JBL's next soundbar doubles as an Android TV box

Google Lens features Google io 2018

The features are finally inbound ahead of this week's Google I/O conference. Android TV had "tremendous traction over the last year" from Asian cable and satellite operators seeking it for set-top boxes, said Google product management director Shalini Govil-Pai. Most notably, Google accidentally outed a gesture-based navigation system that could debut this week (unless it's being saved for the Pixel 3).

"We now support group messaging and RCS". With these new media search enhancements that Google has announced, media applications will be able to integrate their results directly into Android Auto. It's a Google Home. The question on everybody's mind is what Google is planning for the smart speaker to better challenge the Amazon Echo. Let us know in the comments!

The Android operating system powers numerous world's smartphones and drives consumers to Google's cash-minting apps. Four times as many smart TV shipments previous year had Samsung's operating system as Android TV, according to IHS Markit. So it's no surprise that Google, with a dedicated its research division, has grand plans of its own for AI, and we might see some of its machine learning capabilities in I/O 2018.

Google is still new in IoT sector and will take a while before it can understand the market demands and change products accordingly. Gaming streaming courtesy of Chromecast is one possibility.

Lastly, there's the arrival of some new visual templates for Android Auto, giving the UI a refreshed look.

This will give users access to thousands of additional apps optimized and adapted for the vehicle's infotainment system via the Google Play Store.

Replica Panmunjom village draws tourists after Korea summit
North Korea has warned the United States not to misread its overtures of peace as a sign of weakness, as U.S. Trump later said the issue is "not on the table" in his upcoming talks with the North Korean leader.

The 2018 Google I/O developer conference begins tomorrow, May 8 from Mountain View, California. The companies had first announced the partnership in 2017, when Volvo had announced that its new-generation infotainment system, Sensus, will be based on Android. The productivity sections on most app stores are crammed with tools to help you organise your life.

Google is expected to unveil the next version of the Android OS.

Till now, Google hasn't done anything impressive that makes its Chrome OS come into the spotlight. Wear OS just gained smart replies and actions support, but Assistant still isn't as responsive or accurate on our wrists as it is everywhere else. Google announced on Monday the big update, confirming the official release for consumer devices. If Assistant is going to be a true assistant, it needs to be the same everywhere.

Microsoft's platform is also available on devices with much smaller footprints.

Google's family of home devices already includes both a small speaker and a high-fidelity one to complement the original, but none of them have a screen.

The company is also putting in efforts to utilize artificial intelligence in other Alphabet business too like the Waymo self-driving vehicle so we should expect to hear more about AI-based products.
