Pixel Fold

Google's first foldable smartphone, the Pixel Fold, is scheduled to go on sale in late June. Its design is comparable to the Galaxy Z Fold because it converts from a smartphone to a tablet when opened. When fully opened, the Pixel Fold's display is 7.6 inches and has a resolution of 2208 x 1840 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The Pixel Fold sports a 5.8-inch display with a resolution of 2092 x 1080 when it is folded. With a 4,821mAh battery and the most recent Google Tensor chip, it is powered.

A 180-degree hinge mechanism at the borders, a fingerprint scanner integrated into the power button, facial recognition, IPX8 water resistance, and other features are also available. The Pixel Fold is currently up for preorder, and it costs $1,800.

Priced at $499, the Pixel Tablet comes with a Charging Speaker Dock that transforms it into a smart home management hub. With a price of $499, the Pixel 7a is a more affordable smartphone than the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.

Google Maps

A new version of Maps' Immersive View feature will combine aerial photos and Street View with AI to create a visual representation of the entire planet for use in route planning. It will display bike lanes, sidewalks, intersections and parking for the duration of a trip as well as details on daily weather changes. In the upcoming months, the functionality will launch in a few cities, including San Francisco, Tokyo, LA, London, and New York.

Google Photos

Magic Editor is capable of performing intricate automatic adjustments, such as adjusting particular areas of an image to remove undesirable objects, altering composition by moving the subject, and updating features like the sky.

AI to make its way to search

Magic Editor has the ability to add additional material while moving an image, which alters how cropping and scaling operate. This feature will probably soon be available on devices other than Pixel phones. In the midst of a fresh arms race over the technology in Silicon Valley, Google is also making progress with its plans to integrate AI conversation features into its core search engine. [caption id="attachment_171147" align="aligncenter" width="1600"]google-io-ai-search Image credit : Search Engine Journal[/caption] The business said that it is launching Google Search, the next generation of which will employ an AI-powered chatbot to respond to inquiries "you never thought Search could answer" and to assist users in finding the information they need more quickly than ever. The appearance and feel of Google Search results will have changed significantly as a result of the upgrade. Users will automatically receive a pop-up an AI-generated response in addition to presenting conventional results when they submit a question into the primary search box.

Image Context

Google plans to provide additional information to the photographs returned by Google Search in order to counter "deep fake" images produced by AI. Images will display context, such as the first location a picture appeared online and the dates when it and related images were originally indexed by Google. By selecting the three dots on an image in the Google Images search results, swiping up on an image in the Google app, or conducting a Google Lens search using an image, users can get image metadata.
