Google IO liveblog: the 2017 keynote updates in real-time
12:00PM: The Google IO keynote has officially ended. But our coverage goes on in the all-encompassing Google IO news hub. The major theme? Google is transitioning from a mobile first company to an AI first company. No, mobile isn't dead, but it's becoming less of a focus with every company investing in artificial intelligence.
Google wants its Google Assistant to lead the way, and with new Google Photos, Google Home and exciting DayDream VR announcements, but made some significant progress today.
Now... we're off to check out the demo stations at Google IO. We didn't see a lot of hardware like the Google Pixel 2, but we did see a lot of the software that will come to that phone with the debut of the Android O beta and new features.
Thanks for joining us for this minute-by-minute liveblog. Android out!
11:58AM: Google has one more trick up its sleeve for the Google IO keynote. It's using machine learning to help you find a job. This could be a big blow to other career-finding sites. Finding relevant jobs in your area, and helping employers find the right applicants with what Google calls a "power tool" could be an economic game changer. 
11:53AM: Google is about to wrap-up its Google IO keynote, and it's once again ending things with machine learning and how it can help people in health. In its latest scenario, it's using a platform called TensorFlow to help better diagnose mammograms with a self-taught high schooler using open source tools to make progress in this field.
11:50AM: Google has teased the second generation of AR phones with the Asus Zenfone AR we saw at CES 2017 . You'll notice that from AR tablets to phones, we're getting smaller and smaller devices that can do augmented reality. Pretty soon, it may be available in your normal phone, not a specialized one.
11:47AM: Google has teased the second generation of AR phones with the Asus Zenfone AR we saw at CES 2017 . You'll notice that from AR tablets to phones, we're getting smaller and smaller devices that can do augmented reality. Pretty soon, it may be available in your normal phone, not a specialized one.
11:45 AM: You won't need a phone to become part of Google's DayDream VR experience. It's announcing a standalone headset with partners with Qualcomm, a reference design blueprint.
HTC and Lenovo are two of the companies making standalone DayDream VR headsets. Vive especially has some expertise in this field with the HTC Vive, so that's exciting it's finally getting into tetherless VR.
11:44AM: Big VR surprises happening right now: Google Daydream VR is coming to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, giving you a different way to experience virtual reality than Samsung's Gear VR platform.
11:38AM: Android Go and YoTube Go is Google's ways of saving your data, which is great for all users. It's especially important for Google's spread into the developing world. It's not much for the Western world, including the US and UK, but the wider the Android audience gets, the better for the end-user.
11:33AM: The Android O beta will be made available starting today. That's great news for non-developers who wants to check out these features before the end of the summer, when we expect the Android O name and release date to come into full view.
11:31AM: Google is officially supporting a brand new programming language: Kotlin. it's fully Android runtime compatible and compatible with developers' existing code.
A new language is a great way to move beyond C language and take on Apple's new-ish language, Swift.
11:28AM: Google's Android O update is getting a big security push, dubbed Google Play Protect. But the biggest problem are sideloaded apps, so we'll see how this does for the most vulnerable Android users.
OS Optimizations is the next feature. Boot time will be twice as fast on the Google Pixel. Remember when the Google Nexus 6 took a minute and a half just to boot up from an off-state. A lot can change in three years. 
11:24AM: Autofill with Google is expanding to apps. If you're trying to log into an app like Twitter, for example, and because you've logged into Twitter on the web with Google Chrome, you can easily log into the app now. This will make setting up new phones or other device a snap. Phone reviews everywhere (who setup new phones on a weekly basis) are cheering.
Here's another feature Smart Text Selection. You'll be able to select text like an address more easily – getting more of what you want and none of the text you don't.
11:23AM: Notification Dots will be the second big Android O feature. Like iOS and Samsung phones, you'll see notification bubbles on top of app icons. Why this wasn't done before was perplexing, but it'll finally be here this summer.
11:22AM: Picture-in-picture is the first big Android O feature announced today. All you have to do is press the home button while watching a video, and you can multitask while still watching that window in a corner (any you chose). It'll remain there until you swipe the video away.
11:20AM: Android O is coming "later this some," according to Google, and we're in for more fluid experiences and better battery life.
