Google Assistant Can Book Rides and Compare Prices of Ride Sharing Services
October 05, 2018 / Matt Southern
Google Assistant is now capable of booking rides from many of the most popular ride-sharing services. More ride-sharing services will be added in the future, Google says. Users can hail a ride from any device that with Google Assistant, whether it’s an Android phone, iPhone, Google Home, or any other smart speaker. Hailing a ride is as simple as saying, “Hey Google, book a ride to Pearson International Airport.”
Google Assistant will then provide a list of ride services available in the area, which will allow users to compare estimated prices and wait times. Users can then tap on the preferred ride-sharing service to complete the booking. Alternatively, users can be more specific if they already know which ride-sharing service they want to use.
