Android’s contextual awareness will carry over everywhere

At Google I/O, the company announced a few interesting tweaks to how they’ll treat all devices. From our smartphones to wearables, Google wants to offer a seamless experience. They also want to make sure we can take advantage of the technology as we need to, when we want to.

Context is important, and Google already does a fabulous job of keeping us contextually aware. They are aiming to improve on that, and will be putting us front and center. Voice recognition is going to be a big focus, and Google says they’re working on building the biggest and best around.

We’ll also be able to migrate across devices, and pick up on one where we left off on another. This isn’t a new idea, but it is when considering that Android is spreading to the car, smartwatches and other wearables, even appliances. The back-end contextual support is moving with us. Our smartphones will serve as the backbone for all this, too, since Google knows they can’t pry them out of our hands.

We’re still here at Google I/O, with Android Wear now making an appearance. We’re live and in the press box, snapping pics and bringing you all the fun news coming from Google! Be sure to check back often for all your info!
