>> She's only ten! >> I heard it basically has   night vision. >> Really?   >> Kids at school are saying it can do magic tricks.   >> Are you serious? >> They're saying you can edit a   full feature film on it. >> Shhh.  

>> I heard you'll never have to take your earbuds out again.   >> What? >> You'll never have to take   your earbuds out again. >> Deer Hugs?   I don't know that band. >> The universe is telling me   that it will help with my stress levels.   [Dogs barking]. >> And it can even erase   annoying sounds. >> Really?  

>> Yeah! >> No!   >> But do you really think all those rumors are true?   [Laughter]. >> Well, let's see.   >> Who are you talking to? >> The people.   >> Please welcome Rick Osterloh! [Cheers and Applause].   >>RICK OSTERLOH: Hello, and thanks for joining us, whether   you're streaming the show from around the world or live with us   here in Pier 57 in New York City. And an extra-special welcome to   our friends in Japan and across Asia, who are staying up late with us today.  

2023 is a big year for Google. If you've been following the   company, you know we celebrated our 25th birthday last month.   And it's a year of massive innovation.   We're sharing AI breakthroughs and new research on a weekly   basis. Now, I've worked in the tech industry  

for a long time, and I've never seen anything  like the speed of innovation at Google right now.   In the five months since Google I/O, we've rolled out some new   capabilities across so many Google products,  including Search, Workspace, Android and Bard.   As always, our focus is on making AI more helpful for   everyone, in a way that's both bold and responsible.  

Now, today, we're going to talk  about what that means for Pixel,   the only phone engineered by Google. We have so much to share with you.   Now, looking around the room here, I see a few people who   were at our first Pixel launch seven years ago.   And if you can remember, we shared our vision  for mobile computing, that the world was evolving   from mobile-first to AI-first. And we explained that Pixel is  

designed to bring hardware and software together, with AI at   the center, to deliver simple, fast and smart experiences.   Now, since then, Pixel has had so many  breakthrough features and technological firsts.   What I'm most proud of is how consistently we've tracked to   that early vision of Pixel as the AI-centric mobile computer.   We're still at it, and people are taking notice.   Pixel is the fastest-growing smartphone brand in our top   markets, and the only one that grew in units sold year over   year. Across Google's entire line of   Pixel phones, we're taking the approach that advanced hardware   needs amazing software and state-of-the-art AI to reach its   full potential. Now, at the same time,  

cutting-edge software and AI models only come  to life with the help of advanced hardware.   It all has to work closely together, and you can see that   approach across Google. We have custom-designed data   centers with Google's own Tensor Processing Units, so they can   run the latest AI models from Google DeepMind.   And it's true of Pixel phones, which pair custom Google silicon   with advanced software and Personal AI for a completely   unique smartphone experience. It's even true of Pixel Camera,   which uses Google AI models to go way beyond taking a good   photo.  

Pixel Camera makes it easy to get beautiful shots in nearly   impossible lighting conditions, track moving subjects, and get   colors and skin tones just right.   The computational photography in Pixel Camera is one of the   biggest mobile computing breakthroughs of the last   decade, and it's moved the entire industry forward.   The idea of AI-centric mobile computing was a radical concept   when Pixel first launched. But Pixel has demonstrated again   and again that it's the clearest path to helpful, simple,   personal smartphone experiences. Over the past few years, we've   applied our experience with AI in phones to a growing Pixel   portfolio of devices, like watches, tablets, foldables and   buds. And as Google AI gets better,  

those devices keep getting better, too.   For instance, this week, we're rolling out our biggest update   ever to Pixel Buds Pro with a number of AI-enabled features   and improvements. We're improving our Clear   Calling technology, which automatically reduces background   noise and enhances the voices on any phone call you receive.  

It doesn't matter if the person is calling you from a busy sidewalk   or in a noisy restaurant. You'll hear them even more   clearly. And it works on every call.   No need to press a button to turn it on each time.   Pixel Buds Pro are also among the first earbuds to use   Bluetooth Super Wide Band Speech.   It doubles the bandwidth to make voices sound more natural, and   when it's combined with Clear Calling, your phone calls sound   so much better. Just listen to the before and   after. [Muffled voice].  

>> Grabbing a coffee next to the office and I got a few more   meetings to get through and a quick errand.   Going to be ready to come out and join everybody for dinner.   [Clear voice]. So are you still thinking of   trying that place on 63rd? I've heard really great things   about it. [Cheers and Applause].   >>RICK OSTERLOH: You can really hear the difference.   Now, AI can make Pixel Buds Pro more convenient to use as well.  

When you're listening to music and need to have a quick chat   with a co-worker, or tell the barista your coffee order, just   start talking. Pixel Buds Pro will   automatically pause your audio and turn on transparency mode.   No more scrambling to pull the phone out  of your pocket or take out an earbud.   We're also reducing latency by up to 50 percent, which is great   news for the gamers out there. And there are a few more updates  

today that you can read about over on the Google Store.   Pixel Buds Pro aren't the only  devices getting a boost today.   With our new feature drop rolling out today, we're   bringing Dual Screen Interpreter Mode to Pixel Fold.  

