  • Top 10 New Google Features Announced at I/O 2018

Google will also have a new Machine Learning ML Kit for app developers, which will work on both Android and iOS. Whenever it recognizes a photo of one of your Google contacts, it can suggest sharing the photo with that person.

Google Assistant was super impressive at the I/O keynote address.

To use Android Auto, we need to connect our phone to infotainment system but with the new version it will be integrated into the system by the manufacturer itself and phone don't need to be connected.

The unveiling of the natural-sounding robo-assistant by Google wowed some observers, but left others fretting over the ethics of how the human-seeming software might be used. For users who are craving out to run this latest version of Android on their devices, there's some good news for some of you. The rebranded Android Wear is now on Developer Preview 2 and this now includes a bunch of power-related improvements plus Actions on Google or AoG support.

Ever since they were introduced, Actions on Google have been gaining more and more features. "We'll be experimenting with the right approach over the coming months". With Google Assistant integration, you can quickly get your transit updates and traffic details using your voice commands. It's called Google Duplex and it allows the Google Assistant to make calls for you, booking tables, appointments and possibly more.

Beginning this year, LG and Google began collaborating to develop a wide range of features and are working on expanding consumer accessibility in multiple languages.

One of the most promising features that could be seen was the ability of the digital assistant to make calls to real-life people and handle them effortlessly. Now its time that it faces some competition from the similar devices running Google's software.

At the event, Google showed what the Assistant can do in Google Maps. A demonstration by Google on stage showed the display pulling up Jimmy Kimmel Live on YouTube TV.

The other product that's getting a touch of AI and ML is Google News, which has been completely redesigned from scratch.

Google has revamped its news service as it gears up to fight the menace of fake news.

For a deeper insight into a story, the "Full Coverage" feature provides a complete picture of how that story is reported from a variety of sources.

Social media fuels that debate from time to time, spreading fake news, extremism and more. They are essentially shortcuts meant to let you do more with fewer taps. This is of course when the feature actually rolls out to users. Earlier version of Android have also had the "clear all" button, which can be used to close all apps that are now being held in standby.
