You'll soon be able to send money with Google Assistant

At a time when users are increasingly concerned about cyber security, Google has launched Play Protect, a feature that will protect Android devices from harmful apps.

This year's Google I/O developer conference brings a host of new interesting features and new products lineup. The Play Store will also highlight Go-optimized apps, and Google will provide low-spec versions of its own applications, including Chrome, Gboard, and Youtube. According to the reports, this Android Go will run on devices with 512MB or 1GB RAM and will have specialized apps that will use fewer resources like YouTubeGo.

There are also some clever context-aware editing tools: during the demo, Google showed how its new app could digitally remove the links of a chain fence to reveal a baseball player standing behind. With the new feature Suggested Sharing, Google Photos will not only remind you to share- it will automatically select the right photos and even suggest who you should send them based on who was in the photos. However this new android system has new tiny little changes here and there that enhance the user functionality and give you a better visual interface without necessarily being visible. Users will merely need to scroll up to see what they've been asking before. This means that more countries will benefit from Google Home's integration, beating Amazon's Echo and Alexa services.

So far Google Assistant has been about easily accomplishing tasks by virtue of voice commands. Ultimately, the goal of Instant Apps is to make apps readily available for users and save a lot of storage space by just having a mini version of the desired app.

What's more, Google said the Assistant will soon be able to understand and respond in French, German, Portuguese and Japanese. All of the said devices that are enrolled in the program will receive over-the-air updates to the latest Android operating systems that are available.

One of the big additions Google is making is a feature called "Vitals" for Google Play, which helps developers spot issues within apps that can negatively impact things like battery life or device security.
