Table for four? Google Assistant will book it for you

As of today, the Google Assistant is available on more than 500 million devices, it works with over 5,000 connected home devices, it's available in cars from more than 40 brands, and it's built right into the latest devices, from the Active Edge in the Pixel 2 to a dedicated Assistant key in the LG G7 ThinQ.

Who Gets the Android P Beta? Of course, Android P is only a temporary name for the upcoming operating system, which is a follow-up to Android 8.0 Oreo. Some of the devices mentioned may come as a surprise for some, but that's the way it is for now.

Android P brings a ton of new features. At the annual developers conference, head of Android Security, David Kleidermacher, reportedly revealed details about the changes that are coming to Android P, in terms of security. However, a report had recently claimed that many OEMs have missed several monthly security patches, and Hope said it was looking into the reports.

"In your way into a buddy's home and say "locate wine" and you will receive recommendations for a shop that's still open and not from this road", said Oren Etzioni, CEO of the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence, a research team based by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen.

Android has developed to the point where you don't need to obsessively close your apps to keep your phone running smoothly. But this one is a little bit advanced. They're the backbone behind everything you can do in Assistant with third-party services and apps, and since Assistant is spreading its tentacles everywhere these days, they will become more and more fundamental to the way we interact with our phones, speakers, TVs, and other smart devices.

The volume slider popping up from the side gets carried out from the Developer preview 1 to this beta update.

Microsoft brings Kinect back from the dead… for Azure
As you can see below; the new Kinect sits in a smaller package but features much of the same tech as the Xbox One version. Developers can use Live Share with any language for any scenario, including serverless, cloud-native and IoT development.

The voice was under control of Google's DeepMind WaveNet software that has been trained using lots of conversations so it knows what humans sound like and can mimic them effectively. We're just getting started, but we're excited for how Google Duplex can connect small businesses with Google Assistant users.

With Wear OS DP1, we learned about things like the dark UI becoming the new default, SDK restrictions aimed at improving stability, and new rules for background apps meant to prolong battery life.

Android will show you how often you are using specific apps in the app utility dashboard. For example, if you search for Lyft you'll see see how long it will take to get home and how much it will cost - along with a button to immediately order that ride straight from the search results.

Some people might think that the most important feature in a smartphone is its display size. Say, if you ask the Assistant to adjust your thermostat, it will show you a meter.

Everything in the Android P 9.0 now has curves and rounded feel to it; the notification bar has new coloring style which not everyone might like.
