Google announces Android P, Assistant enhancements, Augmented Reality on Maps, and more!

Mountain View (California) today opened the opening keynote of the Google I / O 2018 It's the giant search conference for the search giant. And, of course, there was a lot of good news for the company's existing products, as well as announcements of new properties and services.

Let's have a look at everything?

Android P

The new version of Android It still doesn't have a dessert name to call hers (Google, I have a suggestion), but the changes it brings are the most profound of a little robot update in a long time.

Android P Navigation System

Firstly, we have a totally revamped gesture-based navigation system, yes, apparently the iPhone X has resurrected the tendency of the gestures we lost with Palm's death: here the multitasking button no longer exists, and instead , you can view your recent apps by simply sliding the home button to the right, like a scroll bar. By sliding the same button up, you can invoke that same multitasking screen or, by sliding your app drawer a little further. The back button remains left, but only appears within applications yes, a drastic but apparently intuitive change.

Google is also introducing Android P, perhaps in response to growing voices concerned with smartphone addiction, a powerful analysis and usage control tool. O Dashboard An app that shows how much you use each app with granular notification quantity, screen time, and more; You can set limits (for example, only half an hour a day on Instagram) which, once reached, will make the app icon black and white and require you to go to the app and disable the setting to access them.

Another feature of detox, called Wind downallow the user to set a bedtime when the device enters No Disturb mode and leaves the screen in black and white as an incentive for sleep. The Do Not Disturb mode, by the way, is even more drastic, failing to fully display the notifications (even their icons) if the user so wishes.

Making the system even smarter, Google also introduced the concept of Actions, which provides tasks that you can do every moment of your day and puts shortcuts to them right in your app drawer.

Other new features include the use of machine learning to bring more battery life, a new volume control, screenshot annotation tool and native screen cropping support (yes, iPhone X launching the trend again).

The first beta of Android P is available for devices from seven manufacturers including Sony, Nokia, OnePlus and Xiaomi, which reinforces Google's promise to update devices of all brands more regularly if the promise will be fulfilled or not. to wait and see. The system should be officially launched by the end of the year.

Google Assistant

Siri, take notes! The smartest assistant on the market is getting even smarter not to mention the new look.

Google Assistant

To begin with, it is no longer necessary to say “OK, Google” at the beginning of each command; the devices keep the microphone on and have a continuous conversation with you until you say "thank you". 🙏🏼

To make the dialogue natural, the assistant can now differentiate the types of “and” think of the difference between “how much was Bahia and Vitria's game” and “set an alarm for 6:40 and remind me to pick up the kids at school” . Even recognizing the voices of children she recognizes and still congratulates their education if they complete their commands with "please". Cute.

Google will also make six new voices available to the Assistant, including singer John Legend's soft and irresistible hoarse. “Her” of real life in thousands of homes!

Most impressive of the evening, however, was a new feature of the wizard that Google is calling "Duplex." It is a technology that allows the tool to make calls by the user, scheduling with doctors and commercial establishments. alone. Of course we will have to wait to see its real-world performance, but the demonstration (which the company swears to be green) is shown in the jaw-dropping keynote: Google Assistant calls a beauty salon, talks to the clerk completely. Naturally, he asks about the available hours, describes the service the user wants, and marks the commitment all without the person on the other end even suspecting that he's talking to a robot. 😱🤯

Amazing, isn't it? News from Google Assistant should arrive in the coming months for all users.

Google Maps

Since you have nowhere to expand your coverage, the Google Maps You can focus on expanding your resources. At keynote, the company introduced a new tool that leverages Android's augmented reality skills to provide a much more intuitive new foot navigation, showing real-world directions (or even pets).

The feature combines GPS information with a new technology, called VPS that detects the images around you to determine where you are precisely and establish your route from.

In addition, the platform (also) is gaining more artificial intelligence skills to bring personalized establishment recommendations to users; a new tab called “For you” (“For you”) make combinations with establishments you might like based on previous reviews. New social tools will also be added, allowing multiple locations to be shared with friends and everyone to vote on which to go, for example.

