While it will be only audio with Home speakers, the translations will appear as text on Smart Displays.

"We see this technology expanding to more places-it could help you check in at a foreign hotel or help you understand the bus schedule".

Interpreter Mode will be rolling out to Homes and Smart Displays in the coming weeks. "We'll be piloting Interpreter Mode this week at CES at the concierge desk in Caesars Palace, and at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco and Dream Downtown in New York City", Bronstein added.

Unfortunately, the American tech giant has not yet discussed plans to add the feature to the Google Assistant on smartphones.

Once the feature is pushed out, users will be able to opt into a setting that allows the Assistant to bypass the lockscreen. If you're in a foreign county or meeting with a person who does not speak the same language as you, the Google Assistant can be used as a translator, or more so as an interpreter in order to get real-time translations of words and sentences as and when you speak in the form of voice output as well as text on screen to aid the conversation. However, it wasn't until Siri that they became a really big deal.

While the United Kingdom outlet is selling the Google Home Mini for its regular retail price of £49, it is offering a discount of £39 if customers purchase two units of the product. Guided by a quirky narrator, the ride takes you through a day in the life of "Bob" as he uses the Google Assistant along the way. These would be results such as calendar appointments, travel details, and more.

The updates are available starting today for users on both iOS and Android.

The feature is also one of the best reasons yet to invest in a smart display, like the Google Home Hub. The newest announcement that focuses on one of the most complex virtual assistants is aimed at Sonos users. Despite that weirdness, it's still a solid free update for Dish Hopper owners, although neither Dish nor Google have said yet when it'll arrive. For that, Dish says you can use its own voice service that's been built into its remotes for a while now. Buckle up and hop aboard the Google Assistant Ride!

Google Assistant routines allow you to trigger multiple actions with a single phrase. You can also create custom routines by assigning phrases ...

The feature would be introduced to more devices and even smartphones in the future. The number of products with Assistant support will likely only continue to grow.
