Google brings Assistant to iPhone in challenge to Apple's Siri

Postado Mai 19, 2017

With the new Google Home calling feature, users will be able to make phone calls in the USA and Canada for free, but won't be able to call other Home devices.

In the conference, Google revealed its plans for the Android O Beta and unveiled the second developer preview for it.

Android Go is basically a light version of Android with optimised apps and Play Store.

Google is expected to give the crowd a look at new twists in its Android software for mobile devices. The I/O has always been a conference for developers and consequently is not event where the big bang, most exciting announcements are made by Google.

Google said the expansion of the Assistant to the iPhone and various other third-party products should increase its reach beyond the current 100 million devices. It will also come with an advanced version of Background limits, aggressively managing apps that are running in the background which leads to saving more battery juice for users. Some of the new features include Picture in picture, Adaptive icons, Autofill Framework, Background limits, Notifications and many others.

When you select the text which is an address, there will be the options which pop up like cut, copy & paste.

At I/O, Google has outlined some of the features in Google I/O under the security enhancements which are created to keep you, and your devices safe. It automatically takes action to keep your data and device safe.

Through machine learning, the feature will detect apps that behave unusually and remove them from the device.

Apps that have been optimised for Android Go devices will be highlighted in the Google Play Store, though the Store will also offer the full library of Android apps available for regular phones. "Google Play Protect is available out-of-the-box on every Android device with Google Play", Google said in a statement.
