Our wish list for Google I/O 2018

Tech Industry
These are the top five things we want to see at Google I/O. Over the years, Google has introduced lots of new things at its annual I/O event. There's been Google Home, new versions of Android, and the unforgettable Project Brillo. This year is the tenth Google I/O, so here's our wishlist for what we want to see. At number five is a music strategy. Google has Google Play Music, along with YouTube music. Now there's a rumor that a new YouTube service called Remix is coming, and it will swallow up Google Play Music. I use Google Play Music, and I'm all for this idea. Whatever you do, Google, do not have two separate services that are essentially the same. Coming in at number four are some new Google Home features. Google did add a ton more control to Google Home recently. It now controls more than five thousand smart devices. But Home is still trailing Amazon's insane amount of skills. Maybe Google can come up with better Chromecast integration. For example, you can ask Home to show you something from Netflix, but you can't tell it to play a particular season or episode with your voice. Also Amazon has a pretty simple online tool that let's anyone create a custom Alexa skill easily. Maybe Google can copy that strategy [UNKNOWN]. And number three is figuring out TV. Google has been trying to figure out a television plan for years. Remember Google TV? It was discontinued within four years of its introduction. Then there was that oddball Nexus Q, then we got Android TV, which was on the Nexus Player. The player was introduced and discontinued within two years. In parallel is the Chromecast, which is pretty decent as long as you have a Phone to send it content. Maybe this is the year Google put Android into the Chrome Cast. Number two, Google Fuchsia. The mysterious operating system could be the future of both Chromo S and Android. Now, Android apps can run on Chromo S, but that's still kind of messy. Android can sorta be a desktop interface. Take a look at a Samsung device with a desk dock. Reports say Fuchsia can run on phones and Chromebooks, so maybe it is the future of Google devices. Whether it merges Chrome and Android, or just something else entirely, it would be great to find out what the plan is for Fuchsia. Hey Google, can you clear this up? And the number one thing on our wish list for our Google I/O 2018 is a lot more messaging apps. We've only got Duo and Hangouts and Google Voice and Messenger with Allo on live support. Google This cannot stand. I'm just kidding. Here's what we'd really love to see. Some amazing Android news. If you've been following the news on Android P you may be underwhelmed. Android Oreo brought us picture and picture video. Smarter text selection. Notification dots on app icons, and the ability. Just news notifications. Android P has notch supports. Rounded corners for notifications, it may be named Popsicle? Yay? Here's hoping Google is sitting on some awesome features for the next version of Android and we'll see them at I/O. [SOUND] Big thanks to Paul, Greg, Michael, Jessie, Stephen, Risto and everyone else who chipped in with their ideas on Twitter. We'll have all kinds of coverage on Google IO at CNET, so make sure you check that out. I'm Iyaz Akhtar and I'll se you online. [MUSIC]
