Google opens Instant Apps for all developers

Google Showcase

It will soon support non-premium Spotify accounts, Soundcloud, and Deezer, and Google will also add Bluetooth support so you can play other stuff directly from your phone, tablet, or laptop as you could with any Bluetooth speaker.

Google's improving its multitasking credentials with a new picture-in-picture tool that allows users to carry on a video call while hopping between different apps. Google now garners 800 million monthly active users on Google Drive, and more than 2 billion people are using Android devices. And so, Google also makes use of daily scans and machine learning algorithms to help stay one step ahead of any potential threats; if it does encounter a malicious app, it can disable it to prevent further problems. The new Shared Library feature also lets you automatically share images with people, like a spouse, significant other, or best friend.

Google has also had a spring-clean in the Notifications tray and the Settings menu.

In a bid to expand the user-base, Google Assistant has been made available in Apple iPhones. Instead, the Assistant will pull the relevant details from information you've previously shared with Google. While the app is already available on Android devices, this new announcement promises to improve Apple customer's experience with Artificial Intelligence technology. Finally, Google will release Android O in August. When you make a request, it will show visual responses on screen.

Google introduced Google Play Protect-a comprehensive set of security services for Android, providing powerful new protections and greater visibility into your device security.

Google wants you to be more social and share more photos with your friends.

Play Protect detects and removes apps that might be harmful.

Another new feature previewed on-stage was notification dots - new coloured bubbles that appear beside an app icon when you have a notification waiting. It will act as a new security system that keeps devices, data and apps safe, the company said.

Google says third-party developers, like Amazon Prime and Netflix, will be able to implement the feature ahead of the launch of Android 8.0 later this year.
