Google Introduces AI-Generated Image Descriptions and Voice Message Animations in Latest Android Update

Google is rolling out system updates to Android, Wear OS and Google TV devices. Android devices will get updated Emoji Kitchen sticker combinations and new reactions for messages. Google Messages for Android is adding a beta feature called Voice Moods, allowing users to add a unique background and animated emoji to voice messages. It also provides AI-generated image descriptions for those with low-vision and new languages to its Live Caption feature for better accessibility. Wear OS will have more smart home device controls, a new Assistant Routines feature, and an Assistant At a Glance shortcut on the watch face. Google TV is adding ten new free channels without the need for an additional subscription, but they will feature commercials. All of these updates begin rolling out today, but it could be a few weeks before they hit everyone’s inbox.
