Google I/O 2018: What to expect

Google IO 2018 main

Android TV and Android Auto could also get mentions this week as both products are due for updates. While Android Things 1.0 still supports devices based on the NXP i.MX7D and Raspberry Pi 3 Model B SoMs, its stable launch marks the end of support for NXP i.MX6UL-based products.

From the outside, it looks pretty much like a standard soundbar, frankly. That incorporation makes it easier for developers as they can use the same tools they use to build Android apps and devices.

There's also talk of gesture-based navigation around the mobile platform itself, similar to that of the iPhone X and the OnePlus 5T.

Just when we though Android Wear was dead, Google goes and revives it with a new name and new features. That means Android Auto will probably get some keynote time, and it could be getting a whole lot more powerful.

Further, and possibly what is my favorite tweak, Google is adding better support for media search.

About a month ago, we saw rumored images of a new 4K Chromecast like Android TV dongle through the FCC (which has been taken down since).

Volvo is not the only vehicle manufacturer partnering with Google to bring out infotainment systems.

This is the first device of its kind and it's not going to be the last. These are the Amazon Echo Show-like devices from LG, JBL, and Lenovo that all sport Google Assistant.

Google has already included support for Actions that allows users to do things like turn on connected appliances, and the means to hear responses to questions from your wearable watch. But other developers will have the option of leveraging the same OS to create their own products.And if you're looking to create a new Android Things product, Google is offering a limited program to partner with the broader Android Things team for technical guidance and support.

The platform could bring its Google Assistant virtual helper to refrigerators and robots and familiar designs to cash registers and vending machines.

This week, Google and Volvo have announced that Google Maps, Google Assistant, and even the Play Store will be coming to Volvo's Sensus infotainment system.

Android variants thrive in China, where Google does not operate. However, third-party OEMs have been fortifying Chrome OS and baking it into their new hybrid tablet computers, and that's a good thing for everyone.
