With new update, Google Map will Now Tell You the Best Time to Hit the Road.

The nameless feature is rolling out to the Google Maps mobile app, and it lets you know how long your trip will take if you leave now, or in a few hours' time. We cant travel to new places without its help. Google Maps displays a schematic according to prevalent and past traffic conditions.

Their latest is quite an innovative update from its basic mapping emphasis.


Google, earlier in the year, had also launched a new feature in Maps app, which allowed users to lock a parking location and also add information such as the floor and slot number of a mall to easily navigate back to the parking slot. Not only does it tell you how to get somewhere but also when is the best time to make the journey. When you've tapped in your start point and destination and hit the Directions button, before you choose to start your journey, tap Route Info instead. When users ask for estimated time and distance, a new bar graph appear which shows the time it will take to reach the destination. It is highlighted in green, yellow or red to indicate the traffic conditions. Apart from this drawback, it is a positive step to plan journey efficiently.

The feature has already been rolled out to Android users while iOS users will have to wait for an unknown span of time to use the feature.
