Google began its I/O 2017 developers conference -- an annual 3-day conference for developers -- in Mountain View, California today. The search engine giant has made some very interesting announcements, not just for Android users but also for iPhone loyalists.
The Google I/O keynote was by Google CEO Sundar Pichai at the Shoreline Amphitheater near Google headquarters in Mountain View where the event is taking place from May 17-May 19. Here are some wacky things announced so far:

Google says, “Starting today, we're bringing the Google Assistant to iPhones. Whether at home or on the go, your Assistant is here to help."
