Google Maps is one of the most used mobile applications by the technology giant. In any part of the world, it is used by almost anyone, from regular travelers to travelers. In the final year of the pandemic, Google released updates to the Maps app. More tools were delivered to Sydney train stations. More AI-powered features were also promised. More COVID-19 details have been added to travel searches. Green businesses have also been added around you. All of these and more are ready to help you better navigate anywhere in the world.
google maps will continue to provide new tools and features to help anyone navigate and explore the world in the safest way possible. We now live in the ‘new normal’ so there should be some adjustments to help keep the distance on public transport.
Transit directions on Google Maps increased 50% over last year, especially in the United States. More than 10,000 transit agencies based in 100 countries are now benefiting from traffic saturation predictions. With this development and thanks to AI technology, you can know if a line has many open seats or has already reached its maximum capacity. Then you can make a decision whether you want to take the train or wait for another.
This update will be available first in Sydney and New York. Google will test the saturation information live. Data will be provided by Long Island Rail Road and Transport for New South Wales. Hopefully, more cities with more audiences will benefit from this update.
The google maps now also has a Timeline Insights tab. This appears if your Location History is on. You can view the modes of transportation you have used in the past, as well as the distance plus the time you have walked, biked, flown, or driven. The tab also lets you know how much you have spent in different locations.
Feel free to leave more detailed reviews on local businesses you’ve tried. Doing so will help keep a community up to date. Google Maps will receive more updates as we continue to navigate this new normal. We don’t think the pandemic will end anytime soon, so let’s continue to live in the moment and try to prosper.
