Many of these advances have been brought to the Google Assistant, the cloud-based AI brain that powers voice-based interactions on devices like the Google Pixel.

Now, Google is drawing upon that treasure trove to teach new tricks to its digital assistant, which debuted a year ago on its Pixel phone and an internet-connected speaker called Home that is trying to mount a challenge to Amazon's Echo. The company also announced partnerships with 19 hardware manufacturers and chipset vendors to take its digital assistant beyond its Google Home speaker and mobile phones and launch it on stereo systems, cars and other consumer electronics devices, some of which will be available before the end of the year.

Android Go will work on the smartphones which have less than 1 GB of memory. Google also designed the service to minimise data usage on bandwidth-hungry services like YouTube. It also makes the user choose between Apple Music and YouTube.

Google has also announced new entertainment options for Home, including nonpremium Spotify usage, HBO Now streaming (with a Chromecast dongle), Soundcloud streaming, Netflix and more.

The most visual, and therefore most exciting, news is in Google Lens. And that number is not going to get any higher, while Google is talking about how they get Android into the hands of the next billion people with Android Go.
