It has been just over four months since Sundar Pichai, the longtime head of Google’s Chrome and Chrome OS projects, added Android to his stable. Google invited reporters to a “breakfast” meeting Tuesday morning in San Francisco, and we were there to live blog it starting around 9am PT.

As expected Pichai and other Google employees showed off a new version of the Nexus 7 tablet, which has already leaked out on the web — it’s even up for pre-order at Best Buy(s bbuy) already –  and will likely have other Android goodies to discuss.

The company also unveiled the Chromecast, a $35 device that plugs into a TV’s HDMI port and allows you to use your mobile devices or laptops as a remote control to get content from YouTube, Netflix, and other partners on your big screen TV.

We’ll have much more on today’s announcements later.
