Google Assistant will finally field requests in Maps

Apple's CES ad takes aim at rivals with privacy boast

In an elaborate exhibit at CES, complete with a Disneyland-style ride, the firm showed off a slew of impressive new functions for Google Assistant, including Interpreter Mode to translate dozens of languages in real-time, and integration with its Maps app. Although today's theme was mostly Google Assistant. The Google Assistant on your smart speaker handles the "higher-order computing" and then uses Assistant Connect to deliver that information to the linked device.

You start by saying "Okay Google, German interpreter", (or Spanish, French, etc.), and Google Assistant is able to detect the languages being spoken and translate back to the other person using voice and text. For those who don't know, this is the same building where this year's biggest tech conference, CES 2019, will take place. Domestic passengers in the USA can say, "Hey Google, check in to my flight" on Android or iOS and Assistant will take care of the necessary steps. Google has partnered with chains like Choice Hotels, AccorHotels and InterContinental Hotels Group, as well as travel services such as Priceline, Expedia, Mirai, and Travelclick to offer a wide range of options.
