New helpful functions have been added to Google Maps

Google continues to work on Google Maps as the app evolves from an app that will get you from point “A” to point “B” safely and quickly, to one that will not only get you to point “B”, but you too shows where to go, eat, and more when you get to point “B”. Today, Google announced some new features for Maps designed to help users manage some of the travel pain, be it the daily commute to the office, a vacation, or just a trip to the local supermarket to stock up on.

New Google Maps features include one that reports how crowded your train, subway, or bus is.

Among the new features for Google Maps is one that will be useful for commuters and others. If you rely on public transit for most of your trips, now is the time to explore the countryside and see how crowded your subway, bus, or train will be. This is important if you hate getting crushed in a subway car with sweaty, irritable commuters.

If Google Maps tells you that you have to expect a narrow journey, you can always wait for the next subway car, bus or train so that you can enjoy some space and perhaps most of all peace and quiet on your journey. The information is calculated using AI for machine learning and will soon be expanded to more than 10,000 transport companies in 100 countries worldwide.

In New York and Sydney, Google is testing the release of this information for the individual car levels in trains. This allows Google Maps users to choose where to stand on the platform in order to find the least crowded part of the train.

With new flavors of COVID like Delta and the deadly lambda versions keeping the pandemic alive, Google knows that knowing the latest news about COVID-19 is still important for people. The COVID layer on Google Maps provides information about what is happening in your area regarding COVID, including restrictions you need to know and local resources you may find helpful.

Google suggests that before heading to your destination, go to Google Maps, find your destination, and scroll down to the business profile to see how busy the place is right now. This is a great way to adjust your plans if your target is raided. With some companies, you can make an appointment using Google Maps. All you have to do is search for the store, check availability, and reserve your time. Use the app’s Saved tab to make changes and manage your appointments.

Pay contactless for parking spaces or public transport directly via Google Maps Map

With Google Maps, you can quickly look back to plan ahead. All Android users can use the Trips tab to revisit past trips. Google advises that you can export this information and share your past trips with others.

The company profile also shows a location’s operating hours, current COVID-19 security precautions, trending dishes, and reviews. Speaking of dishes, tapping prompts on Google Maps allows you to share information for any restaurant in the US, including the average price range of the place or whether you ate or took the meal home to eat.

Finally, Google Maps enables users to pay for things like parking on the street or public transport directly from the app. For the former, enter the meter number and then click Pay & Refill to make contactless payment. When you arrive on public transit, your phone will display an option to make a payment that you can tap to initiate.
