πŸ‘‘ Happy Friday everyone! Yesterday was clearly a historic day with the passing of Queen Elizabeth, but we’re here to talk about tech news, and there’s never a shortage of that!

Android 13 beta reveals new Pixel Tablet details

Pixel Tablet animation leak
Google first unveiled the Pixel tablet in May this year, but the news has been very brief since then. Now the beta version of Android 13 has revealed a new taste of what we can expect from the device, and it comes straight from the source (code).
  • The initial reveal showed pins on the back and fans largely speculated that these would allow the tablet to serve as a smart display.
  • Some sleuthing by the folks at 9to5Google revealed animations in the Android 13 beta that seem to support this, with the Pixel tablet sliding into a dock.
  • Once connected, the Google Assistant logo and icons for alarm, music, videos and photos will appear, all of which can be found on the Nest Hub.
  • A separate animation shows a split screen layout (see above) and shows how to connect and disconnect the device.
  • We don’t really get to see the dock though. But at least we can now confirm its (future) existence.
  • You can view both animations here.
