JBL's next soundbar doubles as an Android TV box

On the eve of the annual Google I/O conference, the company has previewed some new visual templates, improved media search functionality, and support for group messaging using the Google Assistant. Future Volvo cars, therefore, shall offer drivers up-to-date information as well as predictive services. We should hear more about it during the I/O keynote.

The partnership extends beyond the Android Auto compatibility already baked into new Volvo vehicles. Today they have done just that with the launch of Android Things 1.0. Along with that, there's also native support for multiple cameras so that you can get Portrait Mode-style effects in third-party apps like Instagram.

This is the time of the year when Google pulls out all the stops to showcase how its software is smarter and more forward-looking than the products from its rivals Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Microsoft.

The next version of Android is nearly certainly going to get a mention tomorrow.

This builds off of the automaker's partnership with Google that was announced past year to possibly bring the Android operating system into its cars.

Thousands protest against Macron in Paris and Toulouse
Police fired tear gas on troublemakers on the margins of the largely festive protest Saturday, and eight people were arrested. The event began with a mass picnic, and smaller rallies took place in the southern cities of Toulouse and Bordeaux.


The features will be available for Volvo's next-generation cars over the next few years. In fact, Google promises free stability fixes and patches for the next three years, and even after official support recedes, developers will still have the option to push app updates to their devices. The JBL Link Bar features seamless HDMI input switching and the Google Assistant can also be used when the TV is off. Google Assistant will take over voice recognition, with its natural-language capabilities letting you do everything from change climate settings to turn your house lights on during the commute home - the same things you can do with Assistant on your phone.

Google has been rolling out news at a steady rate since last week, in what feels like a bit of a last-minute clearinghouse ahead of tomorrow.

The Android Things Console includes a new interface to configure hardware peripherals, enabling build-time control of the Peripheral I/O connections available and device properties such as GPIO resistors and I2C bus speed.

For a start, there's control over the TV via voice, as we've come to expect from Android TV. However, third-party manufacturers have been snapping up Chrome OS and baking it into their new tablets, and that's a good thing for everyone. However, still, we can hope for something better from Google I/O 2018.

We'll also likely get some more insight into a gesture-based navigation that takes some cues from the iPhone X.
