Google's Plan To Make Tech Less Addictive

Google's Plan To Make Tech Less Addictive

What more do you expect from the Google I/O 2018 conference?

The Google I/O 2018 conference has finally started with some big announcements from the tech giant.

Yesterday at Google I/O, Google announced a new set of features for Android P that are supposed to help you be less addicted to your smartphone.

Apart from this, it will also bring smart text selection feature allowing the users to select text from anywhere and user can copy, cut or paste the text from different apps. And when the kids forget to ask nicely, the Assistant will kindly encourage them to say "pretty please".

This new Adaptive Battery works with the advanced machine learning technology.

In similar computer vision-related news, Google debuted a new app called Lookout, which helps the blind and visually impaired to learn about their surroundings through audio descriptions.

Ronaldo not a worry for Champions League final after ´minor´ injury - Zidane
Meanwhile, Barcelona continued their unbeaten streak, which has seen them go undefeated in the league thus far. We both played a great game and football is always the most important thing, more so than the controversies.

"Based on our research, we know that people feel tethered to their devices", Google's CEO Sundar Pichai said.

It's genuinely impressive, and for somebody like me who hates having to call people on the electric telephone, this could be life-changing. The first developer preview was released previously last month but now we have beta version of Android P. When told there are no appointments for the time "the client" had requested, the AI seamlessly offers up alternatives and even adds in several thinking noises in order to make it appear more natural. All you need to do is open Google Assistant and swipe up. The reason for this is that Google does not want to give users the ability to install apps that could distract them while on the road. This will enable you to get live updates as you ride in your local trains on buses.

Google Assistant is now available on more than 500 million devices, across tablets, phones, speakers, TVs, and cars, a figure that will only increase with the news that Google Home is landing in seven more countries this year. This new version of Google news will be available on Android, iOS and web, starting today. There is a new "Shush" feature. According to the Google blog post, the new feature is only trained in streamlined conversation topics and can't carry out spontaneous and general conversation. This also comes with a new visual design tweak for Assistant on mobile. For the first time Android P stops apps from gathering information on users when they are idle, including the likes of location, and network status, as well as access to the camera or microphone.

If you thought that predicting flight delays was a neat trick, just wait and see what Google's AI has in store for you next.

"Well", Legend replied online, "the Google Assistant doesn't do everything". This was demonstrated through a demo where the assistant made a call on behalf of the user to book an appointment with a hair salon.
