chat apps. The messaging app includes a menu button to access the list of installed apps. Streaming from your phone to your PC will allow you to use chat apps on multiple devices without worrying about interruptions.

Another major step towards bringing the Pixel to the next level is the introduction of cross-device streaming apps. Developer preview versions of Android 13 have the ability to support this feature, which will allow users to seamlessly connect their Pixel phones to multiple devices. This feature is still in the early stages, but it will be released to the public in the coming months.

Streaming Android chat applications to a linked Chromebook will allow users to experience the full experience of Android chats on a larger screen. Streaming across devices is made possible through a special web app that allows the phone to create a virtual screen on the computer. Streaming from one device to another is possible with any browser, but the experience may differ on the Chrome OS platform.

The cross-device streaming feature currently only works on Android 13 or higher. However, the requisite apps must be available on Android 13 or higher. It will likely take a system update or even a Pixel feature drop for the feature to be officially available.

9to5Google Teases Cross-Device Streaming

Google is preparing to stream notifications and apps from the Pixel smartphone to your desktop. You can get an exclusive first look at this new feature thanks to 9to5Google, which has enabled it. Google has designed a variety of ways to connect your Pixel phone to your desktop, including a Phone Hub that will give you quick access to settings and notifications.


The latest Google new Pixel Android Home has been teased in a private feature design draft, but there's still a lot we don't know. One of the most interesting features is a widget system, which would let you quickly snap information into a grid. The widgets would each take up a tile, and they could include a clock and weather widgets. Other new features could include a large-screen version of the popular "Glanceables" widgets.

The Pixel tablets are expected to feature a Nest Audio speaker and a Google Home hub Max speaker, which would make it the perfect smart home display. Google's first-generation Tensor chip will make this tablet an excellent smart home multitasker. Its larger screen is expected to support a large number of applications.

Google has been working on a way to stream notifications and apps from the Pixel phone to your desktop. The 9to5Google team has enabled this feature for an exclusive look. The Pixel phone will connect with your desktop in a number of ways, including the Phone Hub, which will allow you to access notifications and make quick settings without having to leave your home or desk.

The Google Pixel will also be cross-device streaming with controls, allowing you to view your apps on any device. In addition, the new Chrome web app will stream your Android apps. This will allow you to see your recent notifications, as well as control media playback. You can also respond to messages using the web app.

At a Glance widget

The Google Pixel is Google's flagship smartphone. It also features an app store and Chrome OS. It may also be used for home automation. Until it is released, however, there is still some uncertainty about the device. Currently, there are no details about the Google Pixel tablet, but we expect that it will come with a Nest Audio speaker and a Nest Hub Max speaker. It should make for a great smart home display.

The Pixel also has a feature called "At A Glance" that displays what you need to know at a glance. The feature will probably be available on the Pixel phone, but it may also make its way to the Chrome OS platform. The feature will be displayed as a grid of widgets, each having its own place on the screen.

The Google Pixel supports cross-device streaming, which means it can work with another device. In addition to this, you can use the virtual display to display any apps you have on your phone or tablet. You can also use the phone's menu button to see the list of installed apps. You can then launch any app that you need.

The Google Pixel will also have cross-device functionality, which lets you stream messaging apps from one device to another. The feature isn't exclusive to the Pixel, but it could be a way to attract Pixel users. The company has also released the first Android 13 developer preview for the Pixel. The developer preview also shows the building blocks for chat app streaming, which is a feature that will make any Android phone usable.

Google's ability to reply to any message on Chrome OS

At CES 2022, Google revealed a new feature for Chromebooks: the ability to reply to any message. This new feature will allow users to see incoming messages, respond to them, and view the live feed of apps installed on the phone. The feature is also available on Windows 11 devices.

The new feature will also be compatible with Android users. Android users have been able to reply to message notifications for quite some time, but Google is now rolling out the feature for Chrome OS. When you receive a notification, tap it and a preview of the message appears. It also includes the sender's name and allows you to scroll up and reply to the message. Some users have also reported that the replies will appear live in Google Messages.

The ability to reply to any message on Chrome OS will be a welcome addition for those who frequently use their phones to stay connected to their computers. This feature will make it easier to keep up with all of the messages you receive. However, this feature will probably not be available for all devices just yet. It will most likely take weeks for it to roll out, but if it ever comes to the public, it'll make it much easier to communicate.

Google has been working on software to make it possible for Android users to use their phones on Chromebooks. It previously announced that it would release this feature during CES 2022. Now, 9to5Google has successfully tested the feature on an Android phone and Windows 11 computer, and has revealed that it works as expected.

Google's plans for cross-device streaming

Cross-device streaming will allow you to stream apps from your Android device to your computer. The feature was first discovered in an Android 13 Developer Preview 1 build. It will also allow you to stream Android apps to Chromebooks and Windows 11 computers. The developers haven't announced a release date yet, but you can bet that it won't be long before the feature is ready for everyone.

Cross-device streaming will be available from an integrated app on the Pixel. It will allow users to stream apps from their phone to their desktop or laptop, without interrupting the apps running on their phones. The Google Pixel will even allow users to use their messaging apps on their computer while streaming them from their phone.

Cross-device streaming is already available on the Pixel, but 9to5Google only got it to work with its messaging app. Google is also working on cross-device streaming on Chrome OS. If you're a Pixel user, you can stream your content to a PC using your Google account.

Another way to make cross-device streaming possible on Android is to make Android messaging apps compatible with Chromebooks. Google also wants to make the experience of using your Android phone on a PC similar to what Apple users experience. This may happen in the developer preview of Android 13.

While these findings are promising, they should be interpreted with caution. Google did not immediately reply to a request for comment on the reports, but the new Android operating system is in its early development phase. Even so, it's possible that the final version will change significantly.
