Google Maps has a brand-new idea to help you relax on your next train ride.
Google Maps has come up with a novel way to help you unwind on your next train travel.
GOOGLE has provided additional details on the next Google Maps update.
Without a doubt, Google Maps is the most used navigation program on the planet. In order to keep its top ranking, Google is always adding new features. Maps’ newest feature promises to make your train ride less stressful and keep you safe before heading back to work.
The new feature, which enhances Google’s existing crowd prediction, is now available to Android and iPhone users worldwide. So, what’s different now? Google, on the other hand, will forecast how packed a train will be and how many seats will be available. In some larger cities, such as New York and Sydney, Google is exploring a more complex version that reveals how busy each carriage is rather than the train as a whole.
The tool, Google believes, will give commuters with additional information by cooperating with over 1,000 different transportation companies in over 100 countries.
Once the feature is available, users will notice a new “Live” signal on the journey details page. The app will also indicate if the train you’re about to board is “busier than usual” or “not too crowded.” This program works in a similar way to Google’s current crowd prediction tool. Users can now view a forecast of how crowded a store or restaurant will be in Google Maps. When checking this, users may also see the current capacity and whether or not the area is busier than usual.
Don’t worry if you can’t see the new features on your phone right now. Although the update is accessible starting today, consumers on other coasts may take some time to obtain it due to the company’s history of staggered rollouts.
Google Maps, which enables these crowd projections, combines user inputs with past trends to predict the present condition within the railway cabin. It’s similar to seasoned commuters figuring out that the 9:00 train is always busier than the 9:12, so they should take the later train–but on their phones.
In a blog post on the upgrade, Google stated, “While people are returning to public transit–safety remains top of mind.” That’s why we’ve increased our transit-crowding estimates… so you can decide whether to board or wait for another train. Because of the epidemic, or because of the “Brinkwire Summary News.”
