Welcome to our new episode of Top Tech News, where we bring you the latest news from the tech world in India and across the globe. Today we’re talking about the Google Pixel 7 launch event, Netflix ad tier plan and more.
Announcing the Google Pixel 7 launch date
Google’s next generation of Pixel smartphones, the Pixel 7 series, will launch on October 6, the company has confirmed. Google confirmed the hardware event last night, September 6, just a day before Apple’s “Far Out” event for the iPhone 14 series.
Google has also confirmed that alongside the Pixel 7 series, it will also launch Google’s highly anticipated smartwatch, the Pixel Watch. The Google Pixel 7 series will be powered by Google’s second-generation Tensor chip which the company calls the “Tensor G2” chip. Google Tensor chips debuted last year with the Google Pixel 6 series, and the first generation of the chipsets had a mostly positive response. With the Tensor G2, Google is said to be making things even better.
Netflix’s Ad Level Plan Could Roll Out November 1
The Netflix ad tier plan could be offered as early as November 1 according to a new report this week. It looks like the popular streaming platform went with the new schedule before Disney+ brought its own advertising tier plan to market.
Netflix has spoken of plans to launch the ad-supported plan sometime in 2023, but the schedule has been prepared to compete with Disney, which now offers its own ad-supported plan starting at $7.99 (approximately Rs 639) in the United States on December 8. Netflix clarified that it was initially targeting only a few markets with significant ad spend in countries like the US, UK, Canada, France and Germany.
