    So is this a backend update? I haven't gotten an iOS Google Maps update the past few days.

    I learned that you also need the Google Assistant app installed for this to work.

    Fair dinkum. I may have had the payment part backwards, but I stand by what I said about Google being the best search engine. Many people in this thread were giving Tim heat for allowing it to be the default, which is moronic.

    Anyone have good use cases for this? I tried ‘hey google, please add a stop at a gas station along the way to my destination’ but that didn’t add a stop or even give me options in map (it just gave me a google assistant list of gas stations). Makes me wonder, can this integration do anything useful with maps or is it just a way to ask random assistant questions while using maps
