Time for Android in your watch (and car, and TV)

Tech Industry
[MUSIC] It's finally time, for some Android wear watches. I'm Bridget Carey, and this your CNet update. [MUSIC] The world of Android has no expanded into smart watches, and also cars and televisions. At the annual Google IO developer's conference, the company showed off new software for upcoming Google products. The presentation lasted nearly three hours. But I'll sum up the highlights for you in under three minutes. Google gave a demo of how smart watches work with the Android Wear operating system. The idea is that you would have notifications that you can quickly glance at. There will be cards that you flip through, to see text messages or other alerts. Now, if you get a phone call, you can answer or hang up from the watch, or swipe up. To send a quick text saying that you're busy. It understands voice commands so, you can set a reminder by talking to your wrist **** Tracy style. The Android apps on your phone will be simplified, for the small watch screen. For example, Allthecooks app shows a recipe step on your wrist, but not all apps for a watch will make your life better. Pinterest has this pointless push alert, that shows you when you're near a restaurant that your friends pinned to their wall. Yeah, too many notifications could be a drag on the watch's battery life. The first two smart watches to run Android Wear will be the LG G watch, and a Samsung model called the Gear Live. Those can be preordered now. And was arguably the best looking one. It's the round moto 360. That isn't on sale until later this summer. Android will become part of your cars dashboard. Some cars coming out this year will support Android Auto. So, when you plug an Android phone into your car. The car's touchscreen will show a Google interface for maps, music, and other apps. And all this can be controlled with voice commands. Android also wants control over the living room. Android TV, is an entertainment hub for your television that's controlled with a phone or a tablet, or your smart watch if you have one. You can look up shows, open apps. And even play Android games. Like everything else you can also control this with voice commands. Google TV flopped but maybe Android TV will be different. It comes out this fall but you'll need a special TV or a set top box to use Android TV. We got a quick peak at the new design coming to the next version of Android. It's called Android L. No they didn't give it a cute sweet treat code name. Not lollipop or licorice, just L. Google had a lot of things to show off but we didn't hear anything about Glass. So, for now that's your Tech News update and you can get more details on all these stories at CNet.com. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey. [MUSIC]