11:18AM: Okay. big news incoming after the slow YouTube news. Android's Dave Burke just took the stage to make some Android O announcements.
11:13AM: How are Super Chats using AI? You can perform actions, like turning on and off lights or dumping a bunch of water on your favorite creator. Google demoed it with the YouTube team Slow Mo Guys, pelting them with water 500 balloons, raising $500 for charity.
11:11AM: Super Chats are being demoed. It's a previously announced feature that that lets you pay money to have your comment pinned to the fast-moving live chats on YouTube live streams. These pinned messages are a great way to get your messages seen and help creators earn money.
11:08AM: 360 videos are coming to the big screen. This will help you appreciate the ability to look around videos from every single angle on a large television. Previously, this was only available on smaller devices like, phones, tablets and computers. Now it's coming to the living room and you'll even be able to look around using a remote.
11:02AM: YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki just took the Google IO keynote stage, her first time on behalf of YouTube. It'll be interest if you announces new features or helps solve some of the problems YouTubers have experienced with openness and stopping the spread of controversial videos. It's a fine line.
10:59AM: So far, every Google IO keynote announcement seems connected, from Google Lens, to new Google Home features to Google Photos Shared Library and Photo Books.
What's liking them together? Machine learning and AI. It's really changing how we're interacting with our devices bit by bit. The long-term vision is clearly to free up your time spend on the devices and experience life more.
Next up, Google is shifting to YouTube announcements. Keep is locked to TechRadar's continuing liveblog for more Google IO keynote news announcements.
10:56AM: Google Photo Book is bringing your digital photos to life – at least in the form of hard copies. With machine learning, you can configure a photo book without the need to select the photos yourself. Luckily, you'll be able to make tweaks as you see fit. But the big legwork is all done for you. 
Photo Books is coming to the US first, and it'll cost $9.99.
10:54AM: Google says that it'll launch Suggested Sharing and Shared Library on Android, iOS and the web in the coming weeks. It's meant to be less about you worrying about sharing memories, and more about experiencing them.
10:51AM: Shared Library is a new feature that will automatically send your photos to a loved one. That's the ideal way to send photos to the spouse, for example, and it's automatically saved to their library.
But if you don't want to drown in a loved one's photos, Google says it'll select the most relevant photos using machine learning and send them off. Again, this is something coming to Android and iOS, so no matter the platform, you'll have your photos.
10:49AM: Google Photos Suggested Sharing will even send an SMS and/or email to recipients with full resolution photos. There'll also be a way to ask these people to contribute their own photos?
Will this be a game changer to fork over photos you never get around to sending to friends and family? Facebook has tried with before, but Google appears to be taking the idea up a notch with machine learning.
10:48AM: Google just called you "a great photographer, but a terrible person." Google Photos is going to help you upload those long, lost photos with a new feature called suggested sharing.
It'll not only remind you about share suggestions, but suggest people via the new Suggested Sharing feature.
10:46AM: The secret ingredient behind Google Photos is said to be curation for its 500M users and 1.2 million photos and videos uploaded everyday.
10:43AM: The fourth and final feature is visual responses, right on your TV. It's kind of like the last feature that's all about entertainment, but putting responses and results on your television screen. "Everything can be done in a hands-free way right from the comfort of my couch." 
10:40AM: Third feature –your favorite entertainment – involves Google Chromecast. You'll be able to ask your Google Home to play HBO, Spotify free and other streaming platforms to play through your Chromecast. It's almost as if your cheap streaming adapter just got voice commands.
10:37AM: The second new feature for Google Home is hands-free calling, and it'll be free to make these calls in the US and Canada. Chandra made a belated mother's day call to his mom.
What's great is that he says that Google Home called his mom, but if his wife had asked to "call mom," it'd call her mom. So important.
He just called it, "the ultimate hands-free speakerphone."
10:36AM: Four new features are coming to Google Home. Proactive Assistance is coming to the speaker, with simple, but important messages about upcoming events. It'll warn you of flight time changes and upcoming appoints, for example.
10:35AM: Google Home is now the focus on the stage, and Google's Rishi Chandra says it's expanding beyond the US and UK with new countries able to order the company's smart speaker: Canada, Austraulia, France Germany and Japan.
