Google I/O 2018: What To Expect At The Annual Developer Conference

The annual event will run from May 8 to May 10, and for the third year in a row, it will be held at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California. Past year brought text queries, iPhone support, and a new SDK to help hardware makers integrate Google Assistant into their own products. Android Auto has been steadily growing since 2015 and is continuing to do so, with upcoming sessions at Google I/O to "discuss why automotive is a crucial area for developers, and show an exciting preview of what's ahead".

However, nowadays people expect something more from the rapid evolving Technology. We'll obviously get a whole lot of info about the next version of Android, but no doubt AI, AR, Assistant, and other Google products will have their moment as well. The productivity sections on most app stores are crammed with tools to help you organise your life. Although it's just a rumour so, the actual one might vary.

This announcement isn't necessarily "new" per se.
