If you’re a big Pixel fan or looking forward to a Pixel ecosystem like the one Apple users enjoy, today was an exciting day for you. At the Google I/O Developer Conference on Wednesday, the company introduced its latest “Pro” Pixel buttons. The Google Pixel Buds Pro are Google’s first true wireless earbuds with active noise cancellation. The introduction of the Pixel Buds Pro mentions the inclusion of a silent seal that conforms to your ear to keep out ambient noise.

Other features include volume EQ that balances the sound whether you turn the volume up or down. In the ad, a Pixel Buds Pro carrier drives a taxi to the sound of the city in the background. If you pay attention to a lot of tech ads, you will notice that quite a few commercials for true wireless buttons take place in the city where there is a lot of background and ambient noise. This 45-second spot also mentions the new feature that automatically switches audio from one device to another.
The following video discusses the design of the Pixel Buds Pro in a 49-second video that can be edited for up to 30 seconds for television. The video shows the design of the Pixel Buds Pro as ambient sounds play in the background. Not exactly a strong message here, but it’s an interesting one that focuses on Google’s small design choices (like the wire mesh used for the Pixel Bud Pro’s speakers and the shape of the earbuds.
Google has released a 30-second spot for its new mid-range Pixelw and is called ‘Introducing the new Google Pixel 6a’. The commercial mentions Google’s internal Tensor chip and shows the Magic Eraser that makes an unwanted object disappear from a photo. It’s still an excellent feature on the new mid-range, as is Night Sight, which allows you to take great photos in low light without using a flash.
Google is ready for Pixel to take on Apple in handsets, earbuds, smartwatches and tablets!
As with the Pixel 6 series, Google is promoting the Pixel 6a’s ability to capture photos with more realistic skin tones. And with Extreme Battery Saver, users can control which apps in the background aren’t getting juice from the battery. Google claims that with Extreme Battery Saver, you can get up to 72 hours of battery life on a single charge.
Remember that ad featuring the design of the Pixel Buds Pro? Google made one for the Pixel 6a that has noise in the background related to nature, animals and a storm. The 38-second spot doesn’t seem to be used for a TV commercial.
The last video we have to show you is called ‘The Pixel Portfolio is here to help’. The video, at 1 minute and four seconds, is a loud introduction to the vast Pixel ecosystem that now includes the Google Pixel Watch and possibly a Pixel tablet. “Help”, that’s what we do,” says Google, referring to the Pixel brand. “Help at home, help on the road.”
And then Google says, “Pixels become more useful over time. That’s why we put the Pixel in your hands, on your wrist (!!!) in your ear. Because when it comes to helping, we can’t help but help.”
You have to admit that the last video has quite a beat as it welcomes the Pixel ecosystem into the world. This is one place that most consumers probably wouldn’t mind watching a few times on television.
This is a day that Pixel fans have long dreamed of, and we’ll no doubt hear more about the Pixel Watch and tablet as we get closer to unveiling and releasing those devices.
