Last year at the 2022 Google IO conference, Google hinted at its first Android-powered tablet. At the time, Google said the tablet will come with a charging dock and speaker that lets you use it like a smart device.


One year on at the Google IO 2023 event, the team were pleased to see that Google had kept its word: the Pixel Tablet is available to pre-order from today (Wednesday 10th May), and it comes with a Charging Speaker Dock to offer you fantastic sounding music and video streaming, as well as to charge your tablet.

While one dock comes with the Google Pixel Tablet, there’s the option to purchase additional docks and enable Hub Mode in rooms throughout your home.

The Google Pixel Tablet is engineered to make everyday life easier. It can control your smart home hands free, and the apps you love – such as Disney Plus and Spotify – are available on the tablet, so it's ideal for dancing around your kitchen!

The Google Pixel Tablet is the first tablet to be powered by the Google Tensor G2 chip and to be protected by the Titan M2 security chip. The Google Tensor G2 chip makes the tablet the perfect companion to your Pixel phone, and great for playing games like Minecraft or Asphalt 9.

Here’s everything you need to know about the brand new Google Pixel Tablet, including how to pre-order today.

If there was one positive thing we’ve continued from lockdown, it’s video calling our loved ones – and with the Google Pixel Tablet, it’s never been easier to stay in touch with those you don’t see as often as you’d like. The device comes equipped with Google Meet, and the HD video calling platform automatically adjusts lighting to keep you brightly lit (and looking your best) at all times, and the camera also automatically follows you around the room.
