Google Assistant on Maps will allow users to do things like search for places when they en route, add a stop to their route, reply to text messages, play music, share their ETA with family and friends, etc. all with their voice.

Google has revealed that it is baking the Assistant right in the Google Maps apps on Android and iOS devices. The Assistant will show you the pricing, availability and the works, which you can book using Google Pay. Google is helping change that by deploying Interpreter Mode for Google Assistant - it will support "dozens" of languages when it arrives, including commonly spoken ones like Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, German, and French. The assistant will also allow Android and iOS users to check their flight simply by saying: "OK Google, check-in on my flight".

Google may be expanding the powers of its digital assistant for home devices and automotive accessories, but it hasn't forgotten about the smartphone.
