Still a few months away, but it’s rapidly getting closer and the news stories about what Android “P” will bring to the table are starting to surface, and ticket applications open in a couple of days.
What are you all hoping to see?
I’m expecting Google to double down on hardware partners for Google Assistant. It’s far and away the best virtual assistant out there, correctly responding to many more queries than any other smart assistant. Yet, due to being first to market, Amazon still have more market share for standalone devices. We’ve already seen that Google’s strategy to compete with the Echo Show has been to develop a new visual version of Assistant for user in OEM devices, like the Lenovo device shown off at CES.
I expect there will be some announcements about new hardware partners in this regard as well as bunch of new functionality for Assistant and Google Home devices.
I’d like to see meaningful updates to Android Wear and Android TV. And any teases of Android P will be welcomed!
