US-based search engine giant Google has finally released the Android Auto for phone screens, what it promised back in May at I/O 2019.

The app is now live in the Play Store, it is basically the same as the previous app but just adds an icon that is slightly different and it is only compatible with Android 10 on certain devices.

“This app lets you use Android Auto on your phone screen with a phone running Android 10. If you have Android 10 and an Android Auto compatible car, you can project to your car display without downloading this app. Simply plug in your phone to get started,” the company noted recently.

“Android Auto is your smart driving companion that helps you stay focused, connected, and entertained with the Google Assistant. With a simplified interface, large buttons, and powerful voice actions, Android Auto is designed to make it easier to use apps that you love from your phone while you’re on the road,” the company added.

Google search is rolling out a new feature that will let users check their pronunciation of unfamiliar words with the help of machine learning.

With this new feature, a user will be able to speak into their microphone and then Google’s AI will analyze the snippet and compare it against the word’s correct pronunciation.

Then, the user will receive feedback on how each syllable matches Google’s expected pronunciation.

‘For example, if you are practicing how to say “asterisk,” the speech recognition technology analyzes how you said the word and then, it recognizes that the last soundbite was pronounced ‘rict’ instead of ‘hsk,’ Google said in a statement recently.

Presently, it is available on mobile in American English and is coming soon in Spanish.

Google is also improving its word translations and definitions with visual prompts.

“Starting rolling out today, when you look up the translation of a word or its definition, you will start seeing images that give you additional context. This can be useful with words that have multiple meanings like “seal,” or words like “avocado” that aren’t commonly used in all languages or regions,” the company added.
