All you need to do to check-in is say "Hey Google, check in to my flight", and Assistant will take care of the rest.
Google Assistant might be pretty much a standard option for Android phones, but Google found another way to extend its reach.
Google is making a lot of interesting announcements at CES this year, mainly with regards to the Google Assistant. The list of supported languages hasn't been provided yet, but gradually most widely spoken languages should be available in interpreter mode.
The feature is also one of the best reasons yet to invest in a smart display, like the Google Home Hub.
The concept is similar to Google's Pixel Buds, the $159 ear buds Google launched in 2017 that can provide real-time translations in your ears. Once checked in, you can get your boarding pass right in Assistant's interface, then continue on your way to an overbooked flight where you'll undoubtedly be forcibly removed from the plane, resulting in what could be a very lucrative settlement.
As well, Google is piloting the new feature at Dream Downtown in New York City and Hyatt Regency in San Francisco.
Additionally, and still within the travel theme, Google is rolling out Interpreter Mode over the next few weeks to Google Home and Smart Display devices.
