[Podcast] The Google I/O 2017 recap: Lens, Assistant & more
In this week's episode, we recap some of the bigger news and announcements from Google I/O 2017, with audio from the company's main keynote on Wednesday.
The Google news was fast and furious this week, with numerous announcements coming from its annual developers’ conference, Google I/O 2017. The event is wrapping up today, so this week’s episode of Marketing Land Live offers a look back at some of the bigger announcements that will impact online marketers.
Much of the focus was on Google Assistant, the company’s smart/virtual assistant that originally powered Google Home devices and has since expanded to Android phones and — as of this week — the iPhone, too. Google made a number of updates to Assistant’s capabilities, including an interesting tie-in with yet another new Google product called Google Lens. That’s an AI-powered visual search tool that turns your smartphone camera into a pretty powerful search box.
We have audio explaining these new developments directly from Wednesday’s Google I/O keynote, featuring Google CEO Sundar Pichai, along with Scott Huffman and Rishi Chandra.
