Google Bakes Machine Learning Into Android O With TensorFlow Lite, New Framework

But the feature wasn't available for the device's launch, and it already looks outdated compared to Google's new Lens feature that gives Google Assistant the same image recognition capabilities, plus more advanced features. By saying "Ok Google" to the Google Assistant on Google Home or Android phone, users can ask and receive answers, manage tasks, and control mydlink devices around their home. In the real world, that means you could, for instance, point your phone camera at a restaurant and get reviews for it. Pinterest has a similar tool too. Snap a photo of the wireless settings, and Google Lens technology through Google Photos can automatically enter it for you. The Google Duo video-chatting app also supports this behaviour, but those two apps are the full extent of this functionality for now. Pichai said that as with its work on speech, Google is seeing great improvements in vision. Google maintains the feature will be smart enough so that you would auto-share only specific photos - say, of your kids - to your partner or a friend. Interestingly, Google is also adding Bluetooth support on Google Home to play audio from any Android or iOS device in the future.

The app is available to download right now in the Google Play Store, although we're expecting to here a little more about the redesign at Google's event today. With this goal in mind, Google introduced Google Play Protect, a tool which will scan your apps on a regular basis to ensure they are malware free. Google will of course use the system itself, but it is also billing the new TPU as an unrivaled resource for other companies to make use of.
