Google Maps to Give Real-Time Notifications Soon during Transit Journeys
The objective of the update is to give an individual real-time alert when he/she is on their transit journey. This update would come in the Google Maps application and would most significantly appear on the Android lock screen.
As per the understanding, Google Maps would also be reminding one to get off the bus or train upon getting closer to the target. This would be beneficial especially when one is travelling somewhere new or sleepy. The notifications would be appearing on the locked screen which is again something novel. The most attractive feature is that the update is interactive, so one can scroll right via the journey’s steps.
