Google poised to roll out arsenal of services, gadgets

In addition to that, Google now has 2 billion active Android devices. The feature will come to market with the regular version of Android O, which is now in beta and will be available this fall. Scan business cards, receipts, connect to Wi-Fi, book movie tickets by pointing the camera at the posters, do it all. It is a new recognition engine which can understand both texts and images and come up with relevant smart answers. One of the most heavily covered topics of the day was Google Home, the standalone assistant and Bluetooth speaker designed for the living room.

You can ask Google to search Google, control smart home appliances, and track packages, Google said. Currently, Google Assistant is being used on over 100 million Android devices worldwide. You'll be able to call any landline or mobile number in the United States or Canada completely free. Support for YouTube's recommendations and Watch Later lists was also demoed although we aren't sure if support for your subscriptions will be available at launch. The first major one announced is that you can now just type in Assistant to perform a task instead of using your voice. It was founded in 1996 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin in a garage owned by Susan Wojcicki, now CEO of You Tube - a Google property.

The biggest announcement at I/O 2016 was Google Assistant, which showed itself to be quite competent at processing natural language queries, and keeping up with context. So Google might have news for us about this tech. Suggested Sharing essentially recommends other people to share photos you just took with, including to iPhone users who have Google Photos. Google will also let you share whole photos libraries with others.

Trump Warns Comey, Blasts Media, Asks 'When Does It End' on Russian Federation
Comey's surprising termination and the subsequent outrage sent the press office scrambling to justify the timing of his firing. White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Friday rejected the idea that Trump asked Comey to pledge his loyalty.

From heating up water to turning on the ice maker to preheating the oven for turkey (that really is a command), Google Assistant can do it all.

The move extends the potential reach of Google's assistant, which debuted last fall on the company's Pixel phone and an internet-connected speaker called Home.

But AI is only successful if developers are able to leverage massive amounts of computing power to train AI models. Before today, Google Assistant was a largely personal experience that lived without your phone (with the exception of some Home-related functions like multiplayer voice-based games and music).
