Google announced its rollout of real Assistant integration into Google Maps, though it was spotted in testingĀ late last year, andĀ announced at I/O.

Enhanced Functionality & Usage

From asking to play music, read/reply to messages, sharing Maps’ ETA, and even add new stops on your way.

Tapping the mic icon in navigation mode brings up an Assistant’s “listening” animation. (Tapping the icon in the normal Maps view still brings up the old TTS dialog, and it remains to be seen if that will change).

In its announcement for the new feature, Google reminds us that the Assistant works with SMS, WhatsApp, Messenger, Hangouts, Viber, Telegram, Android Messages, and other messaging apps.
