8 things to expect at Google I/O 2019

On Tuesday, Google will kick off its annual I / O developer conference with a speech led by CEO Sundar Pichai and other company executives. This is where Google describes the many features and improvements that come with Android, Google Assistant and many other applications and services of the company during the next year.

This year will feel a bit different because Google is fully guaranteed to announce two new Pixel smartphones during the I / O presentation, adding a lower cost option in the middle of the typical smartphone update cycle. You can still expect to hear a lot about the advances in artificial intelligence, machine learning and, yes, even good searches throughout the course. Here is a preview of what will probably take time on Tuesday:

The Pixel 3A and 3A XL

There were already many leaks before this week, but a final wave basically confirmed everything there is to know about the next Average range of Google Pixel Phones – including prices. The Pixel 3A will start at $ 399, while the larger Pixel 3A XL with its 6-inch screen will cost $ 479.

Both devices are expected to offer a performance of the camera that is basically on par with the flagship phones Pixel 3 for a lot less money. Google made some cost cuts in other areas using less powerful processors, switching from a glass structure to a plastic one, and eliminating wireless charging. But hey, the headphone jack is back, and when is not that good news?

This is the most aggressive Google system that has been used in phone prices in years, which meant a cut even for OnePlus in an attempt to achieve a mid-year blow. The Pixel 3A and 3A XL will receive three years of software and security updates, as well as other features such as the call screen.

Nest Hub Max

Google prematurely unveiled a larger version, Nest brand on the company's Home Hub smart screen. The Nest Hub Max has a 10-inch screen and stereo speakers. Apart from that, we do not know much more about Hub Max, apart from the fact that you are probably running the same software that places a great emphasis on the Google Assistant and gives you a visual interface that can go anywhere in your home. We also do not know the price, but for the sake of comparison, the 7-inch Home Hub sells for $ 150.

As a Nest product (and because it has a built-in camera), it's also very likely that the Hub Max Take security features for the home that the Home Hub without a camera is simply unable to do. A smart screen and a smart camera in one? It sounds pretty good.

A more complete preview of Android Q

Sure, we are already a couple of beta versions in the development of Google's Android Q, but it is very likely that the company has been saving some of the most important announcements for its presentation on stage. I / O. The next major version of Android will offer users more flexible privacy controls, including the ability to limit applications to the tracking location only when they are actively used. A dark, color-themed mode and a much more sensitive sharing menu have also been present in the early beta releases, and Q is laying the groundwork for a future of collapsible phones.

Google also seems to be working to correct the gesture navigation on their Pixel phones, and there are even signs of a desktop mode similar to the Samsung DeX for when you connect your phone to an external screen. Surely, there are more that will eventually be part of the Q. With the update that will probably be released to consumers in late summer, we should have an idea of ​​Google's plans on Tuesday. Hopefully, that will include a new beta version as well.

More details about Google Stadia

Google introduced its cloud gaming service, Stadia, back into GDC. We know it will come this year, but Google has yet to share critical details, such as how much a subscription will cost. I / O may see another Stadia demonstration with more specific information about the consumer launch. But the company could also choose to wait for the E3 conference focused on the game (or even later) until it tells the full story.

New tricks of Google Assistant and Google Lens

Every year, Google likes to devote a good part of its time to show the progress it is making with Google Assistant and defend why it is becoming an assistant voice more intelligent and capable than Amazon's Alexa. Then there is Google Lens, which turns the camera of Android phones into a powerful artificial vision tool.

More improvements in Google Photos

It has become the de facto photo management application for many of us in recent years, and Google generally makes sure to introduce some new features in I / O that are intended to Google Photos in The following weeks and months.

Probably not much news from Android TV or Wear OS

Apparently, Google decided to remove the news from Wear OS before I / O starts this year. The platform is receiving new glanceable widgets that Google calls Tiles that allow you to easily consult the forecast, your next appointment in the calendar, news headlines, etc. The decision of the company to announce that before the central presentation tells me that the operating system Wear does not have much time on the stage.

There has been no other indication that Google has big plans to shake or redesign Android TV this year. The coolest Android TV-related product we saw in last year's I / O has not yet been commercialized, but the software is still finding its way to televisions from a wide variety of manufacturers, including Sony and Hisense.

What will be the demonstration that must be seen?

Last year, Google really surprised with Duplex's first public demonstration, which allows Google Assistant to make voice calls to local businesses and make reservations on their behalf. Realistically speaking, it will be difficult for the company to overcome that in 2019. But who knows what will happen.
