Google's AICore app
Google has published a Play Store listing for Android's new system "AICore" app that I previously discovered in Android 14 Beta 3. The description for the app says it powers "intelligent features across Android". "AI-driven features run directly on your device using the latest foundation models." "To keep those features smart, your device updates the AI models automatically." "AI Core manages these updates while providing AI functionality to other apps." If you access AI Core's Play Store listing on a non-Pixel 8 series device, it says the app isn't compatible with your device. Google previously said the Pixel 8 Pro will run the company's generative AI "foundation" models on-device, so this app could be what installs and updates those models. Though interestingly, the AI Core stub is installed on other Pixel builds plus the Play Store listing has the required OS as Android 12+, so who knows! H/T @Nail_Sadykov from the Google News Telegram group for spotting the listing!
