Watch: What's new in Android O and beyond, with Google

This week the folks at Google release the full collection of Google I/O 2017 talks in video form. That includes a selection of videos which identify the newest features in Android. That's Android, the operating system quite likely on the device you're reading this with right this minute – dive in and make the most of it!

Several sessions and chats and keynotes from Google are presented below, selected by SlashGear in the following order. Developers and Android users should keep an eye on the notes – not every talk will make a big hoot for every single person. Some users will find some talks terribly boring, while others will get so excited, their eyes will fry in their skulls like freshly cracked eggs.

The first talk is called, simply, "What's New in Android" and it's a "Beginner" chat for developers. Because it is a beginner lever chat, it's still valuable to users outside the developer realm. Google presented this talk as an "Overview of the latest developer-facing features in the Android platform, including the O Developer Preview SDK, the Support Libraries and other new and exciting developments."

The above talk was given by Google developers and leaders Chet Haase, Romain Guy, and Dan Sandler. Next is the most major keynote of the event series, the first big Google I/O 2017 keynote. This was given by the CEO of Google and all of his best buddies!

The next video is the first day's "Developer Keynote" from Google as given by Google's Jason Titus. Other presenters during the chat define Google's role in the developer outreach program. Pay special attention to the bit about Kotlin, the most exciting addition to the Google developer universe this year, by far.

Perhaps the most important session for developers that want to play a key role with Google in the future is the one that comes next. That is the "Building apps for the Google Assistant" session. "This session will explain how to plug into the Google Assistant services ecosystem. We'll cover everything from understanding the business use case and high level user interface design to implementation and growing usage."

The talk above was given by Google's Brad Abrams, Adam Coimba, and Vera Tzoneva. This is another content level: Beginner, so it's also valuable to the end user – at least somewhat.

Finally there's the extra-odd path of pathways to the next generation in virtual experiences. That is "VR, AR, and paths to immersive computing", a session for beginners, intermediate developers, and advanced developers alike. This talk took place in the main amphitheater at Google I/O on the second day at the same time as the first day's main keynote – that means it was important.

Above the VR, AR, and immersive computing session included Google's words: "Learn more about where we're headed and the investments we're making in virtual and augmented reality to build a platform for immersive computing." Six different developers and product masters from Google spoke at this presentation, including Andrew Doronichev, Erin Teague, Mike Jazayeri, Jennifer Holland, Clay Bavor, and the always epic Johnny Lee.
