Google Pixel 3: what's coming next?

  Google Pixel 3: what's coming next? The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are only just making their way out to buyers, so it seems like the perfect time to consider what Google might be planning for 2018 - a Pixel 3 and a Pixel 3 XL? Despite some screen issues, the verdict seems to be that the 2017 Pixels were a solid step forward from the 2016 Pixels, which themselves were pretty decent smartphones. Google knows it needs to keep innovating with the likes of Apple and Samsung around, though.

Right now, the feature seems to work best with smartphones. While I get results for other smartphone comparisons like “OnePlus 5 vs Galaxy S8,” I don’t see anything if I type “Surface Pro vs MacBook Pro” and get a comparison, for instance.

The comparison currently shows a few rows of basic specs, which you can expand by tapping on the downward arrow for an extensive list of features.

The feature seems to have rolled out to most users by now, with several members of the TNW team showing the comparison.

It’s a small touch, but a genuine time saver when you want to quickly look up device specs (something I do several times a day). Here’s hoping it expands to other devices soon.

Google Assistant can now broadcast messages through your Google Home devices .
Last month, Google announced that users with Google Assistant would be able to broadcast messages via Google Home devices, and now that time is here. You can use Assistant on your smartphone to send messages to all Assistant-enabled speakers within your home, and with certain commands, like announcing it’s time for dinner, the Assistant will ring a dinner bell on every speaker. You don’t even have to be home to broadcast; the feature will work from anywhere with a cell connection, which is a nice touch.
