Waze is for many the best GPS ever invented. Now it gets even better with the Google Assistant integration. Unfortunately this integration started only in the US, however it is more than likely that it will be coming to you soon.
With the new Waze update, you won't have to touch your phone anytime you want an application task. Just say "Hey Google …" and describe what you're looking for or the task you want to do.
Waze Google Assistant Features
For example, if you want to report traffic, you just need to say "Hey Google, report traffic" and the assistant will handle the rest. The same applies to speed cameras, police presence or even road accidents.
But the functionality doesn't stop there. If you go somewhere and the path is not the way you want, you can simply say "Hey Google, avoid tolls" and Waze will automatically give you a new route.
Waze is much more detailed than Google Maps
A while ago we made a comparison with Google Maps and Waze. Although, in my view, Google Maps has won, Waze has made serious strides in communicating with the driver.
The only problem with Waze is its battery and data usage. Which is much larger than competitor Maps. Still, both are from Google. That is, it is to be expected that Google Maps and Waze will become increasingly identical in the future. The insertion of the Google Assistant is proof of that.
Once again, this update has only come to the US, but you can imagine that it will not take long to reach UK. By the way, can you imagine having your voice as a travel assistant? Know how to do it in the application in this tutorial.
