During the course of the Google Pixel launch event in San Francisco on Tuesday, Google announced a new 4K version of its hugely popular Chromecast streaming dongle. The new version of Chromecast is called 'Chromecast Ultra.'
In announcing the new Chromecast Ultra streaming device, Google also disclosed its pricing and availability details. The device will become available for purchase in 15 countries across the world in November; and will be priced at $69 in the US.
In a Monday report, Reuters has revealed that the European Commission (EC) has granted another extension to US tech giant for filing its response to charges related to the misuse of the dominance of its Android mobile platform.
According to the antitrust charges, Google has been trying to shut out competition in Europe by misusing its dominant hold of its popular Android mobile operating system. The company has allegedly been promoting its own products and services over those offered by its rivals.
According to some recent reports and rumors, tech biggie Google may announce its Android-Chrome OS merger at the company's product launch event scheduled to be held on October 4.
Though the forthcoming event is expected to mark the unveiling of Google's two new handsets - likely to be called Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones - as well as the Google W-Fi router, among other hardware, recent reports have hinted that the spotlight at the event will probably be on software, not hardware.
According to an Android Police report, tech giant Google is apparently getting ready to launch a new Wi-Fi router - likely to be dubbed 'Google Wi-Fi' - next month, at an event in San Francisco.
The new Google Wi-Fi home router product being prepared by Google will reportedly be one of the products which the bigwig tech company will announce at its multi-device release event scheduled to be held on October 4, 2016.
Tech giant Google is expected to unveil its two next-generation Android-powered smartphones at an October 4 event, but rumors about the forthcoming handsets have been making rounds on the Internet for quite some time now.
According to the rumors, Google's 2016 smartphones are manufactured by Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC; and will come with 'Pixel' branding in place of the 'Nexus' branding which Google has been using thus far for its handsets.
In a move which indicates that Google is venturing into ride-sharing service Uber's territory, the bigwig tech company has plans underway to introduce its own ride-sharing service in San Francisco.
According to the information disclosed by an unidentified source familiar with the proceedings at Google, the ride-sharing service which the company plans to launch in San Francisco would basically give passengers the ability to join carpools at a bargain price.
