A Closer Look At Android TV's New Android O Interface

Last but not the least, Google's new OS will come with multilingual support out of the box. So Android O will include so-called "wise limits" that will monitor the amount of energy and power that each app is using, and limit an app's access to those resources if it is hogging them. Many believe, Google might officially detail the roadmap of its pet project, which is most likely to take-off around 2020. For instance, point it at a flower, and it will tell you the species it belongs to.

Google announced Wednesday it was bringing its digital assistant to Apple iPhones as part of its effort to win the battle with tech rivals on artificial intelligence. It's possible there are more features and a wider roll out to come at some point at Google I/O.

All these innovations are now being clubbed under an umbrella unit called Google.ai, which comprises Research, Tools and Applied AI.

On stage at Google I/O 2017 today, Google announced Google Lens, the culmination of major improvements the company has made in machine learning. You can activate the feature by tapping the home button within a supported app.

As well as simple Wikipedia descriptions and the rest, Google Lens will also offer up reviews of any shops, restaurants and other services that you aim your camera at.

As both Apple and Google become more open with the applications they allow on their markets, I personally think a little friendly competition is exactly what the companies - and the consumers need right now. Google's personal assistant works with the company's own payments system, the combination of which handles the ordering and payment process without requiring users to deal with third-party sites.

And, this year we are expecting Google to make some interesting announcements.

One final new feature of Assistant is shortcuts, where you can create a keyword or phrase to use instead of a long-winded instruction for something you do often.

It'll feature lighter versions of Google apps, like YouTube Go (which already exists), Chrome and the Gboard keyboard application.

At this year's annual Google I/O developers conference, which kicks off tomorrow in Mountain View, Calif., we're hoping to get a clearer understanding of what Pichai meant. Google has famously struggled to get people to actually update their phones to new versions of Android; only 7% of Android devices are using the eight-month-old Nougat update. On the current (non-Android O) version of Android TV, viewers are presented with a "recommendations" rows, and this is where one of the most obvious and notable changes takes place.
