The Google I/O keynote and the Dev Keynote were held on 17th May. If you participated in the Google I/O 2017 or a Google I/O Extended, you know how wonderful is it. This article is for all ICT enthusiasts who could participate in the Google I/O 2017 or a Google I/O Extended event in your area and for all who couldn't participate.

As you can see, Indians (including the chief executive officer in Google) have taken many main roles in Google. This time Google Keynote showed the Indians authority in Google ;)

There were not only the Google keynote and the dev keynote, but also so many sessions, codelab events and a innovation exhibition.

Google introduced so many new technologies and features they brings to your life. Most of them are very important for software engineers and developers. And they were very interesting for non developers too. Some technologies and innovations, they introduced, can replace softwares like photoshop, gimp, etc. I have written down some keywords, they mentioned in the Google I/O 2017 keynote.
  • Google lens 
  • Google Assistant's new features 
  • Apple users can use Google Assistant 
  • New features in Google Photos (image recognition, automatic categorization, easy photo editing featues, etc) 
  • Google Home 
  • Google Smart Speaker 
  • google vital 
  • kotlin
  • android Go 
  • youtube go 
  • tango with google maps 
  • Standalone VR headsets 
  • expeditions -> AR 
  • New android version -> Android O (beta version)

These keywords are for all who couldn't participate for the Google I/O 2017 or a Google I/O Extended event and for all who couldn't concentrate even you participated for the event ;) Go through these keywords and find more. I think, you will be able to find things to learn until next Google I/O if you go through all these keywords.
