Android Pistachio Ice Cream to embrace the notch, integrate Assistant even more

This year’s Android update is reportedly codenamed Pistachio Ice Cream internally, though Google may choose to go with another moniker when it launches. Android P is expected to better accommodate handsets with an iPhone X-like notch at the top of the display, according to “people familiar with the situation”.

Nest is joining Google’s hardware team to better integrate AI and hardware

Nest smart thermostat official

Four years after Google officially acquired Nest, the group that makes smart thermostats is being brought in to work with Google’s hardware team.

Google confirmed today the Nest and Google hardware teams are joining forces. The big goal here is artificial intelligence, Google Assistant, and being better at building them into Nest’s smart home devices.

“All of Google’s investments in machine learning and AI, they can very clearly benefit Nest products. It just makes sense to be developing them together,” said Rick Osterloh, Google’s SVP of Hardware. Nest CEO Marwan Fawaz will report directly to Osterloh under this new arrangement.

While Nest and Google already have their hardware plans set for 2018, the two companies will start co-developing products later on. Google plans to offer more hardware bundles that include Google and Nest products, and Nest CEO Marwan Fawaz says that people will eventually be able to use their Google accounts with their Nest app.

Google acquired Nest back in 2014, but Nest has been a separate division of Alphabet rather than a part of Google. Now Nest and Google’s hardware teams will be working together, which will hopefully result in improved Nest hardware that work better with Google services like Assistant and Google Accounts.

Huawei to integrate Android Messages across their Android smartphone portfolio

Over the coming months, Huawei will make it even easier for hundreds of millions of people to express themselves via mobile messaging by integrating Android Messages, powered by RCS, across their Android smartphone portfolio.

With Android Messages and RCS messaging, Huawei devices will now offer a richer native messaging and communications experience. Features such as texting over Wi-Fi, rich media sharing, group chats, and typing indicators will now be a default part of the device. Messages from businesses will also be upgraded on Huawei’s devices through RCS business messaging. And Huawei users will be able to make video calls directly from Android Messages through carrier ViLTE and Google Duo.

In addition, to help carriers accelerate deployment of RCS messaging across their networks, we’re collaborating with Huawei to offer the Jibe RCS cloud and hub solution to current and prospective carrier partners, as part of an integrated solution with Huawei’s current infrastructure. This will enable a faster process for RCS services so more subscribers can get access to RCS messaging.

Huawei will begin integrating Android Messages across their portfolio in the coming months. For more information, see the following release.
