Google Is Blitzing CES With A Literal Rollercoaster Of Google Assistant Tech

The Google Home Mini is the cheapest and most affordable version of the speaker and while it offers the same great Assistant functionality as its more premium brothers, it is certainly the weakest of the Home family in terms of sound quality.

Google has revealed that it is baking the Assistant right in the Google Maps apps on Android and iOS devices.

Not only that, but the integration means you will also be able to respond to texts using your voice, complete with "auto-punctuation", and control your music. That way iPhone owners can get all information hands free without needing the native assistant Siri.

Google Assistant is about to get smarter with a new Interpreter mode that would help users have a real-time conversation in almost 27 languages. The goal is to reduce the cost for developers to create Assistant-enabled devices while making the implementation process more simple.

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.

Google didn't debut any new products of their own this year. You will also have access to the usual set of Google Assistant features.

Sarri and Chelsea want Hudson-Odoi to stay at the club but the Londoner only has 18 months left on his contract and would like to leave.

Interpreter Mode should be rolling out sometime in the next few weeks.

The new feature is aimed at helping the consumers communicate in a dozen languages and will be available on the Google Home devices as well as Assistant-powered Smart Displays. Like, the Sonos One and Sonos Beam speakers will be getting the Assistant.

Anker today announced a new addition to its Roav lineup of in-car tech - the Roav Bolt.

Earlier this year, Google launched the Home Hub that's basically a voice-activated touchscreen mounted on top of a stand and can play YouTube videos, show recipes and handle other common commands like showing the weather, traffic updates and more. For hotel booking, you can instruct Assistant to "book the Cambria Hotel in NY on January 12th", for instance, and it will show you pricing options and availability within Assistant, which you can book using Google Pay credentials. This featire will start first with domestic flights with United Airlines in the US. You can say, "Hey Google, I'd like to book the Cambria Hotel in NY on January 12th", to see pricing and availability, and pay through Google Pay.

For Google, the hotel partnerships are just a pilot program, for now. There is no word on when either of the feature will be released for the global consumers.
