Google rolls out new voices for Assistant in US

10 May 2018

Users can use these statistics to set App Timer, which will remind you whenever you are close to your usage limit for that particular app.

"Hi, I'm calling to book a hair appointment for a client", said a realistic-sounding automated voice in a demo from the conference stage. I'm not sure yet.

"That was a real call you just heard".

The Google I/O developer conference is Google's biggest event where the company shows off its new products and exciting features. This will give you more overall battery life-always a plus. If Google succeeds in becoming to visual search what it has become for text-based search, the company can establish itself in a growing field. The idea is to create machines that sound and act more human-like in interactions with people. Yesterday, during the I/O keynote, Google announced six new voices for Google Assistant.

Israel says 'nearly all' Iranian targets hit
The Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted several rockets and the others failed to reach Israeli territory, he said. Russia's support for the Assad regime in Syria and its relationship with Tehran present worrying possibilities for Israel.

Have you ever caught yourself checking your texts under the tablecloth while out to dinner? At its core, this technology lets us synthesize information and put it together in a way that helps you make sense of what's happening, and what the impact or reaction has been. In both cases, the receivers of the call did not seem to know that they were talking to an artificial intelligence voice as the Google assistant inserted natural-sounding "ums" and "uhs" between sentences and was quick to understand context.

Android P is the newest iteration of the Android OS, and it's shaping up to the the smartest one yet.

What do you think about the new features being added to Google Assistant? In "For You", users will get a five-story briefing - curated by Google - which will be "a mix of the most important headlines, local news and the latest developments on the topics you're interested in". For example, if a user searches for a movie, then he will also see suggestions for ticket booking or to buy merchandise.

While Google has escaped the worst of the criticism leveled at Facebook, lawmakers have raised questions about how its YouTube video site, news aggregation and data algorithms overstep privacy concerns and shape public opinion.

Israel Defense Forces Say Iran Launched Missiles At The Golan Heights
Israeli officials have repeatedly underlined that they will not allow the Revolutionary Guards to use Syria to threaten Israel. We may also see offensive measures to push back from the Iranians, and the most likely place for any such move is Syria.

Google said the updates are part of a broader new digital well-being initiative that's just beginning. As more and more phones come with tall, full-screen displays, this feature will allow users to make complete use of the screen as well as making one-handed use easier. Google has upgraded the user interface on the Android P a lot, it does look kind of familiar but doesn't feel like it.

The presentation was promptly succeeded by a heated discussion about whether people answering the phone had to be briefed they're speaking with an artificial intelligence software and how technology can be misused in the guise of more credible "thefts" by marketers or even during political propaganda. And a "wind down" mode will fade the screen to grey at a designated time to help you disconnect before bed. At that time, the device will again go silent and the front of the device will dim to help users disconnect before bed. This is why during the new setup process, users will be able to quickly choose the apps from the suggested list.

Android P beta was released by Google on Tuesday along with some of the features details.

"Say you connect your headphones to your device, Android will surface an action to resume your favorite Spotify playlist", Google explains in a blog post. Another is called Newscasts. After accepting Android Beta Program Terms of Service, you will be able to share your feedback as well by joining Android Beta Program Google+ community.
