Android O beta update now rolling out

Android O beta update now rolling out

Google is finally waving a goodbye to weird emoji which are present in Android and new emojis will be launched to next version of Android dubbed as Android O. Android Go phones will also come with well-optimised and lighter versions of key Google services so that the overall experience on a budget phone with low-end hardware is good.

It will also consist of specially designed Google apps, like YouTube Go, Chrome and Gboard-to use less memory, storage space and mobile data.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai talks about Google Lens and updates to the Google Assistant during the keynote address of the Google I/O conference on Wednesday in Mountain View, California. Android O Beta Program is now available for the public with the new Developer Preview 2 release. The equivalent of Alexa's "skills", this feature lets users interact with third-party apps via the Assistant.

Facebook and Microsoft's Skype have already released apps that are optimized to run smoothly on Android Go. The user will be asked to login to their Google account. Also, Google hasn't revealed the exact timing of the devices or the partners with whom it will be working. Users will also have the option to choose which quality to play the video in even before playing it so that it won't consume much data. The Assistant's role in these is so users can give vocal commands and questions, such as telling it to preheat the oven, or asking how many cleaning pods are left in the dishwasher.

With over two billion Android devices used worldwide and people constantly checking mails, updating apps, downloading games and watching movies, this move by Google is seen as a way of guaranteeing the security of one's device.
