Additionally, it is now easier to access an overview of the day on Android smartphones. It's not entirely clear what this feature will look like - Google Assistant doesn't work on my device, so I can't test it - but it will presumably streamline the process of typing out lengthy messages. The refreshed client, available for both Android and iPhone, combines voice and touch-based elements to deliver a more intuitive experience that also closely resembles the other apps getting UI overhauls. It will showcase new controls and sliders that will help users in managing their smart home devices. The timing is not coincidental; the Pixel 3 arrives next week and is expected to usher in the best of Google in both hardware and software. There are new controls and sliders so you can interact with things easily, such as smart switches and thermostats. The same concept applies if you ask Assistant to lower or raise the volume of a nearby smart speaker.
The messaging interface is also changing, allowing you to use your fingers to quickly edit messages that you've dictated, such as to add a comma or change a word.
Developers and brands now have tools to take full advantage of the phone screen.
Physics Nobel goes to scientists who invented optical tweezers and laser pulses
Mourou's prediction came to pass a mere decade later, she said , adding Chirped Pulse Amplification now has broad applications. Gerard Mourou and Donna Strickland developed a method of generating high intensity ultra-short optical pulses.
"While you could already bring up a list of upcoming appointments, commute info, recent orders and other information about your day from the Assistant, that feature was hidden behind a rather odd icon that many users surely ignored". From thumbnails of recommended items to larger images of recipes, the Google Assistant will now show bold new visuals and more engaging cards with larger images. Additionally, Google has also announced a number of new features for developers.
Google is today opening Assistant to developers in a way that will allow them to integrate in-app purchases and subscription plans with their products.
Brands and developers can do more with visuals as well.
