Google I/O 2017: All presentations and announcements from the developer conference
Google I/O 2017: When and where happened?
For Google I/O 2017, Google has come up with something: instead of announcing the date and place just like the years before on the website of the developer conference, the company published a multi-part puzzle. This prompted a lively cooperation of the community, which exchanged itself on different channels and so within one day the collective found the solution.
Once again, visitors to the developer conference have to endure the sunny and sometimes sweaty weather in the Mountain View in California. As in the case of Google I/O 2016, the event also took place in the open air in the Shoreline Amphitheater in 2017.
Google I/O 2017: What to Expect
Android O, Chrome OS and Andromeda?
There are a number of issues that Google I/O 2017 might address. So far, there has been no concrete information on the next Android version. In addition, there is at least the possibility that Google will ultimately adopt the union of Android and Chrome OS, which has been broadcast for quite some time. Under the codename Andromeda, this project has already participated in surmisals several times.
Google Lens: Google makes the smartphone camera wiser
The great program called Google Lens gives smartphone cameras the ability to recognize and process image content. The feature is to be integrated into the assistant and the gallery app photos, bringing end-users closer to Google’s AI efforts.
Google presented the new feature Google Lens at its developer conference Google I/O. Google Lens is intended to enable smartphone cameras to interpret the captured images, to give information and to process them. The Lens program thus represents another step in Google’s work to incorporate artificial intelligence into its services.
A similarly hot prospect like Android O should be Daydream. The VR platform on the I / O 2016 is still in the children’s shoes. However, Google makes no secret that the Group is very interested in the success of the project. According to a rumor, Google is even working on a high-end headset for VR, similar to the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift.
Google Assistant and Home
Under the current trend, countless digital assistants sprout from the ground. A pioneer of this field, however, is Google, which intends to keep this role presumably. It would be a little surprising if the Google Assistant received a few new tricks in the context of the Google I/O 2017. Perhaps the service even ends up in the Play Store and is accessible to all Android devices. Because the assistant is only limited, says: Pixel-exclusive.
Google Home is also likely to come up. A direct successor of the Alexa competitor would probably be too early, but at least a few new features are not absurd. In addition, Google could launch a dot-like extension.
Android Wear and Auto, Google Allo and Duo
Finally, a few bouncers, which Google mentioned on the Google I/O 2017, but big announcements rather unlikely are: This includes Android Wear, whose second version despite announcement on the I / O 2016 only in February 2017 comes out, Android car , Which is not yet on the market, and last but not least promising services of the past year, but functionally lagged behind expectations – yes, this is mainly Google Allo.
