Android users are very familiar with the Google Assistant on their phones, now iPhone users can get it too.
New version of Android is coming as Google has rolled out the developer preview of its next Android named Android O. The newest version of Google Play Store that is now available for APK download is the 7.8.32, and it's compatible with all Android devices, such as smartphones, tablets and even TVs. Alongside the Android O, the company also announced Android Go which is an optimised Android software for entry-level consumers on devices with up to 1GB of RAM.
On its new Android, Google has finally changed the way Android devices show notifications.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai talks about Google Lens and updates to the Google Assistant during the keynote address of the Google I/O conference on Wednesday in Mountain View, California. Since this layer works mostly independently from Android as a whole and can be tailored specifically to a particular device, users should theoretically be able to do updates like this over the air. This feature will also run on company's messaging app "Allo". Users will merely need to scroll up to see what they've been asking before.
When will Android Go launch?
Another difference is that for Android One, Google asked phone makers to abide by some rules. 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 has been seriously working on the VR technology.
As per CNET, the Android O mobile operating system focuses mostly on making the software work better, faster and save battery just like the Android 7.0 Nougat. Later this year they will be replaced with more traditional round emojis like the ones seen on Apple and Android devices.
"There are now more Android users in India than there are in the US", said Sameer Samat, the VP of product management for Android and Google Play. It will first be available as part of Google's voice-controlled digital assistant - which bears the straightforward name "Google Assistant" - and Photos app.
