Googleannounced that a new feature called Interpreter Mode will be rolling out on Google Home and Smart Displays over the next couple weeks. You can just say, "Hey Google, check in to my flight", Google will automatically retrieve your flight confirmation number from your mail and start the check-in process.
Background: This isn't Google's first go at real-time translation.
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). Some of these languages are Arabic, Hindi, Chinese, English, French, German, Russian, Thai, and Korean.
While putting Assistant into Maps seems a logical next step within the Google ecosystem, the bigger reason for this move was the lack of interest among iPhone users. Already the company said its assistant works with more than 1,600 home automation brands and more than 10,000 devices - though "works", as always, is in the ear of the listener. Everybody and their mothers (and a few relatives) are rushing to make their products "smart" by integrating them with either the Assistant or Alexa.

The company said more airlines would be participating soon.
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.
What this means is that if you own a Hopper, you can use it to control smart home appliances, check the weather, and, of course, control the Dish box. You will also have access to the usual set of Google Assistant features. An addition here, though, is that you will be able to link up with Chromecast for more video and TV control. Like, the Sonos One and Sonos Beam speakers will be getting the Assistant. The Anker Roav Bolt is a smart auto charger with far-field microphones and dual-USB ports.
These include Dish's "Hopper" receivers, vehicle adapters from Anker and JBL, connected TVs from Samsung, and a smart display from KitchenAid. Today's update includes new features such as flight check-ins, hotel booking, a new language interpreter mode, and the extension of Assistant on the lock screen to all Android phones.
Google Assistant routines allow you to trigger multiple actions with a single phrase. With this feature, users are able to receive translations for dozens of languages and conduct conversations in real time.

The ToF or Time of Flight technology is based on the time it takes for light to bounce off an object to create a 3D map. Frankly, I think the setup looks ugly and doesn't seem to borrow from the company's elegant industrial design thinking.
