Google Home: Features that will make you want to switch from Echo

Lens was announced on Wednesday during the first keynote of this year's Google I/O Developers conference. That includes all the Google app ranging from Google Chrome to YouTube.

For example, opening an e-mail with a dinner invitation might trigger a prompt to reply: "I'm in". Nobody quite matches the innovation standards of the search engine giant Google and that's the reason probably why Google is Google!

It also unveiled a second-generation computer chip it created to boost cloud-computing capabilities in data centres. The company announced the new redesign along with several other Android O features at Google I/O earlier this week. The AI is able to recognise natural language and contextual meaning to understand and interact naturally with the Assistant. To lay out each command you can ask the Assistant and preview each app that incorporates Google's voice bot into its own set of functions.

Google did not disappoint Apple users as the Google Assistant will also be coming for Apple iPhones. Though Google has said in the past that it would be looking at lowering the minimum software versions to possibly Android 4.X - though that seems to have now changed.

Google Photos will now create a photo book of the images in your mobile phone's gallery as per Google I/O 2017.

Google is bringing in a new recents menu UI in Android Go, though it doesn't look completely different from what's now being used with the other versions of the Android operating system.

One potentially unsettling new feature in Photos will let you automatically share some or all of your photos with other people.

You might remember Android One a couple years ago, a similar effort that focused on low-cost phones.

This is actually a bit different than the traditional SafetyNet checks that most of us are used to.

"You can locate your device by signing into your Google account, or even call it directly from your browser". While it is true that we want smarter devices, it is also true that we need newer devices, which Apple has missed over the last few years.
