In line with the launch of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, Google also unveiled its Chinese-language Google Assistant, making Taiwan the first outlet to utilize the smart voice assistant in Chinese. While pre-orders are already shipping, you can now buy either of the third-generation Pixel phones directly from the Google Store, Project Fi, or from Verizon in the USA, while United Kingdom readers will have to wait until November 1st to splash the cash.
