Google Maps updated to tell best time to leave and travel By Rei Padla

Though the data provided by Google Maps is not precise, as it gives a rough estimate of the ideal travelling time, it is useful when you know your travel plan in advance.

With new updates every now and then, Google Maps serves in the most advanced way possible.

The new feature that is available for Android users of Google Maps shows a time graph depicting the best time to travel between two location along with giving the directions to travel from their current location to their destination. This latest feature is an innovative update from point of view of its basic mapping technique. If you take a closer look at the app, there's also a dotted line just above the bars with a time indicated. When users ask for estimated time and distance, a new bar graph appear which shows the time it will take to reach the destination.

Google Maps gives massive update to its users

This new feature appears to be live for all users, at least on the Android version of Google Maps.

Google Maps has been displaying color-coded traffic info for a while now, painting the most congested areas in your city in red during rush hour, for instance, but it has just now become so confident in its traffic jam telling abilities, that the app is going into the prediction business.

First spotted by Android Police, this new Maps feature is something that nearly everyone can find value in.
