Google's Pixel Charging Stand Turns Your Pixel Into an Assistant-Based Home Helper
Google today announced Pixel Stand, a wireless charger for the new Pixel 3 phones. The stand charges the devices wirelessly, but also transforms the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones into Google Home Hub-style assistants. The screen of the Pixel can be set to display the weather, notifications, photos, and much more while the phone charges. It keeps the phone in a listening mode so it will always respond to "Hey Google" commands for search and other queries. It will display album art when listening to music, and offer native integration with Google Home smart products, and wake people; gently with what Google calls the Sunrise Alarm. The Pixel Stand costs $79 and is available for preorder today.
Google’s Pixel 3 may have one of the best cameras on a modern smartphone, but with no wide-angle or telephoto options, it isn’t as flexible as the cameras on competing devices. That’s why Moment has targeted the Pixel with a new case and lens system.
Google designed a special wireless charger for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Not only does the Pixel Stand charge your phone rapidly, it conjures up special features that turn the phone into a miniature desktop assistant.
The Pixel 3 from Google is an intelligent phone that wants to help you. The Google Assistant is baked into every facet of the Pixel 3, and together with Android 9 Pie it will learn who you are, what you like to do, and what you need as you move throughout your day.
Google's flagship Android devices are here! The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL carry forward Google's vision of AI-boosted mobile computing.
