GE Appliances to get Google voice control option

20 May 2017, 12:16 | Megan Pierce

This might sound like a completely new service, but in practice, this is really just a rebranding of the existing Android Device Manager (ADM) tools - which Google launched in 2013 - with some refinements.

Promising to make Android "even more useful", Burke announced a beta release of the operation system's newest version, Android O. Its formal release is scheduled for "later this year".

Instant apps works on any Android device that runs Android version 6.0 (Marshmallow) or higher, and is available in 40 countries. We also previewed new security and management features in Android O that give enterprise customers additional app and data protections.

Integration with Google Photos means even more information is available after the event, for example it can match your image to online data to work out what is that landmark you photographed earlier.

Notification Dots are iOS-esque features, which put a dot next to the app icons, showcasing that there are unread notifications in the app.

Called Android Go, this software will automatically enable data-saving features and will steer users toward apps designed specifically for low-priced hardware.

While talking to media Samat also explained the differences between the Android One and Android Go.

With over two billion Android devices used worldwide and people constantly checking mails, updating apps, downloading games and watching movies, this move by Google is seen as a way of guaranteeing the security of one's device. Google's keynote focused largely on AI and machine learning with Assistant at the centre of it all. Google is closely working with Qualcomm on the headset which won't require any cables, smartphone or PC.

At this stage the app only operates in English, however, Google has announced that new languages will be available soon.

Exhausted of Siri? Well, you can now get the "chatty" Google Assistant installed on your iPhone.

The company also introduced a new offering aimed at merchants, who want to reward their most loyal customers.

"There are now more Android users in India than there are in the USA", said Sameer Samat, the VP of product management for Android and Google Play.
