You'll Soon be Able to Send Someone Money With Google Assistant

The company showcased how it is focusing on the improving user experience in Android O through features like Vitals and Fluid Experience and that the beta version of it will be available as OTA.

The so-called blob emojis of Android were first introduced in Android 4.4 KitKat, and they have barely changed since then. Everyone's favorite voice-powered assistant is already the most capable one out there, but Google's enhanced AI and advancements in machine learning are now taking Google Assistant to the next level. Go to google.com/android/beta, log in with the same Google account you use on your Nexus or Pixel device, and flag the device to receive the beta.

Another interesting thing that Google is introducing with Android O is the EmojiCompat support library for app developers, that will let them include the library within their app so that the developer can ensure their app will always be able to display all the latest emoji that may be available in a newer version of Android.

Many of Google's products are vying against similar offerings from Apple, Amazon and Microsoft.

What Do The New Android Emoji Look Like?

Android Go takes several measures to make sure the operating system and apps remain lightweight and has a particular emphasis on controlling mobile data usage. Some of the issues included what texture should the tinfoil have in a burrito emoji and how an emoji for the expression "mind blown" will look like. The news comes as Google expands Android Pay to a number of new markets.

Google recently released the Google Assistant SDK and third-party actions will soon be made available on the smartphone.

Android O is not just all about the new emojis though. It's packed with new features: notification dots on app icons, Chrome autofill across apps, smart text selection and potentially better battery life through background process and memory management, for instance.
