Volvo teams up with Google for Google Assistant, Play Store and Maps

Moreover, this time Google has specially planned to address few vulnerable issues which caused a lot of issues in the previous versions of Android. Ahead of the I/O conference that kicks off tomorrow, Google is giving a preview of an upcoming Google Assistant-enabled smart speaker, and it's not meant to go on your nightstand-it's meant to fit under your TV. Then, the Link Bar will act much like a Google Home smart speaker, it appears. Google will still have some new information to reveal about Android Auto later this week, but here are some of the more important changes to the platform. So you won't even need Android Auto to use Google apps.

There's also support for music playback, including if the TV itself is turned off. Users will also find out whether the Android P release date will follow the trend and be set in August. Here are a couple of keynotes that we have gathered so far.

Health technology startup Byteflies, an Android Things tester, said it viewed the system's optional integration with Google's cloud computing service and the large Android developer community as big advantages. Four times as many smart TV shipments past year had Samsung's (005930.KS) operating system as Android TV, according to IHS Markit.

There will be announcements about the future of Android and Google's AI efforts. We can also expect more investments and features being added to the Assistant. Let us know your thoughts below. We have seen that till now, Google had nothing interesting to offer in this segment. The automobile company, known for its focus on safety, announced today that the next generation of its Android powered Sensus infotainment system will include Google Assistant, Google Maps, and the Google Play Store.

As for the company's famed virtual assistant, Google has been on the rush as late getting it work with more smart home appliances and other Internet of Things (IoT) products; it's now compatible with over 5,000 of them, and covers most name brands in the United States.

Rumors about Google developing a cheaper Pixel phone have swirled ever since the first Made-by-Google phone landed, but this year it may actually come true. It will be based on Android Oreo ecosystem for the apps with a redesigned home screen.
