This JBL Link Bar is Google's first Android TV and Assistant hybrid

Google Assistant научился поддерживать беседу

Companies interested in collaborating on Android Things implementations directly with Google are being encouraged to get in touch with the firm directly through a contact form available through the banner below, though space is limited and only the most innovative and thought-out use cases are likely to be accepted. Here are a couple of keynotes that we have gathered so far.

Visit the official website for more information on the 2018 Google I/O Conference, which runs May 8-10 from the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California.

The Android operating system powers numerous world's smartphones and drives consumers to Google's cash-minting apps. While Google supports boards like Raspberry Pi, Microsoft promises support for all types of boards. So, we've got an outstanding idea of exactly what the newest OS provides.

This time, Google will be more into gesture-based navigation by conceiving the attention which it received from iPhone X & OnePlus 5T, which neglected the need of persistent navigation bar at the bottom of the screen.

For a start, there's control over the TV via voice, as we've come to expect from Android TV. But that doesn't mean Volvo's decision to lean on Google was an obvious one. Although it's just a rumour so, the actual one might vary.

The features will be available for Volvo's next-generation cars over the next few years.

At the beginning of this year, Google made a decision to change the name from Android Wear to Wear OS, to show that it is compatible with both Android as well as iOS. It also brought some much-needed improvements in the product such as prolonged battery life and a dark mode. Google also points out that the Link Bar is the first in a series of hybrid Assistant/Android TV devices, so we can probably count on seeing more in the near future (or even during I/O this week, but that's just a guess). "If you're not, you say Android is irrelevant outside phones".

Given that Google's I/O developer conference starts tomorrow, it's a bit curious that Google chose to make the 1.0 announcement a day early.

Android Things, Google IoT platform for developers who want to build connected devices, is now out of beta, as the company today announced. But other developers will have the option of leveraging the same OS to create their own products.And if you're looking to create a new Android Things product, Google is offering a limited program to partner with the broader Android Things team for technical guidance and support. So it's no surprise that Google, with a dedicated its research division, has grand plans of its own for AI, and we might see some of its machine learning capabilities in I/O 2018.
