Google rolling out Google Maps Assistant navigation for Android, iOS

CES conference

Predictably, Android users will be able to get their hands on a few more features than iOS users, including sending messages via Whatsapp, Google Hangouts, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, Viber, and other third-party messaging applications.

Then, each person in the conversation can take turns speaking in their own language, and Google Assistant will read out the correct translation.

As cool as smart displays - like Google's Home Hub - are, I've never really wanted one. It incorporated a similar feature into earbuds in November 2017 and already offers a similar service via Google Translate.

Unfortunately, the American tech giant has not yet discussed plans to add the feature to the Google Assistant on smartphones. It provides you with vehicle diagnostics, responds to crashes, can get you roadside assistance, and allows you to share your location with friends and family.

Lee Merritt, a national civil rights attorney working with Jazmine's family, said there were no updates in the search on Saturday. Police now say they do not believe the family was targeted and that the shooting may have been a case of mistaken identity.

It didn't say when, but as Google's announcement focused on the brand's 2019 activity, we know it'll be sometime this year. Other Android devices will gain this feature in the next couple of weeks. It uses the existing smart home platform to expand to new device types. The Assistant will show you the pricing, availability and the works, which you can book using Google Pay. Buckle up and hop aboard the Google Assistant Ride!

People have been wanting Google Assistant to be able to do flight check-ins for a long time and it's finally coming. "We're also adding support for Google Keep, Any.do, Bring! and Todoist, when you want to keep track of your itinerary with notes and lists in the Google Assistant", Google said.

Additionally, the Google Assistant is getting a new feature for the Philips Hue bulb that is aimed at helping you wake up. Additionally, Google Assistant will also alert if your flight is ready for Web check-in. The ability to check into flights is rolling out for domestic United Airlines flights first, just like the hotel booking tool.
