Although Google made an announcement about the availability of feature on Android devices, the company did not give any details when it will arrive on specific models.

Google Assistant Connect will allow Google to put its Assistant on the next generation of smart home devices. It comes with support for smart home devices and it will be available for $79 (Rs 5,600 approximately) starting this spring.

For flight confirmation in Gmail, the Assistant will send a notification to the phone as a reminder that check-in is available.

According to Tech Crunch, the goal of its voice-driven AI helper is to get onto devices and offer a better interactive setup to aid consumers. Apart from this, Google Assistant is also coming to smart TVs by Samsung, Sony, Hisense, Philips, TCL, Skyworth, Xiaomi, Haier, Changhong and JVC, and DISH's Hopper family of receivers.
