You will soon be able to buy a Google Home in Canada, Australia, Germany, France and Japan, in addition to the now supported U.S. and U.K. The Amazon Echo, on the other hand, is only available in three countries, the USA, U.K. and Germany.

During this year's keynote, Google didn't say much about its Android One initiative, but that doesn't mean it has forgotten about low-end devices.

The Google Assistant has also been brought to iOS, and is rolling out in a number of new languages, including French, German and Japanese.

- Google said it is cutting the cord on virtual reality headsets with Daydream, which will not require connection to a computer or smartphone.

The Assistant debuted past year on Google's own hardware, and the company has gradually extended the tool to devices from other manufacturers running on its Android operating system. With the new feature Suggested Sharing, Google Photos will not only remind you to share- it will automatically select the right photos and even suggest who you should send them based on who was in the photos. For example, if you point the camera to a particular dish on a menu, then Google Assistant will come back with the picture of the dish from the internet.

"You'll continue to use a single codebase".

Of course, Google Lens has a bunch of other functions, like being able to identify any species of flower your point your phone at, or bringing up information on a band from an image of their poster. This will let developers and product makers build the Google Assistant into just about anything.

According to Google, the Lens feature will be available first for Google Assistant and Photos, but has yet to announce when the feature will actually be available for consumers to try out. Android Go will work on the smartphones which have less than 1 GB of memory. Unveiled at the recent Google I/O conference, the emojis looks incredible.

Finally, Android O will also boast a security enhancement in the form of Google Play Protect.

Several users are reporting that the feature can be enabled by simply clearing the Google app Data and Cache.

Last month, Google introduced support for multiple users on one Google Home account. You can also call your own personal contacts, as long as your contacts are synced with your Google Account. Moreover, Google said it will add visual responses from Assistant on users' TVs with Chromecast. Google for Jobs will use variables from job seekers to match them to the most suitable job listing in their area.
