Google renames Android Device Manager as 'Find My Device'

Google renames Android Device Manager as 'Find My Device'

Android Go will work on the smartphones which have less than 1 GB of memory.

Google has been seriously working on the VR technology.

Google Lens is set to launch later this year. Now Google has officially released the Assistant for iOS and is available for download on the iPhone starting today. This feature will also run on company's messaging app "Allo". Earlier, if users wanted to call someone, they would not be able to use the names of the contact on the phone, but now, users will be able to pull up those contacts directly through Google Home and call them. In other words, the best new features Android has to offer have precious little to do with Android itself.

At its annual I/O Developer Conference which held yesterday in Mountain View, California, USA, Google announced the newest features that will be coming to Android O, the next version of its Android mobile operating system.

"Part of Android's mission is to bring computing to everyone", Google said in its blog post. The Assistant's role in these is so users can give vocal commands and questions, such as telling it to preheat the oven, or asking how many cleaning pods are left in the dishwasher. Android is still King of the mobile industry and there are over 2 billion monthly global users.

Google has already introduced the new features during Google I/O 2017 which will be brought to Android O like picture-in-picture, Smart Text Selection, Android Vitals and much more.

China's Xi says willing to help end rift with South Korea
South Korea's new President Moon Jae-In dispatched Lee to Beijing in the wake of his election victory last week. Moon asked Xi to personally look into ways to resolve the issue, Yonhap said.

One of the big additions Google is making is a feature called "Vitals" for Google Play, which helps developers spot issues within apps that can negatively impact things like battery life or device security. The first budget devices with the new configuration are expected to ship in 2018.

Google I/O 2017 kicked off with a keynote from the CEO, Sundar Pichai highlighting the growth of Android.

The Assistant is now available on more than 100 million devices, including Android smartphones, Android Auto, Android TV, and Android Home.
