Tech giant Google kicked off its annual developer’s conference in San Francisco. This year, the event turned out to be rather light on the hardware, but heavy on the software.
The company unveiled plans to expand Android, its mobile operating system, for new categories like wearable computers and automobiles.
The announcements came on the heels of the company’s recent acquisition of Nest Labs, the thermostat maker, for $3.2 billion, which gave Google a speedy entry into the nascent market of Internet-connected home appliances. CCTV’s Mark Niu reports from Silicon Valley.
