Google I/O is, by it’s nature, a broad and vast conference covering massive amounts of information. When you step back and look at the numerous sessions, keynotes, chats, and sandboxes, it becomes almost overwhelming to try and parse all the data on offer into coherent thoughts.
This year’s Google I/O developer conference was chock full of awesome new goodies headed our way for Android, Google Assistant, Chrome OS and much more.

Another anticipated device debuted center stage in […]
This afternoon at Google’s 2019 I/O Keynote, many interesting things were highlighted and discussed, but one of the most jaw-dropping examples of Google’s current work was the news surrounding the next generation of the Google Assistant.

For Chrome OS and Chromebooks users, background updates are nothing new. We are all used to our devices downloading, installing and implementing updates in the background with little to no interuption to the user. Only upon completion of the update are users made aware of the fact that a new, fresh update is ready to […]
It was just last week we reported a new video being added to the ongoing bug tracker development of virtual desks on Chrome OS.
