New Google Maps update adds more information to your location
By Adeel Inam
Google Maps is not what it used to be as it has evolved a lot in a lot of ways to help its users navigate better. The new traffic information and turn by turn directions has always made its users reach the exact destination without wondering off somewhere else. Google Maps till now could only tell its users about some information regarding their destination and an estimated time it would take them to get there but that is going to change as with the new update Google is adding a lot more into this process.
The new update to Google Maps will let users see the information on the place that they want to go to including the current weather and the time of that location. This would help users a lot as they would already know the weather of the location they are going to be at so for instance if it’s raining they can take an umbrella with them just to be safe or take any other precautionary measures. Google maps would also mention some fun facts about the chosen location as well.
With the new update users can just tell Google Maps to "show traffic" or "hide traffic" which can be useful as well, as drivers while driving won’t have to mess with their smartphone and can just command Google Maps to hide or show the traffic. Google Maps would also give you several options depending on the traffic of a location in order to re-route you to get at your location the fastest way you can.
The new update of Google Maps changes its version to Google Maps 9.1 and for users who wants to get their hands on the new update right away can follow the source link and install it manually through the APK file.
