Google Assistant Gets the Ability to Book Cabs From Uber, Ola

Also, you can also request a cab ride from a preferred cab service provider. This feature is also now available on the Google Assistant on iPhones along with Google Home, or any smart speaker with the Assistant.

With the new feature, you will be able to select from a wide variety of ride-hailing services including Uber, Lyft, Grab, and Ola using your Android device, iPhone, Google Home or any Assistant-enabled smart speaker.

Google has been lately launching a whole lot of updates and it seems that it is unlikely to stop anytime soon.

Google Assistant is undeniably one of the best voice-based digital assistants that we have available today.

It is important to note that this particular feature has always been implemented by other digital assistants like Siri and Alexa.

It seems that the new feature will be helpful for those who want to find a service with the shortest wait time or the lowest price.

Now Google is upping the ante by integrating rideshare and taxi services directly into the Assistant. The complete list of the operators has not been released yet. Then it's up to you to choose which auto service you want.

Google's new update for the voice assistance app also brings some handy feature for the developers. Well, you could install apps from Lyft, Uber and their competitors, and check out the pricing on each app as you go back and forth between them. Google clarified that the feature will be available first in English and any country where one of Google's supported ride service partners operate.

Service and product comparisons are a natural extension for users of Google search, with this news showing how Google can leverage its digital assistant and voice technology to potentially create a more convenient experience for consumers.
