Rundown Of Google's I/O 2018 Keynote

Google Try To Fight Fake News Relaunches News Service

The technology makes use of a natural speech pattern that consists of affirmations and hesitations such as "erm", making it almost impossible to differentiate from an actual human call.

Debates quickly started over whether people answering phones should be told when they are speaking to human-sounding software and how the technology might be abused in the form of more convincing "robocalls" by marketers or political campaigns. The vehicle makers can make aesthetic changes for the software like giving its own custom icon to personalize the system further. Whenever it recognizes a photo of one of your Google contacts, it can suggest sharing the photo with that person. "Now this will really lead to a massive increase in the number of devices and users receiving regular security patches", Google's head of Android platform security David Kleidermacher said while announcing the news at Google I/O 2018, XDS Developers reported.

The Android P 9.0 does come with the standard trio of navigation buttons, but now there's a new option within the settings menu, which lets you try the newly redesigned navigation experience.

Android will provide a better understanding of how you use your phone over time. Samsung is getting snubbed on some of these new features, at least for now.

The Google Assistant combines with LG's award-winning webOS based ThinQ AI to bring new levels of convenience and control to the consumer.

That's all well and good, but this new multitasking UI is missing the "Close All" button that was introduced in Android Nougat and so many people rely on.

Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR Revealed at Wörthersee
The good news is that the Golf GTI TCR is more than just a concept, since it previews it's headed to production later this year. TCR lettering above the side skirts is also featured, along with optional GTI-style honeycomb trim for the side of the vehicle.

Ariana Grande & Mac Miller Split
Ariana and Mac have known each other since they worked together on her Platinum hit "The Way", from her 2013 album "Yours Truly". Explaining why the didn't begin dating sooner, Ariana told the mag, "We weren't ready at all, though, to be together".

Girl, 15, Murdered While on Phone Call With Mom
A person of interest in the murder of a 15-year-old girl in Utah may be headed to the Cleveland area, according to authorities. Police said French is considered armed and unsafe , but said he is not considered a suspect at this time.

Chrome OS will also support pro audio, which means that you could soon see your favorite DJ use a Pixelbook to spin the hottest mixes. TV shows and commercials have openly and deliberately triggered certain digital assistants using verbalized phrases, but hiding the phrases is the sonic equivalent of subliminal advertising. Earlier version of Android have also had the "clear all" button, which can be used to close all apps that are now being held in standby.

Google Play's new app serving model, Dynamic Delivery, uses the App Bundle to generate and serve optimized APKs for each user's device configuration, Cuthbertson explained, so they download only the code and resources needed to run the app. Devs no longer have to build, sign, and manage multiple APKs to support different devices, and users get smaller, more optimized downloads.

Experts have warned of the possible misuse of this feature by marketers, politicians, and businesses.

In 2016, Google developed the Google Assistant that can engage in two-way conversation with the use of natural language processing algorithm.

Google has revamped its news service as it gears up to fight the menace of fake news.

We've moved into an era where big data has become so valuable that companies are trying to figure out each and every way they can track you. This is of course when the feature actually rolls out to users.
