Google I/O 2018: Android TV Update to Bring New Setup and Autofill; ADT-2 Launched For Developers

Some of the features are very innovative and almost creepily intelligent. 20 years ago, I argued that Microsoft copying Apple's Mac GUI in Windows-which it most certainly did-was, in fact, beneficial because it brought WIMP (windows, icons, menus, pointer) computing to the masses.

"A lot of folks have drawn attention to the risks of AIs masquerading as humans, which Duplex seems to normalize", said Miles Brundage, a research fellow at the University of Oxford's Future of Humanity Institute.

The Android P Developer Preview 2 is compatible with Sony Xperia XZ2, Essential PH-1, Nokia 7 Plus, Oppo R15 Pro, Vivo X21, Vivo X21 UD, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, and the upcoming OnePlus 6 smartphone.

Again, thank the iPhone here. At the same time, input methods are also evolving and while Google didn't say so today, it appears the team is looking at how it can support features like a touchpad in the car.

There's also a "shush" feature, which will automatically silence incoming calls and notifications when you flip the phone over, as well as something called "wind down". A text that popped up on the Range Rover's infotainment display made it clear who was texting, who was included on the message and - since we were parked - a small preview of the text.

Over the course of the last few days, Google teased a few updates to Android Auto, its platform for bringing its mobile operating system to the car.

The tech giant unveiled a number of "Digital Wellbeing" features for Android at its 2018 I/O conference on Tuesday, aimed at helping users develop healthier relationships with their devices.
