Google Home devices will soon be able to help you have a conversation in different languages. Google is helping change that by deploying Interpreter Mode for Google Assistant - it will support "dozens" of languages when it arrives, including commonly spoken ones like Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, German, and French. Google's virtual assistant has been endowed with a lot of new powers over the a year ago, including making bookings on your behalf and screening spam callers. For hotel booking, you can instruct Assistant to "book the Cambria Hotel in NY on January 12th", for instance, and it will show you pricing options and availability within Assistant, which you can book using Google Pay credentials. The command will be "Hey Google, check in to my flight".
And it's not just limited to regular SMS messages, the features work with popular apps like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Telegram and others. With this new Google Maps integration, drivers can use the Assistant to keep their hands on the wheel. The idea behind the platform is to let product makers put an Assistant experience on their products that utilize Assistant on a linked device without needing all the hardware and software required to build an Assistant-powered device.
