Google Maps' New Feature Will Change The Way We Commute Forever

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

The real-time updates will be given while a user is are on his/her transit journey and the updates will appear in the Google Maps app. Finding new locations no matter where you are is not a problem since Google Maps has came around. This small but useful update will guide you through every step and provide interactive real-time notifications during your journey.

Once the feature arrives, users will be able to search transit directions like they usually do, and indicate when they want to "start" a trip.

It will also notify you when your bus or train is nearing your stop. An unconfirmed information said that the updates will also be displayed on Android lock screen, Tech Crunch reported. This feature could prove to be a life saver for those traveling in unfamiliar cities, or for those who just like to doze off in their commute home. Is this a function you'd like to see in Google Maps?

Commuting definitely isn't a fun experience, and it's easy to miss a stop or get lost if you're exhausted or haven't been somewhere before, but Google's latest Maps update aims to fix this.
