New Volvos To Include Google Maps, Apps, And Assistant

New Volvos To Include Google Maps, Apps, And Assistant

Google I/O 2018 kicks off Tuesday, May 8, at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California.

Volvo Cars' partnership with Google will further enhance the way Volvo customers engage with and interact with their cars.

On the eve of Google IO, and while Microsoft was talking up IoT at its own developer show, Google announced the release of Android Things 1.0, its own Android-based IoT platform.

Google said today in a blog post that the Android Things preview, which has been running for months, reached over 100,000 SDK downloads and 10,000 developers.

Are you a fan of Google's Android Auto platform?

The JBL Link Bar is controlled by Google Assistant and powered by Android TV.

The features are embedded, eliminating the need to connect an Android smartphone.




Lastly, there's the arrival of some new visual templates for Android Auto, giving the UI a refreshed look. However, nowadays people expect something more from the rapid evolving Technology.

Even though it was released in 2015, the Pixel C is still one of the better Android tablets ever made, mainly because most Android tablets are pretty bad. Four times as many smart TV shipments a year ago had Samsung's operating system as Android TV, according to IHS Markit.

At the beginning of this year, Google made a decision to change the name from Android Wear to Wear OS, to show that it is compatible with both Android as well as iOS. It also brought some much-needed improvements in the product such as prolonged battery life and a dark mode. We provide a robust platform that does the heavy lifting with certified hardware, rich developer APIs, and secure managed software updates using Google's back-end infrastructure, so you can focus on building your product.

Ever since Google came up with their native Google Assistant, it turned out to be a spotlight for them. The Pixelbook is basically the gold standard when it comes to Chromebooks, and now that Chrome OS-based tablets are becoming a thing, we hope Google is preparing to unveil a sequel to the Pixel C. We have seen that till now, Google had nothing interesting to offer in this segment. However, third-party OEMs have been fortifying Chrome OS and baking it into their new hybrid tablet computers, and that's a good thing for everyone.

Google I/O 2018 is just around the corner, so brace yourself for a slew of Google news.

So, what are your expectations for the Google I/O 2018?

We know that Android P will have native support for the pervasive "notch" and it might be getting another major overhaul with gesture support just like iPhone X.
