(Pocket-lint) - Google's Made by Google event is now done and dusted.

The thing that's different about this event is that Google teased many of the products earlier in the year at Google I/O, and announced others on social networks in the build-up. The company typically holds an event every October to show off its new hardware and mobile devices, including the latest Pixel phones. Often, the company will also show off other advances in software, artificial intelligence, and machine learning.

Here's everything you need to know about what happened during this year's autumn hardware showcase.

When was the Pixel launch event?

Google held its event on Thursday 6 October 2022 at 10am EDT.


How to watch the Made by Google launch event

Google streamed the event and you can still watch it via the video at the top of this page. It's from the Made by Google YouTube channel.

What happened during the Made by Google event? 

Thanks to the tease at Google I/O 2022 and teases from Google itself in the lead-up to the event, we had a good idea of what was coming.

Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro

Google made the unusual move of giving us a fairly extensive tease of the new Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro at Google I/O in early 2022, before officially announcing the devices in the Made by Google Event on 6 October. The two new devices see an update over the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, broadly sitting in the same position, but looking to enhance the experience for users. While at the Made by Google Event, Google officially launched its new phones. The Pixel 7 starts at £599 / $599 / €649 in Europe, while the Pixel 7 Pro starts at £849 / $899 / €899, so there's no increase in price over previous years.

Google Pixel Watch 

The Google Pixel Watch is now official, with Google unveiling the device at its Made by Google event. The launch was preceded by a tease at Google I/O 2022, followed by plenty of additional information from the company. The Pixel Watch is a major move from Google. It's the first foray into watches from Google's Pixel line, which is driven by the idea that Google designed and built it.

Google Pixel Tablet

Google has used its Made by Google event to share some more details about the forthcoming Pixel Tablet. The tablet is not due to launch until 2023, but we're slowly learning more about it. For instance, we now know that the Pixel Tablet is going to be powered by Google's new Tensor G2 hardware - the same as found in the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. Also. Like the Fire tablets, you'll be able to dock the Pixel Tablet to essentially turn it into a Nest Hub.
