Recall about the last time you were stuck in traffic – the times you spent gazing at a long line of red taillights apparently didn’t feel prolific. The Assistant can now assist with navigation in Google Maps, so it’s peaceful to search for places along your route or add a new stop while you’re on the go. And starting to roll out today in the U.S., you can get guidance from the Assistant in Waze on Android phones in English.

Thanks to its community of millions of drivers contributing real-time data every second, Waze helps you beat traffic, while the Assistant lets you play music and podcasts, message your friends and call your family hands-free—without ever leaving the navigation screen. Many of your favourite Waze features, like reporting traffic, pinpointing a pothole or checking for alternate routes, can also be accessed simply by using your voice. 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.
