Google I/O 2017: Google Assistant Comes to iPhone, Understands Typing, and More

Posted May 28, 2017

New app notifications are also added on Android O. The new Google operating system also improved its copy and paste feature.

If your smartphone is equipped with Android 6.0 Marshmallow or higher, it will be able to benefit from Google Assistant this summer.

However, sometimes the users might not even feel like speaking with the AI and then they can simply type their demands to the Google Assistant by typing on the keyboard button which will available once you open the AI. Lock your phone remotely or display a message on the lock screen, so if someone finds it they know who to contact.

While personally I'm most excited about Android Pay coming to Canada, there are a lot of small improvements to the way users can send payments and use their loyalty that should make the experience better for everyone. The Play Store will also highlight Go-optimized apps, and Google will provide low-spec versions of its own applications, including Chrome, Gboard, and Youtube. Since yesterday was the Keynote speech and most of the bigger announcements happened on the first day, today has seen less announcements in general and ones that weren't as monumental for the world of Google and Android. However, the version available on iPhone's will be slightly watered down compared to that on an Android device, due to a number of API restrictions.

Google is also launching the Card Linked Offers API for developers so they can send targeted special offers for loyalty card users on Android Pay.

You need a Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Pixel, or Pixel XL phone to run Android O. It will also run on the Nexus Player and Pixel C tablet.

Google is providing the latest peek at its digital services and gadgets, initially offering a major focus on its efforts to extend artificial intelligence features into more of its apps and services. Here's to hoping that we hear more about what's going on with this update soon.
