With around one billion devices worldwide, Google’s personal digital assistant is integrated, as Google has announced at the CES Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
Google Assistant fights with other “smart” virtual assistant (Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri, Microsoft Cortana) for international conquest. Among other things, it has been installed on mobile phones with Android and iOS, Google Home Hub, intelligent speakers like Google Home and other smart devices (TVs, headphones, watches, etc.).
Google Assistant – also known as “OK Google” – is now available in 30 languages and 80 countries, from only eight languages and 14 countries in 2017. Globally, according to Google, active digital assistant users have quadrupled within one year.
Google Assistant is now integrated into Google Maps for both Android and iOS and can be used with SMS, WhatsApp, Messenger, Hangouts, Viber, Telegram, and Android.
The company presented new Google Assistant dynamics on Tuesday at the CES report, helping users on their jobs and on their professional travels. The latest version of the assistant, thanks to the new interpretation capability, available in only a few weeks, will be able to act as a teller of foreign languages by providing real-time voice and written translation, helping the user to navigate and engage in a foreign country.
Soon the Google Assistant will check-in on flights and save the boarding pass. Google also works with hotels and travel agencies (Choice, AccorHotels, InterContinental, Exxedia, Travelclick, etc.) so that the user can close a room through Google Assistant – all with a voice command.