You and whoever you're talking to can now have your own   personal translator across more than 45 languages.   And along with device updates, we're also tapping Google's AI   research to create richer user experiences in our apps and   services. For instance, we see so many   opportunities to bring AI into Google Home to make your smart   home more intuitive and helpful. It can be hard to keep track of  

what's going on at home. If you're on vacation or just   having a busy week, catching up can involve a lot of scrolling.   But generative AI can help with that by synthesizing all that   info into a more simple view. In the Google Home app, you'll   soon get a streamlined view of what happened recently, with a   quick and easy summary. If you're wondering about your   packages, you'll be able to ask about your home in natural language,   and quickly find the clip you're looking  for from your Nest Doorbell video history.   And it will be easy to take action on those insights, too.  

Just type a follow-up query and the Home app will be able to   generate a suggested automation for your devices.   We'll be rolling out these experimental features to   subscribers next year. And we've got a whole   lot more where that came from. Today, we're going to show you   the next evolution of Pixel wearables and phones that pull   together premium hardware, the most helpful software and   services from Google, and the very latest state-of-the-art AI   research. It's an action-packed show, so   let's get into it! Here's James to show you the   next generation of Pixel wearables.  

[Applause]. >>JAMES PARK: Hey, everyone.   Last year's Pixel Watch was the first device to combine the best   of Google's helpfulness with the health and fitness expertise of   Fitbit. And that was only the beginning.   I'd like to introduce you to Google Pixel Watch 2.   [Cheers and Applause]. It's completely upgraded, inside   and out, including major performance improvements.  

And you're getting Google and Fitbit experiences you won't   find on any other smartwatch, with the best of Fitbit health   and fitness tracking. We've upgraded the design and   materials as well. People loved the sleek water   droplet look of the first Pixel Watch.   We're upgrading our low-profile design for Pixel Watch 2 with   more durable coverglass, and a 100 percent recycled aluminum   housing that's lighter and more comfortable to wear when you're   at play and at rest. And we took the same care   with our new bands and watchfaces. Elegant metals are designed to  

impress. Our new sport design is more   breathable. And Pixel Watch 2 uses the same   simple band mechanism, so last year's Pixel Watch bands still   work great. And you'll see big upgrades  

across the entire Pixel Watch 2 experience.   The new quad core CPU gives you smooth, snappy performance.   And battery life has improved as well. Even with the display in  

always-on mode, you'll get 24 hours of use on a single charge.   And it charges faster, too, with a 12-hour charge in just 30   minutes. You're also getting the full   Wear OS 4 experience, with new apps like Gmail and Calendar.   Improvements to YouTube Music, Maps, and Google Assistant.   And more of the third-party apps you know and love.   With helpful apps and an all-day battery, Pixel Watch 2 is a   great companion on any adventure.  

And if you get into a bind, you now have Pixel's safety features   like medical information and emergency sharing right on your   watch. We're also bringing Safety Check   over from our Pixel phones to make sure you don't feel alone   on the trail or on your walk home. Just set a timer for when you   expect to arrive back home. If you can't check in after it  

expires, Safety Check will share your location with your   emergency contacts. And by the way, with Fitbit   Premium, you can use safety features like Safety Check and   Emergency Location Sharing, even if you haven't connected your   LTE-enabled Pixel Watch 2 to a network.   Now, I started Fitbit 16 years ago on the idea that a new   generation of wearable sensors could help people live healthier   lives. And it's a mission we're still  

on as a combined Fitbit and Google team. With Pixel Watch 2, we're   bringing together new AI algorithms, upgraded software,   and three new sensors to give you the most complete picture of   your everyday health. Pixel Watch's heart rate sensor   has been upgraded from a single-path sensor to a brand   new, fully redesigned, multi-path sensor.   We've 10x'd the number of optical channels that can   measure heart rate compared to the first-gen Pixel Watch.   So now your heart rate can be measured in multiple locations   on your wrist, for a more accurate reading.  

And combined with an improved ML algorithm, Pixel Watch 2   produces up to 40 percent more accurate heart rate tracking   during vigorous activities like HIIT, spinning and rowing.   And to further enhance your workout, new coaching features   keep you on pace and in your target heart rate zone, while   the more glanceable UI helps you nail your intervals.   The new skin temperature sensor delivers better insights into   your sleep and overall wellness. And the new continuous   electrodermal activity sensor, orcEDA sensor, powers Fitbit's   Body Response. It detects moments when you're   physically showing signs of stress, offers interventions to   destress, and then afterwards, prompts reflection over your day   and week to help you better manage your stress in the   future. Let's get a closer look at how   the best of Fitbit and the best of Google come together in Pixel   Watch 2. >> Hi, I'm Shauna Coxsey.  

I'm a climber, an Olympian. I'm also a founder, a president,   a trustee, a little bit of a neat freak, and a new mum.   [Baby squealing]. Hey, baby.  

