Google I/O 2016 in a nutshell
Google’s I/O 2016 conference just ended few days ago, and gave us as usual a lot of information on what to expect in the next months from the BigG.
Google I/O is primarily a developer conference; by design, it’s looking forward. Its format is similar every year: Google drops a lot of info about the next version of Android, which is typically still in development, announces a ton of software and possibly shows off one or two hardware gadgets. Project development schedules don’t always line up with events, and it’s better to announce a product for later than to launch a half-baked one now.
Google announced the news:
- The new Android N, designed starting from users’ feedbacks since the last Marshmallow version
- Assistant, that seeks to proactively offer help as you navigate Google’s many services
- Home an Amazon Echo-like speaker that infuses the assistant in your house as a kind of ambient presence, ready to help the moment you utter the activation phrase
- Daydream that is the VR module on Android N
- Android Wear 2.0, be able to sync data from multiple apps. For example, you can sync the calories you’ve burned on a run from one app with the distance tracking from another app.
- Android Instant Apps, a nifty feature which lets you use Android apps without installing them on your phone
