Tech Now: Father’s Day Gifts from Google

Connection is the best gift you can give on Father’s Day. No matter who the father figures are in your life – a Dad who loves to talk with his loved ones, someone who loves listening to his favourite tunes, or a globetrotter.

Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro  
  • Pixel 6 is the best-priced smartphone on the market for the level of features, security, and personalisation it offers – considerably cheaper than comparable iPhones
  • Pixel’s powerful camera offers an Ultrawide lens, Real Tone, Cinematic Pan and Night Sight are just a few features, perfect for him to take family pictures and videos
  • The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro comes with a 50MP rear camera, an 8MP front camera on Pixel 6, and an even more impressive 11.1MP on the Pixel 6 Pro – making it the most advanced camera on the market to capture brilliant photos in vivid detail
  • The one-of-a-kind Magic Eraser tool is the perfect way for him to make distractions in family pictures and vacations disappear, with just a few taps
  • Tensor is Google’s first ever custom made chip – and it helps to make many applications even more intelligent and adds an extra layer of hardware security for worrisome Dads.
  • Pixel’s Live Translate will help him become “almost fluent” in different languages when on holidays abroad – avoiding those awkward Dad conversations
  • HD screen sharing in Duo video calls means that everyone can watch the same video, cheer on live sports together, or plan activities. Great for him to stay connected with his mates and far-away family
  • Pixel’s Adaptive Battery remembers what your favourite apps are and reduces power to the rarely used ones, helping his battery last on even the busiest of days

Nest Hub (2nd gen)


  • The newest Nest Hub is the ultimate Father’s Day gift, with everything your Dad needs to stay entertained, get on top of his tasks, and wake up refreshed
  • Sleep Sensing improves the way he sleeps by tracking his patterns. It detects disturbances like coughing and snoring, or even the light and temperature changes in the room, helping offer personalised insights and sleep recommendations
  • The new Nest Hub’s speaker has 50% more bass for an even better listening experience. Just ask Google to play songs, podcasts and audiobooks, or show TV and films
  • If cooking is your Dad’s passion, he can access millions of recipes and how-to videos from the best sous-chef, letting you stay hands-free by pausing with Motion Sense and setting timers with your voice
  • All your connected devices are in one place, making it easy to switch on the lights, or turn up the thermostat – as well as see his calendar, and create reminders, so everyone stays on track

Google Nest Audio

  • Nest Audio is a music lover’s dream, ready for classic 80’s jams or listen to his favourite football podcasts – or whatever he’s into – in great sound
  • Integrated Google Assistant helps with entertaining guests, from playing party tunes to reminders for getting the BBQ ready
  • As Dad moves across rooms, stream transfer easily moves the music with him, and Ambient IQ adjusts the volume based on background noise
  • Sustainably designed, the enclosure is made of 70% recycled materials and its sleek design slots perfectly into any décor
  • And if he wants to really crank up the volume, he can wirelessly connect other Nest speakers to create his very own home stereo
