Today is Day 1 of Google I/O 2019 and I managed to watch most of the opening keynote via live stream. I’ve created a wiki page to capture information from the conference this year. The biggest news from the keynote were hardware related.
One is the consolidation of Google Home and Nest, the Nest brand remains. With this consolidation is a new video hub, the Nest Hub Max.
The other big news was the announcement of two new, power priced phones, the Pixel 3a and 3a XL. While not unexpected, still interesting timing given that Google announced the Pixel 3/3XL last October.
