Launch Night In Event: Google announces Google TV and Nest Audio


During a virtual event named “LaunchNightIn” on September,30, Google introduced a range of new products and services “that will offer a little joy, entertainment and connection for people” as says google, including two new smartphones, Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5, a new Chromecast with Google TV, and the new smart speaker Nest Audio. In this article I will review the  last two ones: Google TV, and Nest Audio. 


Google TV:

Google announces a new Chromecast with a totally new design entirely different from the previous generation of Chromecast, that comes with a remote control and runs in its own platform names Google TV.

Google TV is a new platform from Google that will replace Android TV somewhere next year, and it works independently on the new Chromecast device like the Amazon Fire TV Stick running Fire OS or Apple TV running on tvOS, and it can run apps without needing to cast from a phone. Google TV also comes with a bunch of preinstalled streaming apps out of the box like Netflix, YouTube, Disney Plus, Hulu, and Amazon Prime, and any app running on Android TV will work normally in Google TV.


The new Chromecast comes now with a remote control that will help you to control your new TV experience, it's include a power button, an input button, and volume rockers, a home button, mute button, Google Assistant button, and dedicated buttons for YouTube and Netflix.

Chromecast with Google TV is available in three colors: snow, sky and sunrise for $49 in the U.S for now, and in more countries by the end of this year.

Nest Audio :

Google also unveiled a new smart speaker “Nest Audio” during this event, which comes in a new design with a 75% increase in volume and a 50% increase in bass boost compared to the original Google Home speaker.

 Nest Audio can automatically adjust his volume according to the background noise in the home thanks to Ambient EQ feature included with it, while the Media EQ feature let the speaker choose automatically the right kind of audio settings depends on the content that you’re listening to (music, podcasts, audiobooks...), and it can be paired to a second Nest Audio speaker to obtain a stereo sound, and if you have multiple speakers in different areas or rooms in your home, you can easily jump from one speaker to another or play the same audio on all of them in the same time by asking that to Google Assistant integrated in the device.

Nest Audio is available in five colors: Sage, Sand, Sky, Chalk and Charcoal for $99 in the U.S, and you can preorder right now it from the Google Store.