My days get a little hectic at times.   Can mommy do some work now? No?   And the watch helps me understand when I need to take a   moment. I love how it tracks stress over   time as well, which makes managing it a lot easier.   The watch also helps me get stronger and set new goals.   This is hard. It's really useful to see  

everything quantified, analyzed and compared.   It's like a window into my potential.   I love getting outdoors with Frankie, so Safety Check is a   really comforting feature. If anything happens, the right  

people will know immediately. Even though my competition days   are over, I'm still driven. I still have big goals.   My husband Ned put this climb up about eight years ago, and I   tried it then and wasn’t able to do it.   And I've just not been able to get back here since then.   So now I'm finally able to. And I am making the time.   Yeah. The Olympics were not my peak.  

They were the end of a chapter. And not even my strongest, or   most successful chapter. That's still to come.   Yeah! Yes!   >> Go babe! >> Yes!   I wanna do it again. [Applause].  

>>JAMES PARK: Amazing. It's inspiring to hear a story   like Shauna's. Now, most of us aren't   Olympic-climber parents, but all of us could benefit from a more   complete picture of our health and wellness.   And that's reflected in the newly redesigned  Fitbit app, which launched last month.   The new app gives you a holistic view of your health and   wellness, with a focus on the metrics that matter most to you.   You'll see a new structure with three tabs in the streamlined   UI. The Today tab keeps you on track  

with your stats and goals. The Coach tab offers an easy way   to browse and filter workouts and mindfulness sessions.   The You tab helps you manage your personal details, goals,   achievements and connections with friends and family.   And looking ahead, we see so many possibilities to use AI to   bring you personalized coaching, dynamic workout recommendations,   and even more context and insight.   For example, the Fitbit app can use generative AI to surface   connections and correlations in your Fitbit data.   There's times when I think, hey, today's run felt harder than   usual. How does it compare with my  

previous runs? Is there something in my overall   data that could explain it? Fitbit answers my question by   analyzing the most relevant data. In this case, my latest run was   a 5K, so Fitbit surfaces and compares it to all my recent   runs with similar distance. Fitbit confirms my pace was a   bit slower, and offers up insights into why today's run   felt harder than usual. And it turns out the route I  

took was a bit hillier than normal.   It also points out a recent downward trend in my sleep   scores, and how, combined with hills, that might have had an   impact on my perceived exertion. Then on the spot, Fitbit   generates a chart specifically for my question with my latest   pace compared with similar runs, providing a dynamic view of my   fitness data that previously wasn't available.   With generative AI on your side, you'll have so many creative   ways to dig into your health and fitness data.   And you'll get some validation on days when those hill runs   just feel harder than usual. We'll be rolling out this  

capability early next year to trusted testers in the Fitbit app   as part of the new Fitbit Labs program with  priority access for Pixel phone owners.   And keep an eye out for more AI-powered Fitbit Labs   experiences to follow. With new sensors, longer battery   life, new features like Body Response, updated watch faces   and bands, and the updated Fitbit app, Pixel Watch 2   delivers a completely upgraded smartwatch experience.   And we can't wait for you to try it on.   Pixel Watch 2 comes in a Wi-Fi and an LTE version.   You can pre-order starting today, and they'll ship next   week. Every Pixel Watch 2 also comes  

with six months of Fitbit Premium, which unlocks a whole   new level of insights and content to help inform your   wellness journey. And for the fitness tracker fans   out there, check out the just-released Fitbit Charge 6.   It delivers the most accurate heart rate we've ever released   on a tracker, and it's the first tracker to include Google   essentials like Maps, Wallet, and YouTube Music controls.   Next up, here's Rick again to introduce the next evolution of   Pixel smartphones. [Applause].   >>RICK OSTERLOH: Pixel has been the first phone to deliver so   many innovations, thanks to the tight integration with Google's   AI research. The first phone to truly see in   the dark. The first phone to answer the  

phone for you. The first phone to unblur your   photos. The first phone with car crash   detection. The first phone to protect your   browsing with a built-in VPN at no extra cost.  

And we have a whole new set of firsts to show you today.   I'm excited to introduce you to the next evolution of AI in your   hand. Google Pixel 8 Pro and Google   Pixel 8. [Cheers and Applause].   Our latest phones bring together so many technologies from across   Google. They're the first phones to use  

our latest Google Tensor chip, and they include the very best   Android experience, first of their kind camera experiences,   and the latest AI advancements from Google.   From the inside out, Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are built to deliver the help   you need in a way that only Google can. And as you can see, they're   absolutely stunning. Here's Claude to take you   through all of the gorgeous design details.  

[Applause]. >>CLAUDE ZELLWEGER: Pixel 8 and   Pixel 8 Pro are the most beautiful phones we've ever   made. They're the centerpiece of   Google's growing Pixel portfolio, and you can see how   well they're complemented by the rest of the family.   Every Pixel device, from the phone in your hands, to the   watch on your wrist, to the buds in your ear, and to the tablet in   your home, is designed to fit into your life seamlessly,   to provide a helpful fluid experience, and  to reflect the human, optimistic and daring   design that Pixel is used for. Instead of angular corners and   edges, Pixel devices replicate that calming feeling of picking   up a smooth piece of sea glass. Pixel 8 is an evolution of the   iconic Pixel design, with more fluid contours, and a smaller   size that feels so natural to hold.  

