For the past few weeks, Google has been releasing new updates and new tools, such as "Hold For Me," which serves as your AI secretary, and "Tone Transfer," which allows you to turn your voice into instrumental tunes.
Now, the tech giant company's 2020 "Search On" event will confirm new Search engine improvements, which will be powered by artificial intelligence. Google will also announce new features of its other tools.

According to Android Central's latest report, the new event is just like the previous virtual "Launch Night In" event, which announced Google's latest addition to its lineup. "Search On" will start at 3:00 p.m. on Oct. 15, and it will be live-streamed on the company's event page, as well as on YouTube.
What to expect
In Google's I/O developer event, the company usually details upcoming features and new improvements of its search engine and other services. However, the physical event had to be canceled completely because of the ongoing pandemic this year of 2020.
A #GoogleIO update: Out of concern for the health and safety of our developers, employees, and local communities — and in line with “shelter in place” requirements by the local Bay Area government — we sadly will not be holding an I/O event in any capacity this year.

After it was postponed, Google has been sharing new updates to its services, such as Google Maps and Google Assistant, through small virtual events and blog posts.
