If you followed along with news from Google I/O 2023, you know that the company is doubling down on its plan to develop and integrate the use of artificial intelligence (AI) technology. With that, there's a lot to know about Google’s latest AI features for Android.
A Taste Of What Google Is Doing With Android And AI
At the 2023 Google I/O event, Google presented a next-generation generative AI wallpaper feature. It allows you to generate a wallpaper using a simple prompt. This is in addition to Cinematic Wallpaper, a feature that transforms your photos into 3D wallpapers with the aid of AI. These unique applications enhance Android’s customizability, which remains one of its major advantages over Apple's iOS.
Google’s introduction of Magic Compose to Google Messages marked yet another step forward in the AI arms race. This feature lets you communicate text meanings in varying contexts.
For example, if you’re aiming for a more professional tone, it can rewrite your text to reflect that. This is a game-changer for many people who struggle to convey their thoughts in text message form.
New AI-based features are becoming the status quo for startups and tech giants alike. For example, Snapify is rolling out an all-in-one AI-powered solution to redefine professional photography. The startup has raked in millions from retail investors to make it happen.
Google also highlighted the role of on-device AI, showcasing PaLM 2 and its smallest model, Gecko, which is designed for mobile device use. This emphasis on on-device and hybrid AI is set to facilitate the integration of AI into even more applications within the Android ecosystem.
Google’s drive to enhance and integrate AI technology, demonstrated at Google I/O 2023, is advancing the Android ecosystem significantly. The company’s latest features, from generative AI wallpaper to Magic Compose, not only boost Android’s customizability but also optimizes communication.
On-device AI implementation, showcased with the PaLM 2 model Gecko, sets the stage for broader AI integration into Android apps, signaling a transformative era for mobile technology.
