  • Thurston: You know where we're going?

  • Osterloh: We have this idea that, in the future,

  • you can get help wherever you are,

  • for whatever you need. It's almost like it's in the air.

  • Thurston: Hey. What's up, man?

  • Osterloh: How's it going? Have you seen any of this stuff?

  • Thurston: Never been here. Osterloh: Come on in.

  • Thurston: Thank you.

  • Kwee: I'm not necessarily designing this for myself.

  • I'm designing it for people out there

  • that really could use an assistant in their home.

  • MacIntosh: There's a lot of sensors, and processors, and machine learning.

  • Things that are uniquely Google.

  • Olsson: When you combine the ultimate piece of technology

  • and something so human that's where magic happens.

  • Giusti: This vision, to me, it's really compelling,

  • 'cause we can create a new generation of products that truly helpful.

  • Poupyrev: It helps you, from the background...

  • Thurston: Right. Poupyrev: Run in the foreground,

  • and the foreground is your life.

  • Thurston: Big picture. What's the endgame?

  • Osterloh: It's about making it easier every day.

  • Thurston: Making what easier?

  • Osterloh: Life. Thurston: Making life easier?

  • Osterloh: Yes.

  • Thurston: Let's take a look.

  • Person: Here we go.

  • Osterloh: Good morning.

  • Morning. Thanks so much for joining us here, in New York City,

  • and for those on the live stream for joining us, around the world.

  • Thanks so much.

  • We're gonna spend the next hour talking about the problems

  • we're working to solve for our users and the ways we're delivering help

  • for the way people need it when they need it.

  • We'll also take you into our labs with writer and cultural commentator

  • Baratunde Thurston, to hear from the folks at Google

  • who personally develop, design, and bring these products to life.

  • Now, if you look across all of Google's products,

  • from Search to Maps, Gmail to Photos,

  • our mission is to bring

  • a more helpful Google for you.

  • Creating tools that help you increase your knowledge,

  • success, health, and happiness.

  • Now, when we apply that mission to hardware and services

  • it means creating products like these.

  • New Pixel phones, wearables, laptops, and Nest devices for the home.

  • Each one is thoughtfully and responsibly designed,

  • to help you in your every day without intruding on your life.

  • Now, in the mobile era, smartphones changed the world.

  • It's super useful to have a powerful computer everywhere you are,

  • but it's even more useful when computing is anywhere you need it.

  • Always available to help.

  • Now, you heard me talk about this idea with Baratunde

  • that helpful computing can be all around you.

  • Ambient computing.

  • Your devices work together with services and AI,

  • so help is anywhere you want it, and it's fluid.

  • The technology just fades into the background when you don't need it.

  • So the devices aren't the center of the system.

  • You are. That's our vision for ambient computing.

  • The Google Assistant plays a critical role here.

  • It pulls everything together and gives you a familiar,

  • natural way to get the help you need.

  • Our users tell us they find the Google Assistant to be smart,

  • user friendly, and reliable.

  • And that's so important for ambient technology.

  • Interactions have to feel natural and intuitive.

  • Here's an example. If you want to listen to music,

  • the experience should be the same whether you're in the kitchen,

  • you're driving in your car, or hanging out with friends.

  • No matter what you're doing,

  • you should just be able to say the name of a song,

  • and the music just plays.

  • Without you having to pull out a phone, and tap on screens, or push buttons.

  • So think about how this vision plays out in the home

  • where ambient technology can make life so much easier.

  • When you wake up in the morning your home

  • knows what you need to start your day.

  • You can get your commute, find out when your first meeting starts,

  • maybe play some music on whatever speaker or screen is nearby.

  • And when you leave your house your lights, thermostat, door locks,

  • security cameras--they all just know what to do.

  • And your devices go silent and turn off notifications at night

  • when you want to relax without technology interrupting

  • or distracting you.

  • So throughout your home technology works as a single system,

  • instead of a bunch of devices doing their own thing.

  • Now, we can bring this ambient computing vision to gaming, as well.

  • With Stadia, our new generation cloud gaming platform,

  • we're aiming to deliver the best games ever made

  • to almost any screen in your life.

  • So I'm excited to share an update with y'all.

  • Stadia will be available on November 19th,

  • so you'll be able to play games wherever you want.

  • On your TV, your laptop, even your Pixel,

  • which will be the first phone to support Stadia when it launches.

  • We're also creating a few areas

  • to create more human interactions with technology,

  • like motion sense and the new Google Assistant for Pixel 4.

  • So instead of being glued to your phone,

  • you can use quick gestures and voice commands

  • and then get back to your day.

  • That push for quicker, more natural interactions

  • is leading us in new hardware directions, too,

  • extending the phone's capabilities in new ways.

  • Let's take a look.

  • Thurston: This is clearly a time machine.

  • Olsson: Yeah, exactly.

  • Thurston: And you're pretending to use it to test ear buds.

  • That's a great cover story. Right.

  • Left. Up. Down. Hello.

  • Olsson: Hi.

  • Thurston: Isabelle? I know you and your team

  • led the design for the ear buds.

  • Olsson: We really wanted it to just be a simple,

  • tiny little dot floating in your ear.

  • What is a simpler form than a circle, and how insanely tiny can we make it?

  • 'Cause there's, like, two computers in there.

  • Thurston: Those are floating computers in your head?

  • Olsson: Yes, yeah.

  • Thurston: Do you remember how you felt when you first got the design brief

  • for what these ear buds were supposed to do?

