Google Maps launch special feature

Google Maps has launched “Stay Safer”, an Indian feature that would alert Android users travelling in public vehicles like taxis or auto rickshaws if their drivers deviate more than 0.5km from the suggested route on Google Maps. The users’ phones would buzz with a prominent notification which they would be able to tap on and see where they are compared to the original route. After searching for your destination and getting directions, select the “Stay Safer” and “Get offroute alerts” option.

The company also launched three new public transport features including live train status, to help Map users in 10 of the largest cities in India to see bus travel times from live traffic, get live train status for Indian Railways and get mixed-mode commute suggestions that now combine auto-rickshaw and public transport.
