Google posts I/O 2013 keynote video

Google I/O began yesterday and kicking the event off was the over-sized keynote. This years keynote seems to have been a bit different as compared to previous years. We had heard rumblings about that before I/O began, however it seems most were in denial and still hoping to see lots of hardware announcements.

New Nexus 7 outed in Google Hangouts video

This week Google I/O brought tons of exciting new features and news in the world of Android. Sadly, there wasn't new hardware or that Nexus 7 redux we've been talking about as of late. Many rumors and leaks suggest a new Nexus 7 is coming, but Google didn't unveil anything. However, their new Google+ Hangouts video released yesterday might have just given us our first glance.

Samsung Galaxy S 4 Nexus edition eyes-on

For those wanting the top of the line GALAXY S 4 without Samsung's software tweaks, Google and Samsung have delivered. Now that the big first day at Google I/O has ended, many are wondering what new hardware will be available. And Samsung's GALAXY S 4 Nexus Edition is it. With Google's Nexus devices not supporting 4G LTE, and even the latest only being 720p, this is how we'll get the best of both worlds.

What Google didn’t announce at I/O 2013

Google I/O is going on full steam right now, and Google has just finished up the keynote full of announcements. So is there anything that Google didn't announce this morning? Absolutely. There is plenty that was expected that wasn't announced, but there's also plenty that wasn't announced that is probably new we'll be spotting all week long. For now, lets talk about what didn't happen.

Google+ Hangouts app goes live, we go hands-on

Google+ Hangouts were announced earlier this morning during the keynote. At that time Google had said this would be arriving today and true to that statement, the app has since come available in the Google Play Store. The app has arrived as Hangouts and it will replace the Talk app already installed on your device. As we saw earlier, Hangouts is a cross-platform messaging app and allows for text and video chatting.

Google Maps for mobile update brings improved search and ratings system

Google I/O 2013 also included some updates in terms of maps. In this case our focus will be on the mobile side, in which these updates will be coming for Android as well as iOS users. The big line here was how they will be going "beyond direction and navigation." Pretty much, new features will be coming to Google Maps for mobile devices.

Google Search gets faster and will now anticipate your needs

Google Search is an extremely powerful service we all use each and every day. It's safe to say Google knows more about us than we'd like. Today however, Google's calling the new search "the end of search as we know it" as it improves like never before. Google search will now answer, converse, and anticipate. This is the knowledge graph and prediction start-up companies they've been buying all leaking out the seams and arriving for us all. More details below.

Google+ update brings more than 41 new features

We have seen plenty coming out of Google I/O this morning. The announcements have included everything from the Google Edition GALAXY S 4 to Google Play for Education to the "All Access" music service that looks set to take on the likes of Spotify. While we have seen plenty of announcements, it looks like Google has also announced a rather big set of updates for Google+.

Google+ Hangouts go cross-platform with group video

Google has confirmed some of the earlier rumors. These rumors were dealing with the unified messaging service that was first tipped as Babel. Coming later in that rumor cycle, we had heard Babel was going to be launching as Hangouts. Well, Hangouts have been officially unveiled and as part of the announcement, Google played off the bit about how their own services have been "fragmented and confused at times."
