Google can now use AI to detect the subject of the photo and make the background black and white.

One of the cases involved the Google Assistant virtual helper coping with a worker who seemed confused by straight-forward questions. Starting today, users can choose from six new voices introduced with the Google Assistant, while John Legend will also be lending his tones to the Google Assistant later this year. It will also encourage kids to be polite by thanking them when they say please, similar to a feature Amazon is bringing to its Alexa voice assistant. The Google Assistant is built right into the latest devices which include the Active Edge in the Pixel 2 and a dedicated Assistant key present in the LG G7 ThinQ.

Google Duplex is Google's revolutionary way of handling phone conversations for you. Seeing Google Assistant make a call and schedule a hair appointment by itself was incredible.

Assistant's language understanding has been improved greatly so that users can speak naturally to the voice assistant, and it will understand what it means by capturing subtleties like pitch, pace, and pauses that convey meaning.

The technology giant confirmed a beta version of the new Android P would be available on some Android devices from Tuesday, but has not yet confirmed a full release date for the software. The company confirmed today that the public Android P beta program is open to select handsets from manufacturers such as Nokia, Sony, Essential, Oppo, Xiaomi, and OnePlus. This feature will undergo more testing this summer and could come to users soon. These calls were also demonstrated and it was seen to handle the calls gracefully. There's a new system navigation. YouTube, for example, will track how much time you spend watching videos and make gentle reminders to take a break or go outside. This can be through various sectors such as smartphones, laptops, apps, software and even IoT. The iPhone X shows only your most recent apps in its view. There's sections for technology, business, sports, entertainment and others.

Created to compensate for the fact more and more smartphones have smaller bezels you can now swipe up from the bottom to bring up the phone's multi-tasking menu. App timer lets you set time limits to apps that consume a lot of your time.

Another welcome addition is a better Do Not Disturb mode; you just turn over your phone when you want to be more present, and notifications and calls will silence (except for your most important peeps).

Big push for Google Lens. Smart text selection lets you copy and paste text from the real world to your phone. Besides giving a peek into the new technologies Google is working on, the event also offers announcements that impact the lives of end users. Basically, your phone will keep an eye on when and how much you adjust the brightness level throughout the day and in the future, update it to match your habits.
