Google today announced that it is adding Google Assistant to Waze app on Android phones. With Google Assistant support, you will be able to call someone, message people, play music and more, all without leaving the navigation screen through your voice. 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.

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.

This feature is now rolling out to English language users in the US.
