Support for the Google Assistant SDK is now available on all Android Things certified development boards, following a partnership with AIY Projects earlier this month.
Even though smartphones have transformed daily life for millions of people, these gadgets' daily lives are sometimes woefully short thanks to battery limitations and the fact that some apps (cough cough, Facebook, cough) are notorious power hogs.
Ahead of I/O, Google is showing off its next step in automotive software: an Android version of touchscreen vehicle consoles and infotainment systems.
Well, Google has been testing Android apps to work on Chrome OS.

We're just hours away from the start of this year's Google I/O conference and the rumor mill is still churning like insane.
The Assistant debuted previous year on Google's own hardware, and the company has gradually extended the tool to devices from other manufacturers running on its Android operating system. It will soon support non-premium Spotify accounts, Soundcloud, and Deezer, and Google will also add Bluetooth support so you can play other stuff directly from your phone, tablet, or laptop as you could with any Bluetooth speaker.
In any case, the annual developer conference Google I/O 2017 is an important event for Google. Google says the feature has already driven 12 percent of replies in the Inbox app, so it is likely to receive a lot more use as it expands to more users. Now that is a massive scale to operate at, and as Pichai humbly stated, Google is proud to serve such a vast user base. The new TPUs which can be rigged together to form supercomputers will be able to carry forward the AI-driven vision by helping developers train massive neural nets and even make inferences. The report also says that it will integrate with other Google apps installed on users' iPhones. It will first be available as part of Google's voice-controlled digital assistant - which bears the straightforward name "Google Assistant" - and Photos app. So far it's been limited to just basic features that are more than matched by other smart assistants like Amazon's Alexa and Apple's Siri. So Google will talk about this feature in the event.
Onlookers are expecting to hear about everything from software tweaks for particular services through to full-on new versions of Google apps and a major release for the Android mobile operating system. And, most interestingly a voice-controlled digital assistant now available on some smartphones may be put up. Some of the unveiled products won't be out until later this year. These gadgets are expected to compete with many products from Apple and Microsoft too.
