Google eliminates face scanner from its new Pixel 5 smartphone
"A. Few. Follow ups from yesterday's big. Google announcements. Google's Rick. Osterloh told the verge that gestures and face recognition which were in the Pixel four and are gone in the Pixel five will return like MacArthur future models of the Pixel. He said the project solely sensor, which is the one that handles the gestures and makes it easy to do. The face recognition was too expensive for Pixel Five. They wanted to keep the price point down and that that apparatus was just too pricey at this point, but they do attend to bring it back in future pixels.

"I really cool. Assistant offerings and other things are all going to tie together in hardware so you know for an optimal service experience. You're going to want to have the hardware but regardless. I think that's an important thing. I think having your hardware marin software tied together is probably going to get more important over time and with like iot and ambient computing as they like to call it and then you know hello rick osterloh seeing overseeing the pixel business be curious if they brought someone else in for that. I don't really know what they're going to do with pixel. I always feel like it's okay to connect to us jeff. Don't do don't do what you did to the next seven. Don't do work doc by pixel the pixel going anywhere. I don't think they're going anywhere. I i just worry about any shift. I don't like change well and this would be a big change right like the the expectations for the pixel for pretty high. Google helped with that because they've they've confirmed what's already. That's already set in stone. Whatever that's it's gonna be it is whatever it is. It is <hes> sorta just potentially show different strategic view or somebody wanted control a bit or keep rick in there and so they're saying at least for now but if they make rick in charge of all of hardware and then they have this overarching view you could see things and let's let's have fun and go on the conspiracy train all right remember how they're building the fuchsia o._s. Which is supposed to be a browser for everything you could. Maybe start seeing among the tie ins across devices that google makes it could be more fun like your phone being able to talk directly to your assistance assistant. Somehow i know it talks to your sister over wifi if you want but maybe it would be more automatic and i know some people will hate this but it could could could start to kind of create these cool context clues and have things that you need follow you from device to device or pop up on the device where it matters at that moment in time yeah and that that requires a lot of integration that i don't think i mean god'll quick look at what's happening right now with g. Sweeten assistant and you're just like yeah yeah. All of their different units not not quite on the same page <hes> which is the longstanding story of google. You in you see that coming together. I mean actually at the end of this month. We're going to see the end of works with nest because they've decided detail that in and give themselves a little bit more control so so i mean is this going to be awesome for every single end user out there no but is it gonna make google's life easier and also create this more unified like vision and product strategy..

"I deeply love okay <hes> so yeah so they need need to put that little sensitivity thing out in case you put big case out and then you can't hit the edge just right there. That is the most android thing i've ever heard it all of the best in worst ways like there's a party that loves it because only google and only android comes up with that solution yup and as part of and it's like this is this this is this is the whole problem with android in a weird way. Android is more consistent than the iphone when it comes to swiping in from the left side of the screen even with that weird peak thing which which they should get rid of because on an iphone sometimes swiping in goes back and sometimes it opens up a drawer you never know was it opened up a door slack or a bunch of apps that that have georgina like a bunch of apps. If you swipe from the left sometimes you go up in the hierarchy and sometimes you open up drawer over on the left hand side. You never know and google just swiping in goes back the end okay so twitter. Yeah see whole bunch of apps. Oh this is like all over the place yeah. This is what i'm saying even the twitter app. It's like all right yeah. You never really know no. I know i figured it out yeah. I'm not gonna tell you okay no. It's it goes back in the hierarchy until you get to haul yes us which is sure it does something different depending on the context which is exactly what you want in a user design user interface design. Especially for an undiscovered will just yet so. I haven't seen as much about this. I just got the the beta on my phone just before the verge castle. I'm now expert foreigners. If you swipe oh god back on the bottom left or bottom quarter if you swipe back that's not a back. That's the assistant. The google assistant is a diagonal swipe in from either of the bottom corners that is correct and they are constantly changing the animation to try and figure out how to make it visible and understandable well and not annoying as hell like i'm being tricked and <hes> little little tidbit there. I think they can change it without having to push an entire android update like they. It could be like no one's using this. Let's tweak sitting on the server and that will like so. They're like the betas without the betas. Updating all right one is q. You coming out for real <hes> a few weeks quote unquote. Oh oh yeah so this is this is like this is what we're getting and <hes> everyone's very mad and i. I think they're very mad because google negotiated with terrorists. They tried to like give everybody what they wanted and they should have just said. No this how we're taking over and we're doing google way to do it right. The most google way to do it is like now made us ed active for back jasper but that doesn't even affect the thing that people blur unhappy about yeah. That's that's why it's the most google it's like. All of you are mad about google reader going away <hes> but here's a number of options in youtube. It's in the same also nine to five mac got a huge <hes> pixel scoop <hes> they've got like a whole bunch of specs and most hosted which are like basically what you would expect them to be the two interesting things are <hes> sounds like they're gonna go for a ninety hertz refresh rate screen so it'll be smoother and there is a quote unquote d._s._l. Attachment for the cameras on the back. What like eleventh it is like. It's like i'm also the guy in charge.

