At CES, Google and Lenovo also revealed a new Smart Clock - a device likely to be seen as a rival to Amazon's Echo Spot smart speaker.

Google went all-in at CES. For security reasons, it's available through opt-in, meaning you've got to tick the box in settings. This means you can ask the assistant to show restaurants nearby, set up and dismiss alarms, schedule reminders and timers without unlocking your phone. No word yet on when it will be arriving on specific models.

For longer trips, Google Assistant now provides the ability to check into flights and book hotel rooms. "Our core focus is to make a product that can understand everything you say, can hear you, can convert those intents into actions and help you fulfill them", vice president of product for Google Assistant Manuel Bronstein said. "The Google Assistant handles the higher-order computing - knowing what's on the calendar, checking for updates and so on".

It's no secret Google has the smartest and most powerful voice assistant out there. But reports of tests by others at CES suggest that the performance is about the same, though now Google is supporting 27 languages. The Assistant now also have the potency to become the interpreter for dozens of languages.

The research also highlighted that 65% of respondents are using their voice assistant for activities like making voice calls, playing music and accessing news, instead of their smartphones. For example, you can say "Hey Google, take me home", to open Google Maps and get directions for your commute.
