Google is just launching new features and incorporating new features to Google Maps in recent weeks. The application of maps of the company allows for a few days to add events and also has a new filter to see the latest photographs that have been uploaded from a certain place to the platform.
“Google Maps allows to report accidents since last December.”
They are just two of the latest developments, as the service owned by Google has released a few more in the last month. And now there is another that is quite useful: the ability to warn of traffic jams or situations of slow traffic, which allows other users to be warned of what they will find on the road.
So far, Google Maps allowed users to indicate traffic accidents (although only since last December), police checks and even the position of the radars, both fixed and mobile. However, until now it was not possible to indicate, manually, when a traffic jam was occurring or when the circulation is slower than usual.
Google Maps now adds this functionality, which, for example, is common in other mapping systems. For example, in Waze, for years it is possible to indicate delays and slow traffic so that other drivers are aware.
The novelty now reaches Google Maps. In the first place it will do it to the version of the Android app, for obvious reasons, being who its developer is. The company affirms that this week the tool will be available for all users, although what has not been pointed out is whether the new functionality for users of mobile devices with the iOS operating system will also be available.