The new features of Google Maps will reach Android and iOS by the end of the northern hemisphere summer except for the augmented reality part, which was only shown in advance and should take longer to come to fruition (and yet probably focus exclusively on on Android).

Google Photos

Following the evening technique, the photo backup service is also gaining its extra dose of machine learning. Soon, the Google Photos Have a black and white photo coloring feature you simply take a photo of the old photo you want to color and the application, using artificial intelligence techniques, automatically color image. The tool also serves to identify elements in images and create an effect (really tacky, I might add) that leaves only the subject in the foreground colored with the rest of the photo in black and white.

It's easier than ever to improve your photos on Google Photos. Starting today, you'll see suggestions for brightening, archiving, sharing, or rotating your photos right on them.

The platform will also have a feature that automatically identifies document photos and converts them to PDF files in addition to a number of automatic suggestions for adjustments, such as exposure, also based on artificial intelligence. For developers, new APIs will make it possible to include Google Photos search, upload, and sharing directly into their applications. The news is already being made available to users.

Google Lens

The real-world recognition tool being separate from Google Photos and instead being incorporated into the native camera applications of the smartphones it launches will be ten devices from manufacturers like LG, Motorola, Sony, Nokia, OnePlus and Xiaomi

Soon, Google Lens will work in real time. By proactively showing results and anchoring them to the things you see, you can navigate the world around you just by pointing at your camera.

O Google Lens It is able to identify basically everything around us and give real time information about the object. Some categories have special benefits: You can point the camera at a movie's poster and its trailer will play automatically; For a commodity in a store and various online shopping options will come up with their respective prices. A style parser will show “similar” options when you capture a piece of furniture or a piece of clothing and it can even recognize the text of an image and copy it to your clipboard if you wish.

The new version of Google Lens, which is still in beta, will reach compatible devices in the coming weeks.


Everyone's favorite email service is soon to gain a new feature called Smart Compose (“Smart Writing”), which is an extension of existing Smart Replies (“Smart Answers”). With the tool that (surprise!) Based on machine learning techniques, the Gmail automatically suggest sentences to answer your messages, recognizing questions, invitations, context and relationship with the recipient.

A new feature powered by artificial intelligence, we are launching the Smart Compose in Gmail to help you write your emails faster by offering interactive suggestions as you type.

The feature will work on both the web version of Gmail and your apps and should come to users in the coming months as long as you have new Gmail enabled in your account.

Google News

Google's news platform, which competes directly with Apple News, is gaining a full revamp. A new seo “For you” (“For you”) select the most important stories of the day based on your reading history and preferences, mixing world and local news, opinion articles and trends; There will still be sections with specific subjects like sports, business and technology.

To delve into a story, the platform uses artificial intelligence to present, in a single screen, summaries, images, videos and quotes from different sources. If you want to go further, you can also get a continuous newsletter, with timeline summarizing the main events, from numerous vehicles around the world covering the same information, to see various points of view and draw their own conclusions on the topic. .

Incidentally, fighting the false news is one of the focuses of the renewal of the Google News; at the bottom of each screen, a section with frequently asked questions, fact checks and tweets Related information is displayed to the user, complementing the information displayed above.

O Newsstand, the giant's newsstand, will be merged with the platform and allow users to buy or subscribe to digital editions of newspapers and magazines around the world.

The new Google News will be available on the web, iOS and Android; More than 127 countries will be covered by the platform, including Brazil. The app (which replaces the old Google Play Newsstand and Google News & Weather) will be available next week.

Smart displays

Equipped with the newly launched Android Things, the Smart displays Google will basically be Google Home speakers with limited functionality and battery-free tablets or tablets, as you prefer. You can view recipes, watch videos, chat with Google Assistant, search Google, video calls, and more using just your voice.

Several restaurant chains, such as Starbucks and Domino’s Pizza, have partnered with Google to offer delivery services directly from the devices (US only for now), which will be manufactured by partners such as LG, Lenovo and JBL. It is not known whether Google itself intends to manufacture a version of the concept, but the first Smart Displays will hit the market in the coming months.
