Well, we all have been waiting for the integration of Google Assistant into Google Maps which will make navigation very easy. Earlier this year, at the Google I/O 2018 summit, the tech Giant announced that Assistant was coming to Google Maps and a visually compact and less disruptive version will appear while getting the directions.

With this, the uses can focus more on their driving since they don’t have to look up to the phone’s screen every time as Google will take care of all the work.

By activating the Google Assistant by saying “Ok Google” or even pressing the colored mic on the display the user will be able to play any song of their choice or send a text message to someone without having to leave the navigation mode. To get this feature, the user might require to update their Google Maps as well as the Google Assistant feature. During the daytime, the Google Assistant icon and animation will be displayed in a White backdrop while at the night it will use the night mode with a darker background.
