Google pushes the boundaries of AI to solve real world problems

Google I/O 2018: Android TV Update to Bring New Setup and Autofill; ADT-2 Launched For Developers Google Lens hands-on: Copy-and-paste the real world to your phone
Emmett Howard | 11 May, 2018, 10:31

Here's how to get the beta right now, and what you can expect from it.

Pichai also showcased a revamped Gmail and announced another new feature called "Smart Compose", which will help users write emails using machine learning technology.

For example, Google's updated Android software, which runs most of the world's mobile phones, will notify users how much they are using apps and let them set limits for themselves and family members.

"Using that knowledge, Android adapts to your usage patterns so that it only spends battery power on the apps you'll need", they wrote in the post. That can save you a lot of time if you just want to quickly go back and forth between two apps. But, if you have a slightly older model phone, don't count on it.

Follow these steps to install the latest update on your smartphone, provided it is eligible to receive the update. One of the most exciting things was the inclusion on non-Google devices for the first time. It should be quite eye opening.

Numerous updates have a practical bent, created to ease tasks such as composing e-mails, making lists, navigating city streets and lessening the digital distractions that have increasingly addled people's lives as a result of previous tech industry innovations.

Wind Down: This one is sort of like Night Light, but instead of just making your phone easier to read at night, it grayscales everything.

Another major addition to Android P is a new wellbeing dashboard that aims to help you keep your smartphone addiction in check. You may have seen it pass through the FCC, but with I/O 2018 upon us, it has become clear that this device is called the ADT-2, a developer kit for Android TV developers.

The JBL Link Bar also connects easily with smart home devices and can be instructed to switch on/ off the lights and the air-conditioner. When in app switcher, you will also be able to copy and paste from one app to the other. It would not have the multitasking button that shows all the apps running in the background.

Moreover, to download the update, users will have to enrol in the Android Developer Program first. 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.
