Google Android OS installed on 2 bn active devices

Google has finally launched is Siri like app with Google Assistant.

Android O will also direct its attention towards improving battery life by limiting the amount of energy an app can draw in the background.

Phones, cars, speakers and appliances: Google outlined ambitious plans to take voice assistance everywhere at its Google I/O developer conference in Mountain View, Calif. this week.

With an aim to reach out to "the next billions of users" with a new initiative, Google also unveiled Android Go - a new configuration of Android for entry-level Android devices.

Smart text selection is being introduced in Android O. Notification Dots is a new way for developers to notify users about activity on the app, driving engagement. Confirming recent rumors, Google has confirmed that it will begin rolling out the Google Assistant to iPhone users as a downloadable app on the App Store. You can also call your own personal contacts, as long as your contacts are synced with your Google Account.

In the latter, the California-based company has relegated a number of specialised settings into an Advanced dropdown menu, which reduces some of the clutter and keeps the whole thing a little more user-friendly. This is part of a larger focus on "vitals" like shorter boot times and faster app loading.

Google, which gets most of its revenue from its dominant search engine, also released a host of new features for Google Home, a speaker released past year. The AI virtual assistant can now schedule calendar appointments and create reminders, as well as being able to make hands-free calls in the U.S. and Canada.

Google I/O 2017 is now underway and as well as revealing a ton of new details regarding Android O and Google Home, the big G has announced its Google Assistant AI will be updated with a host of interesting new features.

The company is also giving the crowd a look at new twists in its Android software for mobile devices, which powers more than 80 percent of the world's smartphones. It bakes features directly into Google's mobile operating system that are designed specifically for cheap phones, including software to manage cellular data costs.

Following the recent announcement that Google Home will recognise up to six distinct voices and accounts, this means that the phrase "call mom" will be tailored to each voice it hears, and able to call the mother, not the mother-in-law (or whatever). Without the need to install an app on a smartphone, developers can create instant apps that compliment a person's experience of the place they are visiting, serving up additional information in the moment rather than lingering on a device one the person has left the location. As emojis become an increasingly common tool for sharing emotions, the difference between Google blobs and other emoji platforms was causing communications breakdowns for users.

However, if you have a spare device lying around and fancy seeing what Google has planned for the next-generation of its open-source operating system, it might be worth installing Android O.
