Introduction of new ventures and updates
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 This smart home appliance is a replacement for your landline which has been outdated long back.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.
