Never miss your stop again with the new Google Maps update

Google Maps will soon track your public transit journey in real time

To activate the feature, users input their destination (as usual) and hit a new "start" button on the bottom of the screen.

This time, it's getting a minor update albeit a useful one for the commuters. Some may have received the update already so others will definitely follow. Users have started seeing the motorcycle mode option in their Google Maps application in addition to the auto, walking and train options that were previously available. An unconfirmed information said that the updates will also be displayed on Android lock screen, Tech Crunch reported.

The report claims that the live updates will remind you when to get off your bus or train.

The firm has made a number of changes recently to make its service more user friendly.

While Google has not provided an exact release date for the new feature, the company could be testing the update via random roll-outs as of this time.

Google products set to incorporate the new feature include Google Assistant, Google Search, Google Earth, and Android Auto.

Google Maps could soon be implementing layers that highlight air quality levels in cities around the world.

"While Google Maps always did a good job of giving you detailed transit directions (though it's often nowhere as good and useful as CityMapper's more detailed directions), the process generally involved keeping track of your own progress along the route", he wrote.
