Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones

However, Google has not given details when it will be available on Android devices.

Arguably the more significant discounts are for Amazon and Google's smart home devices.

Unfortunately, Sonos isn't yet committing to a date for its Google Assistant roll-out. Sign up today to get wireless news and updates delivered to your inbox and read on the go. The Assistant will show you the pricing, availability and the works, which you can book using Google Pay. For security reasons, it's available through opt-in, meaning you've got to tick the box in settings.

According to TechCrunch, once you add this feature to the lock screen, you can open your handset (and by extension you) to malicious parties. This new integration builds on the DISH voice remote's existing ability to control the TV experience, including navigation, search and content selection.

Perhaps the most interesting is Google Assistant Connect, an initiative similar to Amazon's Alexa Connect Kit that makes it easier for third-party manufacturers to create Assistant-powered gadgets without needing to be connected to Google's cloud. Hotel bookings are also limited to just U.S. right now.

"There's a lot to keep track of when you're traveling, from your flight confirmation number to the address of your hotel".

Google Assistant can now help you check-in to your flight, and save and retrieve your boarding pass.

Google Assistant is coming to a range of new devices, including Instant Pot's Smart WiFi Programmable Pressure Cooker, Sub Zero's refrigerator and wine store, Wolf E-Series and M-Series ovens, Cove dishwashers and the U by Moen shower. The service is first launching on United Airlines' domestic flights, so it'll probably be a while until the feature comes to Blighty. Here are the most notable changes that'll help you in your daily interaction with Google Assistant.

Unfortunately, the American tech giant has not yet discussed plans to add the feature to the Google Assistant on smartphones. To complete the booking transaction, users will use Google Pay credentials. While Android users typically have the Assistant preloaded on their devices, it is going to be a bigger deal for iOS devices, which have a massive Maps install base.
