'Android O' beta released, Android OS now on 2 bn active devices
The crowd of developers in the audience cheered: millions of new iPhone users to reach for innovative voice-based interactions. It could be a WiFi password, which the phone will be able to recognize and thus help a user log in immediately.
Virtual Reality Headsets which don't require a smartphone: Daydream technology is another huge aspect which Google concentrated at the event.
It seems that Google is trying to compete Amazon Alexa using Google Assistant.
As of now, the function will be limited to a small number of apps. As we've learned since Android debuted, Google has a tendency to debut and support features for a brief time only to abandon them completely for something shinier.
Google is also adding a feature to Photos to create soft-cover and hard-cover albums of pictures at prices beginning at $9.99.

Expert who beat cyberattack says he's no hero
His mother Janet, a nurse, couldn't be prouder - and was happy to have the veil of anonymity lifted. Since Friday, malware has infected an estimated 300,000 computers in 150 countries.
It does let you input calendar appointments, set timers, jot down shopping lists, look up contacts, and get reminders, but all of that functionality works only with Google's own services. "Whether you're at home or on the go, your Assistant is ready to help".
You can't launch apps, search some Apple content stores, or pull up photos. But the typing feature has a lot more to it as well.
At I/O 2017, Googleadded a bunch of new tools to the Play Console that includes new ways to check application performance, publish Instant Apps, and much more.
One of the other announcements coming out of I/O 2017 relates to the changes proposed in the app. Within the section that allows this option of SafetyNet you can choose between 3 different options: do not exclude, exclude those devices that do not pass the SafetyNet filter or exclude those that are not certified by Google. While the first generation of TPUs were only for internal company use, the technology will now be available for use on Google's burgeoning cloud service business. The new API will reportedly make payments easier, and faster than ever before for users. Google has now unveiled the feature for developers and can embed the instant apps API to their apps. Netflix quickly confirmed that it would start blocking the installation of the app from the Play Store for devices that didn't pass Google's Safety Net. The app will itself tells you the name, the location, ratings and business area of that restaurant.
You can't easily use it in the vehicle. While the Assistant is obviously not integrated on iOS as well as Siri, it can perform quite a few tasks already. Google Assistant on iPhones doesn't have this level of integration, making it a non-starter in the auto. And while we've heard this before, Google's latest salvo for "the next billion" actually makes a lot of sense. Even after the presence of SIRI, Google Assistant will be a standalone app on iPhone and iPad, offering numerous same functions as what we've seen it do on Google's own operating system.
The Android platform has traditionally been mocked for its relatively lax security, so Google has picked up the slack to harden said security.

DeMar DeRozan: Raptors Would Have Won With LeBron James
Give the Raptors this much: they didn't roll over when the Cleveland Cavaliers took a 16-point early in the third quarter. At this point, if LeBron James found a cure for world hunger, Skip Bayless would probably find something wrong with it.

U.S. launches strikes against Syrian militia
