Volvo and Google collaborate to develop next-gen technology for cars

Since then, the Assistant has made its way to a number of devices and has also been integrated into Google's Allo app.

Today Google's only spot in the automotive market is Android Auto, which is not an operating system. The three-day event includes sessions (which will be live streamed) for Codelabs across Android, the Google Assistant, Machine Learning, Mobile Web, VR, and more. Whereas users now project car-specific versions of apps to a dashboard running other software; full Android integration will allow Android to independently power he entire system.

And a concept version of their visions for the future will go on display at a technology conference being hosted by Google, the firm behind Android.

The search giant already demonstrated a Maserati running Android at its Google I/O developer conference previous year. The Assistant is pretty much just Google's riff on Siri: it answers questions, sends messages, and can handle basic actions on the phone.

Google's AI will be used to enable a new feature in Google Photos, the creation of physical photo albums.

There's also talk of Assistant reaching GE's home appliances.

In fact, there are so many ways Google Assistant can be used on your smartphone. However, the assistant feature is now rolling out for a limited alpha Android user pool, so if you're not in it you have to wait for a bit more to receive it.

Now we're talking: Google I/O would be an ideal venue for the release of Assistant on iOS.

As part of an exhibit featuring Android for in-car infotainment applications, the new infotainment system runs Spotify and Google Play Music, along with the new Google Assistant that debuted on the Pixel smartphone - all on the MMI centre touchscreen. Users on the Google Home platform have long awaited the feature of Reminder controls.

The company is expected to announce an update to its Daydream VR platform apart from some announcements about the Hangouts and Duo apps.

Android Police reports that according to trusted sources, the possibility of this happening is confirmed but the timeline is still a grey area.
