Google Assistant’s new features make it more useful for travelers

Google unveils instant language translator that lets people hold conversations in real time

Google gives the example of a company creating an e-ink display that can project the weather or a calendar, while harnessing the power of Assistant Connect to show you content from your linked smart speaker.

Although Android users will get the most out of Google Assistant's integration into Maps, it looks like Google is squarely targeting iOS users, in a bid to lure them away from Apple's own voice assistant Siri.

Although Google keep promising full Google Assistant functionality everywhere it is still not here. Domestic passengers in the U.S. can say, "Hey Google, check in to my flight" on Android or iOS and Assistant will take care of the necessary steps.

Constitution is in order, then get back to opening up our government instead of taking our rights away". But Rubio's office says the bill allows the governments "to counter economic warfare against Israel".

If you know which hotel you want to stay, you can book a room using the Google Assistant with partners like Choice Hotels, AccorHotels, InterContinental Hotels Group, Priceline, Expedia, Mirai and Travelclick - an Amadeus company. To get started, you can say "Hey Google, be my French interpreter", and when the other person speaks in French, the Assistant device will translate in real-time, either in spoken word or via written translation on a Smart Display.

'With just your voice, you'll be able to share your ETA with friends and family, reply to text messages, play music and podcasts, search for places along your route, add a new stop and auto-punctuate your message, ' Google said in a statement. You will be able to ask it to show you nearby restaurants, set and dismiss alarms, schedule reminders and timers, all without unlocking the phone.

As usual, though, you'll notice some differences in the Google Maps/Assistant experience depending on what kind of device you're using. Device owners can expect to see Interpreter Mode arrive some time in the next few weeks. Google is now bringing this feature to all Android devices in the next few weeks.
