The real-time updates will be given while a user is are on his/her transit journey and the updates will appear in the Google Maps app.
Travelling to a new place will be a lot less stressful as Google is launching a new feature to Google Maps.
The idea here is simple, guiding you with real-time updates while you are on your transit journey. Google Maps will reportedly send live notifications mentioning its time to de-board on the user's phone.
When the feature rolls out, there will likely be a start button at the bottom of the screen when you look up how to go to a destination.
Most importantly, this new update will notify you when to get off your bus or train when you're closer to your stop. Whether this will work on the London underground before 4G arrives below ground, we'll just have to see, however, it would be good for commuters who want live updates on train times.
The report also points out the lock screen notifications are interactive, making it possible to scan through the directions rather than have to enter the app. Rolling out in the next few weeks and months, Google Maps will soon be able to give you live updates when you're in transit.
Google Maps could soon be implementing layers that highlight air quality levels in cities around the world. This will allow commuters to have the peace of mind that their phones will remind them to get off at the right stop, even if they're exhausted or distracted.
The update comes just two weeks after Google announced at its recent event that it was going for two-wheeler customised navigation on Google Maps- under it, two-wheeler drivers will get the fastest route to reach their destination.
