Android technology is omnipotent and everyone is aware about it. In the beginning of the event, Mr Sundar Pichai, the senior vice president of Google opined that Android has around 1 billion active users. The event initiated with the launch of ‘Android One’ program. This program is aimed at unifying the android experience for the smartphone developers and users.

“Android L” Version Launched

Android’s L version was launched which featured a new cross platform UI known as Material Design. This version has offered precise tools to the developers so that they can make customized typography, colour as well as grid changes. It will also enable the designers to make smooth animations through 60 fps by using Polymer, which is a prototyping tool.

Wear, drive and watch Android

Google made a presentation of its Android Wear SDK to flaunt some functionalities of Android wearables. The touchscreen user interface will enable the users to swipe across Google Now cards as well as other supported applications from their paired smartphone, and give the “Ok Google” prompt for creating reminders, making notes, setting alarms, making calls and more. As soon as the user will install app from the play-store of one’s smartphone, a wearable counterpart will be installed on their smart watches and the features will get synced.

Voice Enabled Technology for Drivers

The Android Auto technology, which is a voice-enabled technology was also announced. It can be utilized by the users to connect the devices while driving.

So when one connects the driver’s smartphone with Android Auto car, it will offer shortcut to different locations and will give suggestions for seamless navigation. This technology will be released at the end of this year.

Entertainment is now sure to get a twist through Android TV which will enable the viewers to watch live TV and YouTube clips. What’s more is people will be able to use remote control as well as smart watch for controlling the TV.

To enhance the gaming experience of the users, Google has made it possible to get the Playstore on Android TV!

ChromeCast Control

Gone are the days when you had to be on the same Wi-Fi network for casting content to ChromeCast! One can now search the nearest devices by connecting on cloud. In case ChromeCast does not identify your device, it will ask for your pin.

Apps: Now Compatible with Chromebook:

Android technology has now become robust enough to send notifications to the Chrome book for giving a perfect user experience. It will be compatible with Chromebook including Evernote, Vine and Flipboard.
