Google rolls out new voices for Assistant in US

Most phones will take quarters if not years to update but at least these nine phones above, - 11 if you count the XL versions of Pixel phones - will get Android P pretty soon.

Android Auto, the in-car option for using smartphone apps on your dashboard, began supporting wireless connectivity last month, allowing owners of any Google Pixel or Nexus device to connect their smartphones to their vehicle without a cable. Moving forward, you won't have to say hot words like Ok Google everytime you ask a question. Those apps are recommended to use foreground services, while Google is still optimizing this feature based on developer feedback. Android TV will also make use of Google's autofill feature to sign into apps like Netflix, Hotstar, and more. It also shows how many times you've unlocked your phone, how many notifications you've received and enables you to set time limits on your apps. Google hopes to become your one-stop shop for your mobile photos, and by implementing more robust AI features, they will be able to make interacting with your pictures a more seamless experience.

The company has given an option to replace the classic three-icon array of on-screen buttons that have been present in every version of Android since it was first introduced in 2011. However, it looks like they're taking steps to actually help people curb this "addiction" by coming up with tools to help us manage how we use our devices.

The company's digital concierge, known only as the Google Assistant, could gain new abilities to handle tasks such as making reservations without human hand-holding.
