First of all, one can not change the default Siri to Google Assistant in the Home Button, but instead one get a widget for the app. Google will also let you share whole photo libraries with others.

You can already play the likes of Google Play Music or Spotify Premium on the Home but a forthcoming update will also expand such functionality to Spotify Free accounts as well as added support for SoundCloud and Deezer.

The Google Assistant will soon come up with an update and the AI will be available in on 100 M devices.

We quickly realised Google Assistant was very similar to the outgoing Google Now, with a different name but not drastically better abilities. You'll be able to point your phone's camera at a sign, and the Assistant app will use Google Lens to automatically translate text from street signs, menus, and more.

During the keynote address at Google I/O, CEO Sundar Pichai demonstrated how the new feature could be used to identify nearly anything. That means you can watch videos and open the other application and work on it. However, what is rather absurd is that these dots on the apps appear only when there is an active notification in the notification shade.

"Play Protect detects and removes apps that might be harmful".

When you've got 2 billion devices running your software, security is never likely to be far from your thoughts. The really smart innovation here is that if your partner or housemate says "call mum", it'll call theirs, rather than yours.

The company has announced a new feature called Google Lens, which uses image recognition and your smartphone's camera to give you information about whatever you're looking at. Google plans to change that by borrowing some exciting tech from it's more powerful, PC-based brother.

As part of a years-old tradition, Google will name the next Android version after a dessert or sweet-tasting snack beginning with the letter "O".

Other than this, the app can perform all those tasks, which it does in Android including telling some jokes or playing some games like Magic 8 Ball, which offer a response to the asked question in either yes or no.

We can expect in the full release of the operating system later this Summer.
