IPhone users can now install the voice-enabled Google Assistant for iOS

A feature called Google Play Protect, meanwhile, will scan all your apps for malicious software. The platform will offer heavily-optimized versions of Google apps - including YouTube Go - and Google is rolling out a series of best practices so that developers can optimize their own apps for the platform.

Third-party developers can create custom Actions for the Google Assistant, so that it goes beyond simply tapping into your Google apps on your phone. So-called "wise" limits will gauge and control how much battery life your apps are using.

"From the beginning, Android's mission has been to bring the power of computing to everyone", Google's Sameer Samat said during the introduction.

With Google Home, users will be able to access the full range of the Google Assistant's features on connected LG appliances.

Google has basically usurped Apple's thunder and implemented the same feature for Assistant, and its available to use right now - even on iPhones.

Saha played one (good) innings, Manan Vohra played one innings but apart from that none of the others played responsibly. Smith took joy in the fact that Pune proved to be Mumbai's nemesis every time they met this season.

A new Google Assistant SDK will allow companies to build Google Assistant into whatever product they are building. And with this Google Lens added to the Assistant, for example, you can simply enable the lens and move your camera towards say, a dish that you do not know. Google will also let you share whole photos libraries with others.

Android Go will run on devices with 1GB or less of memory. For instance, you can ask the digital assistant within Home to turn on the dishwasher or set the temperature on the oven. For streaming video lovers, we've already added Netflix, and we have more partners on the way like HBO NOW, CBS All Access, and HGTV.

At Google I/O today, LG Electronics (LG) announced a lineup of smart appliances that are fully compatible with the Google Assistant on Google Home, ushering in cutting-edge connectivity and convenience for today's smart home.

The overview came Wednesday during Google's annual conference for thousands of computer programmers.

Google Assistant became available on iPhone on Wednesday. To help get older and slower devices on the newer version Android, Google is releasing Android Go, a new configuration just for entry-level phones.
