  • Samsung 2019 TVs gain limited Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa support

Google Assistant is finally coming to Google Maps, with an update to the popular navigation app being rolled out today to users across the world. For security reasons, it's available through opt-in, meaning you've got to tick the box in settings.

Google also showed off the new Lenovo Smart Clock, which can set alarms based on your daily habits or calendar appointments, and wake you with a gentle light. No word yet on when it will be arriving on specific models. If they plan to stay at a particular hotel or motel, they can book a room using Google Assistant.

Now translation has been a part of the Google Assistant since the introduction of the Pixel Buds in 2017, but Interpreter Mode brings real-time translation to smart displays and speakers.

Google also talked at length about how Assistant is increasingly helpful on the go. While Alexa support has already been added, fans of Google Assistant have been left waiting.

It's CES week, and that means lots of new product launches and lots of software announcements.

Verizon offers the Hum as a connected add-on to cars, allowing you to monitor your vehicle's status, serve up LTE data via a mobile hotspot, and more.

Irrigation products and water leak sensors are also on the horizon for Google Assistant, including LeakSmart Leak and Flood Protection, Flo by Moen, Rachio 3 Smart Sprinkler Controller, Rain Bird Smart WiFi Controllers and Orbit's B-Hyve.

Google has been demoing the feature at the American show and is branding the function as a way to have conversation with people from other nationalities, even if you are not fluent in their spoken language.

The use of digital voice assistants like Alexa from Amazon, Google Home and Apple Homepod is booming, according to a recent study by Accenture.

Google's push "is mostly a fight between Google and Amazon" for this huge market, Enderle told TechNewsWorld.

To provide further context, it would be wise to say that Google built a two-storeyed building right outside the convention center, dedicated for demonstrating the Assistant.

Google Assistant is also making headway in the automobile arena with forthcoming accessories that plug into a vehicle's socket and connect smartphones to auto stereos via Bluetooth or auxiliary inputs.