10:33AM:  Actions on Google is the bot-run Google Assistant platform that's expanding today with payments. So in addition to ordering from a restaurant, you'll be able to pay with your Google account when you check out.
Your phone will talk to you just like you were talking to someone at the store. You're in control with what you share at every step of the way, promises to Google.
10:30AM: Google Assistant on the iPhone is huge news because not only is Google competing with Apple, it's also learning from Apple's vast audience. That means its machine learning capabilities will get even better. That's an advantage that Apple won't have, as we don't expect to see Siri on Android any time soon.
10:29AM: Google Assistant is coming to the iPhone, right before Apple is supposed to announce a big update to Siri. Ouch! So in addition to Android devices, TVs, wearables and car systems, Google is coming to the iPhone.
10:26AM: Google Lens and Google Assistant are combining here, so you'll be able to learn about what you're seeing without having to ask about it with your voice. 
The best example is visual translation. Tap the Google Lens icon, point the camera at an item on a Japanese menu (when you don't know the language) and ask Google Assistant "What does it look like?" and it'll give you photos. You don't need to input menu items you don't know about just to know what you're ordering before it comes out.
10:25AM: Huffman is talking about Google is cracking the hard machine learning challenge: how you can speak to AI bots with natural language and still get relevant responses. That's a giant hurdle.
10:24AM: : Google is showing a video montage of Google Assistant, with a big focus on the smart home. Scott Huffman is taking the stage, and we're expect big news one year after the company revealed Google Home and Assistant for the first time. What's next? We're about to find out. There's a lot to prove with Amazon Echo Show with Alexa and the the rumors Siri Speaker coming soon.
10:22AM: Google is pushing computers and machine learning so far is that you'll be able to use AutoDraw to have computers draw for you. It's now about being lazy, but teaching computers to do incredible things that haven't been possible before. Sundar joked that even he can successfully draw with AutoDraw.
10:18AM: Now the Google IO keynote is getting geeky, which is a good fit for the developer-filled audience. We're talking neuralnets building neuralnets with what Google calls AutoML. How will end users see benefits? Well, healthcare is the first big initiative of this machine learning benefit. 
Machine learning can help detect the spread of cancer thanks to advanced Digital Pathology. "Pathologists can improve diagnosis." It'll also apply to basic sciences with DNA Sequencing.
10:14AM: Here are some uses for Google Lens, as demoed at the Google IO keynote. See restaurants in front of you? Well, Google knows where you are (because it knows everything about you via its knowledge graph) and will present reviews and information over top of the building.
Even better, crawling under your co-workers desk in order to get the SSID and password of a Wi-Fi router? Snap a photo and it'll actually parse out the information and connect you. There was definitely applause for that first-world problem.
10:12AM: Sundar is talking up the progress made in photos, with some light applause. The magic behind Google Photos is astounding. But it's just the beginning.
With that, Google Lens has been announced. It uses the camera to identify what you're seeing in real life. It's like Bixby, but maybe it'll actually be useful.
10:09AM: Smart reply is coming from Gmail. It's the handy feature you didn't use when you decided not to download (or at least actively use) Google Allo. Now you'll be able to use this quick reply feature to answer your emails.
10:08AM: "This week, we've crossed over 2 billion active users on Android," said Sundar. But... there's always a but, computing is evolving again.
10:06AM: Sundar has taken the stage and immediately talking big numbers, in the billions, between users and YouTube views. Google Drive will be the next to break billion user breakthrough at 800+ million. "The scale of these products are amazing," he said.
10:03AM: It's started. Right on time, we're now into the introduction video (a cute animated short) for the Google IO keynote, right before Google CEO Sundar Pichai takes the stage.
09:48AM: There's a lot of work that goes into bringing you news and updates of live events like the Google IO keynote. These are just two of the people behind the madness, Michelle (left) and me, Matt Swider (right). We're psyched to be in Mountain View on the Google campus to bring you the latest announcements. Just minutes to go now. 
09:34AM: We're less than 30 minutes from Google CEO Sundar Pichai taking the Google IO keynote stage, and we're hearing some amped up tunes with 'Audio powered by Android.' The techno music vibe technology goes with all of the gadgetry here in the audience.
