Google poised to roll out arsenal of services, gadgets

Making this part of the VR unit itself is where the Tango technology could have a big impact.

Support for the Google Assistant SDK is now available on all Android Things certified development boards, following a partnership with AIY Projects earlier this month.

Google has reportedly been working on the headset for more than a year.

Google wants to bring Android to more people around the world. Same that for the copy-less pasting framework that Google prodded some days back. 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. This new enhancement will keep apps from stealthily consuming power as the new limit will act as a barrier for them. If your TV is equipped with Google's Chromecast streaming adapter, then you will also be able to ask Home to play any episode of your favourite show on HBO's HBO Now streaming service. Let us know your opinions in the comments!

The report says that it will be presented as a "free, standalone app" that can be downloaded from the App Store. However, the same report claims that it will only be available in the U.S. at launch.

With such improvements in the Google Assistant, how can Google Home be left out? So Google will talk about this feature in the event. Expect a report on Daydream, despite the fact that it might be recently more hued headsets as opposed to anything significant. Android Go is created to run better on phones with limited hardware, in regions with limited Internet connectivity. You can long-press the app icon to see the notification without actually having to open the app. Google says that the color of the Notification Dot will actually respond to the color of the app icon as well.

HTC launches HTC U11: Snapdragon 835, no headphone jack
What do you think about the hardware and design? HTC U11 also joins the IP67 Bandwagon and is thus dust and water resistant. Interestingly, the U11 is priced the same in the United States and Europe, that is $749 in the USA and 749 Euros in Europe.

Google's CEO Sundar Pichai will be announcing all during his 90-minute keynote at 6pm United Kingdom time, which will be live-streamed here. It also adds some features, like 3D mapping and satellite images, that Android Auto lacks. Up to this point, the principle limitation has been accessibility.

When it launches, the service will be available through Google Assistant and Google Photos before being launched through other Google apps in the near future. The next-generation Pixel phones will not be announced at I/O.

There's hands-free calling, a feature Amazon just added to Echo.

The new abilities announced Wednesday will also enable the Home speaker to control and interact with a variety of Whirlpool and Jenn-Air appliances later this year. Other manufacturers need time to play with the new OS on their devices so they can tweak it and reskin it for their devices.

More information will be coming on Google's plans for wearables with Android Wear, as well as Android TV, and at the end of the three-day event there will be a live-streamed concert by LCD Soundsystem.
