Smart app launcher
It launches an app, based on screen contents. It can open Maps if you are talking about going somewhere or help you read more about an artist if you are reading an article on him.
It can let you search anything on your phone from photos to text. It can help you bring up the search along with app suggestions, news and other customisable widgets. Once the ROM rolls out globally, it can be easily compared to Google Assistant.
