  1. With the pixel having a skin on top of android does this mean "stock android" is dead? I at least liked how nexus phones offered an android the way google intended it experience. But now that they have their phones skinned what is going to come of the stock android experience? Is the google assistant going to eventually roll out to everyone with google now? or will google assistant be exclusive to high end pixel phones and phones with google now will simply cease to have any functional assistant
