Google Maps gets real-time transit journey notifications

Google Maps

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. There is no word when Google Maps will start to carry this new feature.

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. A "start" button will then appear at the bottom of the screen, detailing your journey. The real-time updates will be given while the user is on his or her transit journey and the updates will appear on the Google Maps app.

What's especially interesting is that this functionality will also give you notifications when you are approaching a stop. Whether this will work on the London underground before 4G arrives below ground, we'll just have to see, however, it would be good for commuters who want live updates on train times.

Search engine Google, which has a range of significant apps like Google Maps and Google Play Music, is ready to update its Google Maps service with new features.
