In 2019, Google has already introduced Assistant integration with Google Maps, flight check-ins, hotel bookings, and greater language translation capabilities. The feature will be rolling out in the next few weeks.

Now playing: Watch this: Google Assistant Connect paves a path for wacky future. We think that it's an API that has abstracted functions for developers. After checking in, the traveler can say to the Assistant 'Hey Google, show me my boarding pass, ' without having to know the confirmation number.

It enables some of Google's smart home devices to work as a translator.

Google was one of the companies who made a ton of announcements at CES 2019 recently.

With the Google Assistant built-in on Hopper, customers will be able to use the DISH voice remote to ask the Assistant questions and see answers on the screen like the weather forecast or games scores. What digital assistant you prefer the most and why? The new speakers will land sometime in 2019. A few prominent early-partners include Samsung, Sony, Hisense, Philps, TCL, and Xiaomi.

Those in private beta testing, a joint test with Google, have been doing at least 14 hours of listening per week and using 10 voice commands daily to test the system.

Google Assistant is winning the platform war when it comes to mobile phones but still has some catching up to do in the smart home market.

Safety is enhanced via voice commands, keeping the driver's eyes on the road, and hands on the wheel. If there is a check-in available, Assistant will send a notification to remind you about it. The biggest, without a doubt, has to be the introduction of realtime translation for its Assistant via the "Interpreter Mode". The Anker Roav Bolt is a smart auto charger with far-field microphones and dual-USB ports. The mic extends the pickup range of Google Assistant beyond that of the phone's integrated microphone.

Google said that monthly and daily active users have quadrupled over the previous year although it did not provide the number of people who use Google Assistant regularly. It will be initially available for domestic flights with United Airlines in the US. The company also noted that the existing units of both smart speakers will be getting a software update to add the Assistant support.
