Called "Android Things" the concept of a new home OS was revealed at their annual conference for developers and if as successful as their smartphone OS their Google Assistant technology will be used to control both refrigerators and robots and in the business space cash registers and vending machines.

The partnership between Google and Volvo should make the Assistant features in particular be baked deeper into the car's OS than you would get with Android Auto.

Over the past several months, Google says it has worked closely with partners to bring products built on Android Things to market.

Volvo announced it is working with Google to embed the voice-controlled Google Assistant, Google Play Store, Google Maps and other Google services into its next-generation Sensus infotainment system, based on Google's Android operating system. So essentially, instead of having a dedicated Android TV box, you have an Android TV soundbar.

Android Automotive is not yet deeply embedded in any cars.

This is the first device of its kind and it's not going to be the last.

Following its announcement of an Android-based infotainment system a year ago, Volvo is taking another step toward integrating its tech with Google.

Google also has been slowed by resistance from carmakers to hand over a key interface, smartwatches from consumer electronics brands that failed to attract mass appeal and TV software that manufacturers found too rigid, analysts said. In fact, Google promises free stability fixes and patches for the next three years, and even after official support recedes, developers will still have the option to push app updates to their devices.

Android Things competes with Amazon.com Inc's Greengrass system and Microsoft's Windows IoT.
