A digital well being dashboard will tell you how much time you spend on your phone and offer measures to restrict your usage.

At its I/O 2018 event, .

It also added AI capabilities in Photos, Gmail and Google Assistant which is now present in almost every consumer-centric device.

"We are in an important inflection point in computing and it is exciting to drive the technology forward".

If you missed the Google I/O 2018 keynote, there's a recap video from Google below, skip to around 3:10 for the Duplex stuff. Basically, Android P will use deep learning to know which apps need to run in the background and which ones can be killed to save power.

Google said that the new "Duplex" is its new AI experiment which will be available in the coming weeks. This update will enable Google Assistant to make calls and schedule appointments with doctors or salons, or even make reservations at restaurants.

At its annual developers conference Google I/O in California, Google claimed that it is creating these new features to help users use phone's OS "to do more by using it less". The new AR feature aims to eliminate that problem by utilizing your smartphone's camera to overlay directions into the real world to help you figure out which way to go. For outlets with subscriptions, Google will allow you to subscribe directly through your Google account, without needing new passwords or credit card information. All you will have to do is provide the date and time to the Google Assistant.

Google Keep will be integrated into Assistant too, as well as to-do list services and Todoist. The search engine company has started rolling out the update, and it should be available to everyone in 127 countries on iOS, Android, and desktop the following week.

As part of today's preview, Google showcased a few new features, including an improved search experience, which developers will have to support in their apps.
