Whether you missed some or all of today's Google I/O 2016 Keynote, or just want to replay your favorite part, we have the entire two hours embedded right here for your viewing pleasure. Google CEO Sundar Pichai rattles off some statistics. You will hear how 50% of Google's search queries now come from a mobile device, and how 20% of those mobile queries are asked verbally. And you'll discover that Google Translate converts 143 billion words a day to a new language.
Watching the video, you'll see the introduction of Google Assistant. This will be the replacement for Google Now. Then, Director of Engineering Eric Kay discusses smart messaging app Allo. A lot of what was talked about in the Keynote was Google's ability to figure out the context of your queries. This allows the use of a conversational tone when 'talking' to Google.
Of course, the new Daydream VR platform was an important and interesting part of the Keynote. This is obviously an exciting concept for Google and Android. You are not going to want to miss this discussion about the future of VR and Google. And the Keynote also will give you information about Android Wear 2.0.
