Google Assistant For iPhone Is Now Available For Download

The operating system is intended mainly for developing nations - Google said that there are now more Android users in India than there are in the US. Facebook has its own version of this feature in its Moments app.

As Google announced during it's opening keynote at Google I/O 2017, Google Assistant is getting even better in 2017.

The update is rolling out with software version OPP2.170420.017. Basically, this version of the OS is optimized to work on entry-level smartphones. Google showed off an example: it placed an order for a Panera salad through Assistant, almost as easily as one might speaking to a real person working at the restaurant, even asking for (and getting confirmation of) substitutions. Users tend to miss out on notifications at times, and there is no way which directly alerts them about which app has notifications.

At the Google Developers' Conference I/O 2017 winds up at Mountain View California, the tech giant unveiled a slew of newbies one can hope to see and experience as the rest of the year unfolds.

However, industry experts are little positive with Android GO.

As of now, the function will be limited to a small number of apps.

Still in support of Vitals, Android O will make Play Console Dashboard available to users as a tool to monitor device performance.

The Google Home concept will be further built upon and already the smart speaker seems to be doing a great job using the Google Assist feature and the AI technology to anticipate human requirements and making daily household tasks easier to manage. Google is also close to deploying a smoother mobile checkout experience for PayPal users, thus bringing its mobile payment service much closer to the big crowd.

Google is making a huge announcement this week. It came with a Firefly feature that let users point the camera at a product, identify it, then buy it on Amazon. Anyone who's had a "conversation" with Siri or Alexa or Microsoft Cortana go off the rails can understand that. But thanks to the freshly revealed mobile OS - now ready for beta testing - Android fans now have a glimpse of what to expect from the Pixel 2 phones.

The five new countries include Canada, Russia, Spain, Brazil and Taiwan, the news was announced at Google IO. Android One failed to take off despite being the latest offering from Google.

Once launched, Android device owners will be able send money to their loved ones and friends by just talking to the phone, provided they have linked debit/credit card to Google Wallet and the person, you want to send money has a Google account. Google is a software company first and foremost, of course, and Google I/O 2017 focused on software.
