It’s been a few years since Google has not impressed me at I/O, but 2016 has broken that streak. I’m interested in Google Assistant, and I’m pretty sure a Google Home will be mine as soon as it’s available, but they didn’t do much else to get me riled up. I hope to see more good stuff coming from the company this year, and maybe the products they showed off this week will actually be great, but I didn’t see it at I/O.
Google Assistant was the only product that made me envious of my Android-using friends. But the feature wouldn’t make a large enough impact to warrant switching from iOS.
