Google CEO Sundar Pichai speaks on stage during the annual Google I/O developers conference in Mountain View, California, May 8, 2018.

Support for multiple displays has also been improved, and more capable hardware like the Pixelbook can connect to a maximum of seven displays simultaneously, Google said.

At Google I/O today, CEO Sundar Pichai said these controls are all part of the company's new "digital wellbeing" initiative, which is created to help consumers keep their tech habits in check. Google took a big step to achieve that goal when it officially integrated its virtual helper into Android 7.0 update. Owners of Google's own Pixel phones will get the updates most quickly.

Google Assistant will be ready to answer to problems that involve two requests at once. Gmail is growing a new smart design feature that will suggest full phrases for typing. It is gaining six new voices, including John Legend's Voice. If an app launches in a standard portrait-oriented smartphone window, you can see more information displayed as you stretch the app's window, Google demonstrated in a talk at I/O. The app also makes it easy to see past articles about a certain event or topic. Apart from that, there is the original one too with which users are probably familiar with. Now we can report that Google has made the rumors official. Here, the latest developments in natural language understanding bring together a collection of articles, videos, and quotes on a single topic. "Via our reinforced relation, Qualcomm Technologies and Google are set to extend the scope for Android and make it simpler for OEMs to roll out handsets operating on Snapdragon mobile platforms", he claims further.

Google stated the release of its next-generation machine learning chip. That means it starts in seconds and integrates completely with Chromebook features. A new feature in the Map will provide a new For You tab to the users that shows them new businesses in their area as well as restaurants that are trending around them.

A new change in the Overview menu is the ability to interact with the app cards rather than merely open or close the apps.

Instagram users may soon gain access to a "Mute" option along with a slew of other features.
