Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California, is probably the epicenter of the next digital revolution. However, that's about to change.

Android P will also upgrade the way people navigate their phones.

OK, Google just announced the new features to come in Android P and there's quite a bit to be excited about! But it also wants to play up the social benefits of AI and how it's being used to improve health care, preserve the environment and make scientific discoveries. Here's a list of the most impressive features that are going to make their way to your Android phone. Finally, Wind Down will try to ease you out your apps at bedtime (which you've set).

App Actions also assists in one's Google searches.

Lens will now show you lookalikes.

The new Android P will also bring smart gestures and it will be prepared for bigger screens, notches and phones without a home button.




Once you do this, the navigation bar at the bottom changes so that the Overview (multitasking) button is removed, the Back button is displayed only in apps, and the Home button becomes a more subtle "pill" shape. Taking the current situation with the Android updates as a benchmark, most of us will benefit from it at the end of 2019 at the earliest. It suggests replies to simple texts.

Part of Google's well-being program to help minimize the distractions that may suck users back into using a phone is to enhance the Do Not Disturb feature on Android P.

From there it's just a question of clicking "Opt in" under the device you want to use, and you're away, though you may get one or two extra instructions depending on your phone.

The OTA update notification can take up to 24 hours to arrive (and it will never arrive if you have previously manually flashed Android on to the device).

That doesn't mean you can't interact via touch with these apps at all. As soon as the DND mode will be deactivated, the notifications surface as usual. Google said when they first launched Android TV it only had support for 20-something apps.

"The Google Duplex technology is built to sound natural, to make the conversation experience comfortable", the post states. (You can add certain VIP contacts that still break through.) That seems way easier than activating a phone setting, though it's not clear how a phone might get confused when it's in your pocket or bag. Although it's a great achievement in technology, especially in artificial intelligence, the similarities between the new Google digital assistant and a real human being raised ethical concerns.
