Google outs Android O beta, standalone VR headset at I/O 2017

With its latest version released in August 2016, Android has been claimed by Google officials to be "across all screens:" watches, cars, television sets, Internet of Things (IoTs) and chromebooks, a class of low-coast laptop computers comprising almost 60 per cent of laptops sold to K-12 schools in the US.

On the hardware side of things, Google has announced that it's working with HTC and Lenovo to out standalone Daydream-powered VR headsets later this year. It brings out various new features, tweaks and improvements to the mix. You will receive a dot appearing when there is a new notification. This was in case of the Pixel smartphones, where Google mentioned this feat. This feature will make it faster.

Adaptive Icons: The special feature of Adaptive icons will allow users to create the icons with different shapes also supports visual effects.

CEO Sundar Pichai unveiled Google Lens, a set of vision-based computing capabilities that can understand what you are looking at. With this update, they now have square, squircle, cylinder and rectangle with rounded corners. (The current version of Android is the N version, Nougat.) It often takes years for a new version of the software to make it to older phones, and never arrives at all for some. These are just a few of the ways that Google Lens upgrades the Assistant. With this, users can simply double tap on a single word and select the entire relevant information. Like the Device Manager, this can locate lost or stolen devices and remotely lock them or erase data, but it has a brand new design and comes with a couple of additional features - find it at the Play Store here.

Night Light too, has been updated. And since you're probably more likely to lose or have your phone stolen than become a victim of a malware attack - I'd recommend getting on board with Find My Device. Whether or not we'll be treated to the same feature in the United Kingdom remains to be seen.

Google Assistant is on more than 100 million devices after being on the market for slightly more than six months and now is trying to invade new territory with a free app released Wednesday that works on the operating system powering Apple's iPhone. It's still better than watching blank squares.
