Google teases ‘something big’ coming to Pixel on May 7th

The May 7th tease coincides with the start of Google I/O 2019

Google 'Help is on the way' teaser

Google updated its website today with a tease that something big is coming to the Pixel universe.

Alongside the tease, the search giant rolled out new Avengers: Endgame Playmoji for its Playground AR camera feature and an Endgame-themed ad.

The teaser page says “Help is on the way,” and points to May 7th as the date when “something big” will come to the Pixel universe.

That day coincides with Google I/O 2019, so this could be a hint towards an announcement at I/O. It could also refer to rumoured Pixel 3a and 3a XL. Interestingly, the purple could hint at the rumoured third coloud of the Pixel 3a.
