Google Maps Assistant integration would be one of the most important Google Assistant updates that the giant Internet company announced during CES 2019.

Also at CES Google announced Interpreter Mode for Google Assistant, created to allow the service to operate as a dedicated translation device - running at a hotel check-in desk, for example, to display translations for travelers who don't speak the language.

One Billion devices will feature Google Assistant by the end of the month.

According to the company, the Assistant in Maps will allow the consumers to share their ETA with friends and family, reply to text messages, play music, search for places, and add a new stop in navigation.

Google Assistant in cars: Google has worked with companies like JBL and Anker to launch Anker Roav Bolt and JBL Link Drive that plug into user's car's socket and enable them to use Google Assistant hands-free. Google Assistant will soon let you do checks-in to your flight, save and retrieve your boarding pass. Google has partnered with chains like Choice Hotels, AccorHotels and InterContinental Hotels Group, as well as travel services such as Priceline, Expedia, Mirai, and Travelclick to offer a wide range of options.

Google this week debuted a slew of new capabilities for its artificial intelligence software, Google Assistant, at CES in Las Vegas.

The updates are available starting today for users on both iOS and Android.

Apart from the Lenovo Smart Clock, Google has revealed that several other device makers are planning to include the digital assistant in their devices.

"You can ask your Google Assistant to show restaurants nearby, set up and dismiss alarms, schedule reminders and timers without unlocking your phone", reads an excerpt from the same January 8th media release. But between the never-ending string of new devices, deeper integration, and nifty new features, the Google Assistant looks like it's making an extra big push for 2019.

Then, each person in the conversation can take turns speaking in their own language, and Google Assistant will read out the correct translation. By saying, "Hey Google, check in to my flight", the assistant will walk through the steps of checking in. "There's a new Assistant feature with Philips Hue that helps you wake up".
