Google's smart speaker, the Google Home, which has competed with the Amazon Echo in the US, is now launching in the UK, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, and Japan this summer. From the keynote to the individual talks, this is what we're expecting to see launched.
The overview came Wednesday during Google's annual conference for thousands of computer programmers.
The event is being held at the Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountain View, California. While the company looks set to actually develop such capability, we expected that Google will give an update on this matter at Google I/O. Google Lens is also coming to the Google Photos app.
This is where the newly revealed Google Lens comes in. The KeyNote speech, if rumors are correct is not something you should miss.
GE on Wednesday announced that its Wi-Fi-connected appliances-including refrigerators, ovens, dishwashers, ranges, washers, and dryers-are now compatible with Google Home, meaning you'll be able to control your appliances with just your voice.
How can you watch the Google I/O 2017 livestream?
When is Google I/O 2017?
Aside from past year, when the company was mysteriously quiet on the matter, I/O has been Google's committed venue for discussing its own interest in VR. Maybe other companies will be making their own versions of Google Home?
We're also expecting some Google Assistant news - including its arrival on iOS and GE applicants - updates to Google Photos, and maybe some virtual reality news.
Google Assistant was slow to kick off in terms of availability, with only Pixel users in the U.S. officially supported.
Google isn't the only company investing in hardware to help with machine learning. This means that it will offer increased flexibility for developers, as they will be able to run the programs that the build using Tensorflow on more devices. Yup, it's so shiny and new we don't even know its full name yet. INQ's money is on "opal fruits". Have a gander at our run-down of the best Android O features for more info. Stay tuned for news as they become available! Take a selfie, and you'll get similar hairstyle and makeup ideas (even if you aren't wearing any makeup). In fact, the most popular version of Android right now is Android 6.0, which lives on 31.2% of devices, despite being announced way back in 2015. Other than that, the Chrome OS space has been pretty quiet. The service is an extension of Google Now.
Yes, Google finally acknowledges that voice isn't always the best option to interact with Google Assistant.
This prediction isn't exactly a stretch. Many believe, Google might officially detail the roadmap of its pet project, which is most likely to take-off around 2020.
From what Google said on stage, Assistant will have most of its features available on iPhone, from playing games and inquiring about facts to turning on and off your smart lights. Somewhat atypically, there hasn't been much leaked or rumoured ahead of the big event. In addition to that, Google now has 2 billion active Android devices.
If you're not familiar with Google I/O, it's the company's yearly developer conference.
The operating system won't be released to the mass market until later this year.
Even the new version of Android Wear for smartwatches will also be announced, as well. While you can use the app on your phone in any vehicle, there should be more compatible infotainment systems and potentially even auto partners announced at Google I/O 2017.
