Google to Improve Performance of Android TV with the Latest Updates

Google I/O 2018: Android TV Update to Bring New Setup and Autofill; ADT-2 Launched For Developers

At its developers conference this year, Google unveiled the much-anticipated mobile operating system, Android P, which will power the Pixel devices and other smartphones. Google has just announced the final and stable version of Android Things 1.0, its operating system for IoT devices. This will give you more overall battery life-always a plus. But when you're in an app, it appears, and you can press Back to navigate back to the previous screen. Take a look at the latest features it has in store for its customers. You're so used to checking your phone that sometimes you find yourself just staring at the screen, opening and closing apps, your brain melting out of your nose. In two demonstrations, a realistic-sounding automated voice used pauses and "ums" and "mmm-hmms" to sound more human during interactions with people.

Fenech said it's not hard to imagine nefarious uses of similar chatbots, such as spamming businesses, scamming seniors or making malicious calls using the voices of political or personal enemies.

The infotainment panel in the Range Rover Velar is wider than what you might see in other automobiles, giving Google a chance to show off a widescreen redesign in the Android Auto interface. There is also going to be a Google Assistant button on the remote, so you can press the button and start talking to it, without saying "Hey Google" or "Okay Google". The app will also orient you and verify your position using local landmarks such as buildings and shops viewed through the camera.

"The technology is directed towards completing specific tasks, such as scheduling certain types of appointments", the company wrote in its blog post that further describes the system. The feature is expected this summer. "You can carbon copy that recipe example for a host of situations beyond the kitchen". Incredibly, one of the women on the call was actually an enhanced version of Google's AI Assistant.


The improvements include more natural pauses "that have meaning" and other subtleties to help create a "more natural dialogue" with Assistant. So this is a new form-factor, and that was evident with the demo we got for the LINK BAR here at Google I/O. The company is launching support for digital subscriptions in Actions (Google Assistant's voice apps), as well as a variety of tools to help developers promote their Actions, and engage their users. Clay Bavor, VP of virtual and augmented reality, explained: "instead of having Lens work where you have to take a photo to get an answer, we're using Lens Real-Time, where you hold up your phone and Lens starts looking at the scene". This feature wouldn't seem all the helpful in a pinch were it not for another change coming to Lens: It will work in real-time, so you won't have to snap a picture in order for Lens to interpret whatever you're pointing your camera at. That not only eliminates blue light but also makes the phone less appealing to use. Samsung phones aren't on the list of phones getting the feature starting next week. Huawei and Samsung both have their own camera AI features in the form of AI Master and Bixby Vision, respectively.

By fully integrating Android into a auto, other functions can potentially be controlled via voice command, Google said.

Regardless, if Google releases the AI with the level of accuracy it showed off today, it would mark a significant leap in the complexity of AI-based features available to average smartphone users. A "shush" mode automatically turns on the "Do Not Disturb" mode when you turn your phone face down on a table.