"You will not regret it. Okay. We are running through these topics Andrew, but we have two more to go, and they are doozies with capital, dis. The first one is that yesterday. It was kind of came out of the blue but computer worlds are fringe Raphael had a scoop that he learned that Google is out of the tablet game like they've just done. They, they're not gonna make any more tablets. They are not making a follow up to the pixel slate they are out, and then they also also said that they would most likely follow up with a pixel book successor in twenty nineteen, which is really good news because it wasn't updated last year for obvious reasons. And then the man himself Rick Osterloh literally like scoops the, the leak again because why not on a roll here, and basically said that that's true. We're no longer in the tablet game but rest assured that we are committed to our partners when it comes to Android, and chrome, tablets, so that is a lot to unpack here. So let's start from the beginning. No more Google, tablets. What does that mean? For Ray because all their tablets since the next seven been compromised and not great. It doesn't really come as a massive surprise, when we had will, first of all because the tablets being bad part. But the general Android, tablets being bad part. Also, the chrome OS as a tablet operating system, not making sense, part. And then we had had this previous rumor back in March where it was. It was said that there were some tablets that were in the works, like a medium size in small sized tablet, that got canned. And those people that were working on those tablets were re you know, said, okay, well, this isn't going to be replaced with another tablet. You're going to work on laptops in the Google hardware division. And so the writing continuted. To be added to the wall, when they of course, when the pixel slate came out, and it was not fantastic. And then they cut back on models. And, you know, all these different little things, you're like, why are they continuing to just like bash their heads into a wall about? Tablets, and this weird dual tablet strategy of having the Android tablets, and the chrome OS, tablets, just didn't make a whole lot of sense. Anyway. The, the interesting part is Rick Osterloh being just confirming. It'd be like, yeah, we're no more rumors like we're actually just not making tablets anymore. And the crazy part, there is, is like, if Google just gonna come up straight up say, like, yeah, tablets just don't work for us with Android, or chrome OS. Oh, but we're happy to have our partners, make them as if you're one of these partners. How do you feel about that? I don't know. I mean it's so on the one hand. You know, this is sort of the Microsoft conundrum, and it's. Goes to show just a how difficult it is to design hardware, that makes sense for a mainstream audience, right? The pixel slate. Was was a cautionary tale in a number of ways. Right. They released four different models. One of them never got released or two of them never really got released, and they went all the way from, like six hundred dollars, which is the one that didn't get released because it's hardware was just too damn slow to, to run chrome all the way to like sixteen hundred dollars for a tablet that you had to pay extra for a keyboard. Yeah. I don't think that there was as the it wasn't so much that the product itself was not like well, designed the hardware wasn't well done. It was just that the value proposition was not at all. They're considering the price and what was being offered and the operating systems, just not being up to speed. I mean, this is the case all the way at the pixel see. So. Absolutely. I mean, we heard rumors that the pixel see was supposed to be a chrome device, and it wasn't ready at the time. And then there was no follow up to that for a couple of years. And then here we get the pixel the pixel slate and, you know, it made sense at the time that Google would not Bill. It's own Android based tablet anymore. Android tablets have been languishing for years. It's no secret. I mean to companies basically, build Android, tablets Samsung, and wall way the rest of the Android tablets are either using four versions of Android. Or they're these cheapie WalMart, branded crap tablets that nobody should buy. So putting chrome on it needs sense. But this, this enormous cloud of whether Google could make chrome into a touch friendly west was hanging over that release from the moment, we demo noted in October of him and it got delayed. And it got delayed eventually gets release, and even though we reviewed the, the tablet on the second most powerful skew which was a core. I five with plenty of ram this shouldn't have any problem running chrome and yet it shocked, and it was awkward and didn't make sense, the way that you interacted with it from a tablet to a laptop, and the whole thing, just felt unfinished in a way that the pixel book never did. And I just don't know how ever passed Google's quality control while. Yeah, I don't understand how. Did either? But that's the crazy part is at the pixel book is so good as a laptop, you know, it's a it's, obviously a super thin enlighten well-designed one. But you just you do have the extra Ford