Google Reveals that Why Pixel 2 Phones donot have Headphone Jacks

That was the main goal of the recent Google event where chief executive officer Sundar Pichai once again reiterated Google AI's first approach to all development streams.

THE Pixel 2 is Google's next generation phone and from what I saw during their event last October 4, it was one heck of a phone.

Both phones are lightweight.

However, they have managed to salvage this news by creating something that is ridiculously innovative: Pixel Buds.

The album was published on Google Photos recently by Isaac Reynolds, a product manager at Google's Camera department. For example,"Ok Google call Dad" through voice recognition will be deciphered by sound of voice, so Google knows that it's me speaking, not my wife and then call "dad" from my contacts list. The story is clear now - AI is the future, and the Pixels, Google Homes, and everything else, exist just to get that AI into our homes.

This could make for interesting competition. The 5.5in display on the iPhone 8 Plus isn't bad at all-it's just the Google Pixel 2 XL's display is higher spec'd.

Google has finally achieved what science fiction novels (and various fundraiser campaigns) have been promising us for years: a universal translator which could close linguistic barriers between nations. And Google committed to 3 years of software support, which is great. However, this time Google are forefront of hardware production.

What will the renewable energy marketplace look like in five years' time?
Renewables made up almost two-thirds of new net power capacity around the world in 2016, with 165 GW of capacity coming online. Globally, falling auction prices for wind and solar projects have contributed to the rise in new renewable energy capacity.

Now, Google has made a decision to copy Apple and deliver the Google Home Max, being a smart speaker which promises (surprise) louder and better sound. Very much a direct competitor to the Amazon Echo Dot. Danny Vena owns shares of Alphabet (A shares), Amazon, and Apple. Still with Google Assistant built, the focus here is on the quality of the audio and volume.

We love you, 3.5mm headphone jack!

The Google Home Max will be launched in December.

"One commenter - amandaw33 - wrote: "'The Pixel 2 still comes with a headphone jack' is a little misleading in a world where headphone jack is AUX out, no?

Similarly, Samsung too revealed a similar feature on its device.

The Pixel debuted a year ago, with analysts estimating sales of more than 2 million, pushing Google to record amounts of non-advertising revenue.

The assistant works in a similar fashion to Google Home, allowing you to ask for songs and artists but also ask questions while you listen to music. Google says it can play "loud, really loud", and is "20 times more powerful than the original Google Home". Both are audio-related products.
