Within a few hours will officially open the Google I / O 2017, the annual event dedicated to developers where Big G usually has many of its novelties in software. The event that will last 3 days in total this year will be held at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California. The keynote as always can be followed by streaming from 19:00 now Italian. On Twitter with the hashtag # io17request you will also be able to ask questions in the form of videos, photos and text to the experts who will get on stage. At the Google I / O 2017, the real protagonist will certainly be Android O, but there will be room for other products and services, as well.
Apparently despite the recurring rumors at the conference we may not see the much-anticipated Pixel 2. Google might officially announce it, but the actual disclosure could happen later during a dedicated event. Big G is expected to have worked on three smartphone models and among them there would be a low cost. The only certainty is that the new devices will integrate the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and, thanks to an agreement with LG, they will always have the OLED screens that they will use.
During the event, Google Assistant may also be announced for iOS devices. Google seems intent on challenging Siri directly on its ground, but at least at the beginning should do so only in the United States. Unexpectedly, the Mountain View giant might also reveal new features for Android TV, launched in 2014 and never updated. Google should announce the arrival of new APIs and apps specially studied for its television ecosystem and a renewal of tools available to developers (Firebase, Google Cloud Tools and Android Studio). There are no confirmations with regard to VR news but the recent acquisition of Owlchemy Labs may be the clue that something boils in pot for DayDream. Finally, Google has promised to present the latest version of Android Auto, which will be integrated into the AUdi and Bmw gauge partner’s infotainment systems.
