Google Maps Help With Journey Times

Google Maps Help With Journey TimesGoogle Maps Help With Journey Times

Google Maps can now tell you when its best to leave for your destination with alternative journey times.  The new feature is only available for Maps users on Android, and it pops up when you input directions, GSM Arena wrote on Sunday. Along with showing the usual estimated time and distance, a new bar graph will appear, showing the relative time it will take your trip now and an estimate of both how long it would have taken a half hour earlier and how long it will take in the next few hours. The new time estimate feature is rolling out to Google Maps users on Android now, although there is no word as to when iOS users will be able to see it. In 2016, Google launched its traffic feature across the globe that reads traffic density by how many smartphones are on a road at any time.  The service is very useful in a city like Tehran where near permanent traffic causes hours of delays for commuters.