Ince's of it being an actual laptop with laptop internals, not trying to pull this double duty thing with all the thermal constriction restrictions of the pixel slate, but it is just crazy the same. Now, the same people per se, but the same group could make the pixelbook so great. And then make the pixel slate be such a. Charitable just not just not good product. So I mean on the one hand like you said the pixel book was this, like, it's, it's miraculous. How fantastic this product is. But it's also you know, it's a two and one, you can turn that keyboard around and use it as a tablet. Nobody really does that. But the way that Google tried to address the tablet problem for chrome OS was to build this tablet, only interface where it's sort of it was like this, hybrid between an ipad and a full desktop or you have. You know, you can like dragon drop between windows you have the sort of pinch out view. You have these afford Ince's that make touch targets bigger things like that. But even today in June twenty nineteen with how many like they update chrome every six weeks. So, you know, a like a half dozen. You know, four or five major updates to chrome. They still haven't fixed the bulk of the performance issues. This is like even our even like Jerry who loves chrome and who's very, very forgiving of a product like the pixel book or pixel slate is not going to go out of his way to complement Google's touch changes for the us. Yeah. That's the craziest thing is that. You can you can have problems with the way that the interface works, and not having that kind of tablet touch only paradigm set up properly, but the performance problems are inexcusable. I mean you can have interface issues and not be able to handle window management properly. Like those are really tough things in something you would expect in the transition from a desktop style operating system to a tablet one but not being able to run smoothly is not something that should be excused. And if they re this really was like top people put this thing together, and this was the result than yet maybe they shouldn't make tablets anymore, but I mean on a higher level we're also talking about. The hardware group and the software group are not the same people. And even though Google is no longer making tablets. It's not gonna stop optimizing chrome for the tablet form factor because we still have companies like HP like Dell like a Seuss building Chromebooks, and we know that they're going to try to make the chrome tablet thing. So it let's kind of think take a step back for a second and think, is now Google going to invest. It's resources that they couldn't get for its own products into a product for its partners. And this is dealer bone from the verge had editorial today where he sort of like laid it out in a way that I think makes a lot of sense. He said that when Google invest fully in something they do it. Right. I mean Android, they have improved Android to the point where it is basically the best mobile operating system in the world. I as somebody who came to this job largely using an iphone for most things I prefer using Android today. It's objectively in my opinion, a better offering system. They never did that with chrome tach, I think Chroma still has some growing pains from a laptop perspective. But by and large, you can use chrome for your daily workload. Nope. Problems. But you know, they just kind of gave up when it came to this, this paradigm shift, and I think they did the same thing with where Wes. They have not fully invested in making this a thing. And if you don't invest fully, it's basically dead in the interesting thing, there is the, this discussion of we won't do it, but partners can do it is just not gonna work. If Google presumably put a lot of work into these tablets over several years. Okay. You can be quiet phone listening to me, if it put all of these resources into making tablets, and it could make it happen. There's no incentive or structure in place. Expecting the other companies to do a better job. It just doesn't make a whole lot of sense. It doesn't align with what you would expect you want Google to be able to show you how it's done and up to this point. They haven't that's the crazy thing other than other than the high end Chromebooks which, you know, is out of the tablet sphere entirely. They haven't shown how it's done for his bad as Android, tablets are the best ones have not been Google's. They've been coming from other companies like Samsung, right? So, you know, I think I think there's also something to be said for, like I wanna give Google the benefit of the doubt here as big a company as it is, they don't have a long legacy of hardware, and maybe just comes down to the fact that they were spreading themselves too thin building, too many different types of products, and that they wanted to be able to focus on the form factors that their specific hardware team could do. Right. And, and I want again continue giving them the benefit of the doubt by saying that even though they are no longer building hardware, tablet hardware internally that does not mean that they're putting any less emphasis on optimizing chrome for touch that may not be true. But I don't think there's not a good sign..

