There was a lot of cool stuff in Mountain View this week, but what was the coolest?

How about that new Unified Messaging app, huh? Oh right, we still don’t have one for Android.

Alright, saltiness over. Honestly, I’m a fan of the huge improvements to Google Assistant. Google is getting serious with Home, making it integrate more deeply into damn near everything. I’m eager to see what’s going to happen with displaying on the Chromecast and comparing that experience to the Echo Show. Google integration matters a lot to me, but Amazon is still a dominant force in this itty bitty corner of the world right now.

Naturally, the VR things excite me, tool. Daydream’s UI overhaul is going to be amazing, and being able to Cast and share without any hurdles is a big deal. A lot of this is catching up to the Gear VR, but it’s going to be a big deal for those who jumped on Daydream early. It’s also a great reason to be excited about the next Google Pixel, but we’ll save that hype for another time
