See 3 new features in Google Maps
While the common thought may be that people are less likely to use mapping and navigation services within the boundaries of COVID-19, Google is working to make its application more useful and convenient. Implementation Google Maps for three new features, including traffic load.
Google said: “Since the pandemic broke out, we’ve added nearly 250 new features and enhancements to Google Maps to help us adapt to this new normal.”
For example: Google uses aggregate location data to record busy times (which you would like to avoid) in nearly 20 million locations worldwide. Meanwhile, the maps show 50 million daily updates, with reliable data from more than 10,000 local governments, public transport agencies and other organizations.
In September, Google Maps added the COVID-19 layer, with an average of seven days (per 100,000 people) of new cases and showing whether the number of events is going up or down. Google now shows the number of confirmed cases and deaths, with links to local resources.
In the meantime, uploading data to Google Maps will show the status of your transmission lines when you search for directions in real time. This extension reaches bus, train, and subway stations, the first time Google only showed this information to stations, based on users who reviewed the app, as Google allowed the experience to be built with the (live) status tag. Because this information is stored collectively, it may not be available everywhere, but it should work very soon around the world.
Google Maps has become a food distribution site, and Google will show direct shipping and delivery status in the U.S., Canada, Germany, Australia, Brazil, and India based on requests made through the app. Waiting times and shipping costs will also be included, allowing you to quickly reorder. These features are available on Android and iOS devices.
It should be noted that Google has closed the request for trusted location-sharing contacts, saying it would close the app completely on Dec. 1, and had already removed it from the Google Play Store. This amazing move comes 4 years after the app was launched, as the Trusted Contacts app first appeared in late 2016 to share quickly and securely with friends or relatives near a nearby site so you can remotely control or find your location in an emergency.