"And then tell they what kind of messages that sort of Amazon also did that by the way, it was having people listening. I mean, I get it. You have to listen to those things, but like I would feel comfortable if it was a machine for some reason, I would feel more comfortable if it was a machine doing it. Because at least I would know it's all mathematical and not like some person being like they're talking about stupid stuff. You know? Anyway, to round off kind of the hardware this because this was more of a hardware. This was particularly hardware. Heavy Google compared to last couple of years, which I have to say as nice change of pace the pixel three a and three a X L were finally released finally showed off to everybody in three beautiful colors, a white one a black one and a purple ish lilac, it's lilac, and it's springtime everybody. Honestly, it's actually not that purple in person. It's issue purple. Like, you could tell it's supposed to be purple. But it's so lights like the machine ran out of toner as they were making the phone precisely actually that's a great way to describe it and then with a really neon button. I got to take one of these home, which I'm going to log onto the beta get it all set up this weekend. I want to talk about it more next weekend. And let y'all know my impressions about it. I'm excited to use it because I want to know of this is something that I can start recommending to folks because this is a four hundred dollar phone. It starts at four hundred dollars. It has a headphone Jack, which is going to make it accessible to so many more markets and not just be like, hey, you need to have bluetooth for this or a special adapter. I'll tell you what courage is about carriage. Literally, what they said said we're taking this feature because we have courage. Sorry. By the way, I'm listening to you three pair of apple buds that my friend. Let me borrow do. Sound very good on them. I have to say I haven't heard a while. They're wired wired. Yes. Your standard three point five millimeter. So it looks like it's supposed to have the same camera system without the pixel visual core. Again, I'm gonna be the judge of that. When I get to like, go out and take simultaneous pictures while the things Prenton. They were dunking on apple a tiny bit, which I kind of feel like it's time. It's just time like apples been deliberately coming after Google in its keynotes. And I know this is silly. But for those of us were fans that can be kinda fun 'cause it's like marvel versus DC. So you know, one can into the other. So what other makers do with expensive hardware, we do with AI repair comparing the pixel three to the iphone ten which I just think you know, what? Again, it's time. All let you have that you you deserve to have your, you know, your little punch to particularly because punch each other all the time these companies, particularly because the camera is like one of maybe the tent pole feature the thing they really really point out that here's how much we've improved this whatever it is. And they're very very happy to grant it in nightside own. Only show. Here's the thousand dollar camera versus here is our four hundred dollar camera. And with an okay, yes. In in a club with zero lighting. Yes. Night-sight does make the difference. But if it really does have the same the same lens system the same sensor system. The only thing that it's missing is again that picture pixel visual courtship for like machine learning stuff then. Yeah. The a four hundred dollar phone can really be just as good as like a twenty eighteen iphone X. That's that's celebrator. That's good. I just have to say as a side note. I did go up to Rick Osterloh..

"We can talk about um this as as things really cool the next thing is interesting so this story we're actually gonna skip over a review we did because it's you know it's a fit that ionic if he has really wanna know about it you should read the be onsite ryan reviewed it spoilers on frigates our watch um and let's talk about goodwill nest so according to a report from the wall street journal google wants to integrate the nest and we will hardware teams which only makes a lot of sets its it was very bizarre that a kept nest as a separate entity when they did the reorganization in the first place it would have made because that's red iran win rick osterloh was starting the the hard routine middle made so much sense to just keep nest as part of google but they did and for for everyone that has no idea what we're talking about um obviously google reorganize itself back in 2015 and they sort of made their own umbrella company called alphabet and a bunch of companies that used the under google went to being under alphabet and one of those was nest so for a couple of years ness has kind of been its own thing alongside google but with a little bit of overlap well and i think the reason that that that happened in the first place was basically to keep tony fidel around wasn't it um or at least for the little bit longer that they did iin i admit i'm not totally caught up with is he still there i thought he left out yet tony could also y'all so i i have a feeling that they split nest off into alphabet just to keep him around and at the at the point where he left there was it it's like okay we don't have a good person leading this anyway let's start planning on bringing this into in house.
