APK File Reveals Some Upcoming Features Of Google Home

Google announced a lot of new bells and whistles Wednesday - several of which, it turns out, are already offered by rivals such as Amazon, Apple and Facebook.

Naturally, the next version of Android will be the star of the show during Google's I/O keynote.

Google reported in September 2015 that Android had 1.4 billion monthly active devices meaning it has added more than 600 million devices in roughly 20 months.

Although I/O has always been a conference where Google reaches out to developers, and hence mostly makes announcements related to its software platforms, this time the company is expected to announce new virtual reality (VR) hardware.

The latest insider byte comes from Variety, who cites multiple sources aware of the development, to suggest that Mountain view plans to give developers a sneak peek at its next-generation Daydream VR headset on stage at the developer conference. Over the next 12 to 24 months, your phone and speakers will get smarter, with Google rallying behind Assistant. When running on an Android Go smartphone, the app will let users see preview frames of any video they want.

Obviously the most likely option is that Google Assistant will be its own app on the App Store, much like the current Google Search. Like every other third-party digital assistant on iOS, Google Assistant will be more restricted in its system access than Apple's own Siri, and less convenient to activate as well. Google's DayDream VR platform propelled in 2016 I/O event and keeping in mind that it was an attempt to enhance the nature of portable VR encounters, the effect has been constrained. The report also says that it will integrate with other Google apps installed on users' iPhones. Android O: Google is expected to introduce a new operating system after Android Nougat this year. Executives are also likely to detail plans for expanding the reach and capabilities of a voice-controlled digital assistant now available on some smartphones and an internet-connected speaker called Home.

Google has launched two virtual reality devices previously: Google Cardboard, used with a smartphone, and the DayDream VR viewer, that also uses high-end smartphones to power virtual reality apps and games.
