Smart Home Updates From Google At The Google I/O 2021
Google’s annual developer conference, called I/O, was a huge success.
The event featured Google execs, developers, and other industry panelists taking to the stage to pull back the curtain on a number of Google-flavored tech advancements.
A major Android version upgrade was also announced along with modifications to the Google Assistant. Here are the most important points for the smart home. The main highlight of the I/O event was the unveiling of LaMDA, a language platform that Google was more than excited to boast about. It is the new conversation technology that will help bring a conversational flow to the responses to user queries. The conversation is natural, well-paced, and beyond intriguing. From a smart home perspective, this will be implemented on Nest Audio systems establishing smoother conversations between the users and the system. With LaMDA, the simple ask-and-receive nature of voice commands is still in place, but users will be able to expect much more intuitive and smoother-sounding responses from Google Assistant.
Google also announced that users will soon be able to control and manage content on Android TV devices using an app on their phones. The digital remote concept is also being extended to the car space where users will be able to use their phones as digital keys for their cars. Select Pixel and Samsung phones will be able to be used as digital keys as part of Android 12.
Google is working on a tool that will allow users to snap a photo of a problem area on their body. After answering a few questions about their symptoms, the picture and their answers will be analyzed, after which Google will provide them with an estimated diagnosis of what their skin condition could be, along with tips on how to treat it, in case they have any rashes or bumps. Google also introduced Project Starline that will enable users to interact with each other on 3D video calls.
