Google Maps now shows a speedometer alongside speed limit warnings (Latest version)

Google Maps was updated late last month to display speed limits and speed drops in over 40 markets. Now it appears that the Silicon Valley company is rolling out a live speedometer (via Android Police).

The attribute is not standard. As soon as the update hits your phone, the speedometer can be activated in the Navigation settings menu.

Unfortunately, the speedometer doesn't just look on Android Auto. We'll probably have to wait a little longer to make his way to the platform.

The speedometer feature slowly looks to users all over the world. Make sure you have the latest version of Google Maps installed from the Play Store.

New "For You" tab was launched on Google Maps

June 26, 2018: Google is updating maps with a few new features that it hopes will encourage users to come home and try new things. The first is a completely new tab in the Google Maps application called "For You." Here, users will show recommendations of places and businesses in their area, especially those that are brand new or based on Google's data. While the new page itself is a nice new feature if you don't have one thing to do what you do one night, Google & # 39; has gone one step further and applied its machine learning smarts with & # 39; a complimentary feature called "Your Contest." Your Contest gives users a percentage rating against For You recommendations based on their own personal data and what Google knows about the locations in your area.
