Biggest Things We Expect To See This Year At Google I/O 2018

Biggest Things We Expect To See This Year At Google I/O 2018

The result is the JBL Link Bar, and it offers Android TV and Google Assistant all built into a unibody soundbar. When you plug the JBL Link Bar into your TV, for example, you can then say "Hey Google" and ask it to play whatever TV show, movie or YouTube content you want to watch or listen to. Leading up to this year's show, Google already announced that it will be investing in start-ups that use the Google Assistant ecosystem-an announcement that would have been ideal for the I/O stage-so Google must have even cooler things talk about at the keynote. With the infotainment system not being reliant on separate Android devices, it gives the auto owners a choice to use devices of their choosing instead of being forced to own Android devices to use features in their cars. We first met Google's smart speaker at I/O in 2016, but two years later Google is still selling the same first-gen speaker.

Android Oreo is running on less than 5% of the Android phones, but we already got the First Developer Preview of Android P a couple of months back which revealed a ton of changes that Google has planned to make in its next Android version.

We know that the internal development team has been working on an updated version of Material Design. Google says the Weave platform is also getting an update to make it easier for all devices to connect to the cloud and interact with services, such as the Google Assistant. "We think we're setting a new benchmark for infotainment (in cars)".




The move is boon for the Google ecosystem because it will help it deliver potentially thousands of other third-party apps adapted for Android-based vehicle infotainment systems into the auto as well. Android TV had "tremendous traction over the last year" from Asian cable and satellite operators seeking it for set-top boxes, said Google product management director Shalini Govil-Pai. It's a Google Home. 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. The party trick here is the Android TV and Assistant built-in.

Consumers can expect Google Maps to provide navigation and real-time traffic updates in future Volvos, along with voice-based control for climate functions and other vehicle systems. This includes Smart Speakers from LG and iHome and Smart Displays from Lenovo, LG, and JBL that are expextec to hit the market later this year.
