REPLYING
Many ping users have asked us to add replying using voice to text. We have chosen not to do so yet, for these important reasons:

1. It’s unsafe. Here is a study which shows that voice to text is as dangerous as manually texting: tti.tamu.edu/featured-project/voice-to-text-driver-distraction-study/

2. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) guidelines specifically advise against this.

3. The technology is far from 100%. (There is no way to correct mistakes while you are driving.)

4. You can still use your Google Assistant to reply.
