Google Assistant to book your appointments

Android P will stop apps snooping on users

Google also announced the second developer preview would run on phones from other companies like OnePlus and Sony.

Google Lens has formerly been readily available in Photos as well as Google Assistant, but will now be incorporated right into the electronic camera app across a selection of top maker's tools, consisting of LGE, Motorola, Xiaomi, Sony Mobile, HMD/Nokia, Transsion, TCL, OnePlus, BQ, and Asus, along with Google Pixel tools. The usual bargain that app developers make is that users can test out cool new features in advance, and developers get a lot of useful feedback in return - feedback they can use to squash bugs and add some spit and polish for the full, non-beta release. Using the same technology that made Holly's voice possible, WaveNet, Google is bringing 6 brand new voices to Google Assistant.

Google said the updates are part of a broader new digital well-being initiative that's just beginning.

And, based on a press release from Kenwood, Android P will also allow Google to make third-party devices Android Auto-compatible. Customers might make do with them for a while but at the end of the day, they'll prefer a natural sounding voice - especially if you're aiming to become an integral part of their day and their lives. One of the most exciting things was the inclusion on non-Google devices for the first time.

Apps like Gmail will use smart prediction to predict and help you write your emails faster. With adaptive brightness, machine learning will determine how bright you like your screen when in different settings, and will adjust it accordingly. The feature will roll out in the next few weeks in the new Gmail while G Suite users will have to wait a little more.

Google will be testing the digital assistant improvement in the months ahead. Google is all about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and so are the key players including IBM, Microsoft and Amazon.

Among these announcements was a demonstration of the new features with the Google Lens. Has this improved Android for you?

Google also announced "style match", a seemingly pretty limited discovery feature that recommends similar products when you point your camera at clothes or a "home decor item". It also allows you to share your real-time plans about visiting a restaurant with your friends who are on Yelp and Foursquare.

Google at its I/O 2018 annual developers conference this week gave the attendees and people watching around the world a number of reasons to jump with joy.

The tech giant has partnered with hardware manufacturers to help devices with older silicon get access to updates.

Lens will now show you lookalikes.

Google wasn't happy just delivering a great virtual assistant.
