Google came out with their new Chromecast with Google TV as their opener. They worked their way into YouTube Music and the New Nest Audio smart speaker. Then they made their way introducing the new Pixel 4a 5G and the Pixel 5G phones. Not much with regards to Stadia this time, but it had an honorable mention. I think Google was finding a way to bring you entertainment wherever you are.
