Google CEO unveils new era of robots that sound like humans

Alphabet's Google (GOOG +0.7%)(GOOGL +0.9%) launches an Android Things operating system spinoff for home appliances and other machines like cash registers and vending machines.

Google today revealed that it has teamed up with JBL to develop a new hybrid soundbar that's going to double as an Android TV-powered set-top box as well.

For Android users, at least, the Google-Volvo partnership should make life easier.

Over the past several months, Google says it has worked closely with partners to bring products built on Android Things to market.

In anticipation of Google I/O this week, the company announced that Google Maps, Google Assistant, and the Play Store will be coming to Volvo's Sensus infotainment system during the next few years. 'If you're not, you say Android is irrelevant outside phones'.

Wenger reacts to Arsenal's painful exit from Europa League
Atletico will be playing its fourth European final under Simeone. The game can be very cruel; sometimes it is very nice. Arsene Wenger's time at Arsenal is over.

This is the first device of its kind and it's not going to be the last.

Apps and services developed by Google and Volvo are embedded in the auto, plus thousands of additional apps are available through the Google Play Store that is optimised and adapted for Android-based vehicle infotainment systems.

Android Things software was initially a rebranding of Brillo, an Internet of Things OS Google debuted in May 2015.

Google also has been slowed by resistance from carmakers to hand over a key interface, smartwatches from consumer electronics brands that failed to attract mass appeal and TV software that manufacturers found too rigid, analysts said. This means that stability fixes and security patches will be supported on production hardware platforms, while automatic updates will be made available for all devices as a default, making Android Things a more dependable OS.
