Google Home devices will soon be able to help you have a conversation in different languages.
As part of a spate of announcements Tuesday, Google unveiled a new platform called Google Assistant Connect that is created to make it easier for device makers to build low-priced devices that perform specific functions controlled by and integrated with the Google Assistant. While Android users typically have the Assistant preloaded on their devices, it is going to be a bigger deal for iOS devices, which have a massive Maps install base.
Sonos first announced that it was working with Google when it introduced the Sonos One speaker in late 2017. Here are the most notable changes that'll help you in your daily interaction with Google Assistant.
Google is bringing the Google Assistant to Google Maps on Android and iPhone. The Assistant will show you the pricing, availability and the works, which you can book using Google Pay. For example, if we say "OK Google, be my French interpreter" you can get spoken and written translations (on smart screens) in real time.
Unfortunately, the American tech giant has not yet discussed plans to add the feature to the Google Assistant on smartphones. In addition to a new set of Google Assistant devices from partners like Lenovo and Sonos, one of the most fascinating and helpful announcements coming out of CES is actually a new built-in feature called the interpreter mode. On Android, the Assistant lets you send messages via messaging services with SMS, WhatsApp, Messenger, Hangouts, Viber, Telegram, Android Messages and more. The device can manage your routines, wake you up with auto-adjusting brightness and animations, and control your smart home devices.
Google is in the process of rolling out Google Assistant navigation to Android and iOS Google Maps users. Google says they've developed this feature keeping in mind tourists and people who travel often to various countries and need to communicate with local stuff at hotels during check-in or understand local rules and schedules.
Interestingly, the company also said that "earlier speaker models" will be updated to "work" with the Assistant, so owners of, say, the Play:1, Play:5, Playbase or Playbar could be in luck.
