Google’s September 29 press conference in San Francisco was one of the company’s most eventful shows in years. The theme was Pairs, and things did indeed come in twos. The Internet giant brought out two Nexus phones this year: LG’s mid-range Nexus 5X and Huawei’s high-end Nexus 6P. And Google also showed off two new Chromecast devices, one with significantly upgraded Wi-Fi and the other focused on audio.
Beyond hardware, the long-awaited Android 6.0 Marshmallow update was on tap of course, too, as were tidbits like a new $15 a month family subscription for Google Play Music and Spotify integration with Chromecast.
