Drivers can now use Google Assistant to control Waze

Drivers can now use Google Assistant to control Waze

The Assistant starts rolling out in Waze on Monday in America on Android phones.

Waze is a second-top navigation app in the United States with over 110 Million active users.

Additionally, you can use the Google Assistant to access your favorite Waze app features, by simply saying hey Google report traffic, you can report traffic jams, incidents, and many others while driving and without the need to touch your smartphone. Back in 2013, Google brought this world's largest community based Global Positioning System navigation app. While you could already use Google's virtual assistant with Google Maps to change your destination, check your ETA or add a stop to your route while you're driving, Waze users up to now had to pull over to fiddle with their phone, or multitask and risk an accident.

Waze is a popular Navigation app with a number of advanced features to help users with their queries. All these advanced features will be integrated directly with Google Assistant.

Social media, former Spurs players react to Tony Parker's retirement
Spears . "I'm going to retire". "Tony Parker obviously has had an awesome career", Popovich told reporters on a conference call. Parker did win four championships in San Antonio , and an NBA Finals MVP in 2007.


Additionally, Google Maps is also getting fresh high-quality traffic information in several countries. For instance, say, "Hey Google, report traffic", or "Hey Google, avoid tolls", and the Waze app will respond. You can now control the Waze app directly via your voice commands. You can see the command in action below.

Google wants to make public transport safer for people and is therefore adding a new feature that will display a warning if your cab steers off its route.

The latter is the case here, at least technically-Google Assistant arrived in Google Maps earlier this year, and is now sitting shotgun in Waze, albeit only for Android at the moment, and only in the US. No word on iOS availability.
