Google I/O 2024: What to Expect?

Gemini AI Enhancements 

It's expected that Google will integrate Gemini AI features into its several applications, such as Gmail, Google Workspace, Chrome, and Maps. Rumour has it that the generative AI technology will become increasingly prevalent in all upcoming Android devices, potentially displacing Google Assistant.

The tech behemoth is likely to introduce ‘Pixie,’ a brand-new virtual assistant that will only be available on Pixel devices and powered by Gemini. In addition to text and speech input, the new assistant may allow users to exchange photographs. 

Android 15

At the event, Google is expected to reveal the Android 15 rollout date and new features. It's unlikely that the version's design will alter while it's still in beta. It might, however, receive updates to enhance security, productivity, and user privacy. Some of the noteworthy features can include improved battery life, new tablet lock-screen widgets and satellite messaging, as well as a Private Space option for increased privacy.

Google TV, Wear OS 5, and Other Highlights

There may be announcements on enhancements for Google's smart TV platforms at the upcoming conference. Market rumours indicate that a 4K Chromecast that is more powerful and effective than its predecessor would be released.
