The Pixel 2 gets camera, Bluetooth and power updates

Tech Industry
[MUSIC] What's up? Brian Tong here. Welcome to Googlicious for everything Google you can think of. And the top story may not sound all that sexy, but the February security patch is rolling out for Pixel. And Nexuses devices with download and over-the-air links available for you to get right now. Now the Pixel II line is getting some nice updates with this patch including improved Bluetooth call quality, improved camera performance in certain light conditions for what's already the best camera phone on planet Earth right now. There's also improved WiFi uplink performance and even improved battery performance for some Pixel 2 XL devices. That sounds like a Good-gle to me. Now another win for Pixel 2 fans, the Googs is enabling its custom imaging processing chip for third party apps. Starting with Instagram, Snapchat, and What WhatsApp. Your camera now just got a whole lot better for some of your favorite apps. It also allows these apps to take advantage of the same computational photography and machine learning that powers the Pixel 2's HDR plus functionality. Now these These pictures show images on the left that don't use the pixel visual core. While images on the right do with HDR plus in action. And I have to say congratulations to all the Philadelphia Eagles fans out there. Fly eagles fly. And Patriot fans, I'm sorry but after escaping with super bowl wins against the Seahawks and Falcons, you were due. And On behalf of the Niner Faithful, we thank you for Jimmy GQ. But what does this have to do with anything? Well nothing really, but if you watched the Super Bowl for the TV commercials, YouTube has put all of them in one place, right here at this link. Like it's totally worth checking out, including those awesome Tide commercials, and yes, Infinity War, baby. Now I also know we have Apple users who watch the show. The YouTube TV app, their own TV streaming service, is now available for the Fourth Generation Apple TV and Apple TV 4K. A Roku version of the app is out as well. And on Apple TV, YouTube TV costs $39.99 a month versus the normal $35 because of course it does. Offering 52 channels, the big 4 broadcast networks and a few other cable channels. And the google voice app, it's finally been updated to support the iPhone 10's new screen resolution while squashing some bugs and improving the overall performance, so get that update if you use the service. All right, let's go to phones and ACC's next flagship phone, the U12, allegedly leaked out at a 5G event, where the unannounced phone was on display for everyone to see. Now there isn't much info about this phone. There's no branding or marking but this is believed to be the U12 with it's rumored 5.7 inch screen. You can see slim bezzles around the edges and the fact that it's pulling near giga-bit speeds is another tip off That is likely using QualComm5G capable, Snapdragon 845 chipset with a X20LT modem designed to get speed results like this. And the 1+ is back at the game after teasing us with a Star Wars edition of the 5T that you can only get in the few months ago. Well, now they're looking out for us and delivering the lava red edition of the 5T to the US and Europe Right before Valentine's Day. Now, their commercial also includes some amazing acting by Emily Ratajkowski. [MUSIC] [MUSIC] [SOUND] Who wouldn't want the best smartphone of the year? That's amazing. Now we talked about everything we know about the Samsung Galaxy S9 up to this point in last week's show but Evan Blass is back at it again, releasing images of the front, the back and the sides of the new Galaxy S9 in one of its new colours- lilac purple. Stay with me. Ooh, aah. Yeah, Blast says the launch colors we can expect are midnight black, titanium gray, coral blue, and this new lilac purple color. All right, that's gonna do it for this week. You can email us at googlicious@cnet.com or tweet me @BrianTong. Thanks for watching, we'll catch you all next time for some more Of that Googlicious. [MUSIC]
