New Delhi:

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.

Just a week ago, Google Maps got the ‘Two-wheeler’ feature, and now the app is ready for its new feature which will inform the user when to get off a bus or a train while travelling.

This feature is really helpful when a user tends to fall asleep and forgets to de-board on their particular stop.

This new feature will notify a user as and when they are about to reach their destination. Google Maps will reportedly send live notifications mentioning its time to de-board on the user’s phone.

These notifications do not need the app to be opened. Maps will notify even if the user’s phone is locked.

Google Maps currently shows the real-time updated directions when you travel in a bus or train. The new update might be a small one, but is really essential in a person’s journey.

The notifications sent by Google Maps will directly come on your Android lock screen.

Google Maps recently introduced the ‘Two-wheeler mode’ under which bikers get the fastest route to reach their destination. However, this feature is only available for Android users but will soon be available on iOS too.
