Google Maps Drops Driving Mode: Shifts Focus to Google Assistant

A Change in Navigation Dynamics Sparks Conversations on the Road Ahead

In case you’re not in the loop, the driving mode in Google Maps is all about simplifying things while you’re on the road. It’s like a hands-free way to deal with the app, focusing on giving you the crucial info you need while driving. The map takes center stage, showing your route with clear turn-by-turn directions and real-time traffic updates. All the extra stuff gets tucked away to keep things neat and tidy. Driving mode kicks in automatically when you start navigating in Google Maps, or you can fire it up manually by tapping the little driving wheel icon in the bottom right corner of the app.
