Pixel 3, Google Home Hub and Pixel Slate: Everything Google just announced

The company debuted its phones for 2018, a camera-free home control center and a new detachable Chrome OS tablet.

To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Google's annual fall hardware event proved to be not quite as jam-packed as Amazon's recent surprise clown-car-full of announcements, but the company did announce the long-expected new phones, plus a tablet, laptop, smart home hub and AR partnerships with Marvel and Childish Gambino

Some might also say Google hopes the Pixel 3 and Home Hub dazzle you enough to brush off privacy concerns .

And that doesn't include its pre-event announcements, including its Assassin's Creed beta test of its Chrome-based Project Stream cloud gaming architecture. Or, the company's decision to shut down Google+ after exposing thousands of users' data.

While it wasn't officially announced, Google also update its Chromecast streaming dongle -- now with 5GHz support.

The Pixels were widely and completely leaked before the event, so there were few surprises when it came to Google's update to last year's Pixel 2 and its big brother, the Pixel 2 XL.

Pixel Slate and Chrome OS

The Pixel Slate is a brand-new, detachable-style follow-up to the Pixelbook, the company's great but pricey Chrome OS laptop. Since we're seeing growth in $600-class Chrome OS detachables and convertibles, it's unsurprising that Google took this approach.
