From work to play
Get things done and entertain yourself from anywhere. Easily and quickly switch between creating and editing documents, browsing the web, watching films and listening to music.
A tablet that listens
Use your voice to get things done. Say “OK Google” to ask a question, send an email, set a reminder, get directions or whatever you need to do.
Get more out of your Android tablet
Turn your mobile device into a portable Wi-Fi hotspot and share its Internet connection with up to 10 other devices at once.
