How Google is automating life with new artficial intelligence

The major announcement was Android P. The new Android version will rely on AI and machine learning more than every before. Go into the recent apps view, then press and hold the app icon above the preview card, now hit "split screen" button, and choose the other app you want to have sharing the screen. Meanwhile a new group of "suggested actions" for Google Photos make it easier than ever before to share content. You'll need developers to buildout these actions, but that's happening.

However, Google doesn't mention when exactly it plans to roll this out. Google says this feature will be rolled out in the coming weeks.

It has also introduced a new gesture that automatically switch over to DND mode whenever you place it face down on a surface.

I call it the slider because it also allows users to scroll through the open apps just by swiping (scrolling?) through it. In fact, Google requires would-be users to fill out a lengthy form explaining what they want the ADT-2 for, and what they'll do with it. That's cool. Isn't it?

Android P, due to be released later this year, would have a new dashboard that tells users how often, when and for how long they have been using every app on the phone. It's a pretty simple UI, with different options at the bottom for going home, navigation, music, phone and such. It will now give you a quick overview of your day along with suggestions that will be based on the time, day and your interactions with Google Assistant. Android P has a feature Slices where the user can get the deeper look into his favorite apps. In other words, Google's years-old navigation menu would have worked just fine. With Assistant, users will be able to send text messages or play music by giving voice commands.

Furthermore, the tech giant demonstrated a Google Assistant talking and coping with someone at work who was confused by straightforward questions. Google will start testing this feature this summer.

Think of the ADT-2 as an Android TV device that developers can carry around as they develop apps for the Android TV platform. Users on such phones will have to flash the update on their phones manually.
