Google Assistant now available on iOS

AI will also be more evident in the Google Photos app. Users will soon be able to use the software to intelligently pick out photos based on events such as holidays, special occasions or celebrations, which they can then compile into a physical photo book.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai unveiled Google Lens, a set of vision-based computing capabilities that can understand what you are looking at. This will make it much more user-friendly for people in other countries, and likely will increase the global use of the feature.

Pichai announced Google Lens, the company's take on augmenting reality using the camera app to recognise objects in the screen and provide essential suggestions.

Finally can talk about #googlelens. Been working on building visual search for more than a year. It's now available in U.S. and Canada. All of the updates to Google Home are by default also new features coming to the Google Assistant and the devices it's compatible with.

Google Home will now be able to connect with different devices using Bluetooth technology. The Play Store that will be packed in with the Android Go, will offer users suggestions as to what applications they can install on their device.

Google is debuting a new way for consumers to use their Google credentials to pay for items in Android app, on the mobile web, or on a desktop website. What Google is trying to focus on now is being more proactive with its reminders. Those include ones that we already knew about, like picture-in-picture, as well as features like notification dots. Going forward, all Android smartphones that have 1 GB of RAM or less will automatically run Android Go.

The really cool news here is that iOS users do not have to really wait for Google Assistant to hit Apple's App Store. "The time is right to take the investment to the next level", said Sameer Samat, a Google executive leading Android and Play efforts, at the Google I/O developer conference. With Android O, the company has introduced new Play-Protect feature which can find issues in apps and protect your device from security threats.

In April Google announced that Home would no longer be a US-only product and would branch out to the United Kingdom as well. To make things easier, Google even recognised Kotlin, a statically typed programming language as a first-class language for writing Android apps. Starting this week, you can interact with the Assistant via the new app for iOS.

Google's still nameless voice assistant is competing against Amazon's Alexa, Apple's Siri and Microsoft's Cortana for the next generation of voice-controlled devices. The Amazon Echo is only available in three countries-the U.S., United Kingdom and Germany-but it is unlikely that Alexa will remain limited to those territories. If Google Assistant sees you have a soccer game on your calendar but notices traffic is heavy, it will be smart enough to advise you to leave early.
