What we learned about Google Home at Google I/O 2017

Javier Burns | 18 May, 2017, 01:23

For the second year in progress, Google's enormous I/O developer event will occur at the Shoreline Amphitheater.

Google says that Android Go will basically be a lightweight version of the upcoming Android O, but created to run on smartphones that have 1 GB, or even 512 MB, of RAM.

If you don't have Whirlpool appliances in your home, odds are a lot of them are branded GE-branded instead.

The company announced a new computer-vision platform, Google Lens, which could give our smartphone cameras even more power. Lastly, we're also getting support from the free version of Spotify so that you don't need a Premium account to play music right off the Google Home. We'll most likely find out about new abilities, also - prior today, the reports detailed that Google would convey its Voice Assistant to the iPhone and begin incorporating it with GE's home machines.

To follow up on last year's Android Nougat, Google has already released a developer preview for Android O. We don't yet know what O stands for, but it is nearly a certainty that Google will give us a sneak peek at what to expect from the next Android that'll run on our smartphones. It's no surprise that Google is expanding its AI-powered assistant to more platforms, it was only a matter of time before it did that.

The climber then stepped one foot off the beam and held on to the cable with one hand as his body hung over the bridge. Locati said the bridge's security system was "not created to protect thrill-seekers from harming themselves".

Making Google Assistant available on iPhone means Google is pretty confident even Apple acolytes will convert from Siri to Assistant if they are given a taste of what Google has to offer. Siri has come as a built-in service on iPhones since 2011; Google's assistant will require an app download.

What's more, Google Photos now has over 500 million monthly users uploading 1.2 billion images daily.

In addition to Android smartphones, third-party actions will also be available on the iOS version of the Google Assistant that the Alphabet-owned company just announced. So Google will talk about this feature in the event. Unlike with Google Home or the Google Pixel, however, users won't be able to launch Google Assistant using a voice command without having the app open in front of them, which limits how useful and hands-free it can be. Android O: Google is expected to introduce a new operating system after Android Nougat this year.

AI is driving all of the major players in tech, including Microsoft, Amazon, Apple and Facebook but Google's knowledge graph has so much data to work with.

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

Google is also planning a slimmed down version of Android for low-end phones, primarily used in the developing world.
