Hence, now is an excellent time for Google to announce new features for its virtual Assistant. After opting-in through your settings, you can ask your Google Assistant to show restaurants nearby, set up and dismiss alarms, schedule reminders and timers without unlocking your phone. Buckle up and hop aboard the Google Assistant Ride!

This is only Google's second year exhibiting at CES.

Discussing the new feature, Google said: "Speaking a different language no longer has to be a barrier to having a good conversation".

Once you have updated your Google Maps, Just say "Hey Google, take me home", to open Google Maps and get help from your Assistant on your journey.

The new feature is aimed at helping the consumers communicate in a dozen languages and will be available on the Google Home devices as well as Assistant-powered Smart Displays.

The most notable change discussed was a new "Interpreter Mode" that promises to translate speech from foreign languages in real-time.

In the surprisingly smooth demonstration, a reporter speaking English was able to carry out a conversation with Google's Italian-speaking exhibitor without any hiccups. But Interpreter Mode is better still, because it allows both people to benefit from Google's translation abilities.

Google has revealed that it is baking the Assistant right in the Google Maps apps on Android and iOS devices.

Finally, Google Assistant is coming to Google Maps.

"This is native integration with Google Assistant itself; it should be a lot more seamless, a lot faster", Lacey said. So, slap on your VR headset and take a ride.

Users will also be able to search for the places they go through during their trip and add a new stop.

In Android, Google Assistant works with messaging systems such as SMS, WhatsApp, Messenger, Hangouts, Viber, Telegram, Android Messages and others. On speakers, it will recite the translation out loud, but on smart displays, it will also show the text on the screen.

Saying "Google, check into my flight" will do the trick, presumably if you've got the flight stored on your calendar.
