In­tro­duc­tion of new ven­tures and up­dates

Industry Leaders - - Big Events -

There was a time when Google’s fo­cus was on com­ing up with tech­nol­ogy in­tended for mo­bile phones. Now it has moved a step fur­ther and fo­cuses on augmented re­al­ity. With the help of this new con­cept of tech­nol­ogy, Google has come up with a soft­ware that helps you find an­swers on the search gi­ant not by tex­tual in­put but through search­ing on the ba­sis of vis­ual ob­jects. This means that if you have dis­cov­ered a flower and are cu­ri­ous to gain more in­sight about it, you turn to Google for help. But how can you look for in­for­ma­tion if you don’t know which word to use to search for it. Google Lens al­lows you to con­duct the search through the medium of us­ing the vis­ual iden­tity of the flower. Many tech crit­ics claim that this was the high­light of the event. Such an in­no­va­tion has given the tech gi­ant an edge in front of other com­peti­tors.

Aim­ing to rule the smart home sec­tor, Google Home has been given a new at­trac­tive fea­ture in its lat­est up­date. In the fol­low­ing months, this gad­get will come with a new hands­free fea­ture which will en­able you to take calls through the medium of the Wi-fi. This smart home ap­pli­ance is a re­place­ment for your land­line which has been out­dated long back. An­other ma­jor up­date which the tech gi­ant is ex­cited about is the avail­abil­ity of the Google

As­sis­tant on IOS de­vices. This up­date is in or­der to give di­rect com­pe­ti­tion to Siri. Google’s voice as­sis­tant will be avail­able in the form of an app which can be availed from the app store. While Siri needs to rely on in­ter­net-based search en­gines to com­plete its an­swers, Google As­sis­tant has an added ad­van­tage as it has its own search en­gine in sync with the voice as­sis­tant.

Apart from Google As­sis­tant, the tech gi­ant has in­tro­duced one more fea­ture in or­der to give a tough fight to Ap­ple. We are all well aware of the ‘Find my iphone’ fea­ture which comes in handy in case you mis­place your iphone and also thieves be­come wary be­fore steal­ing such a de­vice. Up un­til now, there was no such fea­ture in­stalled in your An­droid de­vice. Play Pro­tect is a fea­ture which pro­tects your apps as well as smart­phone from all kinds of mal­ware. Along with this comes the ‘Find my Phone’ fea­ture, which holds re­sem­blance with the iphone tracker.

Apart from th­ese soft­ware up­dates, there was an an­nounce­ment re­gard­ing a stand­alone VR head­set in col­lab­o­ra­tion with HTC. Ex­cept this lit­tle in­for­ma­tion, noth­ing more was re­leased.
