Google Assistant on Track to Soon Hit a Billion Devices Milestone

Sonos Has Started Beta Testing Google Assistant Integration, Will Launch This Year

Sonos Has Started Beta Testing Google Assistant Integration, Will Launch This Year

Google says the Assistant will essentially handle all the "higher-order" computing, making it much easier for device manufacturers to make smart gadgets without needing to build all the headroom for actually implementing a full-on Assistant experience.

Users will also be able to search for the places they go through during their trip and add a new stop.

Apart from the Lenovo Smart Clock, Google has revealed that several other device makers are planning to include the digital assistant in their devices. Google is helping change that by deploying Interpreter Mode for Google Assistant - it will support "dozens" of languages when it arrives, including commonly spoken ones like Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, German, and French.

Google is rolling out Interpreter Mode over the next few weeks to Google Home and Smart Display devices.

Part way through 2018, Dish announced that users would be able to control some of the company's network boxes using the Google Assistant. The company said it expected to hit a billion devices with Assistant by the end of the month on over 10,000 different devices from more than 1,000 brands. Via these external devices you give commands to control basic TV functions such as turning on/off your TV or launch apps. If there is a check-in available, Assistant will send a notification to remind you about it. Like, the Sonos One and Sonos Beam speakers will be getting the Assistant.

Capital murder charges filed in killing of Jazmine Barnes
Rallies took place around Houston demanding justice for Barnes and questioned why more had not been done to catch the assailant. He says it's likely that the red pickup truck was the last thing seen by Jazmine's sisters before gunfire broke out.

These include Dish's "Hopper" receivers, auto adapters from Anker and JBL, connected TVs from Samsung, and a smart display from KitchenAid.

And it wouldn't be CES without a new product or two joining the Google Assistant family. You can find all the new features below. Domestic passengers in the U.S. can say, "Hey Google, check in to my flight" on Android or iOS and Assistant will take care of the necessary steps.

"Wait, Google Assistant already works with Google Maps, right?" "The complexity of the integration has meant that it has taken this long", a spokesperson at Sonos told us.

The Google Assistant will also soon be compatible with vehicle accessories that let you control your car's music or diagnostics simply by plugging a device into a socket - keep yours eyes on Anker and JBL. There is no word on when either of the feature will be released for the worldwide consumers.
