While we haven't seen exactly how Dish plans to integrate the Assistant into its receivers, the company does say that it'll provide visual feedback as well as audio responses, which means you can do things like have it show your Google Photos on your TV.

Assistant's new travel features are US -focused for now, with the flight check-in feature rolling out for domestic United Airlines flights first, and the hotel booking tool similarly limited to Americans through hotel and travel partners including Choice Hotels, InterContinental Hotels, Priceline, Expedia, and Travelclick.

Google Assistant can now act as an interpreter.

During its event, Google also announced youll be able to manage flights with Assistant, including checking in getting a digital boarding pass. For example, you can say "Hey Google, take me home", to open Google Maps and get directions for your commute.

Google's rolling out a cool new Assistant feature to Google Home devices and smart displays: language interpretation with support for a dozen languages.

Building on Google translate, the Assistant will soon be able to translate in real time from 27 language choices.

In Android, Google Assistant works with messaging systems such as SMS, WhatsApp, Messenger, Hangouts, Viber, Telegram, Android Messages and others. The goal is to reduce the cost for developers to create Assistant-enabled devices while making the implementation process more simple.

Google didn't debut any new products of their own this year. Anywhere people from around the world come together - airports, stadiums, museums, etc. - could be a target for Google. As well as being a dual-USB auto charger to keep your devices topped up on the road, the $50 Bolt adds Google Assistant directly to your vehicle.

Google Assistant has been around for two and a half years now and has been installed on almost one billion devices globally.

Anker today announced a new addition to its Roav lineup of in-car tech - the Roav Bolt. If there is a check-in available, Assistant will send a notification to remind you about it.

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.

This is not all, Assistant can now also book hotels for you. Initially, the support will be limited to domestic flights of the United Airlines, but the company hopes to add more airlines and flights soon.

For Google, the hotel partnerships are just a pilot program, for now.
