New features are coming to Google Assistant for Android and iOS. You'll be able to use the assistant right inside Waze, enable Driving Mode to see only relevant activities, get your how-to questions answered faster, and have it better recognize personal references in your life. All of this means consuming more data, but there will be more tools that let you erase data you share with Assistant.
You're in constant communication with your friends and family. The only issue? Nobody uses the same app. Messenger, Instagram, WhatsApp — you have contacts spanning all three, and the resulting balancing-act to keep in touch can be overwhelming. That's why Facebook — who owns all three apps — is coming out with a way to call and message friends across all three platforms from one place.
Google Lens can perform many different tasks with your smartphone's camera thanks to advanced machine learning, such as foreign text translations, landmark identification, and business cards to contacts conversion, to name a few. With this year's Google I/O conference, we have another cool Lens feature to look forward to — receipt calculations.
