Google is rolling out a new feature with Google map i.e., on-screen speedometer including speed camera alerts and speed limit indication. It is reported that some of the users can view these features with their map.
Android Police reported that the feature can be turned on and off from the app’s Navigation Settings menu in Settings, after which it will display in the bottom left corner of the app during a car journey.
“It’s a nice addition to the speed limit and trap indicators and means Maps now alerts you when you’re speeding. However, it doesn’t fully work with Android Auto yet, so you’re out of luck if you’re not driving with the amount — the speedometer will show if you’re using the Auto app, though.” Android Police wrote in their article.
The option is not available worldwide for now but it showing up in Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, India, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Sweden, Taiwan, the UK, and the US. which probably means Google is opting for a slow server-side rollout like it’s used to.
However, The feature is just one of many that have trickled into Google Maps after first appearing in the Waze app, which Google bought way back in 2013.
