Google Assistant Now Has Six New Voices Available For Use

Google pitches artificial intelligence to help unplug people from smartphones

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 company is always quite open about its core focuses, and Google I/O 2018 was a showcase of all the key areas of concentration at Google.

Google's next sweet flavor of Android was officially revealed at Google I/O yesterday, and this is the company's ninth version of Android.

The volume slider popping up from the side gets carried out from the Developer preview 1 to this beta update. "We'll be experimenting with the right approach over the coming months". Android P officially supports the notch design that many device makers adopted for their 2018 phones, prompting us to wonder whether the Pixel 3 will also steal the iPhone X's design.

"Android has those three buttons at the bottom: Home, back and something else", Burke said. It is a disturbing trend, and Google may have something in mind that can stop it.

The all-new Google News replaces Google Play Newsstand on mobile and desktop and the Google News & Weather app on mobile. The AI will also deliver suggestions to enhancing the images for the users. This new navigation redemption is based on gestures this time, which will require some really good muscle memory to get used to it.

However, the new Google Assistant artificial intelligence is, as presented by Sundar Pichai, the most complex piece of technology that has ever been developed.

The new shush mode feature in the Android P will help turn off all notifications, buzzes, sounds, and pings if you rest it on its screen. These features allow Chrome OS to feel just as natural as a traditional laptop or in newer touch-centric tablet form factors.

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. Apart from that, there is the original one too with which users are probably familiar with. What was remarkable and also eery, was that Google Assistant was able to pass itself off as human to the caller as it carried out the task. This new feature uses the text to speech, deep learning, AI, and more. Thanks to a digital assistant.

On this year's I/O conference Google talked about the WaveNet voice engine which makes the Assistant's voice more realistic. Amazon only said it "has taken steps to ensure its Echo smart speaker is secure", the Times writes. Now its time that it faces some competition from the similar devices running Google's software. A demonstration by Google on stage showed the display pulling up Jimmy Kimmel Live on YouTube TV. Other smartphone users will, however, have to wait until 2019 to get their hands on the Android P update. Social media fuels that debate from time-to-time, with fake news, spreading extremism and more.

And finally, actions can now be part of your custom routines and even suggest you add them after you're finished with whatever you asked them to do.

Google paid close attention while integrating the Assistant.
