Volvo to Offer Android Infotainment System on New Models

Google Contacts 2.0 Contacts Page

One with a Google-designed interface, which would be similar to a "Pure Google" Pixel phone, and one that has been skinned with a custom interface from Fiat-Chrysler, which is similar to what Android smartphone partners like Samsung and LG do. The good news, however is that the company has confirmed the device. We'll may hear about advances in image-recognition technology, voice recognition, and comprehension.

When it comes to Google Assistant, some people might not be happy about the new feature hitting iOS first. It may be announced as soon as this week at Google's I/O developer conference.

An update to the Google Home app (v2.3) has provided a bunch of hints at upcoming features for Home. Or is it more like Amazon's Alexa, which can power third-party devices, too? That's according to an Android Police, which claims that Google Assistant will arrive in the form of a stand-alone app for iOS, Apple's mobile operating system.

The update for Allo 11 has not yet been pushed out for the general public, but you can already install it through an APK download that is already signed by Google. Details are scarce on this one.

Google Allo has a new feature, and it is taking a selfie and making it a sticker that can be customized.

Arsenal go fifth, hunt Top Four
Andy Murray is backing Arsenal to keep their top-four hopes alive with a 2-0 win at Stoke City on Saturday night. I am always harsh with the one that doesn't play. "Every game we try to give ourselves that chance", he said.

The second day will start off with "Building apps for Google Assistant" for me - I can't wait to see how they make the distinction between the various versions of Google Assistant we now have.

Today Google's only spot in the automotive market is Android Auto, which is not an operating system. There are also a lot of sessions not announced yet but will be directly after the keynote - don't want to spoil the keynote do we?

Last year's I/O saw the introduction of Google's Daydream virtual reality platform. The current Daydream VR headsets are a completely occluded experience (you can't see the outside world at all), while AR experiences depend on melding digital imagery with your physical surrroundings.

The popular OS from Google will control all non-driving parameters of the vehicle. In the "What's new in Accessibility" we will also be hearing about the new bits and pieces being incorporated into it in the next version of Android. The next frontier for Google's voice-powered assistant looks like it's going to be your vehicle.

Assistant and Siri are arguably neck-and-neck in terms of functionality, but many have compared the two in the past, with varying results. The Cupertino, California-based company is reportedly prepping a smart home speaker ahead of a June launch at its Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC). The probable reason behind those restrictions that Google doesn't want to state is that they don't want your auto to be hackable. But what can we expect this time? It could very well launch under a totally different skin, for all we know. But what about a smartphone platform powering the vehicle itself? The software now runs on 300 vehicle models.
