Google Updates Maps With Traffic Alerts
Google has updated its maps with a traffic alerts feature that brings explanations as to why various routes will be faster.
The new feature also alerts users about a blockage or traffic jam ahead, along with alternate routes to each destination.
According to a TechCrunch report, the new update for Google Maps will now tell users how long they will have to wait if they stay on a path where a traffic jam has popped up.
Google also used last year’s data to determine the most popular getaway spots for big hubs like San Francisco and New York.
