Google Assistant Now Lets You Check-In to Flights by Voice and More

Apple’s CES Ad Hits Google And Amazon Where It Hurts Google unveils instant language translator that lets people hold conversations in real time

During the debut of the Google Pixel 3 smartphone a year ago, 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. Google says that support for more partners will come soon. The Google Assistant is smart enough to understand the context and the whole experience was very slick. For those who don't know, this is the same building where this year's biggest tech conference, CES 2019, will take place.

Google Assistant can now help you check-in to your flight, and save and retrieve your boarding pass.

For hotel booking, you can instruct Assistant to "book the Cambria Hotel in NY on January 12th,".

Interpreter Mode will be able to take on 27 languages from the get-go, and will be released across its Google Home devices and Smart Displays, the firm revealed in a press-briefing.

Google has been demoing the feature at the American show and is branding the function as a way to have conversation with people from other nationalities, even if you are not fluent in their spoken language.

The miniature speaker is now being sold by Currys as part of a tantalising deal.

Google expects its Assistant to be on one billion devices by the end of this month.

Though Google Translate already offered a similar service of using your voice in order to translate words or sentences, the interpreter mode is more of a seamless method to converse with a person as the translation is real-time and instant. Google is now bringing this feature to all Android devices in the next few weeks. Google says Interpreter Mode will work on normal Google Home speakers as well, but without the added benefit of a written translation. You'll find that, whether on iOS or Android, Google Assistant now auto-punctuates the messages you speak aloud.
