Google announced some new and fantastic updates on Wednesday at its annual I/O conference. The optimized apps for the lightweight OS should have a download size of less than 10MB and should work well for devices with slow processors. Pichai noted that the 2 billion figure includes smartphones, tablets, Android TVs and other systems that use the operating system.

It's true. Google Assistant, which has been a key selling point of Google's own in-house Pixel hardware, is now available on Apple Inc.'s smartphone.

This year, we are set to see the launch of a breastfeeding emoji, a dinosaur, a wizard, as well as a genie and UFO design. Google is said to be designing apps like YouTube Go, and a new version of Chrome that will be easy on mobile data - an optimisation that will be of particular interest to users in rural areas of the country where high-speed mobile data penetration still remains low. This has been something that was much needed in the Android OS. "They'll be able to use these saved payment options in third-party apps and mobile sites as well as on Google Assisant when they are on-the-go. Every app is different, but we've seen with our early partners that with the latest tools, instant app development typically takes about 4-6 weeks". There will also be a simple version of the play store created but it will still contain the whole app catalog. Well, to start with, the company would be focusing on making Android O compatible with entry-level devices, which will be tailor-made to basic devices.

Pichai said the company is rethinking all of its services in order to apply AI and machine learning technology across as many aspects of Google's business as possible.

Google just announced that it there are now 2 billion Android devices that are being used worldwide. This is a great addition from Google and it adds more sense to have the Assistant on your phone since talking to it is not always ideal, especially when in public.

So far, this year's Google I/O has been more about incremental updates than big new products and projects.

"Today, hundreds of millions of users are coming online for the first time and, for the majority, their first online experience will be on a smartphone", the book noted. The second Android O preview Beta quality is released on may 17th, 2017.

Some of the major consumer electronics companies that are now in the process of rolling out support for third-party actions on the Google Assistant include smart irrigation company Blossom, Roomba maker iRobot, and home appliances firm GE Appliances.
