During the debut of the Google Pixel 3 smartphone past year, the American tech giant also announced the Google Home Hub that attempts to deliver the same Assistant functionality but has a screen to display contextual information. The company announced its Lenovo Smart Clock Tuesday, a small device created to replace your digital alarm clock with a tiny four-inch touchscreen that gets to know you and your daily routines.

In the past year or so, every major consumer electronics exhibition is all about the Google Assistant or Alexa.

As of Tuesday, the Google Assistant started rolling out in Google Maps for Android and iOS to help users navigate.

In an elaborate exhibit at CES, complete with a Disneyland-style ride, the firm showed off a slew of impressive new functions for Google Assistant, including Interpreter Mode to translate dozens of languages in real-time, and integration with its Maps app.

Also, the Assistant will also intuitively notify you when the flight is ready for check-in.


Part way through 2018, Dish announced that users would be able to control some of the company's network boxes using the Google Assistant. For example, if we say "OK Google, be my French interpreter" you can get spoken and written translations (on smart screens) in real time.

Users will also be able to search for the places they go through during their trip and add a new stop. This is all to make sure that the experience "knits together the full ecosystem of Google Assistant, with the full Sonos system", says Sonos. If your handset is locked, though, you have to unlock it before the Assistant responds to you. Each of the two human speakers gets to hear their words automatically translated. You will also have access to the usual set of Google Assistant features.

According to Bronstein, the next billion devices will come in emerging markets, more specifically on feature phones. Initially, the support will be limited to domestic flights of the United Airlines, but the company hopes to add more airlines and flights soon.

During its event, Google also announced youll be able to manage flights with Assistant, including checking in getting a digital boarding pass. "The complexity of the integration has meant that it has taken this long", a spokesperson at Sonos told us.
