Google Pixel has recently announced a new partnership with Tennis Australia to become the Official Smartphone and Official Camera of the Australian Open. Alongside Tennis Australia, agency partner 72andSunny and media partners PHD and MFG are helping elevate Google Pixel’s presence at this prestigious sporting event with a new film released today.
The AI powered camera of the Google Pixel will give fans unprecedented access and never before seen footage of the Australian Open. The partnership will unlock new in-play viewing angles, showcase iconic AO moments and allow fans to get closer to the players and the action, both on-court and behind the scenes, through a unique #PixelPerspective.

With the most advanced Pixel to date, the Pixel 8 Pro will give fans unprecedented access to all the action, and help deliver a unique and memorable fan experience at this iconic event.”

Our Pixel sponsorship film directed by Dave Wood from Goodoil, music by Zimbabwean-Australian rapper Tkay Maidza, along with our spectacular LED billboards, share the fun and energy of the event known as ‘The Happy Slam’.
