As expected, the Google IO news haven’t stopped coming. It will probably be like this for a while, but we do have great stories for you. Let’s go over them!
Missed the Google IO keynote when it was streamed live, this morning? Don’t you worry. We are certain most of you have already read all about the latest Google announcements, but if you want to feel the excitement of the announcement, you can watch the whole event via YouTube.
Those who prefer a quicker overview can also check out our post on Google IO. You can find everything there is to learn there.
Opinion: It’s a bit hard to stay focused during 3 hours of pure Google IO video. Seeing the announcements may be fun, but sometimes Google gets into their developer-focused talk. Literally sounds like another language at times.
Want to get yourself a brand new Android Wear device? The LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live have become available today, with prices that don’t seem too bad at all. The Samsung Gear Live is surprisingly the cheapest, costing only $199. You can also purchase the iconic LG G Watch for $229, which is not bad either.
The Moto 360 will be released later this summer. We know many of you love the looks of that device, so you might want to wait a bit more. Those interested in buying one of the available smartwatches can now head straight to the Play Store and purchase one.
Opinion: I never thought Samsung would release the most affordable Android Wear device around. Considering its popularity, the Korean manufacturer may very well become the most popular Android Wear smartwatch around.
Android Wear is nothing without awesome apps, and some very interesting ones are showing up. Even PayPal, the biggest online banking institution, has signed up to develop for Android Wear!
PayPal’s Android Wear app allows users to make payments, get notifications and even redeem offers. The basic PayPal experience offers the most commonly used actions in the app… all from the comfort of your wrist.
Opinion: Wireless payments are stepping into a new universe. Soon we will no longer need to even pull out our phones to make a payment! I certainly can’t wait to test this.
Google announced native Office editing from Google Docs, a feature that was only available from Quick Office before. This was great news, but some of you may be more excited about the new Google Slides app, which is finally available from the Google Play Store.
Opinion: Google Slides sure took its sweet time, but at least now we can enjoy the perfect Google Docs trio.
