Now you can check-in for flights and book hotels via Google Assistant

Language problems goodbye: Google makes its voice assistant to the Live Translator

Here's a quick tidbit buried beneath today's deluge of Google Assistant news (not to mention the weird waking nightmare that is the CES Small World ride).

While the platform will no doubt arrive on much more kit this year, we now know that will include some Sonos speakers.

"Starting to roll out today, the Assistant can help you navigate in Google Maps for Android and iOS".

"You can also opt in to see answers to personal queries, like traffic updates to work or calendar updates".

By telling Google Assistant "Hey Google, check in to my flight", it will begin the process entirely in Assistant and it even can ask if you have any checked bags. Users can also say "Hey Google, check-in to my flight" to get Assistant to check-in for them.

As for the companys Bixby voice assistant it is also limited to a few countries and languages. By just asking Google to be your interpreter, the device will translate foreign spoken language in real-time into your native language either vocally or in written language. The biggest, without a doubt, has to be the introduction of realtime translation for its Assistant via the "Interpreter Mode". Although the smart speakers also support Amazon's Alexa, the two digital assistants can't run concurrently, reported Cnet.

According to the company, the Assistant in Maps will allow the consumers to share their ETA with friends and family, reply to text messages, play music, search for places, and add a new stop in navigation. Consumers will need their flight confirmation details and will have to say something like, "Hey Google, check me in to my flight". The goal is to reduce the cost for developers to create Assistant-enabled devices while making the implementation process more simple.

Finally, Google, which expects the voice-powered AI to be on one billion devices around the world by January end, introduced Assistant Connect to help third-party device makers easily integrate the AI into their products. With the new features of Google Assistant, it can provide useful departure updates, and will soon be able to automate that entire boarding workflow and reduce user hassle.

One caveat: the property must belong to a participating major brand, such as Choice Hotels, AccorHotels, and InterContinental Hotels Group, or bookable via Priceline and Expedia.