Pixel 8 Pro introduces new, considered design elements into the portfolio.   We're using a soft, silky, matte glass finish to  contrast with the high-polished camera bar and   highlight our powerful new camera system. And we bring that same   thoughtfulness to Pixel's color palette, which continues to   evolve with natural and inviting hues.   Our Porcelain shade on Pixel 8 Pro is accented by a soft, gold   trim, for a luxurious ceramic look.  

And our new Bay blue color is both energetic and hopeful.   We're even updating Pixel Buds Pro today with new colors to go   with our new phones, including Bay blue and Porcelain.   As a company, we know that device manufacturing carries a   heavy responsibility, and we take that responsibility   seriously. We continue to design all of our  

products with sustainability in mind, from the very beginning.   We're working towards Google's commitment of net zero emissions   by 2030, by reimagining the materials that go into our   products, how we manufacture and how we distribute them.   And that's why we're now on our fourth generation  of Pixel phones that use recycled aluminum.   In fact, every device you see today uses repurposed materials,   from the 100 percent recycled aluminum enclosures on Pixel   phones, to our fabric watch bands.  

And Pixel 8 packaging is completely free of plastic.   Another aspect of sustainability is longevity.   Accidents happen, and we're working to  make Pixel phones easier to repair.  

We've partnered with iFixit to offer parts, tools and repair   guides directly to DIYers so that it's easier than ever to   repair your own display, your battery or your camera.   Now, one of the most important design elements on Pixel 8's design is the   surface that you look at the most, the display. Your phone should show you the   world in the way that it actually appears in real life.   So we've been working on a new display offering, which we're   calling the Actua display. You'll see it for the first time   on Pixel 8. The 6.2-inch Actua display on  

Pixel 8 is 42 percent brighter than on Pixel 7, and it gives   you ultra, real-world clarity for your videos, your games,   your photos and everything else that you do on your phone.   And Pixel 8 pro takes a real-world display technology to   the next level with our new super Actua display. The 6.7 inch display is even   more immersive, and it's our brightest display yet, with a   stunning peak brightness of 2400 nits and a variable refresh rate   that intelligently adjusts from 1 to 120 hertz.   Even in direct sunlight, you'll love how true to life your ultra   HDR images look. On the back of Pixel 8 Pro, you  

can see that we've added a new temperature sensor.   It's a convenient and quick way to check the temp on a pan or to   make sure that the milk in your baby's bottle is just the right   temperature. We've submitted an application   to the FDA so that you can also use our thermometer app to take   your own temperature, which can be saved to the Fitbit app in   the future. Along with beautiful updates to  

the body, the display, the finishes, materials and colors,   Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are getting some big upgrades on the   inside. Here's Monika to tell us about   the next generation of Google Tensor.   [Cheers and Applause]. >>MONIKA GUPTA: Pixel 8's   helpful AI experiences start right in the silicon.   Let me introduce you to the new Google Tensor G3.   It's our latest mobile SoC, designed specifically to bring   Google's AI breakthroughs directly to Pixel users, and   show the world what's possible. In our new Tensor G3 chip, every  

major subsystem has been upgraded.   It includes the latest generation of ARM CPUs, an   upgraded GPU, new ISP and imaging DSP, and, of course, the   TPU, our on-device AI engine that we've custom designed to   run Google's AI models efficiently.   I want to show you what those models look like at an on-device   level, and how Tensor continues to push the boundaries when it   comes to AI innovations in mobile computing.  

Let's start with the growth of machine learning models in   Pixel. Compared to the first   generation of Tensor on Pixel 6, the new Pixel 8 runs more than   twice as many machine learning models on-device.   That's a massive jump in a short time, and it means Pixel's   machine learning isn't just for speech and photos anymore, ML   models now enhance just about every aspect of Pixel's user   experience. And the models themselves are  

getting more sophisticated, too! The heaviest model on Pixel 8 is   ten times more complex compared to Pixel 6.   Tensor G3 is so efficient, not only does it run more ML models   more complex models, but in many  cases, it runs them concurrently.   Which is why Pixel can deliver so many unbelievably helpful   experiences that no other phone can.   Like amazing new Pixel Camera capabilities, which you'll see   in just a bit. But first, let's talk about   Pixel 8's new speech enhancements. Pixel's Speech and Natural   Language Understanding continue to lead the industry, with   on-device accuracy that rivals the machine learning in our data   centers. You can already use Pixel to  

type, edit and send messages with your voice.   Now Pixel 8 even knows what language you're speaking, and   can switch back and forth with as you talk in multiple   languages. No other phone lets you do that.   Pixel 8 is also our first phone to use the same text-to-speech   model that Google uses in our data centers.  

So I can just long-press on the power button, and Pixel 8 will   read Web pages out loud for me, This is super useful when I want   to listen to articles while walking my dog, Berkeley.   Let's take a listen. >> Six must-try tips for taking   incredible pet photos with your Pixel, ultrawide, macro,   portrait.   Here's how to use your Pixel's camera and photo tools to get   the best pet photos. >>MONIKA GUPTA: The voice sounds  

more natural, and I can fast forward or modify the speed.   I can even ask my Pixel to read the pages in a different   language. And Google Speech models are   also behind Pixel Call Assist, a suite of features that just make   your phone calls and life easier.  

