Going back in the past, it was Apple who first came up with the concept of the Slip view feature. It had also included it in the iOS 9 this year itself. But the feature was kept limited to only a handful of tablet versions. Some of them were the iPad Air 2, iPad Pro, and iPad mini 4. Talking more about the interview conducted in this direction, more questions were asked and answered as well. When asked about the Pixel’s C name, Glen Murphy, Director of UX for Android and Chrome, told in detail about the difference between the Pixels and Nexus brands.

Other questions asked were with regards to why Google took the decision of leaving support for the “OK Google” when the screen is put off for the Pixel C. Replying to this, yet another person, Kevin Tom, who is the Product Manager for Pixel C, explained that company has never stopped lending its support. Instead, it was also in terms of working with the OK Google support and also worked on the future update of the same. The Google’s Pixel C Tablet was a hot favorite amongst the audience and it was sold for about $499 just after two months of its release. Hence, you can estimate the craze people had for this model and it is surely going to rule the markets in coming months.
