Google's Marshmallow treats include new Nexus phones, Chromecasts and the Pixel C.

Tech Industry
[MUSIC] What's going on? Brian Tong here with your Googlicious. It's everything inside the world of Google that we could pack inside of a show. And there's plenty packed in after Google's big product announcement. Now let's jump right into it, and the rumor mills were right on the money with the new Nexus 6p and 5x phones. Google's two new phones are different from each other. With the 6p setting itself up as the flagship phone. To showcase Android Marshmallow. The Nexus 6P brings a 5.7 inch AMOLED display with a rear side fingerprint sensor, a Snapdragon 810 processor with 3 GB of RAM as well. It also features the best camera we've seen from the Nexus line With 12.3 megapixels, laser assisted auto focus and a f2.0 aperature, I can't wait to stack it up next to the other phones on the market. Now, the 6p also has Gorilla Glass 4 and dual, front facing stereo speakers. One of my favorite phone features, it starts at 499 for the 32 gig model and is available for pre order now. Now onto the Nexxus 5, which might be the best deal in town with a 5.2 inch screen for a pure android experience. It brings the same camera, the same fingerprint sensor, a more than capable snap dragon 808 processor, two gigs of ram, and gorilla glass three with a starting price 379 for the 60 gig model available for pre-order now. And neither phone brings optical image stabilization There's no wireless charging, and no micro SD card slot. These might be big omissions, and a step back for some people. I totally agree. But where the Nexus 6 really didn't resonate with its bulky design. The new 6P and 5X will be great phones for users who really love a pure Android experience. And I already have mine on pre-order. That's right, the Applebite guy can have an Android phone. And I also had an HTC One, so, I'm sorry if I broke your heart, but I just love tech. Now the products that have really captured my attention along with everyone else were the new Chromecast and Chromecast Audio. Forget how the dongle looks like, you'll barely see it. And forget how this color looks like lemonade. Not yellow, but lemonade. And this one is coral. I can tell you as an expert in colors, that's not coral. That's red. And this is black. So, yeah. They got that one right. Both will retail for a cool $35 and bring improved 802.11ac wi-fi support. New Chromecast brings faster video playback, and its new app brings a new search that looks for a movie or a show and tells you which service or app you can watch it from. The Chromecast audio can stream music from your phone to any speaker in the house it's connected to, and now supports Spotify for premium members. It's even designed like the smallest vinyl record you'll ever find. Now, Google also announced their [UNKNOWN] service will be getting a family plan option, For 14.95 for six users, that's the same as Apple Music's pricing. But the magic with Chromecast products is being able to use any iOS device, Android device, and even your Mac or Windows laptop. It truly supports any platform, and this might be the ultimate stocking stuffer this holiday season. You'll just have to teach your mom or dad how to use it. All right, Google wasn't done. It made sure to throw its hat into the tablet-with-a-detachable-keyboard market. With the pixel see pitting itself directly with Microsoft and Apple this holiday itself. It has a 10.2 inch screen, 308 pixels per inch, and Nvidia x1 quad core processing, and it'll be running [MUSIC] Android Marshmallow, not Chrome OS. Its magnetic keyboard case looks sleek and sturdy. And was even demoed in every position by Andrew Bowers. Who, honestly, looks like a cross between Apple's Tim Cook and Neil Patrick Harris. And I only bring that up because all of you were thinking it. Or. At least one of you were. Now the Pixel C will be available later this year and starts at 499 for the 32 gig version. The keyboard is 149. And if you weren't sure, Google is making it clear that it wants to be your one stop tech shop for the Android ecosystem. I think overall it was a solid keynote. The new Nexus phones will win back users that were turned off by the Nexus 6, because it's really all about featuring Marshmallow. I love the Chromecast. The pixel C isn't for me, and the lack of a Chrome OS will turn off the diehards, but it's literally Google's own answer to the iPad, and my favorite part of the keynote, this guy, who was really, and I mean really, into playing that Angry Birds Go game. All right, that's gonna do it for this week's show. You can email us at googlicious@cnet.com or tweet me @briantong. Tell us what got you fired up or what let you down and we'll throw some of your comments in the show next week. Thanks for watching, we'll see you next time for some more of that Googlicious.
