This new AI feature is the best thing to come out of Google I/O 2024

What you need to know

  • Google previewed a new Android feature at Google I/O 2024 that uses AI to detect phrases associated with scams in phone calls. 
  • Over $12 billion was lost in the U.S. due to digital theft last year, with phishing scams — including fake phone calls — representing the most number of reports. 
  • Since the AI call detection feature uses on-device AI, there aren’t any major privacy implications to using it. 

Google I/O 2024 was the most developer-focused developer conference we’ve seen in quite a while, and it was full of AI talk. The phrase was mentioned in some form or another more than 120 times, in fact. For consumers, most of the AI features mentioned won’t have a tangible impact on the way they use technology. That’s with the notable exception of one feature — AI scam call detection — that could become the most important Android feature added to the platform in years. 

Google is testing scam detection alerts. Although the company shared a preview of the feature in action at Google I/O, we don’t have a release date or many details at the moment. Google promised to share more details “later this year,” and that’s the best timeline we have. Still, the idea behind the feature is a great one, and it looks impressive in demos.
