As the first day of its annual developer’s conference at the Google I/O 2015 drew to a close, the satisfied audiences were unanimous in their thoughts – Google did not disappoint. This year too was a massive show of product strength with Android M, Android Pay, Android Auto, Android Wear, Google Now, Cardboard, Google Jump and more.

With over two million people watching the event via livestream, the conference kicked off with an inspiring keynote address from Google senior vice president of product Sundar Pichai who explained Google’s progress from a search engine to a technology leader with the words, “We serve over a billion users in each of these products.” From there it went on to become a jaw dropping stream of one amazing demo after another.  Android Auto however only received a passing mention from Pichai and it remains to be seen if anything will come of it on the second day.
