Sonos will add Google Assistant to its speakers this year

Language problems goodbye: Google makes its voice assistant to the Live Translator

The new features are to be introduced during 2019, the company said, during its appearance at CES in Las Vegas.

9 during CES 2019, that the smart assistant (Google Assistant) will be accessible on more Android phone lock screens.

Meanwhile, for all your bedside requests, Google also showed off Lenovo's new Smart Clock which puts all of the Assistant's features in a handy $80 (£63) companion (UK pricing and availability TBA).

Another interesting Assistant announcement is auto-translation on smart display speakers, letting the AI helper act as a real-life translator in 27 different languages.

Google's virtual assistant will tie-up with Google Maps for better navigation.

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

And in case you haven't been paying attention to Google's activities in that direction, the company, in June 2018, invested $22 million into KaiOS - which builds operating systems for feature phone manufacturers such as Nokia and the like.

In the area of travel, Google announced that Assistant will also soon be able to check you into your flight, which means instead of digging through emails to find your confirmation number, you can bark at the AI helper to "check in to my flight". If they plan to stay at a particular hotel or motel, they can book a room using Google Assistant.

They will have some help though, as National Basketball Association great Shaquille O'Neal has pledged to cover the funeral costs. Hopkins said it was to help the family with funeral costs, too, and hospital bills for Jazmine's mother or other family needs.

CES 2019 has come to an end.

Google Assistant might be pretty much a standard option for Android phones, but Google found another way to extend its reach.

Programmed with Radio Barging Technology, the device allows users to listen to the radio, and immediately quieten when a "Hey Google" voice command is detected.

Once enabled, you can get restaurant recommendations, turn off alarms and schedule reminders, among other features, all without having to unlock the handset. "There's a new Assistant feature with Philips Hue that helps you wake up". And if the last couple of days have told us anything, it is that the Google Assistant is at the helm of its CES strategy.

Google Assistant can now act as an interpreter.

Now playing: Watch this: Google Assistant Connect paves a path for wacky future.

Sonos hasn't exactly confirmed which of its "older" speakers will be supported by the Google Assistant, but we can imagine it will mimic what's available with Amazon's Alexa.
