Google focused on two main themes of Android O at its conference - "Fluid Experiences" and "Vitals" - which are detailed below, along with their main elements.

Google's assistant will be at a disadvantage on the iPhone, though, because Siri - a concierge that Apple introduced in 2011 - is built into that device.

Google CEO Pichai also announced another feature called Google Lens which can recognise objects by simply pointing smartphone's camera at them. It will first be available as part of Google's voice-controlled digital assistant - which bears the straightforward name "Google Assistant" - and Photos app.

All Android devices with 1GB or less of RAM will automatically use the "Go" configuration of Android, and all Android releases going forward will have "Go" configurations for these low-end devices.

Google began its I/O 2017 developers conference - an annual 3-day conference for developers - in Mountain View, California today. Google Photos will now suggest pictures to share on the basis of what people are looking at. YouTube Go, for instance, will let you see a preview of a video before you download the whole thing, and will also allow you to save videos for offline use and peer-to-peer sharing so you can save your friends and family some data too.

The new abilities announced Wednesday will also enable the Home speaker to control and interact with a variety of Whirlpool and Jenn-Air appliances later this year. Google is about to provide the latest peek at its digital services and gadgets as it seeks to become an even more influential force in people's lives.

The company is also giving the crowd a look at new twists in its Android software for mobile devices, which powers more than 80 per cent of the world's smartphones.

Google's computer programs are gaining a better understanding of the world, and now it wants them to handle more of the decision-making for the billions of people who use its services.

In addition, it said its Google Home smart speaker will soon be able to make voice calls for the first time.
