With Google Maps, Navigation Just Became Easier in 12 More Indian Cities

Googel provides real time traffic updates in Google maps for twelve more cities

Adding on to the select cities which have access to real time traffic updates on maps, Google has added 12 more cities which will now be able to utilize the information. 

Google Maps has become the go-to place for all direction related queries for many of us today. From finding directions to a restaurant, to looking for that obscure short route, Google helps us out with it all. The real time traffic updates available in select cities has also been a boon for many commuters.

Adding on to this, the real time traffic updates have now been made available in 12 more cities. The cities include Kolkata, Lucknow, Indore, Bhopal, Ludhiana, Visakhapatnam, Nagpur, Kochi, Madurai, Thiruvananthapuram, Coimbatore and Surat.

Google Director for Program Management, Suren Ruhela, said – “We hope that this new real-time traffic information for 12 cities and all national highways will help drivers across the country find the best routes to their destinations.”

The maps’ location and traffic services are available on the desktop website and also on the mobile app. Including the new additions, the total number of cities with traffic updates on Google maps has come up to 34.

Lately, the services of Google have been catering more to the Indian customers as they also introduced a Hindi, and an Indian accented English tool for the location services in the past year.
