Google is also adding a feature that will allow Android users to access the assistant even with the phone locked.
It's not just small and low-cost devices where this new program comes into play. To use this solution, hotel guests will identify their language on the Google Home Hub screen and hotel colleagues will activate Interpreter Mode to translate the conversation.
The announcement is not super flashy, but it's an important one for Google as it battles Amazon's Alexa.
Google has some bright new ideas for the Google Assistant over 2019. Since Google Maps already calculates your estimated time of arrival when you're driving, the Assistant now lets you text that arrival time to others, at least if you're using an Android device.
Google has unveiled a new feature in Google Assistant, called Interpreter Mode, which can translate peoples' conversations in real time.
Background: This isn't Google's first go at real-time translation.
The company said more airlines would be participating soon. If there is a check-in available, Assistant will send a notification to remind you about it.
Google Assistant is adding support for Google Keep, Any.do, Bring! and Todoist to keep track of your itinerary with notes and lists in the Google Assistant.
During its event, Google also announced youll be able to manage flights with Assistant, including checking in getting a digital boarding pass.
Interestingly, the company also said that "earlier speaker models" will be updated to "work" with the Assistant, so owners of, say, the Play:1, Play:5, Playbase or Playbar could be in luck. You can say, "Hey Google, I'd like to book the Cambria Hotel in NY on January 12th", to see pricing and availability, and pay through Google Pay.