Like helping you navigate a phone tree, and automatically   removing background noise from your calls with Clear Calling.   And saving you from calls you don't want with Call Screen.   Now, with improved AI, the next generation of Call Screen is   helping Pixel users receive 50 percent fewer spam calls on   average. It silently answers calls from  

unknown numbers, with a new, more natural speaking voice, and   it's smart enough to separate the calls you really want from   the calls you really don't. Here's what's happening behind   the screens. [Assistant]: Hi.   I'm a Google virtual calling assistant recording this call on   behalf of the person you're trying to reach.   Can you say what you're calling   about? [Caller]: Hi.   You've won an all-expense paid trip to the Caribbean.  

Press 8 to claim your prize now. [Assistant]: Unfortunately, the   person you're calling cannot take your call right now.   Have a nice day. [Applause].   >>MONIKA GUPTA: You can see why Pixel users love this feature.   But some calls about travel are actually important.  

[Caller]: Hi. This is Kristen from Anywhere   Airlines. [Assistant]: Before I try to   connect you, could you please give a quick description of why   you're calling? [Caller]: We need to make some   changes to your flight reservation.   I'm calling to discuss ticketing   options. [Assistant]: Okay.   Let me try to get the person you're trying to reach on the   line. [Applause].   >>MONIKA GUPTA: And then there are calls that require just a   moment of your attention. Call Screen will soon offer  

Contextual Replies so you can respond in a tap, without even   taking the call. No more playing phone tag with   your doctor's office just to confirm an appointment.   This next generation of Auto Call Screen will even work on   Pixel Watch when connected to a Tensor-enabled Pixel phone.   It will come to Pixel Watch and Pixel Watch 2 in a feature drop   later this year. Those are just a few   improvements coming to Pixel 8 with Tensor G3.  

And with each new generation  of Tensor, we're pushing the   boundaries of on-device AI and redefining  state-of-the-art for mobile computing.   You'll see big jumps across practically every major user   experience on Pixel 8, including the camera.   Here's Shenaz to take us through all the firsts coming to the   fully upgraded Pixel 8 Camera. [Cheers and Applause].  

[Cheers and Applause]. >>SHENAZ ZACK: We have so much   exciting new camera magic to share with you today, upgraded   hardware, break-through features, new ways to work with   motion and sound, and completely new image capabilities.   The incredible Pixel 8 camera combines powerful AI and Tensor   G3 with a fully upgraded ultrawide and a new wide camera   that's capable of producing 2X optical quality images with even   better low-light performance. And the biggest leap forward in   Pixel camera this year is video. The video capabilities in Pixel  

8 represent years of R & D across Tensor, AI and software.   Combine that work with the upgraded main sensor, and you'll   see vast improvements in low-light video performance,   dynamic range and shadow noise. And we are continuing to expand   our image equity efforts with Real Tone, so your videos and   photos accurately portray the wide range of human skin tones.  

Along with Pixel's best-ever skin tone accuracy in your   videos, you will see improved mixed lighting performance and   much faster auto focus in low light.   So no matter what you're creating with Pixel camera,   everyone will look more like their beautiful selves.   Now, as every creator knows, visuals are only half of the   equation when it comes to great video clips, so we are   pioneering new computational audio capabilities, with a   first-of-its-kind feature called Audio Magic Eraser.  

It lets you reduce distracting sounds in your videos using   Tensor G3 and advanced machine learning models, and it's easy   enough that anybody can do it. Audio Magic Eraser identifies   different sounds in your video, and sorts them in to distinct   layers that you can control. [Baby babbling with dog barking   in background]. [Baby babbling without dog   >>SHENAZ ZACK: So new, with a few taps, your  baby's video sounds just the way you want.   barking in background]. [Cheers and Applause].  

Alongside breakthrough video capabilities, Pixel 8 introduces   a whole set of new features that makes it easier than ever to get   great photos, even in the trickiest conditions.   Like when you're trying to take the group photo over and over   and over again, only to find somebody's always blinking or   rolling their eyes. Group photos are tough, but   Pixel gives you the option to make them easier with the new   Best Take feature in Google Photos.   Best Take uses a series of photos taken closer together   to help you create the shot you want, so you can  choose what you think is the best expression --   [Cheers and Applause]. -- for everyone in the photo.  

Let's take a look. >> So I thought this would be a   perfect place to show you this awesome feature on the new Pixel   8 phone. >> Oh, wow.   >> That takes bad group photos and turns them in to perfect   group photos. >> Amazing.  

I have endured a lifetime of other people ruining my group   shots. Hey!   How would you two like a picture with a hot Hollywood celebrity?   >> 3-2-1! All right.   Do you want to check this out? >> Yeah, let's do it.  

>> It's called Best Take, and what you can do is grab   different expressions and combine them into one so that   everyone looks good. >> Oh, my gosh!   >> Oh! >> All three of us.   >> Wait! We look so good!   >> Can I take your photo? Say cheese, but not you, because   you're lactose intolerant. >> He actually is!   >> No way! Ice cream!   Yeah! Oh, but the ice cream tastes   like dirty socks! What!   And who is the designated photo ruiner in the group?   Oh, that was quick. But look at that.   Hard to find a bad photo of you, but we did.   >> Oh, my goodness. >> He switched your whole face  

out. >> Whoa!   >> And now you guys look like the cast of a good '90s sitcom.   Now, kids, I need you to look really upset that it's bedtime.   You're so mad. And parents, you're really   happy that it's bedtime. Okay?   I just made your Christmas card right here.  

