How to Create a Shortcut for Driving Mode in Google Assistant

  When we're driving, we can't be distracted even for a second, and cell phones are a huge temptation.  How many times have we seen people drive their cars while checking their devices?  Fortunately, the Google Assistant, one of the most used applications, allows us to create direct access to the driving mode to avoid distractions and accidents.


  Once the shortcut is created, we can make and answer a call, send messages, listen to music, and so on.  We all use our voices to avoid distraction in such an important task where a simple mistake can cost everyone involved.


  Google Assistant can read a web page, and many things can be done thanks to it.  Making life easier for us and making our vehicle travel safer is another of its great virtues.  Let's see a little below how to create a shortcut for driving mode.
