Google unveils Assistant delights at CES: What you need to know
Google's virtual assistant, Google Assistant, is one of the most popular and powerful voice-based platforms in the world. It can help you with tasks, entertainment, information, communication and more on over 1 billion devices, including smart speakers, displays, phones, TVs, cars and headphones.
At CES 2021, Google unveiled some new Assistant delights that will make it even more helpful and convenient for your everyday needs. Here are some of the key announcements and what they mean for you.
Google Assistant Connect: Bringing voice to more devices
One of the challenges for device manufacturers is to integrate voice capabilities into their products in a cost-effective and easy way. Google Assistant Connect is a new platform that aims to solve this problem by providing a simple way to add voice functionality to any device.
With Google Assistant Connect, device makers can use Google's existing smart home platform to create custom devices that work with the Assistant, without requiring a lot of hardware or software development. For example, a device maker could create a simple e-ink display that shows weather or calendar information from the Assistant, or a button that triggers a smart home routine.
Google Assistant Connect will be available later this year for device manufacturers to join and create new voice-enabled products.
Google Assistant in Google Maps: Making navigation easier
Google Maps is one of the most popular and useful apps for getting around, whether you're driving, biking, walking or taking public transit. Now, Google is bringing the Assistant to Google Maps to make navigation even easier and safer.
With the Assistant in Google Maps, you can use voice commands to control your navigation, such as asking for alternative routes, traffic updates, nearby gas stations or restaurants. You can also use the Assistant to send messages to your friends or family, such as your estimated time of arrival or your location. You can also access your music, podcasts or audiobooks without leaving the navigation screen.
The Assistant in Google Maps is rolling out now for Android and iOS users in all languages supported by the Assistant.
Google Assistant for travel: Simplifying your trips
Traveling can be stressful and time-consuming, especially when you have to deal with booking flights, hotels, car rentals and other arrangements. Google Assistant wants to make travel easier by helping you with these tasks using voice commands.
Soon, you'll be able to ask the Assistant to check you into your flight (starting with US domestic flights), retrieve your boarding pass, and send it to your phone. You'll also be able to ask the Assistant to book a hotel room at your destination, using Google's partner network of hotels and online travel agencies. You'll be able to see photos, reviews, prices and availability of different options before confirming your reservation.
The Assistant for travel will be available in the coming months for users in the US.
