The Android-backed infotainment system will give drivers access to hundreds of apps developed by Google, Volvo, or third-party developers. We can expect some updates from Google around Android Wear, Android Instant Apps, Android TV, Chromecast, and Android Auto during the three-day conference. It can be used to integrate apps on the platform itself and change the settings from then and there.
It's also said that this version of Android will have full support for the Google Assistant, which is called up using a button on the steering wheel. The aforementioned Google Allo hit iTunes on the same day as the Android version this past fall. Apple's iOS is the second-largest mobile operating system worldwide, and it makes sense for Google to expand its efforts towards its competitors. Much like past year, Google will be hosting its annual conference at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View from Wednesday to Friday. The Assistant is pretty much just Google's riff on Siri: it answers questions, sends messages, and can handle basic actions on the phone.
Developers have been viewing the APK files of this recent update to Google Home application and state that they have found a string that might bring in reminder controls as well as some other new features. Google is also improving its assistant. Almost, all the major OEM's are also working on the development of these Assistants.
Google has made strides with Google Assistant since it began rolling the feature out with its Pixel phones and Nougat OS in February. On a practical level, AI features in services like the Google Assistant and Google Photos allow automatic recognition of the content photographs, the context of a communication and more. With that being said, the new infotainment and connectivity services will be introduced on new Volvo cars within two years. Google is going to arrange its I/O event on 17 of May. Are the Android Automotive apps different from Android Auto?
