Google is rolling out a new feature to the Google Assistant that lets you ask it to book you a ride, like an Uber or a Lyft, just using your voice.
Until now, Google Maps users were able to select a destination and then choose Uber, Lyft, or one of several other services to take them somewhere. But it required some poking around Google Maps and typing in your destination.

It's rolling out now where Google supports ride sharing services (and only in English, currently). Here's how you can check to see if it's active and try it:

The feature is rolling out this week, which means you might not be able to use it immediately, but you should be able to give it a test in the coming days.
