Waze users will now have another way to issue voice commands on the navigation app: the Google Assistant.

For now, it's only rolling out to Android phones in the U.S. But it will let Waze app users ask the navigation app to do things by uttering the prompt phrase: "Hey Google." For instance, say, "Hey Google, report traffic," or "Hey Google, avoid tolls," and the Waze app will respond.

"Many of your favorite Waze features, like reporting traffic, pinpointing a pothole or checking for alternate routes, can also be accessed simply by using your voice," Google said in a Monday blog post.
