Google on Monday said that it will be showcasing six Android experiences at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2024 in Barcelona, Spain.

"At MWC Barcelona, we’re sharing how our latest AI technologies and multi-device experiences can help you get more done across the Android ecosystem," Google said.

One of the six features will be Circle to Search: Only on Android. The feature lets users instantly search anywhere on their phone without switching apps.

In the Circle to Search exhibit at MWC, the company said "explore what you can circle, highlight, scribble or tap — like interesting landmarks, dishes you want to try and more."

Circle to Search is available now on select Android premium phones, including the Pixel 8, Pixel 8 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S24 series.

Another feature is Best Take on Pixel 8 and 8 Pro, which is an AI-powered feature in Google Photos on Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro that helps users nail a group photo.

"Try it out with your own group at MWC -- just take a few photos and Best Take will capture everyone’s best expression in one shot," Google said.

Google is also showcasing some features of the Pixel Fold. One such feature is Pixel Fold's Dual Screen interpreter mode: This mode displays live translations to help break down language barriers.

At MWC, users will see that the Fold's unique design displays translations on both screens (one on each side), so they can have a natural, uninterrupted conversation -- which is especially helpful when they’re travelling.

Google has added some new features to its Android Auto, which is showcased at MWC 2024. Users can experience the new messaging features on Android Auto through the BMW i5 M60 at MWC. Using AI, Android Auto automatically summarises long texts (even group chats) and suggests relevant replies so users can keep in touch without compromising safety on the road.

While you’re behind the wheel, explore the latest apps on Android Auto, including productivity apps like Zoom, smart home apps and more, the tech giant mentioned.

In addition to this, on February 26, Google DeepMind CEO and Co-Founder Demis Hassabis will join renowned tech journalist Steven Levy for a fireside chat called "A new era of intelligence".

As per the company, they will be discussing the ways AI is poised to transform the world -- from tackling major scientific problems like energy, climate change and drug discovery, to transforming the way people create, communicate and do business.

Furthermore, in its demo space, Google will be showcasing how the McLaren Formula 1 team uses Android devices to take their performance to the next level.

Users will get to see how McLaren uses Android-powered Samsung devices -- including Galaxy smartphones, watches and tablets -- across its race weekend operations.

From Chrome browser to Android, the tech giant mentioned that McLaren's F1 racing team relies on Google's technology in the McLaren Technology Centre and at the track to improve collaboration and better analyse track data.
