Google has just announced that it will be holding a streaming launch event on Wednesday, September 30th. The online event is set for 11AM PT (or 2PM ET), at which Google says we'll learn about new Chromecast, smart speaker, and Pixel hardware, almost all of which has leaked ahead of the upcoming event.
Invitations for the event are being sent as we speak. Though we were originally told it would be press-only, that appears to be incorrect: Google is making the event accessible to the public. Usually, Google live-streams its fall Made By Google event for public viewing.
Leaks regarding the Pixel 5 and the "Chromecast with Google TV" have been picking up in recent days, and while it was obvious an announcement would be soon, the yearly Made By Google event typically happens a little later in October. Based on the details of the invitation, we should expect to hear more about Google's upcoming Pixel hardware, probably including the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5, as well as the previously leaked new Nest speaker seemingly replacing the discontinued Google Home, and the long-rumored first-party Android TV code-named Sabrina, which picked up a more convoluted Chromecast with Google TV name in more recent leaks. September 30th also matches Target's leaked availability date for the dongle, so we might see some products go on sale that very day.
Members of the press are being invited to RSVP for the event as we speak, and you can anticipate Android Police's live coverage of everything Google has to reveal come September 30th at 11AM PT/2PM ET.
