Google Assistant Coming To iPhone

Called Google Lens, the feature helps you "understand what you're looking at" and take actions based on that information, CEO Sundar Pichai explained.

Google Lens will be built into the Google Assistant AI, which can be used on the latest Android phones as well as iPhones. Google is also adding more music and video services to Home. The most impressive one will be integration with the newly unveiled Google Lens feature, which uses the camera on your phone to identify objects. For instance, Photos will notice when you take a shot of a friend and nudge you to send it to her, so you don't forget.

This is the reason why we are hearing of a VR headset that Google will probably announce today. These devices will automatically get Android Go instead of the full version. But, you won't be able to access the complete functions of the voice assistant because Apple has always applied some API restrictions to third-party developers on its platform.

The new technology was previewed at Google's developer conference I/O, which began on Wednesday. Google's photo apps and services have gotten a range of updates, and the Google Assistant is getting new capabilities and coming to iOS.

Portugal wins the Eurovision final as the UK's Lucie Jones finishes 15th
The acrimony is ironic, since Eurovision was founded in 1956 to bring the recently warring countries of Europe together. With the capacity at 20,000, these figures make it seem a ideal venue to host the Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon.

Given that the initiative is based on Android O itself, therefore it's likely that we will see first Android Go devices later on this year.

Google Play Protect, a security feature that the company says will automatically check your apps for vulnerabilities, then show you if everything is secure.

Google is also prioritizing data savings with Android Go. Hands-free calls only supports outbound calls at the moment and only to phones, as it's not possible to call the Google Home speaker from another Google Home or from any other device.

There are plenty other things, but the gist of the update is that it's focused more on addressing annoyances and fine-tuning performance than on offering flashy new features. That's a significant bump from last July, when Google announced that it had sold a total of 30 million Chromecasts since the introduction of the streaming adapter in 2013. What is expected to be showcased are new tweaks in Android software for mobile phones and other devices. The India Today tech team is already inside the Shoreline Amphitheater near Google headquarters in Mountain View where the company holding the event.
