Here are the most notable changes that'll help you in your daily interaction with Google Assistant.

In the next few days, Google will make the functionality available on Android and Apple devices, though Apple users will need to download the Google Assistant mobile app. A couple of hours prior, Google invited the media to their massive booth in the front parking lot of the Las Vegas Convention Center to showcase some new features headed to the Google Assistant. Assistant will also be able to give you notifications for things like check-in. Additionally, the Mountain View-based company showed off a cute little Smart Clock from Lenovo as well as a bunch of upcoming auto accessories from Anker and JBL that will include Google Assistant.

For the U.S. consumers, Google is introducing a couple of new features in the Assistant that will enable them to do a lot more than just search for flights.

The consumers can also save and retrieve boarding pass, all with the Google Assistant on Android or iOS.

"Just say "Hey Google, be my French interpreter" to start Interpreter Mode and get real-time spoken and (on Smart Displays) written translation to aid the conversation".

The details: You don't have to state which language you're speaking, as the software can tell (if it's one of the 27 languages it supports). That way you can share ETA, reply to text messages and play music without closing the navigation window.

Among the new Google Assistant devices that the search giant talks about in its official blog post, Lenovo's new Smart Clock is probably the most exciting.

This news was announced alongside that the Assistant now works with over 1,600 home automation brands and on more than 10,000 devices. More importantly, the experience was good enough that Interpreter Mode actually seems like a viable way to converse with someone you wouldn't otherwise be able to communicate with - at least for everyday conversations. Each of the two human speakers gets to hear their words automatically translated. Domestic passengers in the United States can say, "Hey Google, check in to my flight" on Android or iOS and Assistant will take care of the necessary steps. The feature has recently been integrated at hotel concierge desks across the US. If there is a check-in available, Assistant will send a notification to remind you about it.
