Google gets you info by pointing camera at it

The overview came Wednesday during Google's annual conference for thousands of computer programmers. Google is releasing its voice-controlled assistant on a free app designed for iPhone's operating system - basically competing with Apple's assistant on her own turf. Another big change to Google Home is the ability to make hands-free calls to the U.S. or Canada for free. Apps will load faster, background processes will be shut down to prevent unnecessary resource hogging and any unnecessary stuff will be shut down and certain new features will reduce the number of steps to execute a task-all this will be part of the performance.

Amid Fluid Experiences, includes features such as picture-in-picture, which Google VP Engineering (Android), Dave Burke described as an automatic multi-window.

The smart assistant, which now runs on 100 million devices, will soon be available for the iPhone, letting the assistant live alongside Apple's Siri.

Sharing Features and Photo Books with Google Photos: In the coming weeks, Google will be adding new sharing features to its Photos iOS app.

Google Assistant will start letting you order and buy things, thanks to an update to the tools Google makes available to developers.

Android Go is meant to work on phones used by many people in emerging countries, for example.




It's no secret that Android runs less than optimally on low-end hardware, and Google is attempting to tackle that problem with a new platform called Android Go. Google will also let you share whole photos libraries with others.

Google Assistant is the equivalent to Apple's Siri and Amazon's Alexa. For instance, if you point your phone at a restaurant, Google will give you the rating for it.

In addition to improving the natural language over the Assistant and Home, Google announced new ways to communicate with the device. Using this initiative, manufacturers were able to create cheap smartphones that received Android updates as quickly as Nexus or Pixel devices would.

Wednesday's keynote takes place at an outdoor theater near the company's Mountain View, California, headquarters.

The Google Play Store also has a new version designed for Android Go, highlighting apps specifically developed for Go or meeting its data- and power-conscious requirements. "The new chip can train neural networks at a rate several times faster than existing processors, cutting times from as much as day down to several hours", says Jeff Dean, who heads Google Brain.
