Google unveils AI phone feature

We're still digging through all the announcements from Google I/O 2018 Day 1.

Google has unveiled a range of new products focused on artificial intelligence, which the technology giant hopes will make its services easier to use.

Google's latest version of its Android phone software, for now known as Android P, will offer other smart features.

Google aims to make its assistant so useful that people can't live without it — or the search results that drive its advertising business.

An update to Google News was also confirmed, with a re-designed feed and wider range of sources being included within the app. Whether it was the beginning of the conversation or while repeating or while giving multiple commands, saying each time "Hey Google" was a tiresome task, indeed!

He also found out that the so-called scientists were also a part of the plan and were working with the fraudsters for Rs 20,000. The police told the media that they covered the copper plate with a liquid magnet in order to fool the businessman.

It's important to point out these conversations were cherry-picked from the many tests that Google has conducted.

While Google Pixel users will receive the features first, the rest of us will get them later this fall. A new Dashboard shows you how the user is spending time on the device, including time spent in apps, how many times the phone is unlocked and how many notifications received. Android P on Android TV will support external cameras.

To encourage children to maintain manners when using Google Assistant, the AI will also now compliment those who say "please" when making a request.

The Google Assistant will soon be able to make phone calls on your behalf to businesses to reserve a table at a restaurant or schedule an appointment at a hair salon.

The company said it will roll out the technology, called Google Duplex, as an experiment in coming weeks.

In the past 5 months, Gmail has undergone more changes than it has in its 14 years in existence.

OK, Google just announced the new features to come in Android P and there's quite a bit to be excited about!

Google also announced an optional feature that will reward polite kids with replies, such as "Thanks for saying please", "What a nice way to ask me", and "You're very polite".

The bottom line: Chromebooks are opening up to coders.

You can also use it for everything you would use the Assistant for, such as setting timers, answering questions, and even placing grocery orders.
