The company's also using AI to predict what you're most likely to do after an action is performed or app opened.

Now instead of having to say "Hey Google" or "OK Google" every time to give a command, users only have to do this one time and then have a conversation with the Assistant.

Google is adding new features with the second DP as well.

"To help you understand habits, focus on what matters, switch off and wind down". The AI assistant deployed pauses and "ums" and "mmm-hmms" to sound more human in conversation with real people.

Google showed how its email program can suggest sentences and how Google Assistant can call a salon or restaurant to make an appointment or reservation. Google states that this has been made possible due to several of its partners adopting Project Treble - a program introduced by Google past year that allowed manufacturers using a customised version of Android to separate their modifications from the core Android system, resulting in faster Android update roll out across devices.

Further impressive AI features to be announced at the conference included a Smart Compose feature that can write emails for you and the ability to colorize black and white photos using advanced object recognition.

Google Assistant is rolling out in more countries this year including the UK, France, Korea, Japan, and Canada. It will teach the battery to adapt to how you use apps in order to conserve energy. Machine learning has also been used to create Adaptive Brightness, which learns how an individual user likes to set the brightness slider given your surroundings.

Nevertheless, AI will reportedly help improve the battery performance in Android P.

Swiping down still shows your notification screen.

Chief Executive Sundar Pichai and other officials said Google should find ways to reduce stress from technology and improve customers' "digital well-being".

You'll handle this task (and most others, really) on what looks like an Android tablet grafted onto the car's center console. In fact, if you happen to have a Sony Xperia XZ2, or Nokia 7 Plus, you may be able to receive an official Android P beta build from your vendor.

Are you addicted to your phone?

Finally, Wind Down will switch on Night Light when it gets dark, and it will turn on Do Not Disturb and fade the screen to gray at your chosen bedtime to help you keep in mind to get to sleep at the time you want.
