Google is mimicking Apple's iPhone X with the next version of Android

The feature would be rolled it out to all users this month. The idea is these Actions on Google can get discovered, as well as, be available in more languages, and be more visually creating and creative.

Now known as Android P, the new software will also use AI heavily to help streamline battery use to only the most frequently used apps.

Yes, you heard that right. Additionally, Google Assistant will support multiple commands uttered in a single sentence, and you will be able to converse with the assistant without having to say "OK Google" every time.

When people are still struggling and curiously waiting for the Oreo Update on their smartphone, Google on Tuesday announced in the Google I/O Development Conference that soon Google will launch the Android P Beta Version. In Android P, users will see these slices of contextually relevant information from an app with interactive elements for actions, toggles, sliders, and scrolling content. It'll be available on iOS and Android this summer.

Google Maps is already one of the tech companies most significant achievements over the years.

Within this platform, the company has unveiled a range of new application programming interfaces (APIs) including text recognition, smart reply, barcode scanning and face detection. It could also make phone calls in the background and converse independently with a person on the other line. Also, if it spots a document in your image, it will suggest converting it to PDF for you.

Further impressive AI features to be announced at the conference included a Smart Compose feature that can write emails for you and the ability to colorize black and white photos using advanced object recognition.

The use of Google Assistant follows on from Volvo partnering with Google previous year to create an Android-based infotainment system with the Swedish manufacturer. You can find out the live tweet which is embedded below. The AI assistant deployed pauses and "ums" and "mmm-hmms" to sound more human in conversation with real people. If a switch from TV to XBOX is done using Assistant, the Assistant overlay will be visible on top of whatever active input a user is on.

First, login to the eligible device using your Google account in Google Chrome browser. Other than Google's default apps and services, the Sensus infotainment system will have access to thousands of additional apps via the Google Play Store, which is optimised and adapted for Android-based vehicle infotainment systems.
