All the highlights from Day 1 of Google I/O


…and so it is upon us. Google’s largest annual conference – the Google I/O. While we bring you here the comprehensive coverage, all in 1 stop, here’s our take on some of the outputs from this developers’meet:
3 most important decisions:
Google Photos—a new, standalone product that gives you a home for all your photos & videos, 
Android M – new OS to follow Lollipop
Google+ to don new avtar
Google Photos: According to an official Google blog post, will help users organize & “bring their precious moments to life”. Google Photos gives users a single, private place to keep a lifetime of memories, & access them from any device. They’re automatically backed up & synced, so users “can have peace of mind” that their photos are safe, available across all devices.
What’s more, with Google Photos, users can now backup & store unlimited, high-quality photos & videos. For free. 
Google+: Google top honcho Bradley Horowitz said in a special briefing with reporters during Google’s annual developer conference on Thursday that this near-flop social media platform from Google would be getting a new form.
“Google+ will be changing,” he announced during an event at Google I/O.
Android M: Google unveiled that Android M (some claim M stands for Milkshake) will succeed Android Lollipop later this year. Google said Android M, which was debuting as a pre-release version today, wil have a host of new features & performance enhancements. Yet, simultaneously, Google’s Sundar Pichai said the company had decided to “go back to the basics” & improve quality of the platform.
Where Android 5.0 Lollipop introduced a new design & interface, M appeared to aim for improving the stability & usability of the software.
