This is the feature developed by HTC that lets you squeeze the phones sides to summon Google Assistant. Will the Google Assistant creep us out with a new ability to simulate human behavior?

Google Lens is another major avenue for the company to showcase its AI-backed image processing advancements. Upgrades of Google's other operating systems, ChromeOS and WearOS, are also on the docket. It's a feature that comes baked in many four-wheelers and enables you to project a revamped Android interface from your smartphone to a display on the car's infotainment system. We could expect to learn about the same at Google I/O tomorrow. The Android Security Patch for May 2019 is available for Android 9 Pie devices and the rollout should complete in the next couple of days.

Android TV, Chrome OS, ARCore, Google Maps, and even Google's "Daydream" VR plans could get the much-needed attention they've lacked for some time. Notably, Google isn't shying away from stating that the Pixel 3a is made of polycarbonate as opposed to the glass design on the standard Pixel3, with Google providing a warning about the device being scratch resistant, but how "paint may flake off" upon impact.
