All the new features coming to Google Maps

Google Maps will soon tell you when it's time to get off your train or bus

All the new features coming to Google Maps

A new update is about to come to the app that gives passengers a live update on their journey, perhaps even reminding people to get off.

Users would be able to "start" and "end" a trip, during which they could scroll through the details, and receive updates.

The report also points out the lock screen notifications are interactive, making it possible to scan through the directions rather than have to enter the app.

PSG have failed to make it past the quarter-final stage of the Champions League since the arrival of the club's mega-rich Qatari owners.

We are very excited that Google Maps rolled up this update and we hope we shall soon have it in Nepal as well.

It appears the feature will also let users know when the bus or train is approaching their stop. With this new feature, Google Maps can help prevent you from missing your bus or train stop and ending up in a neighboring city 20 miles past where you planned to get off.

For example, if you're looking for a coffee shop in a new neighborhood, you could open Google Maps and look for the nearest orange icon - the color code for Food and Drink places.

Panthers OL Matt Kalil warns Vikings that he's a different guy
To make matters worse, left tackle Riley Reiff had to be carted to the locker room after suffering an ankle injury. The Panthers (9-4) got 103 rushing yards from Jonathan Stewart and Carolina's defense stifled Minnesota's offense.

Google products set to incorporate the new feature include Google Assistant, Google Search, Google Earth, and Android Auto.

The way it works, at least in an early pre-release version, is that users would find a new "Start" button at the bottom of the screen whenever they look up travel directions on an updated Google Maps app, according to Engadget.

The new wait time feature will be supported on almost a million sit-down restaurant listings across the globe and will challenge a number of third-party apps.
