Language problems goodbye: Google makes its voice assistant to the Live Translator

Google LLC made its presence known at ‎the CES consumer electronics show in Las Vegas this week, introducing a slew of new capabilities and integrations for its voice assistant.

At CES, Google and Lenovo also revealed a new Smart Clock - a device likely to be seen as a rival to Amazon's Echo Spot smart speaker.

"By bringing the best of Google services and AI to the Assistant, we're focused on building the most helpful digital assistant when you're at home, in your vehicle or on the go", he said. Interpreter Mode will support dozens of languages, according to Google, so you can conduct conversations in real time with an interpreter on hand.

Google's virtual assistant will tie-up with Google Maps for better navigation. New voice commands let users share ETA with contacts, auto-punctuate messages, and reply to texts across a wider range of instant-messaging platforms. Google Assistant will arrive on Google Maps for Android and iOS starting this week, expanding the reach and availability of the voice-enabled assistant by significant magnitude. Some of the participating hotels include Choice Hotels, InterContinental Hotels, Priceline, Expedia, and Travelclick. Currently, this feature is currently live in the USA on both Android and iOS. Google plans to add more airlines and flights soon, per its announcement. "There's a new Assistant feature with Philips Hue that helps you wake up". In order to enable the so-called " Pixel lockscreen Assistant" feature, you'll have to opt-in through the phone's settings.
