As expected, Google took the wraps off its all-new Pixelbook Go -- a lighter counterpart to its standard Pixelbook, running ChromeOS. It sports 13.3 inches touchscreen and claims to offer two hours of battery life with less than 30 minutes of charging (20 minutes to be precise). The Pixelbook Go is available to pre-order in two colours -- Just Black and Not Pink -- in the US as well as Canada, starting at $649.
Google unveiled Nest Wifi for home connectivity. Google says Nest Wifi will be available in 8 global markets this year.

Google announced the second-generation Nest Mini -- the successor to last year's Google Home Mini smart speaker. In terms of design, Nest Mini bears a striking resemblance to the Original Mini. It still features rounded edges and provides users with multiple colour options: Chalk, Charcoal, Coral and Sky. Nest Mini is already up for pre-orders. It comes at the price of $49.
And finally, Google unveiled its latest Pixel smartphones -- Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. Both the phones feature dual rear cameras with a square camera module, similar to iPhone 11.
