Google poised to roll out arsenal of services, gadgets

It is expected that Google Assistant will be seen on more and more hardware.

I wouldn't consider this much of a "move" on the part of Google to dethrone Siri in her own territory, but more of a decision to introduce another option to iOS users when it comes to virtual assistants.

Google Assistant, company's AI-based voice assistant will now be available for iPhones. The difference is that it won't come pre-installed on the iPhone, a potential barrier to wide adoption. We'll likely observe organizations to get the Assistant's compatibility to more number of smart home equipment and better courses for third-party designers to coordinate with Google's voice assistant. So Google might have news for us about this tech. Photos previous year got the AI integration so the service could automatically create albums by combining relevant and related images. Google will also enable the creation of physical "coffee table books" through the app. Facebook has a similar offering in its Moments app.

Google I/O 2017 has been absolutely packed with announcements, but the company isn't done yet. The news service also reports that Assistant will be built into General Electric (GE) home appliances "such as refrigerators, dishwashers, ovens, washers and dryers".

Through Google Assistant, you will be able to do other things like point the camera at the show times outside a cinema, and tell it to remember that particular event.

A Google spokesperson declined to comment. Developer preview has an early version of this as Google are looking for feedback. So Google will talk about this feature in the event.

Further, he explains that nearly 70 per cent requests made to Google Assistant are in natural languages and not keywords.

Android Go is basically a "skinny" version of Android "O," the next operating system from Google. There are now over 2 billion active Android devices in the world. Brady said Android Auto now runs on 300 vehicle models. But having the capacity to rapidly stack run a full Android application by tapping on a URL could make life a great deal comfortable for Android users. Also, the company will add more customizable features to it. Brady said this fusion of apps and controls inside a vehicle is necessary.

The operating system won't be released to the mass market until later this year.

Each Android software vehicle partner will have the ability to customise the controls, interface, and applications pre-loaded into the operating system, the company said.

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.

Yet Google executives said the software will not reach to instruments critical to auto safety - it's keeping YouTube off the screen, for instance, given the risk to distracting drivers.

Google added features to its internet-connected Home speaker - such as hands-free calling. Essentially, near about every device can now be controlled using either Google Home or the Assistant provided the developers have tailored for it. The battle for the smart home is well underway.
