How to Set Home or Work Location in Google Assistant on iPhone/iPad

Despite having some restrictions, Google Assistant has stood up to the task during my test on iOS devices. Many of you may have already taken it for a spin and got a fair amount of idea about its functionality. But, do you know that you can set home and work location in Google Assistant on your iPhone to ask it for traffic updates and directions?

Once you have added a location, you can ask the Assistant to quickly let you know the latest traffic updates for that place. It would help you easily avoid getting stuck in jam-packed traffic and also save plenty of valuable time.

Wrap up:

Google Assistant is really smart and able to answer queries and carry out the assigned task with ease. As an iPhone user, I’m very glad about its arrival on iOS. It’s now in direct competition with Siri on iOS devices. I believe this cut-throat competition will not just help users but also make both these top-notch virtual assistants perform better. What’s your take on it?
