While it is generally agreed that the Internet of Things could improve the way we interact with devices, its integration into everyday life is somewhat slow. This process may soon accelerate with the introduction of Brillo, Google's new OS for the IoT ecosystem. Here are 5 ways this new solution could change the device landscape.

Announced at Google I/O on 28 April, Brillo and Weave will become the basis for the new Internet of Things platform. Brillo is basically a lightweight, stripped-down version of Android, while Weave provides a protocol for devices to communicate. Once equipped with Brillo, devices will allow their users to interact with them using compatible smartphones, tablets, etc.

Available in the third quarter of the year, Brillo will compete with the other IoT platforms including Apple HomeKit, and SmartThings.

Here are 5 ways Brillo can change the device landscape.
