Google will present the Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro and the Pixel Watch on Thursday, October 6, 2022. Here’s how to follow the live Google conference.
Tech’s crazy comeback continues with a bang. After the presentation of the new iPhone 14 and 14 Pro, Xiaomi 12T and 12T Pro, it is up to Google to come out of the woods with smartphones and connected watches. The Mountain View company is preparing to present the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro as well as the long-awaited Pixel Watch. We also expect the news of Android 13, but also of the Pixel tablet scheduled for next year.
The most secure smartphones
Google claims that thanks to its new Titan M2 chip, the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro are the most protected phones on the market. The company also announced five years of security updates.
The company also announced a new standard, Protected Computing. Three points make it possible to define it: The data footprint is small, the data will not be linked to you and promote end-to-end encryption.
Google One will also integrate a VPN at no extra cost.
The tablet is finished
We found the finish of the Pixel tablet and its interface to be better.
That’s it, the Pixel Watch presents itself from many angles. We’ve seen a lot of leaks around the watch so far, but it looks like the same watch all the time, with the same silicone strap. We discovered that other bracelets and finishes are in the game.
The talk started with an explanation of the design of the Pixel, which gives the impression that all new Google devices belong to the same brand.
The focus is clear on the fluidity, comfort when taking the device from the bag, on the wrist, finishes, a very textured appearance.
The program is here
The full conference program is here in this image.
We saw pieces of the Pixel Watch, Pixel 7. But for now, the conference is mainly focused on a reminder of the previous episodes: Pixel 6 and 6a, successes from Google’s point of view.
Welcome to what Google does
The conference is on! Google directly presses its strong point: making the experience personal. We also discussed the automatic blocking of SPAM in Google Messages, or Google Translation, services that are more important, including outside the Google ecosystem.
The entire ecosystem is presented
And it started strong with a very quick presentation of the entire ecosystem, Pixel 7, Pixel Watch, Pixel Buds Pro 2 and Pixel tablet in a short scripted sequence.
And we left! The clock is gone on Google Live, soon.
10 more minutes
Ten minutes before the conference, we can already see the images of the products with the top of the line, of course, the Pixel 7 Pro.
The wait was over half an hour
Make yourself comfortable, it starts in 30 minutes!
What time is the Made by Google conference?

What to expect from Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro and other announced products
As we said, the Mountain View company will unveil the new Pixel 7 and 7 Pro. At least what remains to be revealed, because leaks are important in these products. Data sheets, new features such as Zoom Super Res, the design was even presented by Google, in a video in the form of an attempt to calm the game of leaks, to no avail.
Pixel Watch: the Arlesian is finally out of the woods
The same goes for the Pixel Watch, whose full technical sheet is available. Keep in mind that this is a new range, which has been rumored since the launch of Wear OS in 2014.
The watch connected to Google should draw on the acquisition of Fitbit which was run by Google a few years ago. The drops also feature a bold design, with a rotating crown and a domed look. Google needs to succeed with its copy if it wants to convince other manufacturers to make the switch to Wear OS.
Pixel Tablet: the return of Google
Another point expected during the conference, we hope to hear the news of another new Pixel range, the first Pixel tablet. As a reminder, Google has already teased its outlines during its Google I/O 2022. The product is expected in 2023.
While a change in tablets clearly announces itself in 2021 and 2022, now is the time or never for Google to create a real alternative to the iPad. Android tablets, with the possible exception of Samsung’s Tab S8, remain for now a less developed version of the tablet experience.
But also… a Pixel Ultra? A Pixel NotePad?
During the conference, Google is also expected to discuss new features specific to Android 13. We can also hope for a surprise, although given the number of leaks leading up to the conference, this remains unlikely .
Among the leaks that seem to us the most exciting, we think of the Pixel Ultra, the Pixel mini or the foldable Pixel, also called the Pixel NotePad.
