Enhancements Made to Google Maps

Enhancements Made to Google Maps

Google Maps is a neat service that helps users navigate during their travels, but more upgrades are being released all the time to augment their experiences. Some of the most recent updates have provided additional functionality that can provide users with even more ways to use Google Maps--particularly in regard to actually making it to their destination on time and in style.

Arriving On Time
The Commute tab in Google Maps can show the user information about their preferred route, and it can even update itself if any disruptions occur during the travel time. Google Maps can then show other routes free of disruptions that might be helpful for the user. All these features combine to give the user the best experience possible when trying to stay true to a timetable.

Assuming you have two possible routes to your destination--one going through an urban area and another going around the outside--Google Maps could suggest which option is the most efficient based on data collected. If the city traffic is locked up, or if there is an accident, it can indicate which path would be better for your needs.

If public transportation is more your thing, Google has included an occupancy for trains and buses in some regions, including updates for the routes. If you want to grab something quick to eat before getting on the train, Google Maps can tell you if there is enough time to do so.

Music Makes a Commute Better
Google Maps also has built-in support for popular music services like Spotify, Google Play Music, and Apple Music. This lets users improve the quality of their commute without jumping between apps.
