Google has revealed the latest update to its virtual assistant which will now allow users to compare prices of ride-hailing services and order a car from within the Google Assistant app.

Before this update, you could ask the Google Assistant to help you book a cab and it would simply divert you into a ride-sharing app on your phone. Now, according to Google, you can say: "Hey Google, book a ride to the Bluebird Café," or "Hey Google, get me a taxi to Denver International Airport," and the app will then present you with a list of popular ride services, their estimated prices and even average wait times.
