Google has now officially confirmed that it won’t make Pixel tablets anymore. This clearly means that Pixel Slate might be Google’s last tablet. The confirmation of discontinuation of tablets from Google is announced by the company’s hardware head Rick Osterloh. He mentioned that the company will primarily focus on the company’s laptop lineup.
The company introduced Pixel Slate back in October last year along with the Pixel 3 phones. Before that, the company had introduced Pixel C tablet back in 2015, which was discontinued in 2017. At that time the company said that it will focus on Pixelbook. And now, the company finally take back step from the manufacturing of the tablets and will not produce tablets anymore
Hey, it's true…Google's HARDWARE team will be solely focused on building laptops moving forward, but make no mistake, Android & Chrome OS teams are 100% committed for the long-run on working with our partners on tablets for all segments of the market (consumer, enterprise, edu)

People who were working on the tablet have been shifted over to the laptop division. A new Pixelbook laptop is expected to release along with the Pixel 4 later this year. This will be the successor of the original Pixelbook which was released back in 2017.
In the statement delivered by Rick Osterloh, he mentioned that the Android and Chrome OS teams will be working with their partners to work on tablets for consumer, enterprise and educational segments. For the Pixel Slate users, the company has promised to deliver software updates at least until June 2024.
