It’s day 2 of the Google IO 2015 conference and that means the event has officially come to a close. The most notable highlights from this year’s events are easily Android M, Android Pay, and both Project Soli and Project Jacquard from Google’s ATAP division, as well as Google Photos and the to be expected Android Wear devices in the future. Today we saw a lot more about Android M features thanks to the developer preview as well as the sessions for ATAP’s introduction to the wearables scene. We learned Levi’s will be the first official partner for Project Jacquard, which could end up bringing consumers a whole new world of wearables with connected clothing that can assist users in controlling certain functions on their devices.
