Say hello to the Google Pixel Tablet, designed to be helpful 24/7 in your hand and in your home. It’s built with the latest Android features, our Google Tensor G2 chip and our iconic Pixel design. Here’s a look at what’s in the new tablet and all the reasons why you won’t leave this device forgotten in a drawer.
From our partners:
A premium tablet built for all your entertainment needs
With a brilliant 11-inch display and four built-in speakers for crisp audio, the tablet is the perfect entertainment companion.1 The Pixel Tablet looks and feels great — with its fresh colors (Porcelain, Hazel and Rose) and rounded edges. Plus, the aluminum enclosure is textured with our unique nano-ceramic coating, making it easy to grip.
We worked closely with the Android team so the apps you love — like YouTube, Spotify, Disney+ and more — look better and are easier to browse on the big(ger) screen. Not sure what to watch? Pixel Tablet comes with the Google TV app optimized for the larger screen, so you can always find something.
Plus, the tablet’s fast performance and battery life — all powered by our Tensor G2 chip that’s in our Pixel phones — make it the ideal tablet for playing your favorite games like Asphalt 9.
AI-powered features and more to help you get more done
Pixel Tablet makes it easy to get more done — from working on the go to keeping in touch with family and friends.
Over 50 Google apps are optimized for the Pixel Tablet, including Google Meet. Google Meet quickly adjusts the lighting as you move around and brings HD video calling to the tablet, so you look your best no matter what you’re doing. You can even add a little fun to your video calls with 360-degree backgrounds, like beaches and futuristic cities, that will adjust with you as you move and change positions. Your video chats are always optimized for where you are and how you’re lit, moment by moment, thanks to our latest AI camera technology and Tensor G2.
That’s not all, the tablet’s larger screen and AI-powered capabilities help you do even more. Pixel Tablet is the best Pixel device to edit your photos with tools like Magic Eraser and Photo Unblur. With the split screen function, you can use two apps on the screen at the same time. While you’re dropping a picture from Google Photos into Gmail, you can also use Assistant voice typing on Pixel Tablet (which is almost three times faster than regular typing) to make writing emails a breeze.2
As always, your personal information is protected with Pixel. With Tensor G2 and the Titan M2 security chip, Pixel Tablet is built with multiple layers of security to help keep you safe and secure.
A design that’s helpful in your home
To make the tablet a helpful part of your home, it’s paired with the Charging Speaker Dock. The dock keeps your tablet charged up and has speakers with four times the bass than the Pixel Tablet alone for room-filling sound.3 Plus, when the tablet is in Hub Mode it turns into a helpful home device you can use even hands-free. Use it as a smart home controller4, music and entertainment player, voice-activated helper or digital photo frame.
Pixel Tablet is one of the best ways to control your smart home. When it’s in Hub Mode, tap the Google Home icon to access all of your compatible smart home devices so you can view your video doorbell feed, adjust your thermostat or turn on the living room lights. You’ll see the same devices in your “Favorites” tab in the Google Home app that’s available for anyone to use starting today.
It’s also the first tablet with Chromecast built-in, so you can cast videos or music from your phone to the tablet when it’s in Hub Mode.
Whether you’re controlling your smart home devices in Hub Mode or want to dock your device for room-filling sound, Pixel Tablet seamlessly integrates into your home when paired with the Charging Speaker dock.
