The Logitech K580 Wireless Keyboard, Chrome OS Edition and the Logitech M355 Portable Wireless Mouse are the company's first products adorned with a 'Made for Google' moniker. The peripheral maker is touting the 'modern, precise and ultra-quiet' combo as the 'perfect partners' for your Pixelbook.
Both feature dual wireless connectivity via both a USB receiver and Bluetooth. The battery on the keyboard will last you up to 36 months, while you can go up to 18 months without a charge on the mouse. Both also include an automatic battery saving mode for when they're not in use.
Coming to the 'Made for Google' tag, the keyboard features a dedicated Google Assistant key and a row of Chrome OS keyboard shortcuts to go with your Google-made Pixelbook or Pixel Slate.
The keyboard is, otherwise, identical to the Windows and macOS-supporting product of the same name in the company's current lineup. Like that keyboard, it also has a built-in cradle at the top to house your Android phone. You can also share the keyboard between multiple devices, with the company's Easy-Switch technology allowing you to cycle through them via a dedicated key.
The mouse seems to be a replica of Logitech's M350.
The pair are available starting today at the Google Store and at Logitech's website. They'll leave a $29.99 and a $49.99 hole in your pocket for the mouse and the keyboard, respectively.
