Google Maps now gives real-time notifications, live guidance

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

Google Maps is making public transit easier by telling you when to get off your train/bus

Google hasn't dropped any hints about when the Maps update might go live, but it's expected to roll out soon. And these updates may appear on your Android screen, along with the Google Maps app.

To make use of this feature, you will have to search for your destination in the Google Maps app like you do normally, after which you will need to start your journey by pressing the "Start" button at the bottom of the screen with the details about your transit journey. These interactive notifications let you scroll through your entire journey. So as you travel on your local buses and trains, you'll get live updates on how the journey is progressing and where you actually are. Just the flawless feature for a traveler that knows little or nothing about his destination.

The update comes just two weeks after Google announced at its recent event that it was going for two-wheeler customised navigation on Google Maps- under it, two-wheeler drivers will get the fastest route to reach their destination.

The new update, according to TechCrunch, will soon be released and is already being tested by Google.
