Google has always updated it Maps with new features, making your life simpler and your routes easier to navigate. Google Maps will now make your bus or train ride a lot less stressful as the app will guide and assist you through each and every step of your journey. Believe it or not but it will also tell you when to get off. The rumoured feature will apparently bring a new “start” button to the bottom of the screen when you look up how to go to a certain destination.
Tapping on the “start” button will provide you with live updates on where you are while on a ride. It will display the details not only within the app but also on the lock screen of your device, making it easier to keep a track of. This is a really cool feature and helps in enhancing the overall experience of Google Maps. While this isn’t exactly a crucial feature, it may just be that for you, depending on the scenario. If you’re a tourist, in a new city or even a new country, this could be the miracle you had been waiting for.
If you want to check if your app has already received this feature as part of a testing period, make sure that you’re using the latest version of Google Maps. If you haven’t received it, hold on tight as the feature will go live very soon. Is this something you see yourself using? Let us know by dropping a comment in the section below!
