"By hopping aboard the ride, attendees experience how the Assistant can be helpful in the face of life's twists and turns - at home, in the auto, and on-the-go, by following the day in the life of a small family", a Google spokesperson told Business Insider. These include Google Maps, Google Play Store, Gmail and YouTube, but it cannot be ruled out that in the future, others may arrive at this point. It is planning to roll it out later this year.

Google has not revealed many details regarding this latest statistic. Additionally, Android users can use Assistant with SMS, WhatsApp, Messenger, Hangouts, Viber, Telegram, and Android Messages.

Thanks to a report from The Verge, we also have really recent numbers for Alexa. "From day one, we've built the Assistant with one goal in mind: to help you get things done".

Headlined by a new translation feature for the Google Assistant called Interpreter Mode, Google hopes its Assistant can help bridge languages gaps in a smarter and friendlier way. This includes Sony, Hisense, Philips, TCL, Skyworth, Xiaomi, Haier, Changhong and JVC.

Since no other Sonos speakers were designed with voice commands in mind, the speakers themselves won't technically work as Google Assistant devices. These TVs (with a few exceptions) all feature far-field microphones in the remotes, so that you can talk to the Google Assistant without needing to turn down the TV or your music in the room.

Just a day after announcing that Google Assistant is nearly on a billion devices, Google is launching a new toolkit for developers that will help it get Assistant on more devices.

No matter how you look at it, it's going to be a good year for connected devices. Oddly, there was no mention today on when the long-awaited Samsung Galaxy Home smart speaker, which also supports Bixby, will go on sale.