Before we go, there is one last photo we need to get.   Us! >> Yes!   [Cheers and Applause]. >>SHENAZ ZACK: Best Take lets   you use the photos you did take to get the photo you thought you   took.   Of course, sometimes you might want to use your imagination to   create something new. As we announced at I/O, Magic  

Editor in Google Photos lets you use generative AI to re-imagine   your photos. Just tap or circle the object   you want to edit, drag to reposition your subject, pinch   to resize them or use one-tap  presets to make the background pop.   It's an intuitive new way to edit so you are in control of   your images. Whether you want to better   capture the moment or add your own creative touch.  

Pixel camera continues to  get more accessible, too.   To help people with vision impairment get the perfect   photo, Guided Frame now works both on the front and the rear   camera, and it recognizes more than just faces, like your dog,   or your dinner, and even documents.   Pixel 8 re-imagines what you can do with a smartphone camera,   with Best Take, generative AI and Magic Editor, best-in-class   video and Audio Magic Eraser. That's a whole lot of firsts, and new ways   to get creative with your videos and images. Take a look.   [Wind blowing in background]. >> Will you marry me?   >> Agh! >> Woo-hoo!   >> Wow. >> Oh!  

[Cheers and Applause]. >>SHENAZ ZACK: Pixel 8's camera   is truly magical, but you know, some people won't be satisfied   with anything but our absolute best camera in a smartphone, and   you'll get it with Pixel 8 Pro, which has everything you just   saw in Pixel 8, and much more. For people who want the most   powerful camera system. Every camera on Pixel 8 Pro is  

upgraded. The triple rear pro camera   system gets a new main sensor with better low-light   performance, a bigger ultrawide lens with even better Macro   Focus, an upgraded telephoto that can capture 56 percent more   light and take photos with 10X optical quality.   And we've added auto focus on the front-facing camera so you   can take the best Pixel selfies ever.   Now, when you combine the upgraded hardware and advanced   Google AI, it makes it easy for everyone to get a   picture-perfect Pixel photo in any lighting condition.   We are also introducing new pro controls on Pixel 8 Pro for   photographers who want total creative control over the   camera. You can adjust settings like ISO  

sensitivity, shutter speed, lens selection and focus.   You can also get high resolution, 50 megapixel images   from across the zoom range in both JPEG and RAW, and when you   open those RAW images in Adobe Light Room, you'll see they   retain our signature HDR+ adjustments.   We gave our Pixel creator lab photographers early access to   Pro Controls and you can see the range of possibilities, like   gorgeous studio photography, dreamy landscapes, and full   control over long exposures. If you know your way around a  

camera or want to experiment and learn, Pro Controls unlocks a   truly pro level camera experience.   Pixel 8 Pro's combination of upgraded cameras, Tensor G3 and   computational audio means your videos will be sharper, more   vibrant and sound better than ever.   Video from Pixel 8 Pro is gorgeous.   It's the best video quality ever on a Pixel, but we're going even   further to show what's possible with computational video.   Introducing a new form of video post-processing called Video   Boost. It totally changes the game.   Look at how it compares to a different phone we recently   picked up. You can see the skin tone is  

life-like and properly balanced while the mountains and skies   have full dynamic range. The video has the vivid color   and detail that Pixel photos are known for. And that's because every frame   of this 4K video has gone through our HDR+ image pipeline.   For a one-minute video at 30 frames per second, that's the   same as processing 1800 photos. Video Boost makes it possible by  

pairing the incredible camera hardware and the Tensor in your   Pixel with our powerful data centers.   Sounds difficult, but it couldn't be simpler for you.   Record a Pixel 8 Pro video with Video Boost enabled and you'll   have a high-quality version of it right away.   Meanwhile, your video uploads to the cloud where Google's   computational photography models, like HDR+, are applied   to your entire video. Every. Single. Time.   And when it's ready, the boosted video automatically appears in   your Google photos library. And when you use Video Boost in  

low light, it automatically enables Night Sight video for   the first time on Pixel. Check out what one of our   favorite photographers was able to do with Night Sight video.   [Cheers and Applause]. >>SHENAZ ZACK: Looks stunning,   right? By subtly enhancing the light in   the scene, you're getting truer colors, more details in the   buildings, clearer dynamic range in the colorful lights that make   up the cityscape. Even the fine details in the   small alleyways. It looks like a city at night.   With Video Boost on Pixel 8 Pro, you're getting the best   low-light video of any smart phone.  

