Google Assistant is going on a road trip. This way, hands stay on the wheel, but Waze's renowned crowd-sourced information will be as fleshed out as ever.

No longer. Google has announced that Google Assistant is now available in its Waze navigation app. Google will be able to do numerous same things that it can do in Maps, including checking the traffic and changing your route. You can launch music, send messages to friends, or call people, but you can also have the Assistant report traffic or help you avoid tolls while navigating.

Luckily, Google appears to be testing a new feature in Google Maps that will warn you if your driver is veering too far off the route they should likely be on.

Xbox Elite Wireless controller Series 2 makes a long awaited debut
Stay in the game for longer with up to 40 hours of rechargeable battery life and refined components that are built to last. There's a total of 30 new features on the next-gen Elite controller, and it's looking very promising.


All the usual Assistant functionality is present, but Google has baked in a few Waze-specific voice commands as well.

You have reason to celebrate, if you're a Waze user and have been patiently waiting for this moment - but only if you're in the United States and have an Android phone and its language is set to English. In addition to the common Assistant feature, you can also access some common Waze features, like reporting traffic, pinpointing a pothole or checking for alternate routes, using your voice. Other countries and languages will unfortunately have to wait.
