Has I2S been removed from Android Things? I'm quite sure I have seen it in the past. Or if there is (still) support for it: Where can the doc be found? It's not on the "Interact with peripherals" section.
All supported modules list I2S (apart from the Pi). So how to actually use that?

This is a big problem, that +Steve Hunter outlines here.

Why isn't the +Google Assistant supporting the <lang> element with its SSML support for Actions on Google? There are ton of usecases. Games, fun, learning, correct pronunciation of certain words (like band names) and so on.

Another thing that comes to mind reading this, is that I would not be able to use his action to learn Mandarin with my devices set to German (those are family devices, so they have to be set to German).

I also cannot use +Headspace's Assistant app to help me meditate because it's also only available in English. Heck, let me decide if I want to see actions by another language as well. I am fine with Headspace being English only.
Hi, I've been learning Chinese for 2 years, and am looking to build an app that can help other students starting out ... so the locale will be EN, but I need the app to speak and understand in Chinese (Mandarin, 'Simplified' Chinese), is this even possible, I could not find anything in the documentation.

IoN, I got my first app 'Australian Citizenship Quiz' approved (being rolled out), based on a real user need from my Maltese mother-in-law; I've let the Australian Department of Home Affairs gov dept know, and hope it helps other (tech challenged!) Australian citizens get ready for their citizenship test :)

You can build the Google Assistant into your own hardware prototypes, like a voice-enabled appliance or custom-built robot. Today, we’re introducing additions to the developer preview of the Google Assistant SDK, including support for 8 languages, location, and Device Actions to voice-activate your hardware.

To get started, read our blog post at https://goo.gl/NYnWcT and visit the Google Assistant SDK website http://developers.google.com/assistant/sdk to download the SDK and start building.

We just released Android Things Developer Preview 6.1, including LoWPAN support! There are also some fixes for issues identified in DP6.

Check out the blog post here for more information: https://goo.gl/zpdyUD

The Low-power Wireless Personal Area Networks (LoWPAN) API enables Android Things apps to manage and configure Thread mesh networks. With this API, developers can integrate additional radios into their device to communicate directly with other peer devices on a Thread network, even ultra-low power battery operated nodes that may not have WiFi or Bluetooth connectivity.

The release notes have more information about DP6.1:

That's an interesting chart of the State of Javascript survey (http://stateofjs.com/2017/mobile/results). Even JS devs seem to prefer native over cross-plattform.

Note, though, that stuff like Flutter and Doppl is not covered here.

Very interesting is also the "Would not use it again" range. React Native and Electron (I didn't know that this is a thing on mobile as well) are the clear winners here. Native also looks good. Ionic, let alone Cordova, fail miserably.
