Google has been especially delayed with carrying out Assistant Driving Mode, which was reported at I/O 2019 yet just made accessible in late 2020. Even then, it was restricted to clients in the US. However, that is not true anymore as Google is currently making the feature accessible for clients in different nations as well.
The official support page recently expressed that it was just accessible in English in the US. It currently reads that a few features “aren’t available in all languages or countries,” proposing that it’s carrying out to different nations as well — it doesn’t spell out which ones. Notwithstanding, we can affirm that the UK is one of them — one of our readers there got it on his Pixel 5.
In case you’re not mindful of it, Google Assistant Driving Mode is expected to supplant Android Auto’s on-phone mode. It can help you read and send messages, make calls, and control media with your voice so you don’t need to leave the navigation screen.
To check on the off chance that you’ve gotten Assistant Driving Mode, open Google Maps and head over to Settings > Navigation Settings > Google Assistant settings. On the off chance that you have, this should lead you to a new panel for Driving Mode. If not, it’ll open the general Assistant settings screen that you can access from various other Google applications.
Google has at long last revealed insight into which nations the Assistant Driving Mode is carrying out to. At the time of composing, Android clients in English in Australia, Great Britain, Ireland, India, and Singapore ought to have the option to get to the early review.
In case you’re not residing in any of the listed nations and need to give this a shot, you could have a go at changing your phone’s language to English (US). This worked for our own special Rita who as of now lives in Lebanon.
