Where is safe driving mode?

Answered by Frank Schwing

To access the safe driving mode on your Android device, you can follow these steps:

1. Open the Google Assistant settings: You can do this by either saying “Hey Google, open Assistant settings” or by manually going to the Assistant settings on your device.

2. Tap on the “Transportation” option: Once you are in the Assistant settings, scroll down until you find the “Transportation” section. Tap on it to proceed.

3. Find the “Driving mode” option: Within the Transportation section, you should see the “Driving mode” option. This is the feature that enables the safe driving mode on your device.

4. Enable Driving mode: Tap on the toggle switch next to the “Driving mode” option to turn it on. Once enabled, your device will activate the safe driving mode when it detects that you are driving.

It’s important to note that the exact steps and location of the safe driving mode settings may vary slightly depending on the version of Android and the device you are using. However, the general process should be similar.

When the safe driving mode is activated, your device will automatically limit distractions and provide a simplified interface to help you focus on the road. It may silence incoming notifications, read out messages, and allow you to respond using voice commands.

Personally, I find the safe driving mode to be a valuable feature as it helps me stay focused on driving without getting distracted by notifications or the urge to check my phone. This feature has proven to be particularly helpful during long drives or when navigating unfamiliar routes.

In summary, to access the safe driving mode on your Android device, open the Google Assistant settings, navigate to the Transportation section, find the Driving mode option, and enable it. Stay safe on the road and let your device assist you in minimizing distractions while driving.