  • Yip: I think it's crazy.

  • MacIntosh: Certainly, the assembly is the really challenging part of this.

  • All of these pieces have to go together with sub-millimeter precision.

  • I don't think I would have imagined we'd be able to build things

  • with this kind of processing power this small.

  • There's a lot of sensors and processors.

  • Little bit like building a ship in the bottle.

  • What we've managed to do here is not just make great headphones,

  • but really putting in all of the other things that are uniquely Google

  • about this--the ability to process your voice.

  • Thurston: Hello. MacIntosh: And to make a call clear,

  • even when you're riding a bicycle down the sidewalk.

  • Thurston: Yeah, yeah. Okay.

  • MacIntosh: A lot of software. A lot of machine learning.

  • It's the magic that powers the product.

  • Turns a great set of headphones into a Google set of headphones.

  • Osterloh: All right.

  • That was a sneak peek at the all-new Google Pixel buds.

  • So you can start to get an idea of what ambient computing feels like.

  • With Pixel buds help is there when you want it,

  • and the experience just comes to you, even when your phone's not in your hand.

  • For instance, you can get hands-free access to the assistant.

  • So instead of turning to your phone for quick tasks, you can just say,

  • "Hey, Google," and ask the assistant for whatever you need.

  • Resume your podcast, send a quick text, get directions,

  • or even understand another language with Google Translate.

  • Pixel buds even have a long-range Bluetooth connection

  • which keeps you connected,

  • even when your phone isn't by your side,

  • so you can wear them in the yard when your phone might be charging inside

  • or leave your phone in a locker, if you're working out in a gym.

  • Indoors, Pixel buds'll stay connected up to three rooms away,

  • and outside, they'll work across an entire football field.

  • Of course, Pixel buds won't be truly helpful,

  • unless they're also great headphones.

  • They have to have excellent sound quality.

  • They've gotta be comfortable to wear all the time,

  • and they need to last long enough to be useful.

  • That's a lot to ask of a pair of headphones,

  • especially because they also need to be unobtrusive too.

  • So we did some intricate origami with Pixel buds,

  • to make sure everything fit.

  • Custom speakers. Sensors. Custom battery.

  • That's usually what makes these wireless ear buds

  • stick so far out of your ears,

  • but Pixel buds gives you plenty of battery life

  • to get through your day.

  • You'll have five hours of continuous listening time on a single charge

  • and up to 24 hours when you're using a wireless charging case.

  • Now, even with all those components and long battery life,

  • you can see Pixel buds fits almost flush with the ear.

  • They're so small and light it's easy to forget you're wearing 'em.

  • At the same time, Pixel buds deliver excellent sound quality.

  • Now, you typically have to choose

  • between great sound and awareness of the world around you,

  • but Pixel buds gives you both with a unique hybrid design.

  • The ear buds gently seal the ear for rich bass and clear highs,

  • and the spatial vent underneath reduces that plugged-ear feeling

  • and lets through just the right amount of environmental sound.

  • On the software side, Pixel buds respond to your surroundings

  • with a new adaptive sound. The volume dynamically adjusts,

  • as you move from the quiet of your home to a subway or a noisy cafe,

  • and you don't have to constantly raise or lower the volume.

  • When you're on a call, beam-forming mikes focus on your voice

  • while voice accelerometers detect speech through your jawbone,

  • so a loud restaurant or a windy day

  • won't get in the way of your conversation.

  • Pixel buds will be available in the spring of next year,

  • and we'll share more details in the coming months,

  • including a few of the helpful experiences

  • that make good use of the on-device machine learning chips.

  • So as you can see, this ambient computing era's going to bring

  • all kinds of new interfaces, services, and devices,

  • but it's also introducing new challenges.

  • When computing's always available designing for security and privacy

  • becomes more important than ever.

  • You need to know that your data's safe.

  • Protecting your data and respecting your privacy

  • are at the core of everything we do.

  • We've designed strong protections across our hardware family,

  • like the Titan security chip in our phones and laptops.

  • Titan protects your most personal on-device information,

  • your OS data, passwords, even information in third-party apps.

  • And we know that privacy is personal which is why you have the controls,

  • so that you can choose the settings you want that are right for you.

  • We make it easy to access simple on/off controls,

  • including turning cameras and mikes on your Nest devices off.

  • And you can now delete assistant data just by asking.

  • Everything is designed with your privacy in mind,

  • and you'll see examples of that throughout today's presentation.

  • Now, we're also gonna talk today about our work

  • to create more sustainable products and processes.

  • Developing sustainable solutions to mass production and consumption

  • is one of the biggest challenges we face today,

  • as an industry.

  • It impacts all of us, and it will for generations to come.

  • Now, we believe Google has both the ability

  • and the responsibility to create systemic change.

  • As a company, we've been focused on sustainability for a long time.

  • Google's operations have been carbon neutral since 2007,

  • and for the past two years,

  • we've matched all of Google's energy consumption

  • with 100% renewable energy.

  • And we're continuing to expand access to clean energy to more people,

  • including our suppliers and the communities

  • where our products are made.

  • So today we're announcing that Google's committing to invest

  • another $150 million

  • in renewable energy projects in key manufacturing regions.

  • Our investment...

  • [applause]

  • Our investment, alongside financial

  • and manufacturing partners,

  • aims to catalyze $1.5 billion of capital.

  • Now, this'll generate approximately the same amount of renewable energy

  • as the electricity used to manufacture
