Google poised to roll out arsenal of services, gadgets


Google CEO Sundar Pichai announced that the company will now move from a mobile first approach to an AI first one.

The push marks another step toward infusing almost all of Google's products with some semblance of artificial intelligence - the concept of writing software that enables computers to gradually learn to think more like humans.

The app is available to download right now in the Google Play Store, although we're expecting to here a little more about the redesign at Google's event today. By saying "Ok Google" to the Google Assistant on Google Home or Android phone, users can ask and receive answers, manage tasks, and control mydlink devices around their home. "That's a selling proposition that people can get excited about", Samat said.

For example, opening an email containing an invitation to dinner might trigger a prompt to reply "I'm in".

A new service called Google Lens will give Assistant a new power.

Google had first introduced Android TV in 2014, and the optics of the platform had remained more or less the same since. Google will also be curating a list of apps in its digital store that are designed for light data usage.

The overview will come Wednesday during Google's annual conference for thousands of computer programmers.

Commands are also very specific, since Google Assistant must speak to either LG's or GE's connected app in order to carry them out.

Google has made Android O available to anyone who wants to try out its mobile operating system before the final version launches at the end of 2017.

Lens features are expected to roll out to android phones in the coming months. Previously, the assistant worked only on Google's Android software. Using a smartphone camera and Google Lense technology, Google Assistant can now analyse the world to display relevant content on screen.