Video Boost is coming to Pixel 8 Pro in a feature drop in   December, and you're going to love it.   It perfectly demonstrates what sets Pixel really apart as a smartphone.   You have powerful, on-device processing with Tensor G3,   coming together with Google's state-of-the-art research and   machine learning and AI. And then the processing in your   video is augmented by one of the  world's most powerful cloud computers.   It is a unique combined approach where the data center acts as a   virtual component of your Pixel. And it makes seemingly  

impossible tasks possible in a way that only Google can.   And Video Boost isn't the only feature that draws on Google's   cutting-edge data center models. We've got some big changes   coming to Google Assistant, thanks to our advances in   generative AI, and here's Sissie to give you a first look!   [Cheers and Applause]. >>SISSIE HSIAO: Seven years ago,  

we introduced Google Assistant on the first Pixel phone and   since then, we have helped hundreds of millions of users   across all different devices get things done at home and on the   go. Today, I want to show you how   Google is changing how we deliver helpful experiences to   people all over the world. And the key here is our   generative AI research. Bringing the latest models to  

the mobile device that's always with you opens up so many new   possibilities. Just a few months ago, we   launched Bard as an early experiment.   It's a conversational AI tool that lets you collaborate   directly with our most capable models.   Bard can help you brainstorm ideas for a game night with   friends. Get some creative inspiration   for a new project at work. Pick up a few tips for home  

repairs, or learn a new skill. Since Bard's launch, we've been   learning and iterating super fast to make sure Bard is   helpful and accessible to people everywhere.   In fact, people are using it in over 40 languages across over   220 countries and territories. We just recently launched new  

extensions that make it possible for Bard to collaborate with   apps like YouTube and Maps, and even your own content from Docs   and Gmail. You can find, summarize and   answer questions across your personal content, all in one   place. Bard's language understanding,   complex reasoning and generative capabilities have fueled our   excitement in realizing our vision for Google Assistant.   While Assistant is great at handling quick tasks like   setting timers, giving weather updates, and making quick calls,   there is so much more that we've always  envisioned a deeply capable personal   assistant should be able to do. But the technology to deliver it   didn't exist, until now. Today, I'm excited to share an  

early peek as something we've been working on. We call it Assistant with Bard,   and it brings the best of both experiences right to your phone.   It's a step towards our vision to deliver the world's most   helpful personal assistant. Assistant with Bard combines  

personalized help with reasoning and generative capabilities, so   it can hear, it can speak, it can see, and it can even take   actions that help you out. Right on the device you always   have with you. This is an experiment we're   super excited about. Let me show you some examples of   what it will be able to do. A great assistant should help   you make sense of your day, and stay on top of what's important.  

Open Assistant with Bard and say, "Catch me up  on any important E-mails I missed this week."   And you'll get a rundown of what's in your inbox.   Three important E-mails including a party invite.  

Assistant with Bard can even dig up the details for you.   "Where is Grayson's party?" It can spot that the party is   across the river in Brooklyn. "How long will it take to get   there?" And just like that you have   quick directions from Google Maps.   And, of course, you can still use the classic Assistant   features. "Text Jenny, do you want to ride   with me to Grayson's party?" You can see how Assistant with   Bard pulls together the information you need from   different apps and services, so you can get stuff done so much   faster. So say you're renting a house in Los  

Angeles with some friends for the weekend. Check out how specific you can   be. "Make me a grocery list for the   weekend, for ten people, go heavy on the snacks, and we'll   probably want a smoothie, so recommend  and include ingredients for that."   Just imagine how much time it would take to make this on your   own. And with a quick tap, you can   move it into a doc and share with your friends so you can   coordinate. It took less than a minute to  

create. From here, you can ask for   recommendations on things to see, build a weekend itinerary,   discover the best spots to soak in the views, and anything else   you need to make planning and prep a breeze.   Now say you all decide to go on a hike with  your dog, but you reach a fork in the trail.  

Flip a coin? Nope.   Simply snap a photo of the trail marker and ask, "What path do   you recommend for a group and my small dog?"   And just like that, you know that the North Trail is the best   one for your dog's little legs. But first, you should snap a   photo of Baxter. The perfect photo needs a   perfect caption, and Assistant with Bard can be your creative   partner here. So check this out.   You can pop it over your photo and use it as the visual cue.   So Assistant with Bard can see what's on your screen,   understand the context, and help you with what you need.  

"Create a cute social caption for Baxter."   Quick and easy, and you're back to enjoying your hike.   This conversational overlay is a completely new way to interact   with your phone, and lets Assistant with Bard meet you   wherever you are. We're so excited about what's   possible when we bring our most helpful generative AI   capabilities to one of the most assistive experiences in the   world. Assistant with Bard is the   coordinator who can help you  take something off your plate.   The planner with useful travel tips.  

The creative partner you turn to for inspiration.   And so much more. We hope it changes how you get   things done and bring your ideas to life, like a true Assistant.   We are rolling out Assistant with Bard to select testers   shortly, and we'll be expanding availability as an opt-in   experience in the next few months.   So for Pixel 8 users, keep an eye out for how to try it for   yourself. And now, back to Rick for a few  

final Pixel highlights. [Cheers and Applause].   >>RICK OSTERLOH: You've heard about a lot of incredible   experiences and transformational new technologies we're bringing   to Pixel, thanks to Google's deep investments in AI.   And this is just the beginning. Google's AI research teams are   changing everything in this space with generative AI   foundation models. It's a paradigm shift for  

computing. And it leads to more contextual,   more personalized and more powerful help.   For instance, proofread in Gboard now takes advantage of   generative large language models in the cloud, so it can go way   beyond fixing typos. It offers help with your  

spelling, grammar and punctuation errors in a single   tap. As another example, Pixel's   getting better at understanding the language in content, like   Web pages. Here's a long article about   things to do around Pier 57. Just tap "summarize," and your   Pixel will generate a quick overview for you.  

