Google previews Android O, plans lightweight Android Go

So Google has now announced support for a different programming language called the Kotlin.

A new service called Google Lens will give Assistant a new power.

The device, launched in the United Kingdom a year ago, will be able to offer calls, hands-free, direct from the device to any number, initially in the U.S., with plans to extend worldwide.

Now, Google is drawing upon that treasure trove to teach new tricks to its digital assistant, which debuted previous year on its Pixel phone and an internet-connected speaker called Home that is trying to mount a challenge to Amazon's Echo.

Google cautions users that this is an early release and is therefore not intended for "daily or consumer use". He said if his wife would have said the same thing, Google Home would have called Rishi Chandra's mother-in-law. The Assistant works directly from your device only if you have an Android-powered one. Google maintains the feature will be smart enough so that you would auto-share only specific photos - say, of your kids - to your partner or a friend. This is a pretty useful feature for those who uses Google Assistant in a crowded place.

And there will be a version of the Play Store that highlights apps specifically designed for the next billion users coming online while still offering the entire app catalog.

Find My Device is part of another effort by Google to up its Android security game, Google Play Protect. Google also indicated that new and updated processors will be required to take advantage of TensorFlow Lite. It also has new options when selecting text, like a Maps option for when users select addresses. This feature will help the users minimise the video so that the video only covers a little portion of the mobile screen.

At its developper coference I/O Google released a lot of information, among others more info abou the upcoming Andoid O. The first public beta is available towards Pixel adn Nexus owners. The latest claim from Google is that of the Android O operating system taking half the time to reboot than in the past versions of Android.

In October 2016, Google launched Daydream View, a VR headset that's comfortable and easy to use.

Google Photos will now create a photo book of the images in your mobile phone's gallery as per Google I/O 2017. Google also revealed Assistant will support typed input if you're on of those people who gets squeamish about talking to an AI.

Also, Google introduced new tools like system optimizations, background apps limits for developers along with Android Vitals Dashboards in the Play Console. People sharing the photo album will also have a provision to limit their photos to the selected people.
