Climate and Maps

The Google Assistant is fully integrated with Waze and Google Maps, so you can ask numerous questions about itineraries, times and even weather conditions.

Google Assistant can learn more about you, in addition to the data that is linked to your Google Account or company services, such as home and age. You can say commands like «what’s my boyfriend’s name?», «What’s my dad’s name?». Whenever Google doesn’t have these answers, the Assistant will ask you to teach them. The most interesting thing is that you can also ask the Wizard questions about him, like «when were you born?», «Do you like Siri?», «Do you think I’m cute?» and so on.

Remembering that it is possible to activate the Wizard with the command «Ok, Google» by going to your settings. Otherwise, you can press for a few seconds the physical or virtual start button on your Android.
