Google Maps has added numerous features over last couple of months to make it one of the most use application for everyone. While the map has contained estimated time for different means of travelling for a long time, Google Map for Android has added a new feature that will give users who use public transportation step by step direction so that they don’t miss a stop.
Talking about the latest addition, Sucheta Kulkarni, Technical Lead, Google Maps said, “Traveling on a bus or train is the time for you to do your best music-listening, news-reading, and social-media scrolling … as long as you don’t miss your stop. A new feature on Google Maps for Android keeps you on track with departure times, ETAs and a notification that tell you when to transfer or get off your bus or train. And you can track your progress along the way just like you can in driving, walking or biking directions.”
“To check out the new feature, head into Google Maps. Type your destination, select transit directions, then choose your preferred route. Tap the ‘Start’ button to get on your way (and you won’t miss your stop this time).”
While people who are living in an area won’t find the latest feature particularly useful, it can be extremely useful for those who aren’t regular in the area.
