Here’s a recap of Google I/O 2015 and a detailed list of everything that the company announced at its software event.
We could not see any demo of the complete new Android M operating system at I/O 2015, but the Google team was showcasing the two main new features, namely Android Pay and Google Now On Tap.Basically, Now on tap will allow users to get a number of contextual information while you are browsing your apps in Android M without the need to leave the need to leave the current application.

Google has officially announced Android Pay at Google I/O 2015, it will be part of the Android M release later this year and it will also be supported on NFC compatible devices running Android 4.4 (Kitkat) and above. Android Pay can be used with Android M’s new built-in fingerprint support: purchases can be confirmed using users’ fingerprints. Sounds familiar? Sure, Google is playing catch up with Apple Pay…At Google I/O, […]
Chromecast is the surprise hit that Google delivered over a year ago. So far it has sold millions of these little HDMI dongles, allowing users to add “smart” features to their televisions as long as they have an HDMI port. It was confirmed at the Google I/O 2015 event earlier this week that several new features will be added to Chromecast now that Google has opened them up to developers, who […]
Developer support is essential for the survival of a software platform in this day and age, and Google wants you to know that it has plenty of developer support for its wearable platform. During the keynote address at Google I/O 2015 today the company revealed that so far developers have created more than 4,000 apps for Android Wear. It was also revealed that Uber is launching an app for this platform, thus enabling Android Wear […]
Many companies are working on virtual reality headsets and while some of them might cost fortunes, there are some that are cheap enough to be in the range of the masses. Google has a completely different approach to virtual reality. Last year it launched Cardboard, a virtual reality viewer and this year at I/O 2015 it has unveiled a new version of Google Cardboard that also has support for the iPhone.
We recently reported that Google is going to unveil a new operating system for the Internet of Things at I/O 2015 and that’s precisely what it has done today, among other things. Brillo is the company’s new operating system for connected devices aimed at making them work together for smarter living spaces. Google has also announced a new common language for connected devices called Weave.
HBO confirmed its internet TV streaming service at Apple’s Spring Forward event in March and as reported, the service was made exclusive to Apple’s devices for three months. That exclusivity has now ended. It has been confirmed today at Google I/O 2015 that HBO Now is coming to Android, the standalone application will soon be available from the Google Play Store.
The latest Android Lollipop distribution figures are encouraging as they appear to have almost doubled from the previous month. This is a huge increase which seems to suggest that the latest build of Android is being adopted rather quickly, so how will its successor fare? We suppose it really depends on what Google is bringing to the table but the good news is that we won’t have to wait too […]
Last year we were treated to a bevy of Android Wear devices from a bunch of different OEMs. It was an exciting year although for the most part, the wearables shown off appeared to be more or less the same in terms of hardware and features, with the main difference being its design. However this year, Google plans on “blowing our socks off” with new wearables.According to the Google I/O […]
Google I/O 2015 is around the corner and we have a slight idea about what all is going to take place at the much awaited conference, that includes range of latest wearables from Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects division. The event also holds the potential announcement of Google’s upcoming version of operating system succeeding Lollipop, dubbed as Android M.
