Google's keynote focused largely on AI and machine learning with Assistant at the centre of it all. Just pull out your phone and point the lens at the restaurant's name and you will get all the information about the restaurant in an instant. Pichai gave examples of the system recognising a flower, a series of restaurants on a street in NY (and automatically pulling in their ratings and information from Google), and the network name and password for a wifi router from the back of the router itself - the phone then automatically connecting to the network. At that time, Android Pay offers only users an alternative way to pay by phone instead of having to take out their credit cards at the register at the store. Google is betting that its AI tech can set the company's cloud service offerings apart from competitor - and the company wants to ensure it won't need to rely on third-party hardware vendors to keep its AI advancing. In the Play Store, you can find all sorts of cool things to download, everything from games to music and books. Google Assistant for iPhone is available as a free app on App Store, and setting it up is as easy as installing any other app like Instagram or Facebook. But none of those things are at the top of the list of the best new features coming to Android phones.
Google is also adding a feature to Photos to create soft-cover and hard-cover albums of pictures at prices beginning at $9.99.
There's even more, Google is now getting more serious about mobile payment.
At last year's I/O, Googleunveiled Home, a smart-home speaker and answer to the Amazon Echo. Google has so much data about each of its users that Assistant is able to do things no rival solution can.
"The user simply says, I want to talk to Panera", Capiel said. There's also an option here to enable SafetyNet exclusion here as well. You can ask Assistant to send someone money, and Assistant will use the API to send the amount you mention.
The most interesting feature of the new API is the Google Assistant integration. The app's AI looks at photos you've taken that you've not shared, and decide which ones the people in them might want to see - which Google says will help you be "not a awful person". There's also an "Explore" button for you to get tips for using Google's AI.
Google Photos is adding a new tool that will prompt you to share photos you take of people you know. For instance, point the phone at a flower and Assistant will call upon Lens to identify the type of flower.
Trump Denies Pressuring Comey to End Flynn Probe
In the memo, which ABC News has not seen, Comey wrote that he was asked by the president to let the Flynn probe go in February. Meanwhile, at home, other investigations into Russian Federation will move forward.
Google whittled down the 57 finalists to choose the best app or game across 12 categories - and the winners include some familiar faces. Android O will also likely increase Android devices' battery life, through efficiency enhancements to the way the operating system computes. Now that Google I/O has started, the company is rolling out new features to a large number of their services and the Google Play Console is one of those services.
However, industry experts are little positive with Android GO.
That being said, Google will be looking to target Indian handset manufacturers like Micromax, Lava, and Karbonn to develop smartphones with Android GO. The ideal route will be - Android 8.0 will debut with the 2017 upgrades of the Pixel line, meaning the device rollout and the OS deployment could happen simultaneously, and then the original Pixels are next in line.
This can be considered a single new device announcement at the event. It's working with HTC (the smartphone company behind the Vive VR headset) and Lenovo to build standalone VR headsets that don't rely on a smartphone for their power.
Another notable AI project is AutoML, a research project under the Google.ai effort.
The future of smartphones is more clear now than it ever has been before: There is no future for smartphones.
