Android apps can now do a Netflix and hide from rooted phones

19 May 2017

One of the biggest takeaways from the Google I/O 2017 developers conference has got to be improvements coming to the company's artificial intelligence Assistant.

Assistant is now available on the iPhone from today (it had previously just been available on certain Android phones, and the Google Home).

Google whittled down the 57 finalists to choose the best app or game across 12 categories - and the winners include some familiar faces. Or point the camera at the exterior of a restaurant and it will pull up reviews of the place. But with the latest function in the Play Console, rooted Android devices could gradually start loosing support for downloading some apps from the Play Store.

Pinterest has a similar tool.

She accused him of having sex with her as she slept without using a condom despite repeatedly having denied him unprotected sex. Ny told reporters that the WikiLeaks founder had "tried to dodge all attempts at arrest" by British and Swedish authorities.

The most interesting feature of the new API is the Google Assistant integration. For instance, Photos will notice when you take a shot of a friend and nudge you to send it to her, so you don't forget.

Google also unveiled "Photo Books", where users will be able to ask its AI to trawl through all the photos it has of a person and automatically generate a picture book using them. Meanwhile, the already existing data saving feature in apps like Chrome will be activated by default.

One potentially unsettling new feature in Photos will let you automatically share some or all of your photos with other people. Essentially, the feature lets you input an "Ok Google" command as well as the reply you wish Assistant gives you for that specific query.

In the Android O area of Vitals, Google Play Protect is envisioned to figure prominently and the chief design is to regularly scan installed applications to ensure they're not loaded with harmful elements.

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". Later this year they will be replaced with more traditional round emojis like the ones seen on Apple and Android devices. Google Assistant is more proactive and smarter, but it's also improving far more quickly than any other AI solution on the market. This OS is being specially developed to run on low end phones, even if the RAM is just 512MB and the connectivity is 2G.

However, industry experts are little positive with Android GO. Now operating systems, or rather Android-based "forks" increasingly include more configuration options that have standardized the processes of personalization and editing of smartphones.

Google's computer programs are gaining a better understanding of the world, and now it wants them to handle more of the decision-making for the billions of people who use its services. Google CEO Sundar Pichai talked AI non-stop during his Google I/O keynote and he's rearchitecting the company to be "AI-first".
