How will it work?

In order to make it work, the user will just have to say, “Hey Google, pay for parking” once they’ve parked. The user can then follow the prompts from Google Assistant to pay from their smartphone. And when the user needs to check their parking status or pay for more parking, they can just say “Hey Google, parking status” and “Hey Google, extend parking.” Also Read - Google announces new features for Android Auto including split-screen mode

Will it work in India?

For the time being, this new feature is limited to the United States, specifically for ParkMobile street parking zones. Google claims it is available in over 400 cities in the US. Google has tremendous reach and it could end up partnering with more parking services.

Currently, there’s no dearth of easy payment options in India. Many providers such as Park+ will also allow users to pay for parking using their Fastag account. Then there’s UPI, with numerous app options such as Paytm, PhonePe, and even Google Pay.
