During the debut of the Google Pixel 3 smartphone past year, the American tech giant also announced the Google Home Hub that attempts to deliver the same Assistant functionality but has a screen to display contextual information.
Google also showed off the new Lenovo Smart Clock, which can set alarms based on your daily habits or calendar appointments, and wake you with a gentle light.
However, Android phones will still make up the majority of Google Assistant's install base.
Discussing the new feature, Google said: "Speaking a different language no longer has to be a barrier to having a good conversation".
Google Home speakers and Smart Displays will soon have access to a new Google Assistant ability called Interpreter Mode.
With most of these changes rolling out in the next few weeks the increasing functionality of Google Assistant will be hard to keep track of but well worth trying. If you're in a foreign county or meeting with a person who does not speak the same language as you, the Google Assistant can be used as a translator, or more so as an interpreter in order to get real-time translations of words and sentences as and when you speak in the form of voice output as well as text on screen to aid the conversation. But Interpreter Mode is better still, because it allows both people to benefit from Google's translation abilities. This functionality is already available to Pixel users but will be rolling out to all Android devices in the "next few weeks".
It rolled out new integrations with Google Maps, where users can operate the app hands-free with just their voice. Voice notifications also keep you up to speed on incoming messages and reminders while you drive. The company has also created a small world-styled ride at its booth.
Google has been demoing the feature at the American show and is branding the function as a way to have conversation with people from other nationalities, even if you are not fluent in their spoken language. I've always been quite happy with the Google Home and Google Home mini speakers I have around my house.
The company will announce more details about Assistant Connect later this year.
