Google Lens now allows users to copy text from real world

Many are of the opinion that what Google has done and is still trying to do can simply be considered repugnant from a moral standpoint.

Google further said that the Newsstand tab makes it easy to find and follow the sources you trust, as well as browse and discover new ones. The UI will have a new Actions feature where the OS will give users suggestions around what they can do next with an app, which they might use more often. It'll show you which apps you use and for how long, and it provides other important info as well. You can also control music with your voice.

Legend and the rest of these features should arrive later, but for now, immerse yourself in the insane cool abilities of Google Duplex helping Google Assistant to make its conversation come to life for real in the video above. Google took a big step to achieve that goal when it officially integrated its virtual helper into Android 7.0 update. This new feature will allow the user to make appointments and bookings directly from the Assistant. YouTube locked the feature behind a paywall by making it available only to YouTube Red subscribers, but they seem to be rethinking that move now, as several non-Red subscribers are able to access it. These interactive snippets show content from apps without opening the app itself. The first thing Google is going to address is the aesthetics as the home screen will be different for each model with a vibrant look.

However, the new Google Assistant artificial intelligence is, as presented by Sundar Pichai, the most complex piece of technology that has ever been developed.

Google's freshly revamped Google News app can be downloaded by next week on both Android and iOS run devices.

Augmented reality is also being added to Google Maps. The dashboard will break down per-app usage, notifications you've received, number of times you've unlocked your device. Android P beta is available for select devices from OnePlus, Xiaomi, Oppo, vivo, Sony, Essential and HMD Global's Nokia smartphones. It aims to scare users with information about their addictive behaviour and alter it if needed.

Android P getting a formal introduction at the IO 2018 was not something that was a secret. "I'll make you an appointment and update you soon".
