Google will soon require OEMs to roll out 'regular' Android security patches

Google CEO Sundar Pichai delivers the keynote address at the Google I  O 2018 Conference at Shoreline Amphitheater

Today Google hosted its annual I/O conference intended for developers. It is Google's biggest event of the year till now.

Google has announced a lot of great updates this week during their I/O 2018. Google is focusing more on the visual side for the Assistant.

"This joint effort deals with OS acceptance by offering devices (presently fueled by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660, Snapdragon 845, and Snapdragon 636) with early authorization to the latest Android P", claims director at Qualcomm for Android Product Management, in Mike Genewich, to the media in an interview.

At Google I/O 2018, the company introduced Android P beta for Google Pixel series smartphones, along with a few more Android devices.

To ensure your phone doesn't keep you up at night, Android P is getting a "wind down" feature.

The Android P 9.0 does come with the standard trio of navigation buttons, but now there's a new option within the settings menu, which lets you try the newly redesigned navigation experience. It can also convert photos to PDFs and automatically add color to black-and-white photos or make part of a color photo black and white. For users who prefer to write or draw, Google has reworked the software to significantly reduce latency.

Google recently also rolled out a new User Interface (UI) for Gmail.

Well, apparently while some friends persisted on knowing the details but parents of this couple did not give away a single thing. This is unedited, unformatted feed from the Press Trust of India wire.

A preview of the new tool will be released on Google Pixelbook soon.

These new voices work only with the English language for now. Apart from that, there is the original one too with which users are probably familiar with. You can also control music with your voice.

GOOGLE DUPLEX: Google's digital assistant will call actual people at businesses to make restaurant reservations and hair appointments and check holiday hours.

Google Assistant is now available on the iPhone.

Google is also revamping the "Do Not Disturb" mode with Android P. To activate it, just turn your phone over on its screen, Samat said, though in an emergency, "starred contacts" will still be able to reach you. This feature is not expected to roll out anytime soon, but it is something that Google is working very hard to develop for both business and consumers. A demonstration by Google on stage showed the display pulling up Jimmy Kimmel Live on YouTube TV.

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. Local news has its own section on this page.

The development is yet another step into a surreal new world, one reminiscent of HBO's "West World", where a character who is asked if she is real, responds, "Well, if you can't tell, it doesn't matter".
