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
