That ability to read out and reply to texts will come in handy now that you can access Google Assistant from the Google Maps app, hopefully reducing the risk of distracted driving.

It's not just small and affordable devices where this new program comes into play.

Nishikori Tops Medvedev to Win Brisbane International Title
Nishikori, who last won a Tour title in 2016, made light work of his opponent 6-2 6-2 in the day session. He served out the set to level the match, 6-3. "Physically and tennis-wise I think it was flawless ".

The announcement is not super flashy, but it's an important one for Google as it battles Amazon's Alexa. With this new Google Maps integration, drivers can use the Assistant to keep their hands on the wheel. Everybody and their mothers (and a few relatives) are rushing to make their products "smart" by integrating them with either the Assistant or Alexa. If you're in a foreign county or meeting with a person who does not speak the same language as you, the Google Assistant can be used as a translator, or more so as an interpreter in order to get real-time translations of words and sentences as and when you speak in the form of voice output as well as text on screen to aid the conversation. The speaker will begin translating in real-time. If there is a check-in available, Assistant will send a notification to remind you about it.

The feature would be introduced to more devices and even smartphones in the future. Google notes that the Connect platform expands on the existing smart home platform to add more device types. The company also noted that the existing units of both smart speakers will be getting a software update to add the Assistant support. As they don't have microphones to pick up voice commands, though, you'll nearly certainly need a microphone-toting middle-man device (such as a smartphone or Google Assistant smart speaker) to control it. This featire will start first with domestic flights with United Airlines in the US. Additionally, Google Assistant will also alert if your flight is ready for Web check-in. You can also view your boarding pass in Google Pay by saying "Hey Google, show me my boarding pass". 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.
