Google Allows You To Pay For Parking Using Voice: How It Works



Google new Wallet app

Tech giant Google rolls out a new feature that will allow users to pay for parking using their voice through a partnership with ParkMobile. The goal is to help drivers eliminate the pain points of paying at the meter when it is too cold, a meeting runs longer than expected, or the cup holder does not have enough quarters.

This partnership is the latest example of Google’s push into transportation, including adding biking and ride-hailing in Google Maps, developing a digital key, and working with automakers to integrate its Android operating system in vehicles.

Android users can now pay for parking using their voice and for this, one just needs to say “Hey Google, pay for parking.”

This is possible with the help of Google Assistant and Google Pay. While the digital assistant already has a lot of functionality, the latest one could be more useful to quickly pay for parking.

“No more coins, no more confusion. And when you need to check your parking status or pay for more parking, just say, “Hey Google, parking status” and “Hey Google, extend parking,” the company said in a blog post.

Once you ask Google Assistant to pay for parking, you then need to follow the on-screen instructions to finish the process of payment. One will also be able to check the parking status or extend parking. However, the feature is not available in India and is for those who are based in the US. The search giant has partnered with ParkMobile to make it easier for users to pay for parking, which has limited reach.

Google says the feature is only “available in ParkMobile street parking zones in over 400 cities in the US.” But, Google is expected to partner with more companies in the future. The feature should be available to all the users in the coming weeks.

Apart from this, one will also find a new screen time widget that will quickly help offer a glimpse of the three apps you use the most each day. One just needs to tap on the widget to open Digital Wellbeing, where you’ll find some ways to improve your digital habits, such as daily timers for your apps, Focus and Bedtime modes.
