+Russ Buchmann asked for the Requests team to try and photobomb Sundar.

While we weren't able to make that happen, we did spot this at one of the snack spots and thought you'd appreciate it!

+Loo Rong Jie asked us on G+ if and when Chrome's speech synthesis API will be improved like adding more voice types, more natural speech synthesis, male voice for US English, API to create/customize voice.

We were able to track down +Glen Shires on the Chrome team and this is what he said:

The current implementation of the Web Speech API on the Chrome browser includes many different voices in many languages, including several male and female US English voices.

The available list of voices can be enumerated with this command:
speechSynthesis.getVoices()

Additional information is available at:
-A tutorial that describes how to choose different voices and other TTS features is at: https://developers.google.com/web/updates/2014/01/Web-apps-that-talk-Introduction-to-the-Speech-Synthesis-API
-A tutorial for speech-to-text using the Web Speech API is at: http://updates.html5rocks.com/2013/01/Voice-Driven-Web-Apps-Introduction-to-the-Web-Speech-API

Daniel Cook sent us an #io16request on Twitter asking what's new with developing from Chromebooks.

The big news, of course, is the announcement of the Google Play Store coming to Chromebooks. You can read the details of that announcement here:
https://chrome.googleblog.com/2016/05/the-google-play-store-coming-to.html

I failed, though, to track down any new news about coding Android or Chrome apps from ChromeOS. Sorry I don't have more info to share!
