At its annual developers conference at an outdoor concert-venue near its main campus in Mountain View, California, Google unveiled its vision for computing centered around artificial intelligence. However, it has not seen much success in terms of sales of new and cheap devices to those targeted markets. This time it's called Android Go, and the apps running on this version of Android are optimized for devices with under 1GB of RAM. Google says Home will also feature "proactive assistance", which means notifying you ahead of time if you need to leave early to beat traffic, for example. This will allow the Home to light up it's notification lights to inform you that it has something important to tell you, from there just ask assistant whats up and find out ... what's up.

Google's digital assistant is hoping to outsmart Siri on Apple's iPhone. There's also no word if Google itself will launch its own hardware devices with Android Go. When paired with the Google Assistant, users will be able to hold their smartphones up to signage in a different language or various objects and it will decipher them, with the ability to continue the conversation with context as before, once it has. To drive greater usage of the app, Google will now make suggestions to prod users to share images and allow them to order physical photo albums.

Pinterest has a similar tool. Google is releasing a new Assistant SDK that will let device makers put the assistant on "speakers, toys, drink-mixing robots, whatever insane device you can think of", Huffman said.

Google Assistant on the phone will also add support for Google Actions, which will let third parties integrate services into the assistant. The company envisions a world in which awesome photos are no longer left on people's phones because other pressing things in life got in the way.

The Google Assistant debuted past year on the company's own hardware, and Google has gradually extended the tool to devices from other manufacturers running on its Android operating system.

I just got my first taste of Google's next iteration, codenamed Android O, and it looks like it's targeting exactly the areas where Google's mobile OS needed improvement. 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, Microsoft, Apple and Amazon.com Inc are competing to establish the dominant voice-powered digital assistant, which many in the industry believe will supplant keyboards and touch screens as a primary way that users interact with technology. Executives are also laying out how the company is expanding the reach and capabilities of the Google Assistant, which is now available on some smartphones and an internet-connected speaker called Home.
