Google is preparing an interesting feature to be added to the coming Google Maps update.
This feature will give you live guidance and interactive real-time notifications during your journey.
The idea behind this feature is to give you real-time updates while you are on transit and it will appear on your Android lock screen.
To get started enjoying this feature, you first of all search for your transit directions in Google Maps as usual.
You tap a “start” button at the bottom the screen with the details about your transit journey and then get live updates as you walk or ride on your local buses and trains.
Although the full details behind this feature is fuzzy but from our understanding, Google Maps will remind you to get off your bus or train when you get close to your stop.
This feature will be very useful when you’re the type that falls asleep easily or you are traveling to somewhere you’ve not been to before.
With this update, the new transit notifications become a bit more like using Maps for walking, biking and driving.
We expect this update to go live soon — and Google may already be testing it outside of its trusted tester community.
