Interpreter Mode allows Google Home to translate conversations in real

  • Apple trolls Google with giant billboard at CES 2019

There are some kinks: it won't work if more than one person speaks and requires some unnatural gaps in the conversation while it processes, according to The Verge. Google has earlier tried a similar auto-translation feature in its Pixel Buds. The feature is exactly what it sounds like - a way to get Google Assistant to translate a different language, making it easier to have a conversation with someone who may otherwise be impacted by the language barrier.

In its bid to make Google Assistant an even dominant platform, the Mountain View company has announced that it is launching a preview of its new Google Assistant Connect platform that will allow the device manufacturers to easily integrate the Assistant in their products. The Assistant will help you calculate your ETA from Google Maps and send the details to friends using any of the aforementioned messenger apps. 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. We have more coverage of Google and much more from CES 2019 in Las Vegas. With this new Google Maps integration, drivers can use the Assistant to keep their hands on the wheel. Buckle up and hop aboard the Google Assistant Ride! Like, the Sonos One and Sonos Beam speakers will be getting the Assistant.

Google Assistant is adding support for Google Keep, Any.do, Bring! and Todoist to keep track of your itinerary with notes and lists in the Google Assistant.

Protest held in uptown Waterloo to support Wet'suwet'en First Nation
The march in Vancouver is part of a larger worldwide day of action organized in support of those at the Unist'ot'en camp. Horgan said those demonstrations weren't exclusively focused on what's happening in northern B.C.

It's made up of the vehicle diagnostics dongle and a Bluetooth connected speaker that you can attach to something like your driver-side visor.

Additionally, the Google Assistant is getting a new feature for the Philips Hue bulb that is aimed at helping you wake up. The assistant will also allow Android and iOS users to check their flight simply by saying: "OK Google, check-in on my flight". The ability to check into flights is rolling out for domestic United Airlines flights first, just like the hotel booking tool.

In a related move, Google Assistant will also be able to book hotel rooms for you.
