Google Assistant makes its way into Google Maps

Share

Jabra launched a pair of high-end noise-cancelling headphones, the Elite 85h, that can work with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant or Apple's Siri. 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.

Real-time machine-assisted translated conversations are becoming increasingly popular, though options are still limited. Google says that support for more partners will come soon.

The company has since begun a private beta test of the Assistant with select Sonos owners, and is looking to scale up the beta test to thousands of homes in the weeks following CES, a spokesperson told Variety Monday.

Travelers can save and retrieve their boarding pass using their phone, and Google Assistant will send a notification when the plane is ready for boarding.

Google Assistant is finally coming to Google Maps, with an update to the popular navigation app being rolled out today to users across the world. For example, if we say "OK Google, be my French interpreter" you can get spoken and written translations (on smart screens) in real time. The company said it expected to hit a billion devices with Assistant by the end of the month on over 10,000 different devices from more than 1,000 brands. What's more, the Assistant will even auto-punctuate your messages now, so you don't have to dictate punctuation marks as well.

As well, Google is piloting the new feature at Dream Downtown in New York City and Hyatt Regency in San Francisco. It will be initially available for domestic flights with United Airlines in the US.

Additionally, the Google Assistant is getting a new feature for the Philips Hue bulb that is aimed at helping you wake up.

When you make a request, the Google Assistant must not only understand the language you're using and your speech, but it also has to recognize the intent of what you're asking and the context. You will also have access to the usual set of Google Assistant features.
