This is the first significant overhaul of the OS in about four years, and it helps in bringing all the universal design language to Android. Google News will now be the only app for news from the company, and integrates the company's earlier Newsstand app as well. Google has now shown us a very powerful on-ramp, more than search alone, to get the appointments we need to run our lives efficiently.
If a conversation goes really off the rails, Duplex can then seek the help of a human to take over. And that's where Material Theming comes in.
Though we had nothing to worry about since the feature isn't being released soon, it's good to see that Google is paying attention. Google has shied away from building up a workforce dedicated to managing the flow of news for its users because there's no way it could do that kind of work as efficiently as AI could.
Among the Google I/O highlights was the announcement that Google's digital assistant will add six new voices, including one based on that of former Philadelphia-based crooner John Legend, the Grammy Award-winning R&B singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, poet and actor signed to Kanye West's G.O.O.D. When you've reached that limit, the app icon is greyed out for the rest of the day. In practical terms, it means that developers can make their app feel distinct without chucking buttons and options all over the place.
Google said the software was developed to have "natural" conversations and would be able to accomplish real-world tasks for people via their phones.

Google insists Material Gallery is for all design projects, despite the app's Material Design focus.
Google has vowed to warn people who interact with its new human-duping Duplex artificial intelligence (AI) voice assistant, following an outcry over ethics.
Video: New Gmail design is here. It was an important lesson for Google to learn. For instance, plugging in headphones could prompt your Android phone to ask if it should open a music app like Spotify, depending on one's usage habits. "It can't be the ultimate solution, it is completely implausible".
Try YouTube's remind me feature if it's available on your device and tell us your experience in the comments. "And that's really an indication of what's coming". Right now, apps still live in silos. Also, it's not yet known how Google will ensure that these partner OEMs are implementing the latest updates. The vision for Duarte and Google at large is to free up all that data and make the interfaces that lock it away disappear.
