Here's how you can watch the Google Pixel 6 Fall Launch event.

The Pixel 6 was revealed by Google a few months ago, and will be the next smartphone in the company’s line-up. We don’t know too much about the phones, outside of some light specs, but that is going to change today. Google is hosting a Pixel 6 Fall Launch event, where it will share more information about the upcoming devices. Let’s take a look at how you can watch the Google Pixel 6 Fall Launch.

The Google Pixel 6 Fall Launch event is taking place today, October 19, 2021, at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET. The event is being hosted on the company’s website, but you can also view the broadcast on the Google YouTube account using the video embed above. Google hasn’t shared many details about the event, but we’ll surely be learning more about the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, including a date for launch and pre-order.

Google did not reveal the official spec list for the Google Pixel 6 when they announced the phones this summer, but leaks gave us a good indication to expect from the new phones. This includes a 6.4 and 6.71-inch display, with 8 and 12MP cameras. If what we’ve heard about the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro is true, it won’t be much longer until we have confirmation.

          I'm on 12 beta 5 on my 4XL and I am ready for real 12 instead of beta. There have been fixes which is nice though. Apparently they're waiting for public 12 release on the 28th. When shipments of the 6 are supposed to be in hand.

        Update on my Pixel 3 bricking last week:

        I reported my phone's issue on the Googe Issue Tracker:

        https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/192008282

        By doing so it subbed me to the comments section. Well now I get an email about every four hours with another Pixel 3 bricking and some disappointed customer. And that's just people who stumble upon this page. So it seems pretty widespread now. They're all the same generally: healthy phone just goes dark, draws power and shows up in device manager as something, but will not recover.

        In the past day there have been a couple reports of folks getting replacements, which is new. If I can find time today I'm going to try again to convince them to replace. Until I see how they respond to this overall issue, I'm not feeling too hot on the Pixel 6. Again, my 3XL was flawless for 3 years, so I was pretty hyped on the phones otherwise.

            October 19, 2021 2:24 PM

            I just called them as they had it over the weekend.

            They say it needs a new screen ($380)!

            If the screen failed why did it drop off the network at 4am and stop communicating via Bluetooth to my watch at the same time?

            Basically I don't believe them, but I don't want to gamble $400 to find out. A used Pixel 3XL is under $200 and there's nothing on the phone that I need.

            • reply
              October 19, 2021 2:42 PM

              Could ask them for a guarantee. If that doesn't fix the issue, then you get a full refund. If they actually know what they're doing they shouldn't have a problem with that. If they're just throwing parts at it, then they'll cuss you out and ask you never to come back. Don't. ;)

              But, ya, it's not the screen.

          They may introduce the watch, maybe, but not for sale until next year. I've seen rumors of a new tablet as well. Unknown about unveiling though. Maybe a new PixelBook too! All speculative.

        October 19, 2021 9:30 AM

        Eager to see what the pricing is. If that Target leak is accurate, that should put the Pass pricing into impulse range for me. My 4a still has some life in it, but there are things about it that annoy me. I assume it's a combination of lower end chip and their aggressive battery saver philosophy. I wish they would at least put more control of that into the user settings. If I'm working from home, I don't need it to be as aggressive.

        But, really, this is all about what that Tensor chip is going to do for photos. The photo capabilities are the main reason why I went with the 4a since I found my primary use for my phone was playing music in the car and taking pics of my kids. Streaming music is such a low commodity feature now. That puts the camera as the primary decider for me. I've been very pleased with the camera features on the Pixel. I wouldn't mind that bundle approach to also get One with more storage if there's an option to bump up to the family plan so the whole family has massive storage available. I assume that's pretty much going to be the way of the future.

          I need something more on the Pro to push me over edge. I want it for the camera but doesn't seem worth the price difference just for that.

              Something a light phone user would get something out of. Camera that can zoom without turning stuff into an oil painting isn't quite worth the price premium.

            I'm in the same boat. I don't have a good enough reason to go for the Pro. The extra lens would be nice, but it's situational. More ram would make things snappier. Although, if the leak prices are right, it's not a terrible deal for the extra features.

      I was afraid of this. Not compatible with their own family plans. That's going to be something I'll have to think about.


      Can I share the Google services included in Pixel Pass with my family?
      Pixel Pass subscribers can share their Google One or Play Pass access with up to 5 additional family members at no extra cost (so 6 total, including you). If you’re already sharing Google One or Play Pass access when you subscribe to Pixel Pass, your sharing setup will be carried over seamlessly.

      YouTube Premium and YouTube Music Premium family plans are not available with Pixel Pass subscriptions at this time.

      Preferred Care does not offer a family plan.

        Google, you're killing me here.


        What if I’m already subscribed to one or more of these Google services?
        If you already subscribe to Google One or Play Pass through Google, your current subscriptions will be canceled automatically once your Pixel device ships and you receive your first bill for Pixel Pass.

        If you’re already a YouTube Premium or YouTube Music Premium member, you’ll need to manually cancel that subscription before you can subscribe to Pixel Pass. When you subscribe to Pixel Pass, your YouTube Premium service will be reinstated – with your music library and playlists carried over seamlessly.

        If you’re already subscribed to one of the services included in Pixel Pass through another company, such as a network carrier or retailer, you’ll need to contact them to cancel your subscription in order to avoid paying for that subscription and Pixel Pass at the same time.

        Pixel phones included in Pixel Pass work with all major carriers. If you subscribe to Pixel Pass on Google Fi with a phone plan, you save $5 off your monthly bill.

        It's going to be big change for how I pick up the phone. Especially since being on the back has a physical disc for your finger to find automatically. Can't do that as accurately on the screen.

            To be fair that's precisely the target effect so it looks like they've achieved that with you at least! I'm slightly less excited by how many concessions they've made on the non-Pro version, particularly the front camera.

              Hah, no doubt, though I admit the 6 looks good and I do want one - but ultimately I'm not unhappy with the 5; I can wait.

              I can't really say there's anything wrong with how the 5 has performed. Most of my gripes are little things with the Pixel Launcher, and, well, those wouldn't be fixed by moving to the 6 Pro.

                  October 19, 2021 2:13 PM

                  The screen fingerprint reader is a big negative for me - not because I'm concerned it won't work, but because I just really strongly prefer them to be on the back.

                  It just makes pulling it out of the pocket and unlocking a single motion where I don't have to look at the phone.

                  I'll have to adjust my behavior a bit without that.

        October 19, 2021 2:14 PM

        If you log in via google, which you probably do with android, it will be easy, and if you keep the other phone while you set it up you should have the option to transfer files directly via wifi.

          And no, you don't need to pay any subscription for that basic account stuff.

          I don't know if AT&T requires anything, but on T-Mobile it's as easy as swapping the sim to the new phone, logging into your google account, and following some instructions.
