Trying to report everything while driving can be a monumentally distracting task. 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. However, it took until now for the Assistant to finally work inside Waze. It's only available in the USA and in English for now, and it's unclear if Google aims to expand its availability in future updates.
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 also limited to Android phones, so iOS Waze users are out of luck here.
Just say "Hey Google, report traffic" or "Hey Google, avoid tolls" when navigating with Waze and your Google Assistant will help keep you connected, informed and minimize distractions while you're on the go, so you can keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road.
The Google Assistant is nearly three years old now, and Google acquired Waze way back in 2013.
I assume that Google Assistant support in Waze will expand beyond English and the US but the firm doesn't mention this.
