The biggest presentation of Google in 2018 was held. It was devoted to the opening of the conference for developers of Google I / O 2018, which will last until May 10. Traditionally, on the first day of the conference, the managers of the company come on stage and talk about new products. This year Google did not change the traditions. Let’s talk about all the new items that you can soon try.
The presentation began with merry jokes of Google CEO Sundar Pichai. He gladly told that his company redrawn emoji, which had previously been drawn incorrectly. Such a beginning raised all the mood. Now in the hamburger cheese will be in the right place, and not quite a full mug of beer will be filled to the brim.
Sundar Pichai talked about how important nowadays is artificial intelligence. Artificial Intelligence from Google has learned to finish for you messages in Gmail. This function was called Smart Compose. In Google Photos, artificial intelligence will offer you various actions. For example, if you are viewing photos of your friends, the application will invite you to share these photos with your friends.
As already mentioned, artificial intelligence in the application for storing photos will get new opportunities. And also users of Google Photos will be able to convert a photo of a document into a PDF file with one tap. In addition, various tools for editing document photos will be available. All new features of Google Photos will be available within a couple of months.
Google’s voice assistant will receive a new more natural voice. The assistant will be released on more than 5000 new devices, and most importantly, will support 30 languages in 80 countries. Google users in Russia are still waiting for the support of the Russian language.
By the way, you do not have to constantly say “OK, Google”. It will be enough to say this phrase once in the beginning of the conversation with the assistant. Then you can do without it. And in July we will be able to enjoy Google Assistant on smart displays from third-party manufacturers. In addition, this summer Assistant will receive a new visual component for iOS and Android, and also appear in Google Maps.
This product for readers and publishers, too, received the power of artificial intelligence. For the user, with the help of machine learning, the most relevant collection of interesting news will be compiled. Google app News will be released in 157 countries for iOS and Android. The next week they will be able to enjoy all comers.
Now it’s time to talk about the long-awaited announcement. In this topic, too, there was no mention of artificial intelligence. It is designed to make the use of the smartphone more comfortable and efficient. For example, machine learning will monitor which applications you use to turn off unnecessary applications in a timely manner and save energy. This function is called Adaptive Battery.
In fact, Android P will keep track of everything you do, and everything that happens around. The operating system itself will offer a comfortable level of screen brightness and functions that can come in handy right now. In order for third-party application developers to stay on the sidelines, Google introduced MLKit. Benefit users will also be able to closely monitor their actions thanks to a menu that shows the activity of applications.
The multitasking menu has changed. Now it’s more like what Apple did in the iPhone X. The emphasis is on gestures.
And now about really useful: if you look at the phone and turn it over, the image will also turn over, but on the screen there will be a button, clicking on which you can cancel the screen rotation. In the “Do Not Disturb” mode, pop-up notifications appear on the screen, and the smartphone with Android P will prepare you for sleep, switching the screen to black and white mode.
Android P will be available for Essential owners Phone, Google Pixel 2, Google Pixel 2 XL, Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Nokia 7 plus, OPPO R15 Pro, Sony Xperia XZ2, Vivo X21UD, Vivo X21, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S.
Finally, an interesting feature was shown, which will be available in Google Maps. With this camera function, we will be able to learn more about the world around us. Google Lens will show information about the items that you can see, you can copy the text from the book into your smartphone, and all this will be available in a couple of weeks.
