Google will soon require OEMs to roll out 'regular' Android security patches

Google News aims to fix journalism by offering an easy way to pay for

Other smartphone users will, however, have to wait until 2019 to get their hands on the Android P update. For users who are craving out to run this latest version of Android on their devices, there's some good news for some of you.

To register your device for the beta program head over to the Android Beta testing portal.

"Android has those three buttons at the bottom: Home, back and something else", Burke said. Some of the devices mentioned may come as a surprise for some, but that's the way it is for now. The new Android version includes a lot of new features.

The other product that's getting a touch of AI and ML is Google News, which has been completely redesigned from scratch. To go to the home screen, swipe from the bottom. But sometimes you need to pick up the phone and call a business to get something done. The new side-scrolling multi-tasking tray pops up. For example, "I haven't seen you" might be autocompleted to "I haven't seen you in a while and I hope you're doing well". The future is not far off when we see all our devices being connected to the internet.

Google's virtual assistant can now make phone calls on your behalf in a new unsettling feature.

The lack of a "clear all" button makes closing standby apps a bit more time-consuming, and Google is taking note of it.


Earlier this week, Google CEO Sundar Pichai unveiled Duplex, an artificial intelligence voice technology that sounds jaw-droppingly human.

Though it's only a minor change, the idea that the notch - which didn't even exist one year ago - is already making Google rethink the way it designs its operating systems is interesting.

Android has made much progress on solving the issue that its been facing since the OS conception: fragmentation. Basically, an action is a specific task within the app that you commonly perform. (Families have listened to over 130,000 hours of children's stories in the last two months alone.) To help you give your little ones some positive reinforcement when they ask nicely, later this year Google will introduce Pretty Please, so that the Assistant can understand and encourage polite conversation.

Now, the battery will utilize machine learning to acclimatize to how you utilize applications so as to save energy and have what Android vice president of engineering, Dave Burke, describes a more "consistent" battery experience.

Debates quickly started over whether people answering phones should be told when they are speaking to human-sounding software and how the technology might be abused in the form of more convincing "robocalls" by marketers or political campaigns.
