And the audience cheers her exit... Now back to paying attention.
Returning to battery life on L: New feature called Battery Saver Mode. You can start battery saver "if you're about to go on a long hike...or a long protest," he jokes.
Other features glossed over: better multitasking, USB audio support, cast receiver, burst-mode camera, phone rotation lock, path animations, improved AV sync, 64-bit trusted execution environment
Pichai back on stage to talk about Android innovation. "You can see things like custom keyboards, widgets--those things happened in Android four to five years ago," he says, poking fun at Apple, which announced such features to the upcoming iOS8 mobile operating system at its WWDC developer conference.
On security innovation: Google Play automatically scans for malware. Less than half percent of users encounter any malware, he says. Will push security patches via Google Play, so updates get to users within six weeks. Added factory reset protection. Adding Universal Data Control, so users can manage privacy settings.
Now he's moved beyond mobile and tablets. Teases by saying everything will be contextually aware, voice enabled, and mobile-first. "We want to bring the right information to you at the right time," he says. "We want the experience to be seamless--it shouldn't matter what device you were using before."
Android Wear can support square and round form factors. Watch will provide answers to smoking questions and act as key in multiscreen world.
Interestingly enough, this Android Wear interface doesn't have a lot of the material design ideas that Google presented earlier. There are white cards, but none of those tactile paper layers. Looks like they dumbed down the UI for devices with less processing power.
People check Android phones more than 125 times every day, and Wear aims to surface important, brief communication.
Demo of Wear: Check weather forecast, commute time, shipping tracking, receive calls and see who it is at a glance, add reminders or ask questions via voice.
@MarkWilson: I mean, they were showing off analog wallpaper themes...
Do Not Disturb, accessed by swiping down, can silence notifications.
The command "Play some music" turns on music with album art displayed in the background and features controls on the small screen.
"The very best wearable apps respond to the users' context with glanceable cards on the screen and allow users to take direct action in just a few seconds."
Android Wear SDK available today. Write code that runs directly on wearable. Can present fully customizable UI, control sensors, and send data between devices.
If an app downloaded from Google Play has a version for Android Wear, it will automatically download to the smartwatch.
With Eat24, the food delivery app can surface favorite/repeat orders, allowing users to place a takeout or delivery order within seconds.
Now we're seeing a recipe app that sends step-by-step instructions to your watch. Each step gets a screen, and you swipe to get to the next step. I'm a skeptic about smart watches, but I'll admit, this looks so much better than using a tablet in the kitchen.
With integration of ridesharing app Lyft, the smartwatch wearer can say: "OK Google, call me a car." Shows car ETA and traffic. Also allows riders to rate from the watch screen.
LG G Watch will be available to order later today on the Play store.
Honestly though, I don't know why Android Wear often has this silly wallpaper on it, when all of the information comes through on a card--what's essentially a word bubble--that takes up 80% of the screen anyway.
Samsung Gear Live, which will be available for order later today as well.
Moto 360 will be available for order this summer.
Audience response: awwwww....
Now we're going to hear about Android in the car.
Android Auto: Android platform for cars, except it's safe for driving. Puts navigation, communication, music, and other apps front and center. Contextually aware and voice enabled--keep your eyes on the road!
So basically, Google is naming everything Android[whatever it is] now. AndroidWear. AndroidAuto. Etc.
Andy Brenner, product manager at Google, is demoing Android Auto. Apps are running on Android phone, so experience changes with updates or device upgrades. Screen shows destinations, reminders, contacts, music.
All of these AndroidAuto apps look and feel like Android on a wide screen. It's more or less your Android phone in landscape mode.
Google Maps on Android Auto is voice enabled. Product manager Andy Brenner asks the car infotainment system how late the DeYoung Museum is open. He gets an answer, decides to visit, and asks for turn-by-turn directions without having to tap or swipe.
"Wouldn't it be great if building an app for your car was as simple as building for your phone?" Guess what? Google announces the Android Auto SDK. Partners include: Pandora, TuneIn, Stitcher, Spotify, Songza, iHeartRadio, and more.
Can't wait? "The Android Auto SDK will be published soon."
40 new partners added to the Open Automative Alliance, companies that have pledged to bring Android to their vehicles.
Burke back on stage to talk TV, announces Android TV, which extends platform to this form factor.
What happened to GoogleTV? Google is now investing more in the Android name than their own.
Pressing home on Android TV triggers an overlay of entertainment options and recommendations. Below are apps and games, ranked by usage patterns. Burke says he's binge watching Game of Thrones--he's just like us!
