Updated: Added link. Corrected ML model size number.

Google's new Pixel phones coming later this year will have a new version of the Google Assistant that brings Google's speech-recognition system onto the phone itself for up to ten times faster response times, as well as offline capability. Google has shrunk its machine-learning model for speech recognition down to just 80 MB, enabling it to fit on phones. Google is also adding several features to Assistant, such as semi-automated transactions on select web sites, such as reserving a rental car. Google is also adding a new driving mode to Assistant that combines Maps navigation with audio features in a voice-driven interface that minimizes distractions.
