Here's everything Google announced at its big I/O conference

Google Announces Android Go for Low End Devices & Emerging Markets

Facebook showed off a mobile-oriented ML framework called Caffe2Go previous year, which is used to power applications like the company's live style transfer feature.

"Your assistant should know how to use all of your connected devices for your benefit", Google's Scott Huffman said onstage as he demonstrated new features. This should help combat the criticism that Android has too many menus and is hard to navigate.

For users, Instant Apps offer a few advantages.

Notification channels: Android O also introduced new app-defined categories for notification content. This starts with Notification Dots that show up as a tiny dot on an app icon as alerts roll in. Instead, you'll need to manually launch the app each time you want to run it.

Google says you can also choose to share entire photo libraries or portions of them if you wish. Most of the apps will be less than 10MB in size and will work great on Android devices that have little RAM.

And as the rumor mill suggested, O - expected to be released by the end of summer - will finally allow picture-in-picture mode, Google executives said Wednesday at the Google I/O 2017 conference in Mountain View. LG Electronics sells a range of stylish and innovative home appliances, home entertainment products, mobile phones, commercial displays, air conditioning systems and solar energy solutions in the United States, all under LG's "Life's Good" marketing theme.

Lehmann: Ashes boycott won't happen
Strike action appears to be a possible next step if Cricket Australia can not agree an updated payment policy that is acceptable to all parties before a deadline at the end of next month.

Google's Assistant is already available on its Pixel smartphone, as well as the Home speaker. It scans your device on a regular basis in addition to scanning every app you decide to install to protect against malware.

Picture-in-picture: Google moved a step ahead from multi-window and got the picture-in-picture feature from Android TV to Android phones and tablets. Android Go will ship in 2018 for all Android devices that have 1 GB or less of memory. With instant apps, however, all users would have to do is click a link; the applet would quickly load and let them do what they came for.

For example, in Go, the YouTube app will allow users to preview a video before they decide whether or not to use up data watching it. Google will be able to put all these together, so users who search for "retail" will see all matching job types.

It's not remarkable that Netflix wants to do this, but it is remarkable that they can: after all, what does it mean to have a rooted device if you can't instruct that device to pretend not to be rooted when code that views you as its adversary tries to figure out its operating environment? In other words, the interface changes are created to ensure that content can be much more easily found and in a much quicker time-frame.

"TensorFlow Lite will leverage a new neural network API to tap into silicon-specific accelerators, and over time we expect to see [digital signal processing chips] specifically designed for neural network inference and training", said Dave Burke, Google's vice president of engineering for Android.

One of the biggest announcements at this year's conference is the announcement that Google Assistant, the artificially intelligent competitor to Siri, is finally coming to the iPhone. But it's not going to do it with today's Android operating system designed for premium devices in the United States and Europe. It's also getting a slew of new improvements. Go is a trimmed down version of Android built upon three keys ideas: OS, apps, and Play Store. Also called lens, it lets people point their cameras at real-world items and find out where to buy them, or find similar things online. This new operating system is specifically for low-budget Android phones and it will be a lightweight version of the upcoming operating system. It will first be available as part of Google's assistant and photos products. The key update is that now Assistant and Android will be able to control vehicle functions like heating, cooling and seat positioning in cars from Audi and Volvo.
