"Soon, you'll be able to check in to your flight (starting first with domestic flights with United Airlines), save and retrieve your boarding pass, all with the Google Assistant on Android or iOS", Google added. Moreover, you will be able to share your ETA with friends and family, reply to text messages, play music and podcasts, search for places along your route, add a new stop and auto-punctuate your message.

One caveat: the property must belong to a participating major brand, such as Choice Hotels, AccorHotels, and InterContinental Hotels Group, or bookable via Priceline and Expedia. Users can log information about their travel plans, such as restaurant shortlists, using new integrations with popular note-taking services, including Google Keep. For example: if a person is in another country or meeting someone who doesn't speak the same language, the Google Interpreter can be set up to translate the spoken words in real time into user's native language. It supports 27 languages on launch and aims to make it easier for travelers to get around overseas.

With this feature, which will be rolled out over the next few weeks on Google Home devices and Smart Displays, one can just tell the Google Assistant "Hey Google, be my Japanese interpreter", and it would function as one.

Plus, Google Assistant will help you book your hotel room in the USA too. Google relies in part on its partners to address these kinds of niche use cases.

Google's massive booth at the CES this year features a Disneyland-style ride, that gives attendees a glimpse at the different ways the Assistant can be used in everyday life. It's a set of development tools created to simplify the process of building voice-powered devices. The idea behind the platform is to let product makers put an Assistant experience on their products that utilize Assistant on a linked device without needing all the hardware and software required to build an Assistant-powered device.

And now, with smart devices in the bag, and its active daily and monthly user base having grown four times since this point, last year, Google is diversifying the amount of gadgets its Assistant will be compatible with - including feature phones.

The 1 billion figure is significantly up from the 500 million devices Google Assistant was on in May 2018.
