When was the Google Pixel 3 event?

Google's so-called Pixel 3 event, also known as its annual Made by Google event, kicked off at 11am ET (4pm GMT) on 9 October 2018.

What happened at the Google Pixel 3 event?

Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL

Google announced its next-generation Pixel smartphones, following extensive leaks.

Called the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, the most obvious difference between the two, aside from size, is that the Pixel 3 XL has notch in its display, as well as a "chin", while the smaller Pixel 3 is notch-less with top and bottom bezels. Both sport a single rear camera. Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL follows last year's Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will be available in the UK from 1 November, US from 18 October. Pricing starts at £739 in the UK, $799 in the US. You can pre-order the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones now.

Google Pixel Slate

Google announced a Pixel-branded, Chrome OS-powered tablet with a detachable keyboard.

It's called Google Pixel Slate, and it's very much like the Surface Pro. It features front-facing and rear-facing camera with a Portrait mode and advanced camera technology, a fingerprint scanner, and a new keyboard cover with a kickstand. Google Pixel Slate follows last year's Google Pixelbook, a hybrid device that functions as both a laptop and a tablet.

The Pixel Slate will go on sale from November starting at $599/£549, while the Slate Keyboard will cost $199/£189 separately.

Google Home Hub

Google announced a new smart display, joining the Google Home family.

Called Google Home Hub, it's similar to the Amazon Echo Show and Facebook Portal. It consists of a display mounted on a speaker base, and a minimal design with a grey and white colour scheme similar to other Google Home products.

It's available for the super price of $149 in the US, while the UK price is a very competitive £139, and it'll be available from retailers such as Argos and Currys PC World. Pre-orders are open now - and it'll be in stores from 22 October in the US, UK, and Australia.

Pixel Stand

Google announced a charging stand that will let you juice up your phone while it's propped up in portrait or landscape mode. It's a dock that is powered over USB-C. It supports fast charging and can charge any Qi-compatible device, including the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

It can even auto-switch the phone into Do Not Disturb mode when it’s docked at night.

Pixel Stand will play nicely with Google Assistant, too, so you can still use "Hey Google" commands when your phone is docked. But the Portrait mode is the key feature, because it will essentially let you cycle through photos in your Google Photos albums as if it were a live photo frame. It also works with Nest Hello, allowing a docked phone to display who’s at the door via your security system.

It seems like Google thinks you'll want to keep Pixel Stand by the bedside. It’ll cost $79/£69 when it launches on 1 November.

Other devices introduced

New Chromecast

Although it wasn't actually mentioned during the Made by Google 2018 event a new Google Chromecast is now available. Listed on Google's own store and other retailers in the UK, such as, it costs £30 and is available in two colours: chalk (white) and charcoal (black).

You plug the new Chromecast into a spare HDMI slot on your TV. It requires power, which is provided through a Micro-USB lead. Like the last Chromecast, and others before it, you use your phone or computer to set off a video stream. Video output is up to 1080p 60fps (you need the existing Chromecast Ultra for 4K), and the latest device connects through dual-band Wi-Fi (802.11ac 2.4GHz/5GHz).