08:54AM: We're one hour from our Google IO liveblog minute-by-minute updates and already seated in the outdoor Amphitheater. What are we hearing besides pop music blaring over the speakers?  Rumors about a standalone VR headset. It's been talked about by the non-media audience. News travels quickly. What does that mean for Google Daydream ? Is it going to accelerate the growth of VR? We'll know very soon.
08:12AM: It's official. We're at Google IO 2017, and for all of the people who say "Picture or it didn't happen," we've got that now.
We're huddled with the world's press at Google's Shoreline Amphitheater waiting to go into the keynote. It'll begin at 10AM on the dot.
12:00AM: We're kicking off our Google IO liveblog this morning in Mountain View, California, and we're in the company of thousands of  Android fans 
They have a reason to be excited. Google's May 17 keynote begins in 10 hours, and it'll usher in the future of Android software and hardware.
Google has turned IO into a developer-focused outdoor festival that celebrates coding and innovation as an art. And the Android community plays the artist.
There's definitely a start-up vibe to Google IO, but you're still going to hear a lot of big impact announcements straight from the Alphabet company.
We'll be covering all of the news here in real-time over the next several hours. Here's some background while we sleep.
Watch the Google IO livestream Google IO liveblog start time
We're going to begin the Google IO 2017 liveblog around 7AM – and everything will be in Pacific Time. After all, we're in 'Google Country' right now.
The actual keynote begins at 10AM, with doors opening an hour in advance. That's usually how long it takes us to get Wi-Fi working properly – Google Wifi's mesh connection may help this year.
We'll provide minute-by-minute updates of what Google CEO Sundar Pichai says on stage and what your Android phone will look like (software-wise) in four months.
Google IO liveblog: what to expect
What's next for the Alphabet company? Over the next 12 to 24 months, your phone and speakers will get smarter, with Google rallying behind Assistant.
AI is driving all of the major players in tech, including Microsoft, Amazon, Apple and Facebook but Google's knowledge graph has so much data to work with.
Google Home is the company's budding AI speaker product, and we're likely to see how it'll answer the new Amazon Eco Show and its smart Alexa assistant.
Android O is a sure thing at Google IO. This is where Google likes to tease new features for its mobile operating system and the web.
Will we see Android Wear , Chromebook, car tech and lots of lots of VR tech. You can read more about from the link below.
Google IO 2017: everything you need to know

Live now: Google I/O 2017 keynote updates
Are we another step closer to sentient computers?
Google’s 2017 I/O keynote is happening now, where Google CEO Sundar Pichai is introducing new products and sharing more information about the company’s “AI first” future. Here’s a running list of what happened that matters.
Google can now use your camera as an input device. Google announced a “Lens” feature for its Assistant service that will tell you information about what’s in front of your phone camera: What type of flower you’re looking at, info about the restaurant across the street, etc. This combines a bunch of tech buzzwords — AI, AR, machine learning, computer vision — into one feature, and highlights how Google’s massive collection of data about the world can be used together. It's also another example of how Google is trying to get ahead of the latest preference for photos versus text.
Google’s latest user numbers: There are now 2 billion active Android devices, 500 million active Google Photos users, and 1.2 billion videos and photos uploaded to Google Photos every day.
Don’t like writing emails? Don’t have to. Gmail on Android and iOS is getting an automated-response feature called Smart Reply, which lets you choose up to three responses that are based on the received email. You can add more to a response after selecting it if you want, or can just send the automated response as-is.
More Google in more places, in more languages. Google Assistant is rolling out to the iPhone — though it won’t (and can’t) replace Siri as the default assistant — and will be available in more languages like French and German.
Hands-free calling on Google Home. “Hey Google, call mom.” Dial out with your personal number when it detects your voice. No setup required, according to today’s presentation. (Amazon launched calls for Alexa this week, too.) It’s the new landline phone.
Google Photos has a cure for laziness. Google’s photo service, which the company says has 500 million users, can now suggest what photos you should share — and with whom — with a feature called suggested share. It can also automatically share photos with an option called shared libraries. The big idea: Most photos just sit there on your phone. It’s better for you and your friends (and for Google!) if you share more of them.

