Video: Google I/O 2017 impressions from the AC editors

It's been a busy couple of days in Mountain View, with big announcements from Google around Android, VR, AR, AI and other acronyms. Google I/O is a platform for developers, enthusiasts and journalist to learn about what's next from the company, and this year's event continued many of the trends that Google kicked off in 2016: virtual reality, with the unveiling of Daydream 2.0 and standalone headsets from HTC and Lenovo.

Google Assistant became more capable with new regional launches for Google Home, and visual computing chops in Google Lens. And Android O became more fleshed out, with new features like notification dots and Android Go for emerging markets.

As we wrap up here at Shoreline Amphitheater, the AC editors took some time to sum up their thoughts on this year's show. So join Alex, Flo and Jerry as they machinegun through some of the top I/O 2017 happenings in a little over 15 minutes!

  • Hey Jerry, how was the accessibility situation there this year? I remember you mentioning that it wasn't thought out very well last year.
  • I love how Flo is always excited about everything. It's nice to have some female voices at AC!
  • The grey notification pane is horrendous. As are bright UIs. People who enjoy them must want to go blind. Thank God for OEM skins who unlock the theme engine built into AOSP.
  • Just wanted to chime in and say I like the trio here, it works well. Thanks for the video guys, nice job, looking forward to more.
