Google poised to roll out arsenal of services, gadgets

Yep you guessed it, this one is U.S. and Canada only, for now at least.

Promising to make Android "even more useful", Burke announced a beta release of the operation system's newest version, Android O. Its formal release is scheduled for "later this year". It will let third-party device makers inject the conversational technology into devices like dish washers, door locks, and vacuum cleaners.

"With AI, all the apps are getting upgraded so they don't need new hardware". With Google Play Protect, Google is bringing this front and centre so that users are well informed. Google is releasing its voice-controlled assistant on a free app designed for iPhone's operating system, basically competing with Apple's assistant on her own turf. This immediately makes Assistant available to hundreds of millions more people, and it will give Apple loyalists a taste of Google's AI skills. By then, Google will name the system after a dessert or sweet-tasting snack beginning with the letter "O" as part of a years-old tradition. Let's get some Netflix and Spotify support going!

We will be testing this out on the Google Home as soon as we're, well, Home.

Google has also announced, including Bluetooth connectivity and hands-free calling.

Google wants to take VR mainstream with standalone headsets: Facebook Inc.'s Oculus Rift and HTC Corp.'s Vive are cool products. Google will also let you share whole photo libraries with others.

Google did not say whether you can switch a call from Google Home to a smartphone - or vice versa.

This all sounds great in theory (and certainly trumps the Echo), but as Google Now has never quite lived up to its promise, we'll reserve judgement till we see it in action.

Samsung is trying some of that with its new Bixby Vision feature on the Galaxy S8 phones.

Assistant will also (as previously mentioned) get Google Lens baked in to allow it to answer questions using visual context. You can also program Assistant to send reminders. In fact, Google has chose to make an Android Go version for all Android operating systems beginning with Android O. They include an updated version of the picture-in-picture mode (below) already available on some Android phones, which opens the door for multitasking opportunities like browsing the web while you're on a video call.

Other back-end improvements will help Android O launch apps faster with no additional programming work from their developers. It's also prime for those in environments with slow data connections. Interestingly, with Android having 2 billion users around the globe, the service scans 50 billion apps on a daily basis.
