On Wednesday, May 17, 2017, an event called Google I/O took place. Google I/O is basically a conference where Google announces their new products or concepts. The keynote was about two hours long so I decided to write an article, to sum up, all of the important stuff. Here are some key things Google announced.

1. Google Assistant on the iPhone

Google announced the availability of the Google Assistant on the iPhone via the Google Assistant app. This is important because it creates competition for Siri and provides the, in my opinion, superior assistant for the iPhone.

2. Android O

Google announced its new Android operating system, Android O. Android O doesn’t look like a huge difference from Android Nougat, the previous operating system. It does have a few incremental, but still useful, updates. A new feature in Android O is Notification Dots which show near the icon of the app and when you long press the icon, the notifications for the app pop up. Also, the operating system gets further optimized, making the phone faster.

3. A New VR Headset

Google also announced a new virtual reality headset that doesn’t need a phone. That means that this headset will be a standalone device, with its own internals, screen, etc. Also, unlike most other standalone VR headsets this headset will not need any wires or sensors to use.
