The company is embarking on a bold plan to bring Google Assistant to millions of iPhones. For example, you can just say Just say "Hey Google, be my French interpreter" to start Interpreter Mode and get real-time spoken and (on Smart Displays) written translation to aid the conversation.

Google Assistant is about to get smarter with a new Interpreter mode that would help users have a real-time conversation in almost 27 languages. He also highlighted that the Assistant now works in 30 languages and is available in 80 countries, with the number of global active users growing four times year over year. Currently, this feature supports 27 languages, including English, Hindi, Polish, Indonesian, Swedish, Thai, German and Korean. In other words, Google Assistant is winning the platform war on mobile phones but still lags behind Alexa in the smart-home market, per Search Engine Journal. 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.

Lenovo is one of those such brands working to expand the smart home experience.

For Android, Google Assistant will also work on SMS, WhatsApp, Messenger, Hangouts, Viber, Telegram, Android Messages and more. Like, the Sonos One and Sonos Beam speakers will be getting the Assistant. And Todoist, for help keeping track of itineraries with notes and lists in the Google Assistant.
