Google Maps App Update

November 12, 2015

Google Map IconGoogle Maps has released an iPhone update to its popular app that includes voice notifications, meaning that the app will deliver audible alerts on upcoming congestion and accidents. Android has had these features for awhile, so those with iOS devices are finally experiencing the app's full feature set. Another welcome addition is delay times on congested routes. Previously, the map only showed red for congested routes but didn't offer any insight into how much time this particular delay could be. By offering the amount of delay time created by the congestion, the app now gives a new piece of information in the battle against traffic-related delays. Learn more here.
