Brian Tong here, and welcome to Googlicious, for everything Google we're talking about.
Now the Google Pixel might not be the easiest phone to get a hold of right now, but you have a chance to get the Google Home early, at Walmart of all places.
Now according to Reddit users and Android Police, The Google Home is on shelves at a few Walmart locations around the US with the $129 price point but the reports say Walmart employees are not allowed to sell it until it's official release date on November the fourth.
Now I can't wait to get my hands on it and compare this to Amazon Echo.
It's a really exciting time for AI in the home until it becomes Smarter than us.
All right, the Google Home has already been criticised for its slim pickings for support with third-party devices and gadgets.
We know it will get better, and it's a legit complaint.
But right before launch, the Google Assistant is getting if this, then that support, or IFTTT, for short.
Now what makes this great is that by connecting it to different services You can do things like call your phone if you've lost it.
Or send a tweet by voice.
Or set your lights to party mode.
But someone else has already made these premade recipes or actions for you.
Now either way if you have a pixel or a home, get on it and it's worth it.
And speaking of that google pixel phone, as time has gone on, this phones profile can [INAUDIBLE] Use to ride.
Weeks later reviews are still positive and demand is surpassing the supply available.
Some users Pixels phones are arriving past the delivery time that was promised.
So to make up for the delay Google is sending a $50 credit after the phone arrives.
Like seriously who does that these days?
That's a good Google, or a Good-gle.
Sorry, I'll go with that.
And, yes, the camera is still the best ever in a smart phone, so why not showcase some more great footage from the pixel?
This one comes from YouTube channel Cars and Tech from JDM City.
sometimes it's on a slider, other times it's handheld.
There's no color correction here, which shows how it manages To still great detail with difficult lighting shots that are pointed directly at the sun at dusk.
Now this other clip comes from Rob Risko, and it shows how tight it's electronic image stabilization is compared to the tractor's movement in front of him.
You'll still get times where it's correct the footage, But the stability overall is really impressive.
Basically, these two videos were just to show off and illustrate how good this camera is.
And an update for Nexus 6P owners.
You might want to stay away from Android Nugat update if you haven't done it already.
One example shows TheRedyTedy taking a few pictures with his battery at more than halfway charged, but the phone then shuts off and won't turn back on unless you plug it into it's charger.
Other 6P users are reporting similar issues.
It's still early on but it initially appears to be a software issue with Nougat.
And not a hardware problem.
All right, that's gonna do it for this week.
