Android, iOS: Google Assistant arrives in French this summer!

Google recently announced their Google Payment API and now the company has revealed that mobile payments are coming to the Google Assistant. In addition, those who had an unlocked bootloader on their Android phones could no longer download and install the Netflix app from the Google Play Store.

Google claims the feature will be smart enough so that you could auto-share only specific photos - say, of your kids - to your partner or a friend. Google's Lens App plays a major role in this particular feature. The Assistant's role in these is so users can give vocal commands and questions, such as telling it to preheat the oven, or asking how many cleaning pods are left in the dishwasher. This should nevertheless change quickly, Google Assistant leaving to the conquest of France this summer.

Google has announced Android Go, a lightweight version of Android O for devices with very low specs.

This step will allow Google to help its users to buy online things easily as one can choose its mode of payment and preferred card, enter the code and then just simply check out. You will just have to provide a password or identify yourself using the fingerprint scanner to securely send money using the Google Assistant. "To help in these times of need, we're launching Find My Device as part of Google Play Protect".

Google, which gets most of its revenue from its dominant search engine, also released a host of new features for Google Home, a speaker released a year ago. According to the company, the service will "roll out over the next few weeks" to all Android devices running the Google Play app. Google has also said that it will be looking at lowering the required minimum software version to Android 5.0 (Lollipop). Google Lens turns your Smartphone's camera into a Google Search. At the tech giant's annual developer conference, Google announced feature upgrades for the Google Home that would make it hard for the Amazon Echo to compete with.
