Google's virtual assistant can book appointments

Unsurprisingly, it skinned Android P to resemble its existing Sensus interface, which features four constantly updating rows: from top to bottom, we have Google Maps, media, your phone, and calendar entries. Wear OS by Google is the new name for what was previously known as Android Wear, since the company is leaning more and more towards using its own brand on its various initiatives.

Google Lens, the company's visual search tool, was announced past year at I/O for Google's Pixel devices and later rolled out for iOS and other Android devices, awkwardly through the photos app. A major complaint and concern shared by Android TV users is that the device is often too slow and is too much reliant on the TV's specs and this is sure to change. Users will have to flash their smartphone with the beta build of Android P. Users can head over to Google's Android Beta Program page for specific instructions on how to flash the software version. And it plans to achieve this through the introduction of Android P update for the Android TV. With the Android P Developer Preview later that month, Google introduced a system dark theme and smart battery saving features. Gone are the essential navigation buttons, instead, Android P will have gestures to move around in the UI.

Google Assistant might also soon be talking with ordinary people at businesses for tasks such as restaurant reservations, although the feature is still in development.

Android P would have a dashboard to show information about a user's phone usage.

The feature will be rolled out in the next few weeks as an experiment before being launched more permanently, with its abilities expanded to ordering food from restaurants.

To dismiss apps from the recent apps view just swipe the app preview card upwards off the screen.
