These languages will also be supported on Assistant through Android, Google Home, iOS, and third party Assistant devices too.

The overview will come Wednesday, May 17, 2017, during Google's annual conference for thousands of computer programmers. It is now the operating system, namely the software platform that manages hardware and software resources, including applications, or apps, for more than 80 percent of the world's smartphones.

There were also announcements relating to Gmail, Google Photos and Android. Android Go is going to be the new project that Google will be working on, with the hopes that even more people will move to Android with this low-budget alternative.

Google is moving from a mobile-first to an AI-first mentality, CEO Sundar Pichai explained at Google I/O today, and you can see that in action via Google Photos, which is getting an upgrade to help you more easily share your photos.

TensorFlow Lite: As Android continues to take advantage of machine learning to improve the user experience, Google wants its developer partners to be able to do the same. This is also a good idea because it will get people on the same page, regardless of where they live. Sadly, creating instant apps isn't almost as fast as using them, so it'll still be a while before they become the norm.

This feature is being sweetened with the general availability of Spotify's free tier on the Google Home device. The new version of Android has fewer top-level options (making it easier to navigate) and slightly tweaked interfaces for things like battery usage.

As part of a years-old tradition, Google will name the next Android version after a dessert or sweet-tasting snack beginning with the letter "O".

Music streaming services Spotify and Deezer are also to be added to the smart home hub, Google said.

Google is already investing in ML-specific hardware with its line of Tensor Processing Unit chips, which are created to accelerate both the training of new machine learning algorithms as well as data processing using existing models. You'll now have the power to use your voice to place free calls to any landline or mobile phone in the U.S or Canada.

LG SIGNATURE home appliances will be the first in the LG lineup to offer Google Assistant on Google Home compatibility, delivering on the brand's promise to offer innovations that combine the best of LG's cutting-edge technology and world-class design with exquisite attention to detail for the most discerning consumer.

Google Assistant is the equivalent to Apple's Siri and Amazon's Alexa.
