From an extra Charging Speaker Dock to a USI 2.0 compatible stylus for jotting down notes to a magnetic folio case, we've curated some of the best Google Pixel Tablet accessories that'll help you take your experience with Google's newest tablet to the next level. Read all about them and take your pick(s).
These are the best Google Pixel Tablet accessories
Why you can trust Android Central
Google's own Pixel Tablet Charging Speaker Dock is one of the most crucial accessories you can get. Dock your Pixel tablet and it transforms into a smart home hub, all while simultaneously getting charged wirelessly. As its name suggests, the dock also features a full-range speaker that lets you enjoy all your music and videos with amazing sound. Although it's included with the tablet, you can grab a second one for another part of your home. It's available in three colors: Rose, Hazel, and Porcelain.
Best wired charger
While it's true that the Pixel Tablet can be juiced up wirelessly, you can't take that charging dock everywhere. This is where this fast charger from Superer comes into the picture. Having a maximum power output of 30W, it can fast charge not only your Pixel Tablet but also your smartphone (regardless of brand, as long as it supports USB-PD charging) and other gadgets. You get a 6-feet long USB-C cable with the adapter, and the whole package is backed by a one-year warranty.
Best wireless keyboard
A good wireless keyboard is essential if you want to get some real work done on your Google Pixel Tablet, and our vote goes to Logitech's K780. Among the best multi-device keyboards out there, it can be used seamlessly with the Pixel Tablet, as well as other devices like your Windows PC and smartphone. Switching between a maximum of three devices is simple, thanks to the one-touch access buttons on the top of the keyboard. The K780 uses Bluetooth and a USB receiver for wireless connectivity and also has a built-in stand for holding the device upright.
While it's intended primarily for Chromebooks, the Penoval USI 2.0 Stylus Pen works perfectly with the Pixel Tablet as well. This is because the Pixel Tablet fully supports the USI 2.0 protocol. It comes with 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity and is made with aluminum alloy for extra strength. The stylus comes with USB-C port for charging and can be used for up to 90 hours after a 50 minute charge. It's cone-like tip makes for more stable writing and there's palm rejection technology included in the mix too.
Best wireless mouse
Your Bluetooth keyboard will work well with the Pixel tablet, but that setup is going to be incomplete without Logitech's M535 wireless mouse. This little thing is compatible with just about any tablet, laptop, or PC, as long as there's Bluetooth. The M535 can go up to 10 months before needing a battery replacement and features a navigation button that can be programmed with a companion application. You have two colors — Black and Blue — to choose from.
Best adjustable stand
Certified by Google, Wasserstein's adjustable Stand is a sturdy and durable stand that comes with a non-slippery base. It lets you adjust your Pixel tablet at multiple viewing angles with little to no effort, all while being compact enough to be easily carried anywhere, thanks to its folding design. It's worth noting that the stand only works when you have the tablet docked to Google's own speaker dock that comes bundled with the device. It has a vertical tilt angle of 40 degrees, though we would've loved to have more some more color options other than Black.
Best screen protector
Supershieldz needs no introduction when it comes to screen protectors, and its tempered glass offerings are a must-have for your Google Pixel tablet. The combo pack features two screen protectors that are made from high-quality materials with a 9H hardness rating, and also have 2.5D rounded edges for added comfort as you interact with the tablet's touch screen. They do a great job of keeping away smudges and fingerprints as well, without affecting the display's visual clarity or touch response.
Best folio case
Designed especially for the Pixel tablet, Speck's MagFolio case is a fantastic accessory for your new tablet. It sports a magnetic foldable stand that lets you prop up your Pixel Tablet's display at any angle you want. The magnetic closure prevents damage to the device in case of drops and you also get raised edges to keep the camera safe from scuffs and scratches. Putting on and taking off the case is a walk in the park, and it doesn't interfere with the magnetic attachment or wireless charging functions.
Best slim cover
If you're not a fan of third-party accessories, we suggest taking a gander at Google's own Pixel Tablet case. It's made using dirt-resistant silicone and features raised edges to protect the front panel from any and all kinds of damage. While that's good, what makes this thing stand out (quite literally) is the polished metal ring at the back that lets you prop up the tablet conveniently at any angle. Also, since it has the same outer perimeter shape as the speaker dock, you can dock the tablet without taking off the case. There are three colors — Rose, Hazel, and Porcelain — for you to choose from.
Enhance your Google Pixel Tablet experience with these accessories
Google has done a great job with the Pixel Tablet, and it won't be an exaggeration to say that it's one of the best Android tablets currently available. Powered by the Tensor G2 SoC, it features the clean software experience we've come to expect from Pixel devices, as well as tight integration with all of Google's apps and services. The fact that it comes with a bundled speaker dock and doubles up as a smart home hub makes it an even better overall package. However, with one of these best Google Pixel Tablet accessories, you can take up your experience with this thing to the next level.
It's easy to recommend Google's own Charging Speaker Dock as our top pick, even if you already get it bundled when you buy the Pixel tablet. That's because you can get one (or a few) more and keep them in different places around your home. There are three awesome colors that are identical to the shades of the tablet itself for you to pick from.
The 10.95-inch LCD display of your Pixel Tablet needs proper protection to keep its good looks, which is why we suggest getting the Supershieldz tempered glass combo pack. It comes with two screen protectors that have a 9H hardness rating, and they do a great job of shielding the tablet's display from damage. In addition to that, you might want to consider getting Speck's MagFolio case or Google's own case for your Pixel Tablet. The former is a better option if you intend on taking the tablet with you out of the house regularly, while the latter will work just fine if you plan on using the tablet mostly at home, primarily because it works great with the charging speaker dock. Do check out our collection of the best Pixel Tablet cases if you want even more variety.
Lastly, we suggest getting a USI 2.0 stylus so you can take notes and sketch on your Google Pixel Tablet whenever you want to, with the Penoval USI 2.0 Stylus Pen being an amazing option.
