Google Assistant Will Now Let You Hail a Car Just by Asking

Google Assistant Will Now Let You Hail a Car Just by Asking”

Google Assistant will then send you a list of the different ride-share services in your area along with the estimated cost for each one, and a wait time. This feature is also now available on the Google Assistant on iPhones along with Google Home, or any smart speaker with the Assistant.

One of the largest IT Tech Giant company, Google yesterday has announced that the Google Assistant is now getting the ability to book cabs across ride-hailing services which includes the Uber, Ola, Lyft, Grab, Go-Jek, and many much more.

That can be done by saying something like, "Hey Google, book a Lyft to Whole Foods". Google is expected to add the support for more regions and languages gradually.

Google Assistant is undeniably one of the best voice-based digital assistants that we have available today. Google said that this new feature will be activated on Thursday. This feature will put all the services or app in sync with the Google Assistant for developers to easily sell their digital goods.

Now Google is upping the ante by integrating rideshare and taxi services directly into the Assistant.

Alternatively, users can be more specific if they already know which ride-sharing service they want to use. Google has yet to confirm the complete list of services that support its new feature. If you have a preference, you can simply ask Google Assistant to "book a Lyft/Uber (or the name of your preferred rise-share service) to the Disney Store". Tapping on an option will take you right into Uber or Lyft to show you pricing and exact wait times for drivers.

Google has recently confirmed that the company is also rolling out an update that will redesign Google Assistant's user interface.
