Google's annual Made by Google event fully confirmed the details that have been leaking out for weeks regarding the company's new Pixel 4 and 4 XL phones (read our in-depth Pixel 4 review and Pixel 4 XL review here) and other hardware, including the buzzy Pixel Buds 2 earphones and Pixelbook Go Chromebook laptop. That big phone reveal ended the string of details Google itself had been teasing among the usual rumors, with the company ultimately showcasing a line of devices that Google hopes will put its software all over your daily life.

The event has just wrapped but we have a 10-minute highlight reel of Google's stream if you want to watch a shorter rundown of the main announcements.
