Google Maps has a feature called “voice-guided navigation” that provides turn-by-turn spoken instructions while you are driving to your destination. To use this feature, you will need to enable it in the app’s settings. Once enabled, you can start navigation to a destination by saying “Hey Google, navigate to [destination]” or by entering the destination in the app and tapping the “Start” button. The app will then provide voice-guided navigation, including spoken turn-by-turn directions and alerts for things like upcoming turns and traffic. You can also use voice commands to do things like zoom in and out on the map, switch between map views, and more.
Sometimes the default voice by Google Maps when guiding navigation is not suitable for you. You can actually change the voice of this navigation using a device like your smartphone. Here you can change the volume level of the voice, the language used, until you can disable this voice if you find it annoying. In addition, you can test the voice after making settings on Google Maps navigation. To change the voice on Google Maps you can follow the following guidelines.
