Android P beta is now available for Pixel phones, and interestingly some others too. Google and Facebook have both come under scrutiny for how they have presented news over the past couple of years, whether for amplifying dubious sources or becoming paths to conspiracy theories. Someone who's hearing impaired, for example, could use Google Duplex to make calls and set appointments.
Kicking off the annual "Google I/O" developer conference at its Mountain View campus in California on Tuesday, Pichai said we're at an important inflection point in computing, and it's exciting to be driving technology forward. But how does that matter to Indian users?
For instance, Samsung users won't have access to an early "beta" version of Android P. Samsung's camera app also won't get a built-in Lens feature that lets Google offer information after taking a photo of a building or sign.

It can also change photos to PDF files, and automatically add color to black-and-white photos, or make part of a color photo black and white.
"From computer vision to healthcare research to AutoML, we have increasingly put emphasis on implementing machine learning techniques in almost everything we do at Google", writes Google's Christian Howard in a post announcing the change.

There's a thin line between Google's aim of making its assistant like a human and not deceiving real humans with software like Duplex.
The new voices were all synthesized from WaveNet, which makes Hollys voice possible. Right now, our personal digital assistants are more about the digital than the assistance: you can ask them to turn up the lights or tune the radio, but they can't book your vehicle in for a service, make a dental appointment or any of the many other bits of tedious admin we spend so much time doing.
