Company CEO Sundar Pichai said that Google has been working on newer and more life-like version of its spoken AI that features natural voice which is closer to how humans speak.

"As the name suggests, we use machine learning to start suggesting phrases for you". It's mainly because of the new scrolling bar, which makes sense visually, but Google's UI cuts down on how much you can actually see on your screen. All you have to do is hit tab to keep auto-completing. Now with the help of artificial intelligence, the software can automatically convert black and white pictures in color. The changes are coming in the next two months.

If you're an avid Google Maps user, as accurate as the app is, it can be a challenge sometimes to follow the directions. That means Samsung and LG and other Google partners might not necessarily make you rely on this - or might simply make it an option in settings. Apple iPhone X also has a notch-ed display and this year the company is rumoured to launch three new iPhone models, all featuring the controversial "notch".

But Pichai was also clear "that we can't just be wide-eyed about what we create".

"We know the path ahead needs to be navigated carefully and deliberately-and we feel a deep sense of responsibility to get this right". "Our core mission is to make information more useful, accessible and beneficial to all of society".

In an unprecedented move, Google has announced the availability of Android P for several non-Google branded smartphones. Called Android P, it's the ninth major version of the Android operating system. It will also let you order from participating restaurants or order an Uber.

"Say you connect your headphones to your device, Android will surface an action to resume your favorite Spotify playlist", Google explains. To use the feature, select a time for your phone to enter "Do Not Disturb" mode; the phone's screen will shift into grayscale.

Once you realize the extent of your addiction, the new features will help you overcome it.

The Android P Developer Preview 2 is compatible with Sony Xperia XZ2, Essential PH-1, Nokia 7 Plus, Oppo R15 Pro, Vivo X21, Vivo X21 UD, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, and the upcoming OnePlus 6 smartphone.

That Android TV dongle that showed up at the FCC last month is real, but it's not for normal consumers. Samsung has been developing its own similar feature called Bixby Vision. For instance, it can tell you about your day if you're wearing headphones instead of making you read your calendar.
