Google Maps will soon tell you when it's time to get off your train or bus

It's hoped that Google Maps can prevent a few tired warriors and tricked tourists from skipping a stop, then doubling back or perhaps a long, brisk walk with new notification prompts telling users how far along their public transit trip they are.

Google Maps recently introduced the "Two-wheeler mode" under which bikers get the fastest route to reach their destination.

The feature is said to be rolling out "soon" but we don't have anything more concrete regarding timelines.

In order to activate these updates, users will search for transit directions like usual, but then hit a "start" button at the bottom of the screen. As you might expect, this information shows after you've started navigation on Google Maps. A new update is about to come to the app that gives passengers a live update on their journey, perhaps even reminding people to get off.

These will appear in both the app and on Android lock screens, according to TechCrunch. Some may have received the update already so others will definitely follow. Now, Google is looking to launch a new feature which will be providing users live guidance and interactive real-time notifications during their journey.

With the help of this feature, Google Maps will be able to give its users real-time updates during transit by showing these updates on the Android lock screen. As you walk or ride on your local trains and buses, you will get live updates.

Google Maps could soon be implementing layers that highlight air quality levels in cities around the world. However, there's no estimated wait time for the feature's arrival in the Google Maps app.
