Rundown Of Google's I/O 2018 Keynote

Rundown Of Google's I/O 2018 Keynote

While Google Assistant will soon make calls on behalf of users in the U.S., its capabilities will be limited to just three tasks: booking a restaurant, a hair salon appointment and checking closing/holiday hours for a business.

Google Assistant is one of the best virtual helpers on the market. What was remarkable and also eery, was that Google Assistant was able to pass itself off as human to the caller as it carried out the task. We'll see what that looks like when the Duplex technology rolls out in testing as a part of Google Assistant this summer.

Google stated that these features would be rolling out in the next few months and with the smart speaker battle just heating up in India, it remains to be seen which assistant emerges victorious. For outlets with subscriptions, Google will allow you to subscribe directly through your Google account, without needing new passwords or credit-card information.

LG Electronics is introducing Google Assistant on its 2018 AI TV line-up, which will deliver cutting-edge AI features operated directly through the TV's remote control with no additional hardware required. From there, Google will walk you through the process.

Chris Messina, a product designer who previously worked for Google, tweeted: "Google Duplex is the most incredible, terrifying thing out of #IO18 so far". The Android P Public Beta program now offers a download of Android P to at least ten smartphones including Google Pixel, Google Pixel 2, Sony Xperia XZ2, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, Nokia 7 Plus, OnePlus 6, Oppo R15 Pro, Vivo X21UD and X21, and Essential PH-1.

Original Iron Man Suit Stolen From Storage
With the new MCU movie, Avengers: Infinity Wars , the MCU has gained yet another mega block buster under its belt. The warehouse said to be in Pacoima, located north of downtown Los Angeles, had the expensive suit in storage.

Google has been going all out in ensuring that Google Assistant becomes your go-to assistant of choice. The latest announcements coming out of I/O will help developers achieve more with Actions on Google.

WELL-BEING: Android P also includes features to combat overuse.

Earlier this year Google launched six ready-made Routines to help you get multiple things done with a single command.

For as long as we can remember Android has had three familiar buttons sitting below the screen: Back, Home, and a Multitasking button that has various names but in essence allows you to access open apps on your phone or tablet.

Tell the Google Assistant to book a table for four at 6:00 pm, it tends to the phone call in a human-sounding voice complete with "ums" and "likes", and sends you a message with the details. Newscasts make it easy to dive right into perspectives to learn more about a story-plus, it's easy to read on the phone. Google News uses the company's AI and Machine Learning tools to serve credible and relevant news to users.
