How to Stop/Exit Navigation of google maps

Exit Navigation by using Google Assistant In Google Maps

Mostly in every Android mobile phone, google maps makes its space in it and iPhone users install Google Maps via Appstore. Somehow we all are in need of Maps and this problem that we are facing has been carrying on for some years in Google software and still has not been solved officially.

When we need to go somewhere with which we are not familiar or strange places then we always take the help of Google Maps. However, while driving or in drive mode, we mostly use Google assistance to stay focused and drive carefully. We manually turn on the Google Assistant by calling ‘OK Google’ and it starts to instruct us (like where we are going and towards we have to go) through voice. After arriving at our destination we can simply turn off it by saying “Exit Navigation or Close Navigation”

Further if you are using direction navigation on Maps. An AI assistant usually starts talking to guide you about the direction which is a little bit irritating for some people. So if you don’t need this option, simply turn it off by saying ‘Mute voice guiding’. Later if you want it to turn on, simply say ‘Unmute voice guidance’
