Whether you're prone to a little nap on your morning commute, or are exploring a new city and not sure when to disembark, this forthcoming Google Maps update is great news.
Google is about to launch a small but useful update to Google Maps that will give you live guidance and interactive real-time notifications during your journey. This feature will be extremely helpful in case users fall asleep during a journey or when users are new to a place and don't know much about it.
The notifications might also be displayed on the lock screen of your Android device, the report added, saying the notifications might be interactive, so you could look up the stops that are coming.
It's not certain when Google will roll out these changes to the Maps app for iOS and Android apps.
Google Maps is about to solve an age-old public transport problem
Google Maps now gives detailed transit directions with the process generally involving keeping track of progress along the route. When you're about to start a new trip, you enter your destination, and press start, as one usually does when using the app for directions. It will reportedly provide extra details about the journey including updates as they walk or ride on local buses or trains.
The goal is Google Maps to tell you important things like when to get off the bus and if your train is near your final stop, so you have time to prepare.
With this update, the same transit notifications become a bit more like using for walking, biking & driving, said the report.
Brisk Monday ahead with snow chances on the rise tonight
Breezy northwesterly winds certainly added a chill to the air giving wind chills or feel-like temperatures in the 20's. Highs on Tuesday afternoon will be in the mid teens, and lows will be around 1° early Wednesday morning.
