But what is even more unbelievable are all the assistant features the update will also bring to the app. Any.Do's assistant helps you complete tasks by scanning your lists for those things it can do for you. These three are able to integrate more deeply into their respective platforms, at least more than third-party apps.

Google is reportedly planning to launch its Google Assistant iOS app this week, according to Android Police.

And Google's voice assistant software will power all of these functions, enabling hand-free control. The aforementioned Google Allo hit iTunes on the same day as the Android version this past fall. This new initiative (called "Android Automotive" in Google's Android compatibility documentation) is a full operating system that runs directly on the car's onboard computers. Much like previous year, Google will be hosting its annual conference at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View from Wednesday to Friday.

Slated to hold its developer conference this week, Google is keeping up with the competition and bringing its artificial intelligence assistant to the iPhone, according to news reports. Fans are expecting that some major updates may be announced at the upcoming Google I/O event to be held in Mountain View, in California. Such data can be useful for Google as an advertising platform and also help in other aspects of its business like media delivery, notes TechCrunch.

Snapchat's Stock Plummets Nearly 25% Following Its First Earnings Report
The company reported ($2.31) earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, missing analysts' consensus estimates of ($2.05) by $0.26. Summit Research reiterated a "sell" rating and issued a $17.00 price target on shares of Snap in a report on Tuesday, March 28th.

Back in March during Mobile World Congress 2017, Google product management director Gummi Hafsteinsson did hint the possibility of Google Assistant heading to iPhones. The latest rumor is that Google's personal, digital assistant, of course known as Google Assistant, may actually be coming to an iPhone near you. Volvo on Monday announced plans to launch it on new models within two years (including in the XC60, pictured above); Audi plans to do the same.

There's also talk of Assistant reaching GE's home appliances. It operates similarly to Android Auto and is now reliant on smart devices to work. Google Assistant is slowly becoming more ubiquitous as time goes on.

Your next vehicle could be a giant Android device on wheels.
