The hardware shop will sell Google Pixel 2 smartphones, Google Home and Google Home Mini smart speakers, Pixel Buds, Daydream View VR headsets and a variety of customizable smartphone cases.

Also new is the ability to double-tap on the right earbud to skip the song you're listening to.

This comes in the form of new gestures, such as the triple tap on the right earbud that will let users turn the earbuds on or off. The update rolls out beginning today and should be available to most users by early next week.
