Google I/O 2017: Interesting facts and numbers from the conference

We have all of the latest details about Android Go, including how it will work and the specifications that the operating system will have.

The company also announced Actions on Google today, a new platform that will support third party integrations that will allow users to make transactions through Assistant. Boot time on O is twice as fast as in previous versions of Android for devices using Pixel and apps will also run faster. But Samat said the changes coming with Android Go will convince the hardware partners to change course. The service was created to tailor the latest Android operating system for phones costing around $100 or less. Stuff like the address of the restaurant shown in the background will be easily accessible thanks to Google's new smart camera software technology. The next version of Android, available to the mass market later this year, aims to gauge and control how much battery life your apps are using. It's not a new feature, but Google emphasizes its importance as a part of Play Protect. In fact, Google has decided to make an Android Go version for all Android operating systems beginning with Android O. For instance, if you ask Google Home to see what's on your agenda for Saturday, it can use Chromecast to send your schedule to your television screen.

Google Photos will be able to suggest which photos to share and whom to share them with. The new feature will be available inside the Google app - you just need to type out "x$3 jobs" and the algorithms will get to working, matching whatever Google knows about you with your location and open job positions in your area.

Google Home review - the future of the home?




The Alexa assistant on Amazon's Echo has already learned to perform thousands of different tasks. Google is doing that with the site Google.ai, which focuses specifically on three pillars: state of the art research, tools and infrastructure, and applied AI. "The time is right to take the investment to the next level", said Sameer Samat, a Google executive leading Android and Play efforts, at the Google I/O developer conference.

Both assistants can be summoned with a press of a button to answer questions, manage schedules and handle other routine tasks.

Google Play product manager Ellie Powers said there are 50 instant apps in the wild already, and that the companies behind them have seen notable lifts in sales and engagement. So you could use Lens to help get you concert tickets just by pointing your camera at a concert billboard or find reviews about a book you are holding. So the video will stay with you while you do other things on your device.
