Both phones share Google’s new Tensor G3 chipset, as well as Android 14 out of the box and a promise of seven years of OS upgrades, and are available for preorders starting today.


The Pixel Watch 2 has some design changes, too, and is available for preorder starting at $349. There’s a new crown and updated sensor array, plus some features carried over from the Fitbit Sense 2.

The wearable was fully revealed earlier today during Google’s big Pixel 8 event along with the new phones, Android 14, and lots of AI-powered features.


Android 14 has a few new features for businesses, too.Enterprise IT teams have a few new options for workers with devices running Android 14, as Google’s blog post mentions a default screen lock PIN that has increased from four to six, the ability for admins to allow only approved credential managers to store login info, the ability to block potentially insecure 2G connections, and logs for ultra wideband.

Now that the new OS has launched along with the Pixel 8 family of devices, Android 14 can make it easier to select certain profiles for certain apps, switch between profiles, and save work-related screenshots directly to the work profile only.
