Google’s 2019 I/O conference is underway in Mountain View, California, with 7000 software developers registered to attend. The company is laying out its plans for software updates for the next 12 months, and revealed a new, lower priced, Android phone, and an in-home voice assistant with a larger screen and camera.

As well as attracting new users, the new hardware and software could allow the internet giant to collect even more user data, but Google says it’ll provide new ways to delete it.
