There’s not anything for to begin the most anticipated event of Google. Tomorrow we will know the future of Android, its upcoming new products and at least the announcement of a new device Nexus, this morning we have seen what we expect from Google I/o 2012. All eyes will be placed in 4.1 Android (Jelly Bean).
Each time the sector is more competitive, with seated iOS and Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 to around the corner Google should put all eggs in one basket this week to match or exceed the services already offered or will offer short term competition. Then we will see features that should be presented in 4.1 Android (Jelly Bean), or as very late in Android 5.0 (Key Lime Pie) if finally this version comes out at the end of this year.
Integration with Google Drive
We started with Android integration in the cloud. The last launch of Google Drive for Android most left a bittersweet taste. There was no integration with the operating system, is currently limited to download, upload and share them in a very basic way, and that is something that should already address Google.
Google Drive It should be integrated with Android to have synchronized all our documents in the cloud to be able to access them from our PC, and with the rest of Android devices that we have. For example see from the Gallery of Android to the photos and videos that we have in Google Drive as it already happens with Picasa, and if we make a photo or a video that automatically climb to the cloud so that you sync with other devices with Android.
Backups in the cloud and synchronization
Following Android cloud you need to offer a backup system to avoid losing the application data whenever we delete an application or restore the device with factory settings. Make backup copies of our data we currently have to have root access and use third-party applications.
You also need to provide synchronization data from applications with all of our Android devices a user to for example if we started a round of a game on mobile continue heading where to leave it from the tablet.
Support of additional peripherals and non-touch screens
Android has to be more versatile, have to start giving support for non-touch screens and be compatible officially with additional peripherals, as keyboards, touchpads and mice, as it is with the gamepads. Increasingly people want more bases to convert their mobile on a computer or keyboard to convert your tablet into a laptop, and Google has to offer already official support for third-party applications of adapted to non-touch screens.
The application Google Voice Search It has to be renewed to offer more and better voice commands. The current version of the Google voice search has been already far behind the competition, Siri’s Apple and Microsoft Speech. Many users now want a voice Assistant to perform simple actions with voice.
What else is this left enough behind Android is on its games platform. Missing you already have your own Game Center or Xbox Live to deliver a social platform and Android officer to have in their games, achievements, leaderboards, games online with friends, etc. & #8230;
All these are the news that Android would not have to take to offer not to be back in competition, and we hope to see most of them or all of them in the next version of 4.1 Android (Jelly Bean) It will be presented tomorrow.
