Google has been especially delayed with carrying out Assistant Driving Mode, which was declared at I/O 2019 yet just made accessible in late 2020. And still, after all that, it was restricted to clients in the US. In any case, that is not true anymore as Google is presently 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 presently 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 illuminate which ones.
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 in the event that you’ve gotten Assistant Driving Mode, open Google Maps and head over to Settings > Navigation Settings > Google Assistant settings. In the event 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 different other Google applications.
