New Google features tap digital smarts

Top 10 New Google Features Announced at I/O 2018

The technology makes use of a natural speech pattern that consists of affirmations and hesitations such as "erm", making it almost impossible to differentiate from an actual human call.

"Many of us feel tethered to our phones and worry about what we'll miss if we're not connected". For users who prefer to write or draw, Google has reworked the software to significantly reduce latency.

Android: Earlier this year, Google offered app developers (and adventurous fans) an early look at Android P. "We'll be experimenting with the right approach over the coming months".

All of these features will be available in the final version of the Android P which will release to Pixel phones most likely by Fall 2018.

Also, the battery settings have a new animation as well as options to control what particular apps use; how much battery and will be killed, if found to use a significant amount of juice in the background.

The 2018 edition of Google I/O, the search giant's annual developer conference, shifted the limelight to the big new area of focus from the company: Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML).

Smith also lists prototype ideas for a diverse set of use-cases based on Android Things: Byteflies, a docking station that securely transmits wearable health data to the cloud; and Mirego, a network of large photo displays driven by public photo booths in downtown Montreal. After the presentation, the company introduced us to the six new Assistant's voices. And it will reward kids who say "please", similar to a feature Amazon is bringing to its Alexa voice assistant. From there on, Google will walk users through the process and they will be testing out Android P in no time.

The unveiling of the natural-sounding robo-assistant by Google wowed some observers, but left others fretting over the ethics of how the human-seeming software might be used. This feature is not expected to roll out anytime soon, but it is something that Google is working very hard to develop for both business and consumers. The search bar in Google will also support diversified links to apps.

Other areas where Google is using AI to improve its services include Google News. The dev preview also adds Android Emulator images.

Then there was the announcement around Gmail which will now have a "Smart Compose" feature, again powered by AI, ready to complete your sentence before you even type them in, and understanding the context of your email. Users will be able to follow arrows - or possibly a cartoon-like creature - that appear on a camera view showing the actual street in front of them.
