Google has unveiled a new feature in Google Assistant, called Interpreter Mode, which can translate peoples' conversations in real time.
It's true. Google's Amazon Alexa-rivalling voice assistant has cropped up on the spec sheets of many products announced at CES this week, including Samsung TVs, JBL's Link Bar and the Klipsch Dolby Atmos soundbar.
What stood out most to me during my brief demo was just how much Google has been able to simplify the complex task of interpretation.
"And when you're driving, the Assistant automatically calculates your ETA from Google Maps if you want to send your arrival time to friends".
Google Assistant has been around for two and a half years now and has been installed on almost one billion devices globally.
Additionally, Whirlpool previewed its KitchenAid Smart Display which is essentially a water-resistant tablet that guides you through recipes using the Google Assistant. To use this solution, hotel guests will identify their language on the Google Home Hub screen and hotel colleagues will activate Interpreter Mode to translate the conversation. In a change that will be welcomed by grammar sticklers, the assistant now auto-punctuates text messages you dictate - a feature that will be available to both iOS and Android users.
In a test with United for domestic flights, Google Assistant will soon be able to check US -based travelers for their flights.
Search engine giant Google has made huge strides in terms technological advancement in terms of deep learning and machine learning to make its Google Assistant for smartphones and speakers. It uses the existing smart home platform to expand to new device types.
Apart from the Lenovo Smart Clock, Google has revealed that several other device makers are planning to include the digital assistant in their devices. The ability to check into flights is rolling out for domestic United Airlines flights first, just like the hotel booking tool.
"We see this technology expanding to more places - it could help you check in at a foreign hotel or help you understand the bus schedule".
In further good news for Sonos owners Google also said that Google Assistant will also support some earlier models of Sonos speakers.
