Google’s new flagship phones, the Pixel 2 and 2 XL, are set to launch tomorrow, October 19.

With devices beginning to arrive at publications and influencers, Marques Brownlee has taken to YouTube to give us a first look at what unboxing the new devices looks like. Marques then shares his first impressions, not just of the phone’s hardware and accessories, but of the new software.

In a roundup of the best features, Marques highlights Android’s new “Now Playing” feature, where your phone tells you what song is playing around you before you even have a chance to ask it. Other cool additions include “Google Lens,” “Picture in Picture” for YouTube, and surprisingly, the new wallpapers.

Watch the unboxing and roundup of the best features above.
