According to XDA developers, the company's first announced Google assistant driving model in 2019 has begun to appear on some Android devices. About two weeks ago, users first reported seeing a new navigation interface in Google maps that looked a little different from what Google showed at last year's I / O Developers Conference.
It is not clear whether the new model will be introduced as part of the test or will be available to all users. Mishaal Rahman of XDA said he saw new driving modes on Google pixel 4, ASUS zenfone 7 Pro and LG velvet and speculated that the new model would replace the Android auto app on smartphones.
Whether the new model will include all the features described when Google first launched the driving model is unclear, but it can be used on any Android phone with Assistant, using "Hey Google,Let's drive" voice prompts ," A driver-related activity and other personalized advice will pop up, which will provide information entertainment for drivers who do not have touch-screen displays.
Even on devices that enable the new mode, voice prompts do not seem to work. To see if your device has assistant driving mode, open Google Maps, from the navigation settings menu, select "Google Assistant Settings ".
Because it's the weekend, Google has not yet made any response to the launch of this feature.
