Google I/O-Google Assistant with more smart features

Google put spotlight on its Artificial Intelligence smarts announcing its new features.

Latest Update includes in Google Assistant:

  • Composing Mails
  • Making Lists
  • Navigating City Streets
  • Lessening the Digital Distractions.

New feature in Andriod phone is SLUSH Mode that automatically  puts a phone in “do not disturb” mode if you flip it face down on a table. And a Wind Down Mode will fade the screen to grey at a designated time to help you disconnect before bed.

The company’s digital concierge, known only as the GOOGLE ASSISTANT, is getting new voices – including one based on that of musician John Legend – later this year. It will also encourage kids to be polite by thanking them when they say please.

The assistant may also soon be talking with ordinary people at businesses for tasks such as restaurant reservations, although the feature is still in development.

Google said it will roll out the technology, called DUPLEX, as an experiment in coming weeks. “We really want to work hard to get this right,” said Google CEO Sundar Pichai, who kicked off the conference, known as Google I/O.

Gmail is getting an automatic complete feature that uses machine learning to offer suggestions for finishing half-completed sentences.

The Google Photos app aims to get better about suggesting who you might want to share photos with. Whenever it recognises a photo of one of your Google contacts, it can suggest sharing the photo with that person. It will also convert photos to PDFs and automatically add colour to black-and-white photos or make part of a colour photo black and white.

Google’s latest version of its Android phone software, for now known as Android P, will offer other smart features. It will teach the battery to adapt to how you use apps in order to conserve energy. Phones using Android P will also learn how to set your screen brightness by studying your manual adjustments, a change from automatic adjustments based on ambient light levels.
