The Google Assistant is now available in Waze. The company announced that from now on in the U.S., users can get help from the Assistant in Waze on Android phones in English.
Waze helps users beat traffic, thanks to its community of millions of drivers contributing real-time data every second, while the Assistant lets one play music and podcasts, message your friends and call your family hands-free—without ever leaving the navigation screen.
Many Waze features, like reporting traffic, pinpointing a pothole or checking for alternate routes, can also be accessed simply by using voice. Users can just say “Hey Google, report traffic” or “Hey Google, avoid tolls” when navigating with Waze and Google Assistant will help keep connected, informed and minimize distractions while one is on the go. Voice commands in the car help minimize distractions so you can focus on the road.
The company has said it will continue making the driving experience even better with help from the Google Assistant.
