Google Maps updated for Android, improves public transportation experience

Share

In order to take advantage of these new features, you'll want to make sure your version of Google Maps on Android is up to date.

If you've ever anxious about missing your stop, take heart: Google Maps will help you manage public transit a little better now. The directions will also be able to be scrolled through, just like existing directions you get when following directions while driving, walking or biking.

The update also adds step-by-step navigation, departure times and ETAs for the next time you need to get on a bus or train.

The new feature is now available for Google Maps users on Android. Type your destination, select transit directions, then select your route. But, if you have Google Maps open, it can alert you just in time so you don't miss any critical moments when traveling. The new Google Maps Go app is a part of a progression of lightweight apps that will gradually wind up noticeably accessible for such gadgets. Recently, Google has made it possible to adjust how Assistant gives you directions via Maps, no matter what your mode of transport is.