Google's generative AI models can help you do more, even on   your busiest days. Now imagine a future where   generative AI runs right on the phones we have with us throughout the day.   Pixel could be even more personalized, responsive and   always ready to help. So here's the news.   We engineered Pixel 8 Pro to be the first phone to run Google's   foundation models directly on the device.   We've worked closely with research teams across Google to   take advantage of their most advanced foundation  models and to distill them into a version   efficient enough to run on our flagship Pixel. And even those distilled  

on-device generative AI models are really complex.   Pixel 8 Pro can run generative AI with up to 150 times more   computations than the largest ML model on Pixel 7.   And this leads directly to improved experiences on Pixel 8   Pro. Like a better Magic Eraser,   which is super useful for removing distractions from your   images. With on-device generative AI,   you can now remove large objects and people without   smudging your photo. Instead of blending the   surrounding pixels, the improved Magic Eraser generates   completely new pixels to fill in the spaces left behind by cars,   people or anything else you don't want in your shot.  

So you get a higher-quality image that looks just the way   you want it to. Now, you'll get the upgraded   Magic Eraser right away on Pixel 8 Pro.   And we're working hard on lots more generative AI features that   are coming to Pixel over the next few months.  

For instance, Recorder's getting even more helpful with on-device   summarizations. Recorder's already an incredible   way to capture and make sense of audio, with accurate, live   transcriptions and powerful search running right on the phone.   With on-device generative AI in Pixel 8 Pro, you'll be able to   get concise summaries of your recordings that quickly recap   the highlights from a recorded meeting or presentation.   In the coming months, Pixel 8 Pro's on-device LLM will also   power smart replies in Gboard. You'll see better conversational   awareness, so it can generate higher-quality reply   suggestions. And along with speech  

and language, Pixel has always pushed the  boundaries of what's possible with imaging.   In a major breakthrough for mobile computing, Pixel 8 Pro   will be the first smartphone to have a custom generative AI   image model on device. Our newest feature building on   this will be Zoom Enhance. When you pinch in, Zoom Enhance   can intelligently sharpen and enhance the details of your   images so you can get closer than  ever, even when you forget to zoom.  

It's an incredible new application of generative AI,   opening up a range of possibilities for framing and   editing your images. So the kind of zoom enhancement   you used to see in science fiction is right in the phone in your hand.   So these are just a few of the early  applications of on-device foundation   models we can run on Tensor G3. And they aren't off in some  

distant future. Pixel 8 Pro ships with the   updated Magic Eraser, and the others will be available in our upcoming   feature drops starting in December. And for years to come, your   Pixel 8 Pro will bring you the latest on-device generative AI   innovation from Google, as we roll out new features.  

We're so excited about the future of the Pixel Portfolio.   Thanks for letting us share our vision with you today.   You'll find all these new products available  for pre-order right now in the Google Store.   Pixel 8 comes with an unbelievable camera for both   photos and videos, a brilliant Actua display, and the powerful   Tensor G3 chip for helpful features like Best Take and the   new Call Screen. And Pixel 8 is available for   pre-order today with some great offers. It comes in three colors, and  

it's on shelves next week. Pixel 8 Pro is a true flagship   phone with never-before-seen features and design elements.   You're getting Super Actua, the best Pixel display ever,   upgraded performance, enhanced connectivity, faster charging speeds.   It's the first Pixel with a temperature sensor.   You get a massive upgrade in camera sensors and lenses, pro   controls for experienced photographers, industry-leading   video, thanks to Video Boost, and it's the first phone   engineered and built for the generative AI era, with new   breakthrough AI features coming later this year, and so many   more in the future. Pixel 8 Pro is available for  

pre-order now, in a fresh range of colors, and it will be on   shelves with Pixel 8 next week. Pixel 8 and 8 Pro are also the   first phones to ship with Android 14, bringing exciting   new capabilities like generative AI wallpapers, more customizable   lock screens, monochrome theming, ultra HDR, and more.   It's such an exciting time for the Pixel family.  

Our vision of AI centric mobile computing as guided us for the past   seven years, and as I say every year, it  feels like we're just getting started.   We're hoping your Pixel 8 is just getting started, too, and   that it will be with you through years of AI advances and breakthroughs.   And that's why, for the first time, Google is expanding Pixel   support to seven years -- [Cheers and Applause].  

Seven years of OS upgrades, security  updates, feature drops and AI innovations.   That means your Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro  will be supported all the way to 2030.   [Cheers and Applause]. No major smartphone brand offers this   committed level of support and longevity. Well, that's our show for today.   There's a lot more to these  new products and services.   You can get all the details right now on the  Google Store, and we'd also love to see you   in our Google Store locations here in New York,  and at our newest Store at our headquarters in   Mountain View, which opens next week. Thanks so much for joining us.  

We'll see you all again very soon. [Cheers and Applause].
