Google and JBL have made a Hybrid Android TV soundbar

  • Android P will finally restrict apps from monitoring your network activity

Launched ahead of Google I/O 2018, the new gadget is created to plug into a TV and bring all of Google's media streaming and voice control technologies in one fell swoop. Most notably, Google accidentally outed a gesture-based navigation system that could debut this week (unless it's being saved for the Pixel 3).

Given that Google's I/O developer conference starts tomorrow, it's a bit curious that Google decided to make the 1.0 announcement a day early.

The Link Bar plugs into a TV set using HDMI and enhances a TV with support for Google assistant and Android TV.

And then there's Google Home. This combination speaker bar, smart speaker, and Android TV hub will turn pretty much any television into a smart streaming powerhouse. There are a lot of ways Google can improve it-better microphones, a new wake word, a lower price-and with new Google Assistant capabilities, an update to the original Google speaker would fit right in. Let us know in the comments! As we saw at I/O past year, Google is working with specific vehicle brands to integrate the best of Android Auto into the native interface for some cars, meaning those cars essentially run on Android, but without needing your phone to work.

Volvo said its next-generation Sensus system would be ready "in a couple years".

Undoubtedly, one of the major announcements at this year's Google I/O will be the updates on Android P. A new name is nice, but we want to see some substance to go along with it.

About a month ago, we saw rumored images of a new 4K Chromecast like Android TV dongle through the FCC (which has been taken down since).

In each category, Google's Android system posted less market share a year ago than manufacturer-customized Android variants, which are less fruitful for Google because they typically are not pre-loaded or compatible with its apps.

A Volvo spokesman said that Google's app store guidelines will dictate security for third-party apps, and that new Volvos separate driving and vehicle functions from infotainment and app systems.

We are also hoping the search goddess to release a second developer preview with these new features included and more to explore with.

For Android users, at least, the Google-Volvo partnership should make life easier. It will be based on Android Oreo ecosystem for the apps with a redesigned home screen.
