Sonos is about to add a new weapon to its smart speakers that will help make it even more competitive against Apple's HomePod. All you need to do is just say, "Hey Google, check in to my flight". 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.

While putting Assistant into Maps seems a logical next step within the Google ecosystem, the bigger reason for this move was the lack of interest among iPhone users. Some remain exclusive forever, while others are making their way to other smartphones after a while.