Grab your sunscreen and sunglasses, because Google's biggest show is almost here! Google I/O 2017 kicks off May 17th at 1PM ET (10AM PT, 6PM UK) and we'll bring you all the coverage live from the show. We will once again be forced to go outside, as the event is again being held at the Shoreline Amphitheater and in tents set up in the surrounding parking lot.
The event will no doubt see the launch of the second version of the Android O Developer Preview , but other than that, we really have no idea what to expect. We just updated the Google Tracker with a huge list of possibilities, but narrowing down what will and won't launch at the show is the tricky part.
The convention runs May 17-19, and we'll cover all the news from there, including hands-on impressions of devices and maybe even an interview or two. Join us for all the surprises starting at 1pm EDT/10am PDT Wednesday!

Google I/O 2017: start time, live blog, and schedule for today’s keynote
Google I/O is Google’s annual developer conference, a three-day event where the company details the future of its various products and services, along with hosting education sessions for creators and developers who use those services.
The biggest news from the conference is expected to be announced at the opening keynote, hosted by Google CEO Sundar Pichai at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California. We’re not expecting too much in the way of new hardware this year — recently, Google tends to have been saving that kind of announcement for October — but there should be plenty of news on the software side of things.
Google Assistant and Google Home are expected to be big focuses, as Google works to continue to build out...

Apple’s WWDC 2017 keynote just wrapped, where key executives Craig Federighi, Phil Schiller, and, of course, Tim Cook, took the stage to announce updates headed to iPhones, MacBooks, Apple TV, and more.
The rumors for this year’s WWDC came in the final hours leading up to the event, with hints of new hardware and, of course, software news for developers to help prep the release of consumer updates in the fall. We were also anticipating the company to finally take Siri up against the likes of Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant on the hardware and smart home front — and it looks like it arrived in the form of the Apple HomePod.

323 d ago Venture Beat :: Thoughts on Apple’s 29th annual worst WWDC keynote ever
Read on Venture Beat | Share | Tweet

Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference is a bit like Burning Man. The favorite pastime of people who tend to go every year (or watch) is to complain about how it wasn’t as good as it used to be.
But they keep going because they believe there is always a chance that somehow they will recapture the mythical magic they imagine has been lost.
I’ll confess, I love me some snark and indulge in it quite heavily during the bloated gabfests that Apple holds each year. Apple executives treat every incremental update as if it were a religious artifact pulled directly out of the Arc of the Covenant. The skewering of such self-importance is always well deserved.
I will be forever sad that I could not be live on Twitter on Monday for the unveiling of the name “HomePod.” More like, Oh, god. How did that slip by branding quality control? Ooof. People will still buy millions, though.
But I’m less down with the sweeping post-keynote condemnations following the 30th edition of WWDC that proclaim “Apple is basically a parody of itself” and WWDC was “An Event Lacking Vision From A Company Without A Visionary.”
Because even if WWDC seems like a high-tech presentation by nerdy carnival barkers, it simply represents two important realities.
The first is that this is the beginning of a week-long conference for developers. That may be stating the obvious, but it seems to be forgotten in these post-mortem takes.
Yes, the non-stop litany and hyping of incremental advancements can become mind-numbing for those of us who want them to just roll a self-driving Apple Car on stage and send us all into wild paroxysms of euphoria. But for the overwhelming number in attendance, or watching around the world, these details matter profoundly to their livelihood. They will determine how and why they develop their applications and services around Apple’s products.
Likewise, as hardware sales overall have softened, Apple is more dependent than ever on its relationship with its developers. Of course, this has always been the key to Apple’s success. But as services, including App Store sales, have become the strongest source of Apple’s growth, the company is counting on these developers to help it get more value from its customers than ever before.
The WWDC keynote is playing perfectly to this constituency.
And that brings me to the second point. WWDC simply reflects what Apple is today: a massive, sprawling corporation with an expanding line of products that was unimaginable a decade ago. Average users and journalists dream that each product will be a game-changer hurled down like a lightning bolt to disrupt everything. If not, it considered a failure.
The Apple Watch is a good example. It is not a product for everyone. But it’s also true that to the extent a smartwatch market exists, it is dominated by Apple. Then there’s the HomePod. I can’t personally imagine ever shelling out that much for a speaker, no matter how advanced. But some people will.
