The Future Scope
Since the era of self-driving cars isn’t too far away, the scope of Google duplex is totally undeniable. Google’s AI can be one of the omnipresent software that can make the whole world a better place to live in. What if there will be a time where you don’t need to drive your car to get to the office when your personal AI can get you to your desired place with just the words “ Ok Google, let’s go to work”. And you don’t need to worry about the parking too. The car might drive back home without you. And same goes for picking up you from office too.
Another scenario is that you are at the office and you exactly know your baby is gonna be awake in a while. Because you baby monitor powered by Google Duplex says it. You’ll have the options to set a lullaby in your voice, rock the baby’s cradle and manage the temperature with just a few words “ Ok Google, my baby’s awake”.
Since the scope of Google Duplex’s reach and functionality is beyond our thoughts, it would be great to hold on to our seatbelts and wait for the AI to be live.
The VPS Magic
Google took the next step to revolution when it came down to navigation systems. Even though, we have high precision GPS systems, finding the right destination has always been challenging. Google introduced their VPS navigation software (Visual Positioning Service) that uses augment reality on phones and tablets to get you to the right destination. VPS uses your phones camera and other navigation hardware to guide you in the right way. With VPS you have the chance to find even indoor navigation as GPS only shows point-to-point navigation.
There were many other updates coming with Android P and one of the major updates is in the Photos app. Google’s new update helps you edit the photos more precisely and even clear out the obstacles which are obstructing your photos. It could be anything liek a wire mesh, a fence or even a smudge. Android P is expected to be rolled out on all the Google Pixel phones before other manufacturers.
