Google Assistant is one of the innovative ideas by Google, and is simply designed ‘to help people get things done’. The Google Assistant App continues to bring people together, to connect as one within the App even if we don’t speak the same language.

Google has introduced the new feature to the app called ‘Interpreter Mode’ where hotel guests can communicate with concierge speaking different languages. Google partnered with systems integrators Volara and SONIFI in an effort to eliminate the language barrier between companies and customers.

  1. Webpage reading – This is a feature where you will be able to ask Google to read an article for you, e.g. “Hey Google, read this page”, also Google mentioned it wants to make the page auto-scroll as it reads the article/page.