And, incrementally, Apple will continue to expand its ecosystem — step by step, rather than in one explosive product. Over time, these products will work a bit better. A little bit more AI here. A few new features there. The company could expand much more rapidly if it dropped the prices on gadgets like Apple TV, Apple Watch, and the HomePod. But obviously, Apple is content with the adoption rate for now, so I don’t expect that to change any time soon.
That smells like failure to many, who see Apple as more than just a company. But I’m sorry to report that Apple is a company, and one that is managing a long-term transition from hardware to services fairly well. It still has much to prove as its moves into territory where Google and Amazon have the high ground.
Yet there’s a reason investors continue to pump Apple’s stock to all-time highs. There’s a reason that stock price has triple over the past four years, and it’s not just the growing buybacks and dividends (though they have helped.).
Apple remains king as far as developers are concerned. And their loyalty and enthusiasm will play a large role in helping Apple navigate the changing tides of technology until all the pieces are in place for the next, next, next, next big thing.

Current mobile VR headsets like the Samsung Gear VR and Daydream View have 3DoF (three degrees of freedom), only allowing you to look around in VR from a fixed point (as if your head is on a tripod in the middle of a panoramic bubble). In that dynamic, you can't get a truly immersive sense that you're in another environment.  Read more...

SEATTLE—In a welcome break from tradition, Microsoft is holding its annual developer conference, Build, in Seattle this year. We're live on the scene to enjoy America's best weather and learn all about Microsoft's plans for its developer platform. The day 1 keynote was all about Azure and AI; for day 2, we're expecting to hear a lot more from the Windows and Devices Group.
The day 2 keynote kicks off at 8:30am PDT on Thursday (4:30pm UK, or check here for your local time ), May 11, and we'll be liveblogging it. With Windows 10's next update, codenamed Redstone 3, less than six months away, we're expecting to at last see the official unveiling of Neon , the revised and refreshed Windows look and feel.
We didn't hear much about Xamarin on day 1, either, so we'd expect to hear more from that team and its continuing work to make Windows the best operating system for multiplatform mobile development.

374 d ago Re/code :: Facebook’s big F8 developer conference is this week: Here’s what to expect
Read on Re/code | Share | Tweet

Mark Zuckerberg’s keynote starts Tuesday at 10 am PT.
You can expect a lot of updates this week from the world’s largest social network.
Facebook will hold its annual developer conference on Tuesday and Wednesday, an event where the company has traditionally laid out plans and updates for some of its key initiatives, like messaging, artificial intelligence and live video.
The conference, called F8, has moved from San Francisco to San Jose, where Facebook is expecting close to 4,000 attendees. The event will kick off with a keynote from CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday morning.
F8 tends to be more technically focused — it’s for developers, after all — and has traditionally centered around Facebook’s flagship service and Messenger. Other Facebook properties, like Instagram and WhatsApp and Oculus, aren’t usually involved, and you can expect the same this year.
Look for Facebook to focus on Messenger again, and its connectivity efforts to bring internet to remote areas around the world. The company may also shed some light on its secretive hardware efforts, including new cameras and augmented reality, according to Business Insider .
The updates Facebook tends to announce here are wide-ranging. In 2014, it unveiled its ad network, Audience Network , at F8. In 2015, the big news was that Messenger, its standalone messaging app, was opening up to developers so they could start building customer service and shopping features inside the app.
Last year, Facebook extended the conference to two days, launched its bot platform for Messenger, showed off “social” virtual reality , pushed deeper into live video and rolled out a 360-degree video camera .
Zuckerberg also used his keynote in 2016 to lay out the company’s 10-year plan, which included his first public mention of augmented reality . Zuckerberg recently penned a lengthy manifesto about how he hopes Facebook can change the world, and it’s likely he’ll take his time onstage to follow up on those ambitions.
So a lot usually happens at F8. TechCrunch has reported on a few of this year’s product updates: More bots for Messenger groups, and a platform so outsiders can build more features for the Facebook camera.
Whatever Facebook has in store, you’ll be able to read about at Recode.
Zuckerberg’s keynote is set for 10 am PT Tuesday morning.
