At the Google I/O 2019 keynote event, CEO Sundar Pichai explained Google's mission when it comes to hardware products by saying "They all share a single goal: to be helpful, so we can be there for you big and small over the course of your day." At the Made by Google 2019 Event, Google Senior Vice President of Devices and Services Rick Osterloh echoed this sentiment. Google calls this idea ambient computing and it means Google wants to be in your life all of the time, whenever you need it, in a way that feels natural.
