New features are constantly being included in the popular navigation app Google Maps , so that users do not have to face trouble during the journey.
In the app, users are given information about the current traffic conditions and alternate routes in addition to the routes.
Soon with the help of Google Maps, you will be able to save money while reducing the cost on fuel. Let us know how this will happen and which feature will have to be used for this.
The best route will be shown according to the car engine
A new report has revealed that Maps users will soon be given the option to choose the engine type of their car .
That is, if they have a petrol, diesel, hybrid or electric car, then they will be able to choose it before deciding the route.
Based on the car engine type, Google Maps will show them the best route, so that the fuel cost during the journey can be kept to a minimum.
That’s why the new Google Maps feature is important
Google ‘s navigation app will be able to decide which route will be the cheapest to go based on the user’s car engine type.
Users can also get the option to choose between the lowest cost and the fastest route. The new filter can be very beneficial in a situation when fuel prices are increasing rapidly.
You must be aware, ‘modes of transport’ like car, two-wheeler and foot are already available in Google Maps.
The Google Maps app was first launched in the US in 2005. After this it was upgraded and launched in the UK in the year 2006. The service of Google Maps in India was started in the year 2008.
Fuel cost depends on many factors
How much fuel will be spent during the journey depends on factors like driving mode, road conditions and traffic on it. Taking care of such aspects, Google can give the right and cheapest option to the users.
In some countries, Maps has also started providing information about charging stations for electric cars and electric bikes. It is possible that with new efforts, Google can show the best routes to electric vehicles (EVs).
Will have to wait for wide rollout
How long the search engine company brings the new feature to all the users, it has to be seen.
It has been told in the report that the new feature is currently in the testing phase and based on the feedback received from the users, changes and improvements will be made in it.
There is also a possibility that it may not be rolled out in case the final results do not match the expectations of the users. The company has not yet shared the official rollout timeline.
Found a feature related to air quality
Recently a new feature has been included in Google Maps, with which information related to air quality will be available.
Now Google Maps will show how good or bad the air quality is in your area and what is the status of air pollution.
