Volvo teams up with Google for Google Assistant, Play Store and Maps

  • Volvo and Google

"We provide a robust platform that does the heavy lifting with certified hardware, rich developer APIs, and secure managed software updates using Google's back-end infrastructure, so you can focus on building your product". As we saw at I/O previous year, Google is working with specific vehicle brands to integrate the best of Android Auto into the native interface for some cars, meaning those cars essentially run on Android, but without needing your phone to work.

Google Adwords also launched a new type of ad campaign that lets brands and merchants automate and consolidate advertising efforts and take advantage of machine learning. Google has made multiple attempts to insert itself as the gatekeeper of streaming media, and though set-top boxes like NVIDIA Shield and the Xiaomi Mi Box have had niche success, they've nonetheless struggled against simpler - and more affordable - rivals like Amazon's Fire TV.

For a start, there's control over the TV via voice, as we've come to expect from Android TV. Once they go over 100 devices or plan to roll out a commercial product, they'll have to sign an agreement with Google. Google says that the JBL Link Bar is the "first in a series of hybrid devices that delivers a full Assistant speaker and Android TV experience".

Google has already included support for Actions that allows users to do things like turn on connected appliances, and the means to hear responses to questions from your wearable watch. Google unveiled its smart display platform at CES, but it left the hardware to Lenovo, JBL, and other partners. It also supports Google technologies like Google Assistant and Google Cast. Google announced it would allow Volvo users to access Google Maps, Apps, Assistant and the Google Play Store in the Volvo Sensus Infotainment System. While we're not holding our breath for an optimized version of Android for tablets or a new Oreo tablet, we wouldn't mind seeing a Chromebook tablet from Google. 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.

Past year it was Android Oreo, so it's likely that this edition of the event will bring the next UI from Google that developers have been previewing since March, which still goes by the name Android P. Since each new version of the mobile OS is named after something sweet (donuts, jelly beans, lollipops, etc.), many have tried to come with the potential new name, one of the possibilities linked to Google's release of its Spring wallpapers featuring - popsicles. Whether Google does make a refresh on either platform is open to much debate.
