Android Auto is getting some slick design changes at Google I/O 2018

Google Lens will be integrated in the cameras of future Android phones

Like every other time, Google might introduce the new version of Android which is the Android P. However, users can also expect that Google might make some other announcement related to the software features that would be available for the users. When you plug the JBL Link Bar into your TV, for example, you can then say "Hey Google" and ask it to play whatever TV show, movie or YouTube content you want to watch or listen to. Google Maps will help drivers navigate from one location to another, while Google Assistant will allow the driver to use his/her voice to control things like the car's air conditioner, music, and messaging. 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).

Google is trying to save its wearable technology platform by rebranding Android Wear as Wear OS. In Google's words, "Android Things is Google's managed OS that enables you to build and maintain Internet of Things devices at scale". It comes with two integrated microphones and can function as a normal smart speaker when the TV isn't in use.

Google said it has worked closely with hardware partners to launch the first wave of the Android Things-powered products. Now called Wear OS, the newly branded OS just picked up a few new Assistant features to make it a more powerful wrist companion. While Google supports boards like Raspberry Pi, Microsoft promises support for all types of boards. Google is going to announce its in-house Android TV dongle which will also support a remote for one-handed navigation experience. Google is teasing "a brand new media experience for Android Auto, both on your phone screen and on your vehicle display, making it easier and faster than ever before to surface content to users" in its I/O app.

Teams who win Champions League are lucky, says Antonio Conte
Liverpool will play Real Madrid in Kiev on May 23 and Klopp will be hoping he can end his five-match losing streak in finals. The Blues have a game in hand over Liverpool, who sit six points ahead in third. "They need to win and we want to".

Assistant on Google Home has improved a lot over the past year, but it's still not as good as it is on our phones.

Google has revealed a revamped version of Android Auto, its in-car companion for smartphones. Four times as many smart TV shipments past year had Samsung's (005930.KS) operating system as Android TV, according to IHS Markit. In fact, Google promises free stability fixes and patches for the next three years, and even after official support recedes, developers will still have the option to push app updates to their devices. This support was expected, especially with the smart displays from JBL, Sony and Lenovo expected to be released in the coming days and weeks.
