Apple has been snatching up original content and is expected to launch its service later this year. AirPlay 2 support will be available on Samsung Smart TVs in 190 countries worldwide.

Google pointed out that its Assistant works with over 1,600 home automation brands and over 10,000 devices.

Auto accessories like the Anker Roav Bolt and the JBL Link Drive will feature the Google Assistant, allowing you to connect your phone to your vehicle system.

Google Assistant helps with travel: Soon, Google Assistant on your phone will be able to check in to your flight, retrieve your boarding pass, and book a room with select partners including Choice Hotels, AccorHotels, InterContinental Hotels Group, Priceline, Expedia, Mirai and Travelclick.

How often do you use Google Assistant? The feature to check flight details will be first available for domestic flights in the USA with the United Airlines.

With this feature, which will be rolled out over the next few weeks on Google Home devices and Smart Displays, one can just tell the Google Assistant "Hey Google, be my Japanese interpreter", and it would function as one. Once the feature is enabled, Google Assistant will respond to you even when your Android phone is locked. This means you can ask the assistant to show restaurants nearby, set up and dismiss alarms, schedule reminders and timers without unlocking your phone.
