The Next Google Event: News, Rumors, and Announcements

The release of the latest Pixel smartphone and more

Google holds events both annually and less regularly to announce new products and functionality. Google I/O is the company's conference for developers, while Made by Google is more consumer-facing.

What Is the Date for the Next Google Event?

The next Google event, "Google Presents: Live from Paris," is February 8, 2023 at 8:30 a.m. ET. The next Google I/O event will be in May.

What Will Google Announce?

Google's next event will be about how it's using A.I./machine learning in search on a variety of its platforms. Their official description says:

"We're reimagining how people search for, explore, and interact with information, making it more natural and intuitive than ever before to find what you need. Join us to learn how we're opening up greater access to information for people everywhere, through Search, Maps and beyond."

Announcements won't just be a response to A.I. tools like ChatGPT for search, but that's partly what's going on. Google seems to be updating its whole platform to focus on natural language searching, which may affect how people get driving directions, find restaurants, look up images, and more. The invitation also mentions visual search engine Google Lens, Maps, Shopping, and Translate, suggesting that announcements won't just be about basic internet browsing.

You can watch the event live on Google's YouTube channel:

On October 6, 2022, Google officially announced its Pixel 7 and 7 Pro smartphones, Pixel Watch, and the latest Pixel Buds. All these devices were manufactured using recycled materials. The company also previewed the Pixel Tablet, which will arrive later this year.

Google I/O 2022 featured teasers of Android 13, Pixel 7, and Glasses. It also showed off a Pixel Watch with Fitbit integration, the Pixel Buds Pro (its answer to the AirPods Pro), a Pixel tablet, and AR Glasses.

Google didn't offer much information about their AR Glasses aside from a demo of live translation during a conversation. Availability, pricing, and specs are not yet known.

The Pixel 6a smartphone announced in March also got a closer look. We should get more details about these products and software updates in the fall. Android 12 came out in Fall 2021, as did the Pixel 6 smartphone line.
