Google maps undergo huge update – Android users can access and report about the same

The users will now need to tap the Add a report option by tapping the upward arrow from the bottom of the screen or by pressing the report button simply from the navigation screen.

The flurry of updates continue to be rolled out by Google Maps and now the latest update will allow users to report accidents and identify multiple speed traps while navigating to their destinations. This new update was inspired by navigation app Waze, was spotted last year and work on the same has been going on ever since.

Google now has rolled it out for users all across the globe. Presently, this feature is available only for Android users, but it will be soon made available to iPhones in the near future. If users on Reddit are anything to go by, there is a feature which reports speed traps and accidents during navigating. Also, there is a dedicated Add a report function which brings the options to report speed traps and accidents while using the navigation on Google Maps.

The users will now need to tap the Add a report option by tapping the upward arrow from the bottom of the screen or by pressing the report button simply from the navigation screen. This report button is located next to the audio and magnifying glass buttons.

Now, once the Add a report option is tapped, the user can directly report about a crash or a speed trap to Google which has been encountered on the route. Google Maps will then show people how many such reports have been recorded which will help them decide whether to take the route or look for a different option.

Although, there has been any official announcement made by Google about the update so far. However, on navigating the Android phones one can easily access the aforementioned features.

“If a new icon appeared in the Maps for you recently, don’t worry, it’s not another messaging service from Google. Rather, it’s a shortcut for opening up the new reporting feature for speed traps and accidents.

“Similar to Waze, Google Maps is adding the ability for users to take part in reporting accidents they see along their route, and speed traps,” 9to5Google reported late on Wednesday.

I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog

The problem is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
I am very happy that I stumbled across this during my
hunt for something concerning this.
