DISH to build Google Assistant into Hopper DVR

For example, you can just say Just say "Hey Google, be my French interpreter" to start Interpreter Mode and get real-time spoken and (on Smart Displays) written translation to aid the conversation. To use this solution, hotel guests will identify their language on the Google Home Hub screen and hotel colleagues will activate Interpreter Mode to translate the conversation.

According to a January 8th, 2019 Google media release, Google Assistant will soon be able to respond to queries "even when your Android phone is locked". At that time, this feature was only available on the company's new Pixel 3 handset.

Google Assistant can already tack itineraries into Google calendar when it detects a flight ticket confirmation in Gmail.

There is no official date for the launch as of yet but we do know Sonos has been privately beta testing the service and it is close to being ready. Perhaps more importantly, though, it will introduce millions of Google Maps users on iPhone to the offering.

For those traveling outside of their language comfort zones, Google Assistant can help remove barriers to communication. You just need to say, "Hey Google, check in to my flight"- all will be taken care of. "There's a new Assistant feature with Philips Hue that helps you wake up".

The Google Assistant will also soon be compatible with auto 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. "As worldwide tourism continues to rise, implementing solutions like Interpreter Mode ensures the needs of today's global traveler base remain at the core of our innovation strategy". "Every person has a different limit for how connected they want to be".

Google's push "is mostly a fight between Google and Amazon" for this huge market, Enderle told TechNewsWorld. I could also choose the room to play the music in and the whole experience was very similar to how Alexa is used through Sonos' devices. Everybody and their mothers (and a few relatives) are rushing to make their products "smart" by integrating them with either the Assistant or Alexa.

Google's efforts also may be hampered by its business model, Enderle suggested.
