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.

For those who couldn't make it to Vegas, Google has provided you with a 360-degree virtual tour of the ride.

Google Assistant will soon be able to automatically check users into flights and reply to text messages from user voice commands, the technology giant has announced.

The device - specifically engineered for automobiles - plugs into a 12V accessory port (cigarette lighter), allowing users to call upon Google Assistant without interacting with their phone. It can also answer personal queries like traffic updates to work or calendar updates.

We're still holding out hope that Sonos will go further with its adoption of the Google Assistant than it has with Alexa, however. The biggest, without a doubt, has to be the introduction of realtime translation for its Assistant via the "Interpreter Mode". At participating Hyatt hotels, Interpreter Mode will enable guests and colleagues that speak different languages to communicate via spoken and written translations of their own languages on a Google Home Hub.

"From the time they wake up to getting their news, daily agenda meetings and tasks, to entertainment for the evening and setting alarms, Google is effectively inserting themselves into every aspect of people's lives at home, work and in transit", he told TechNewsWorld.

In a test with United for domestic flights, Google Assistant will soon be able to check US -based travelers for their flights. You just need to say, "Hey Google, check in to my flight"- all will be taken care of.

If you know which hotel you want to stay, you can book a room using the Google Assistant with partners like Choice Hotels, AccorHotels, InterContinental Hotels Group, Priceline, Expedia, Mirai and Travelclick - an Amadeus company. While Alexa support has already been added, fans of Google Assistant have been left waiting. What's more, the Assistant will even auto-punctuate your messages now, so you don't have to dictate punctuation marks as well.
