New update to make Google Assistant more life-like

Google Maps will make more dining suggestions by learning user habits and be able to pinpoint users' locations by using smartphone cameras to analySe their surroundings, the company added.

Digital Wellbeing - your phone will let you know how many times you've been distracted by a notification, how many times you've unlocked it, and how many hours in total you've spent staring at its screen.

To encourage children to maintain manners when using Google Assistant, the AI will also now compliment those who say "please" when making a request.

"Adaptive Battery" will prioritise "battery power only for the apps and services you use the most". It's super-easy and actually makes it quicker to jump back and forth between apps.

Pichai launched an overhaul Google News venue that put AI to work finding trusted sources for stories and balancing perspectives to provide fuller pictures of breaking developments. The new Do Not Disturb mode silences not just the phone calls and notifications, but also all the visual interruptions that pop up on your screen.

Dashboard will display just how often you open an app, and how long you spend within them.

However, there's been no further word on that, but what we have got represents nearly everything else you could possibly want as a programmer - it makes Chrome OS a much stronger coding platform altogether. Barring Nokia and Google, all the other manufacturers in the list offer a modified version of Android on their offerings. While the home button is smaller, the space around it is basically the same, which doesn't make a lot of sense.

I really like the new gestures.

Chief Executive Sundar Pichai and other officials said Google should find ways to reduce stress from technology and improve customers' "digital well-being". It's a fluid, intuitive gesture on iPhone X, while on Android P it still feels like Google is keeping one foot in the past.

It still doesn't have an official name, but Android P is this week available to download and test on a number of devices.

Gone is Android's horizontal swipe-to-close app recent apps page, and in comes its new vertical layout. For example, "I haven't seen you" might be autocompleted to "I haven't seen you in a while and I hope you're doing well". Instead of being able to see icons for your last 3-4 apps and quickly tap to switch between them, you'll need to swipe left to see past the latest app you used.

That doesn't mean you can't interact via touch with these apps at all.
