Google I/O 2015: What should we expect from this big event?
Since Apple has its own WWDC, Google had to have its own event. Google I/O stands for Google “Input/Output” and it is an event where the big search engine is announcing their latest products.
Google I/O 2015 event will be held in San Francisco during May 28-29, 2015. So, the question is: what should we expect from this big event? Here a few rumors of what we will most likely hear at this upcoming event.
Until now, Google didn’t say anything about the upcoming Android M. However, Google has announced the Android L during the Google I/O conference that was held in June before releasing the new operating system to the public in November 2014.
Rumors say that the upcoming Android M will come with built-in support for smart home appliances. We remind you that Apple did this last year, on their iOS 8 with the HomeKit SDK. There are high chances that the upcoming Android M will feature some similar SDK in order offer smart home integration.
Another feature that the Android fans are hoping to see on the upcoming Android M version is the Quick Reply to notifications. This way, the users will be able to just tap on the notification and instantly reply to an email, text message or WhatsApp/Facebook message. At the same time, the Android fans want to see multi-window support, which will allow you to have two applications open on the screen at once.
If the rumors prove to be right, Google is currently working on a new Glass 2 version. We’re pretty sure that they are not going to show off the new Glass version but they might talk a bit of what to expect from this upcoming device.
Improved Online Photo Storage Service
There are rumors which say that Google is planning to release a new online photo storage service. There are rumors which say that the new Google photo storage service will look mostly the same as Apple’s iCloud Photo Library or OS X’s Photos application.
We already know that Google is into the self-driving cars. There are rumors which say that Apple wants to bring this system, which means that Google will need to react fast and release a new major version of Android Auto. We agree that, currently, Google has a pretty good Android Auto, but that doesn’t mean that Apple can’t come with something better.
