Google Lens Can Identify Everything In Your Room

  • Google releases May security patch update for Pixel and Nexus devices

Announcing a slew of features to its apps and services, Google stressed on how AI is going to shape up the future not just in terms of technology but also other fields.

The latest feature added in the Google Assistant is ordering movie tickets. On top of those two, Google then announced another six voices at yesterday's I/O keynote.

Cool features you can try out now include the new navigation system (swiping up for recent apps and up again for the app drawer) - depending on your phone, you may need to enable this through the Gestures option in System in Settings. You can still go to the home screen, multitask, kill apps, and switch between apps. And Google will offer new features that help you understand your digital habits and wean you off your 24-7 relationship with your devices and apps so you can power down and spend more time with friends and family.

For starters, Google Assistant uses the voice of "Holly", the current voice code for the company's digital assistant. You see shoes you like or furniture out in the world; Lens will get more information about that item (assuming recognition) but can now also show you lookalikes (see below).

As it pushes the boundaries of artificial intelligence, the voice-activated Google Assistant is becoming more conversational and visual, with the ability for its personal AIde to carry out conversations in ways that would no doubt astound Alan Turing.

All this is to say that Duplex doesn't feel like a necessary technology; it's more of an exercise in what AI-powered systems are capable of - ethical issues notwithstanding. Simply put, it allows the Google Assistant to speak on your behalf, to say, make an appointment at the salon or book a table for your gang at a restaurant - all with a natural, friendly voice.

Likewise, the Back button rotates to "Down" when using a virtual keyboard so you can hide that keyboard, as before. "The initial results have been very promising, and we've seen a significant reduction in background activity in our internal testing".

Apps like Gmail will use smart prediction to predict and help you write your emails faster. You just do it differently than on iPhone 8 and its precursors.

Google Assistant is now available on 500 million devices globally, Scott Huffman, vice president of Google Assistant revealed. This is not a great percentage rate but considering that this is a brand new feature, 60 is better than zero.

You'll handle this task (and most others, really) on what looks like an Android tablet grafted onto the car's center console. Bringing detailed cards on pointing the camera to landmarks is single-handedly the most interactive way of navigating through the city.
