Google weaves AI and machine learning into core products at I/O 2017

Posted May 18, 2017

Last year Google announced support to cast YouTube, Netflix, and Google Photos to your television using nothing but your voice.

Facebook has been trying to address this issue as well with its Moments app, which lets people share photos with friends and family privately, without posting them to a wider audience.

Ahead of I/O, Google is showing off its next step in automotive software: an Android version of touchscreen vehicle consoles and infotainment systems.

Tomorrow most tech eyes will be on Mountain View for the launch of Google I/O 2017.

Android O is set to be the most exciting update yet, packed to the top with new features which developers and users can't wait to get their hands on.

Besides, Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google will be addressing the keynote of Google I/O 2017 from 10:30 PM, and then it will be followed by the Developer Keynote which is scheduled to begin at 1:30 AM.

The addition of support for the free version of Spotify as well as SoundClound and Deezer will be welcomed by many, as will the update that means Google Home can be used as a Bluetooth speaker for streaming. So the company is also adding the ability to type requests to the Assistant on your phone, starting today.

Curious? While Google didn't reveal Android O's launch date-or what the "O" stands for-the company is releasing a beta version of the Developer's Preview today. It's essentially a super-powered version of Google Goggles that does way more than just do a search based on what you take a photo of.

Soon, Google Assistant users will be able to have a conversation based on what they see via Google Lens app. Users can simply point their smartphone camera at a subject and ask the Assistant for relevant information about it. Siri has come as a built-in service on iPhones since 2011; Google's assistant will require an app download. Users will also be able to link their own numbers to the device.

Google says you can also choose to share entire photo libraries or portions of them if you wish.

Google Home is the company's budding AI speaker product, and we're likely to see how it'll answer the new Amazon Eco Show and its smart Alexa assistant.

Google is unveiling the new feature at a conference in California on Wednesday. The new Android Go platform looks like it has numerous same goals as the older Android One, but with hopefully some improvements that will allow Google to have a better shot at selling more phones.

Like the Assistant on Google's own Pixel smartphones, the iPhone version will take commands via voice, the person said. The Android for the auto also integrates Google Assistant, which is the artificial intelligence-powered, voice-based virtual assistant.
