Google Assistant's New Voices Are Now Live

Google Assistant's New Voices Are Now Live

At the event, Google showed what the Assistant can do in Google Maps.

That the many in Google did not erupt in utter panic and disgust at the first suggestion of this.is incredible to me. For users who are craving out to run this latest version of Android on their devices, there's some good news for some of you.

Google unpacked most of the new features in Android P at Google I/O 2018 earlier this week, revealing in the process that it copied yet another iPhone X feature.

Google is also redesigning the Assistant experience on the screen that's with us all the time-our phones.

Android VP of Engineering responded to one of these tweets, noting that the "Clear All" button shall return, responding with, "Coming to a Beta near you soon".

Then came massive waves of water, which crashed through farmland, swept away hundreds of houses and killed at least 32 people. The floods hit as the East African nation was recovering from a severe drought that affected half of the country.

The popular recents menu on Android has seen some key changes with Android P, including a big change that sees it switch from a vertical stack-based look to a horizontal card-based display. Android P beta's expansion outside Google's own hardware. Google is replacing the standard navigation icons with gestures and creating a native support for notch. It is already using a bunch of new and smart AI features. The AI will also deliver suggestions to enhancing the images for the users.

Google Assistant was super impressive at the I/O keynote address. The ball is in Apple's court and it needs to prove that it can still compete with Google and Amazon on this front. So the next time you connect your headphones you may see an App Action to quickly start playing your favourite playlist on Spotify. This will help them to cut back on compulsively staring at their phone at any moment of downtime. The new voices are also just some of the changes that Google is making to Assistant. With these new voice options, users will now be able to choose between four different female voices, and four different male voices. Apart from that, there is the original one too with which users are probably familiar with. "Natural language, understanding, deep learning, text to speech".

Pichai launched an overhaul Google News venue that put AI to work finding trusted sources for stories and balancing perspectives to provide fuller pictures of breaking developments.

Google I/O 2018 was awaited by everyone and the company proved it rightly so. The feature will also use local landmarks and buildings captured by the camera to help guide the trip. Social media fuels that debate from time-to-time, with fake news, spreading extremism and more. Google calls the technology Duplex. While the calls are obviously initiated by you, one could question who holds the responsibility for information shared over them.
