[Podcast] The Google I/O 2017 recap: Lens, Assistant & more

Talk to Your GE Appliances Via Google Home

Once launched, Android device owners will be able send money to their loved ones and friends by just talking to the phone, provided they have linked debit/credit card to Google Wallet and the person, you want to send money has a Google account.

We've known for a while that typing in Google Assistant was coming, but it was officially announced yesterday at I/O. You simply choose your preferred card, enter a security code or authenticate with your Android device, and check out. From the screenshot posted on the company's official blog post, it is clear that a payment can be sent by saying "Ok Google, send $10 to Jane for pizza". Assuming you have a debit card linked to your Google account, it should send immediately.

This step will allow Google to help its users to buy online things easily as one can choose its mode of payment and preferred card, enter the code and then just simply check out. The Google Home smart speaker is the best and most convenient way to access all of the awesome features Google Assistant has to offer, and it's on sale right now on Amazon at the lowest price we can find.

Developers who adopt this API can enable an easy-to-use checkout experience for their customers.

As of late 2016, 95 percent of the world's 7 billion-plus population now has access to cellular coverage and "there are nearly as many mobile-cellular subscriptions as people on earth", according to the International Telecommunication Union's "Measuring the Information Society" report. Android Studio provides the tools you need to modularise your app so that features can be downloaded as needed.

Google Assistant will also work with Google Lens and the virtual assistant is said to be more conversational.
