No More Hustle! Do Google Pay Parking Using Your Voice
This week Google mentioned in a blog post, "There will be no more currency, and there will be no more uncertainty." Simply say "Hey Google, parking status" and "Hey Google, extend parking" when you need to check your parking status or pay for extra parking.
Currently, this feature is currently only accessible to users in the United States. In India, there is no information about availability. Google plans to expand this functionality to additional areas across the globe in the future.
Also, you can use this pay for parking using Google Assistant service only in the ParkMobile street parking zones. It is available in about 400 locations throughout the United States. They have published a map of public parking sites that are included in the program. We believe that in the future; the firm is likely to do agreements with other companies.
