Google Maps For IOS Updated With Spoken Traffic Alerts
Google today updated its Google Maps app to version 4.12, adding spoken traffic alerts in navigation mode as well as the ability to easily add new or missing businesses from the app's sidebar.
Spoken traffic alerts will tell users about traffic congestion and incidents on a user's route.
Additionally, users will get traffic descriptions summarizing traffic conditions before they set off on their journey.
The feature is similar to Google-owned Waze's notifications, which also verbally points out traffic congestion, incidents and the location of police in the area.
