Waze Gets Google Assistant

Waze Gets Google Assistant”

But that doesn't mean Waze is getting overlooked, as the company just announced a brand new feature for Waze, one that could further improve your navigation experience: Google Assistant.

Over the past few years, Google has been adding a ton of features to Google Maps that make its other navigation app, Waze, so popular. This way, hands stay on the wheel, but Waze's renowned crowd-sourced information will be as fleshed out as ever. Until that happens, you can enter your destination in the Google Maps app and question your cab driver every time the app reroutes you.

"Hey, Google, play country music".

According to a media report, Google Maps is testing a new feature that would send users an alert if their taxi strays 500 meters off route. In addition to the usual Assistant commands, you can also perform actions such as reporting accidents or ask to avoid tolls on your route - all without having to touch your phone.

When you are traveling in a foreign destination or even going to a new restaurant in your home city, Google Maps can be an indispensable tool when it comes to figuring out how to get around. It's likely that support for other markets and languages, as well as support for iPhone, will be available down the road.
