Google brings Assistant to iPhone, announces more product releases

Google has further pinched Apple by adding its Assistant service to iPhones. The service may directly compete with Siri. Google Assistant appeared last year on Android devices.

Sundar Pichai, Google chief executive, talked about the increasing focus on voice recognition products, “Humans are interacting with computing in more natural and immersive ways. Let’s start with voice. We’ve been using voice as an input across many of our products. That’s because computers are getting much better at understanding speech. We have had significant breakthroughs, but the pace, and even since last year, has been pretty amazing to see.”

Google made many other product announcements at its annual developer conference, Google I/O.

Google also released software to easily create photo books, even via cellphones, and Google Photo Books. Google Lens will increase image recognition possibilities. Google Home will expand capabilities with new service tie-ins.
