We anticipate a variety of announcements from Google I/O, including potentially the release of some brand-new Pixel series hardware devices. What you said you were most looking forward to is listed below.

We’ll get right to the point as we anticipated this. The Google Pixel Watch is the I/O product reveal that is most anticipated. We can’t blame the overwhelming 64.7% of you who responded to our initial survey and expressed interest in the first-party Wear OS watch.

Were eager to learn how the Pixel Watch will differ from the current Galaxy Watch 4 series after some hands-on leaks and proof provided by the Wear OS emulator. Reader jimmy is so eager that they intend to purchase two units when they go on sale, however this is obviously highly dependant on whether Google chooses to release the wearable at all.

Considering that the Pixel 6a only received 15.2% of your vote, we were shocked by the winning margin. Google’s teased #teampixel with a tweet strongly suggests that a Pixel hardware device will be introduced at Google I/O. Even though the Pixel 6a still looks more probable, this time it doesn’t seem as crucial based on your responses. The Pixel Watch is the device that reader Brian is most looking forward to, but he won’t be purchasing it on launch day since he’ll be picking up the Pixel 6a instead after a family member’s Pixel 3a XL just suffered water damage.

After the Pixel Slate didn’t quite take off as it should have, we believed Google had abandoned the tablet format. So it’s unexpected that 9.5% of you, dear readers, said you’re looking forward to the I/O 2022 product introduction of the Nest Tablet. Although reader Rudy brought up a good argument about wanting a 7-inch Android tablet, we don’t believe that such a device will ever be released.

Even though there isn’t much evidence to imply that Google will introduce any audio devices at I/O, the fact that just 6.3% of you are hoping to see Pixel Buds Pro is surprising. We anticipated that more of our readers would desire an improved audio experience given the audio cut-out problem that existed with the original 2022 Buds.

With only 4.2% of the vote share, the Chromecast HD came in last place. The concept of a less priced Chromecast with Google TV obviously doesn’t appeal to our readership, but it might be a good alternative for individuals who do not need a more expensive 4K-capable streamer.

What do you think the outcomes are? Do they match the hardware items you’re hoping to see introduced at I/O 2022? Please share your thoughts in the comments box below. During the entire two-day conference, we will undoubtedly see a number of announcements and unveilings that are unrelated to hardware, so stay tuned.
