A year ago it was Android Oreo, so it's likely that this edition of the event will bring the next UI from Google that developers have been previewing since March, which still goes by the name Android P. Since each new version of the mobile OS is named after something sweet (donuts, jelly beans, lollipops, etc.), many have tried to come with the potential new name, one of the possibilities linked to Google's release of its Spring wallpapers featuring - popsicles. Shipments of smartwatches with Google's Wear OS were outnumbered five-to-one by rival Apple Inc (AAPL.O) devices past year, according to research firm IDC. Hence, the Android P announcement is expected to take the centre stage at Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View.
As part of this partnership, Google apps and services will be embedded within Volvo cars. This event can disclose the second developer preview for the latest mobile operating system - something which we are eagerly waiting for. But Android P seems to be focused on improvements in interface design and refurbishing of visual elements. Let us know in the comments! However, the most significant changes will nearly certainly have to wait as Google reveals a new round of hardware this fall. AI-powered smart replies will be improved for chat notifications from your favourite messaging apps, streaming HDR content will be seamless than what it was earlier with better support and a new Wi-Fi protocol that will allow for apps to provide you with precise indoor navigation assistance. Google Maps will help drivers navigate from one location to another, while Google Assistant will allow the driver to use his/her voice to control things like the car's air conditioner, music, and messaging. We have seen that till now, Google had nothing interesting to offer in this segment.
Google has been extensively developing its AI and implementing in its products such as Google Assistant for voice and text-based commands, Google Lens for object and image recognition, and Google Translate. We should hear more about it during the I/O keynote. Four times as many smart TV shipments past year had Samsung's operating system as Android TV, according to IHS Markit.
