While there's no specific rollout date yet, Assistant will soon be able to notify you when your next flight is ready for check-in, and even handle the check-in directly, without having to open your various airline apps. Google has partnered with chains like Choice Hotels, AccorHotels and InterContinental Hotels Group, as well as travel services such as Priceline, Expedia, Mirai, and Travelclick to offer a wide range of options. The will be rolled out to all Android users in the coming weeks.

Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa will be supported in the 2019 Samsung TVs. "Simply turn on "Gentle Wake Up" and the lights in your bedroom simulate the sunrise 30 minutes before your morning alarm goes off, to help you wake up and feel more energized", Google added. In order to enable the so-called " Pixel lockscreen Assistant" feature, you'll have to opt-in through the phone's settings. And Todoist, for help keeping track of itineraries with notes and lists in the Google Assistant.

The search giant is adding a handful of new features to its Assistant as the company seeks to overcome Amazon for dominance in the connected home device market. The new features include flight check-in, hotel bookings, and expanded locks screen access. By saying, "Hey Google, check in to my flight", the assistant will walk through the steps of checking in. There is no word on when either of the feature will be released for the global consumers.
