Google Lens Introduced at Google I/O 2017 with Deep Machine Learning Capabilities

Google Vice President of Developer Products Jason Titus speaks during Google I/O 2016 at Shoreline Amphitheatre on May 19, 2016 in Mountain View, California, USA.

At Google I/O, Samant highlighted the fact that India now has more Android users than the US. It defies the popular saying: "Two swords can not be contained in one sheath", and makes iPhone the home for both Siri and Google Assistant.

Google Assistant will also be able to schedule appointments and add reminders through Google Home, make hands-free calls with Home, and see visual responses from Assistant on your TV through Chromecast. Sign up for early access to the new Google Payment API. Bixby Vision Feature, a feature which comes in Galaxy S8 and S8+ also works in the same way. It also makes the user choose between Apple Music and YouTube.

Autofill has a new update as well. Initially, there will be a default Google number but users will be able to try their own mobile phone numbers as well.

Text selection will get smarter. Google Photos will use image recognition to help select the best photos for you. If the user asks for the location of a place, Google Home will be able to open Maps on the phone and show it to the user directly. Google chose to change the name, and add new functionality in the process, likely because it is more appropriate, considering what it is mainly used for - which is to locate Android devices and remotely wipe or ring them.

When will Android Go launch? If a customer is making a payment at a particular store that has hooked its loyalty program into Android Pay, users will get a notification asking whether they want to add their card and, once added, will begin collecting points with every transaction.

Daydream VR Google announced that it would be launching Daydream VR (Virtual Reality) Headset which will work without a smartphone.

Apart from Android O delivering fluid experiences, Google has discussed the vitals of Android O.

And let me tell you, it's one of the handiest features I've ever used. People sharing the photo album will also have a provision to limit their photos to the selected people.
