Google I/O 2022 Recap

Highlights from the company’s annual developer conference

Wednesday we saw lots of major announcements from Google parent company Alphabet $GOOGL at their annual Google Input/Output developer conference 💻 in front of a live audience (first time in 3 years) at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California.

Watching the keynote, Google had a lot they wanted to share, mainly in the hardware space. The company revealed some exciting new products coming out(and more coming out a little later) and further investments/updates into AI, privacy, and services area. He are some of the major highlights I took away from this year's event.


Google main product is Google Search 🔎 and now it's getting even more powerful with multisearch.

This was the first thing that stood out to me at the event. I find this new tool fascinating! With multisearch, it makes it even easier for users to find real-life products and stores. As an example, you can combine a search with restaurant near me with a specific recipe at that location and be able to find results that close fit your multisearch. I'm really excited to see this feature launch 🚀.

My Ad Center

Google’s services are highly ad-based, having 209 billion dollars in revenue through this space in 2021 🤑 and later this year, the company will launch “My Ad Center,” a place where users can control over the ads they see across the web. There, the user will have options to disable Personalized Ads and reduce the number of ads based on the user’s data, or even choose which categories of ads the user wants to see or not see.

Users will even be able to limit advertisements by brands or sensitive content, such as alcohol, gambling, clothing, or dating.

Google Wallet

Google wants you to replace your wallet with the upcoming launch of Google Wallet.

A similar version to Apple Wallet will now let you store your tickets 🎟, drivers license 🪪, and even loyalty cards 💳 through this new app. Google Pay will be a companion to the new wallet. It's expected to come out later in the year.

Pixel Phones

We got see a first glimpse of their new pixel phone📱lineup coming out this fall that comes in sleek design with the frame being made with recycled aluminum. The company plans to reveal more details soon on this. They also did a refresh to the Pixel 6 phone model with a lot power and features for a budget friendly phone. This model called 6a is selling for $449 and being released this summer.

Pixel Watch

The first branded Google watch⌚️has arrived to the Googleverse! The company showcased there new watch at the event and it looks great. It features a nearly bezel-less watch face flanked by a “tactile crown.” It runs Wear OS 3 and includes deep integration with Fitbit software (They own watch company Fitbit) for its health and fitness-tracking features.

This entry comes into a highly competitive space of smartwatch wareables as they compete against Apple, Samsung, Garmin, and Fossil.

Pixel Buds Pro

Revealed today also was a new update to the buds 🎧 , the first since 2020. It brings to the table active noise cancellation, wireless charging that can last for up to 11 hours on a single charge, and also introduce multi-device connectivity, with intelligent automatic switching between devices when a call comes in on a smartphone-whether it’s running Android or iOS-or when a video starts playing on a connected laptop.

We will see them come out this summer in four color options: Charcoal, Coral, Fog, and Lemongrass.

There were so many amazing things the company shared at Google I/O event and their was even more cool things they shared at the conference. They are in development of AR glasses, updates to Android software, launching of the Google Pixel Tabet, and added immersive views for Google Maps.
