Find My Device: new name and features for Google's Android Device Manager

Android Instant Apps enable the users to experience immersive and lovely apps, with smooth animations and material design, without the need of installing the apps on their devices.
Google, Microsoft, Apple and Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) are competing to establish the dominant voice-powered digital assistant, which many in the industry believe will supplant keyboards and touch screens as a primary way that users interact with technology. You can download this Google Assistant app from the iTunes or App Store and can instantly start using it.
"And with more than 50 billion apps scanned every day, Google's machine learning systems are always on the lookout for new risks", the company said.
If you own any of the Pixel phones or some of the older supported devices, it is possible to immediately enter the public beta program to experiment with Android O. The changes are plenty including more ways to access apps, better notifications but the least talked about of them all is the emojis.
Also new, Spotify Free, something Alexa definitely doesn't have, and a number of new U.S. streaming services, Soundcloud, Deezer and most importantly perhaps, Bluetooth streaming. You can ask the app anything from weather to Cricket score and other useful data which you want to ask to a person. Unfortunately, the rollout has taken place at a snail's pace as there are now only six devices that support Android apps on the stable version of the operating system.
All of these devices will by design answer to the same so-called hot word - "Okay Google" - to jump into action and answer your questions and demands.
Additionally, Google plans to expand the Assistant's functionality for shopping, allowing you to purchase items via voice command similar to the current feature on Google Home.
At the moment, that missing piece of not assigning a phone number to the Google Home will prevent that, but it's a taste of the beginning of the end. Instead, the Assistant will pull the relevant details from information you've previously shared with Google.
It also has the chance to be Google's most important and biggest platform, and eventually encompass and devour everything else the company has to offer.
Android Go has a feature that more easily tracks mobile data usage and ties automatically with the billing systems of wireless carriers, Samat said.
