Google Assistant is about to get a whole lot more useful

Available initially on Google Smart Displays before the feature rolls out to more devices, getting Google to translate your words is as simple as asking it to help you with your French (or one of Google's 29 other supported languages). One of the observers from one outlet who also tried to use the same feature noted how the short pauses were time-consuming, and Google said it is still working out some of the Interpret Mode's kinks.

As well, Google is piloting the new feature at Dream Downtown in New York City and Hyatt Regency in San Francisco.

Update: corrected the time frame for the release of the Google Assistant upgrade.

Google Assistant may be quite common today on Android phones but that isn't stopping Google from making it more accessible.

Samsung has shown off its latest robots at this years CES, the Samsung Bots and they are powered by Samsung's AI platform and come with Bixby built in.

"Our customers love the convenience of voice control, so we're expanding functionality to make it even more powerful", said Niraj Desai, DISH vice president of product management.

The company is embarking on a bold plan to bring Google Assistant to millions of iPhones. The company has also introduced a special Assistant-based feature for Philips Hue.

Interpreter Mode could potentially drive demand for Google Assistant devices among certain types of companies, notably hotels and retailers, that have worldwide customers to support.

Then, each person in the conversation can take turns speaking in their own language, and Google Assistant will read out the correct translation. Hence, now is an excellent time for Google to announce new features for its virtual Assistant.

Google Assistant will soon be able to automatically check users into flights and reply to text messages from user voice commands, the technology giant has announced. At the moment, this will only be available for domestic flights in the U.S. operated by United Airlines. This means you can ask the assistant to show restaurants nearby, set up and dismiss alarms, schedule reminders and timers without unlocking your phone.
