Motorcycle Mode for Google Maps in India is a Go

Google Maps will reportedly send live notifications mentioning its time to de-board on the user's phone.

Whether you're prone to a little nap on your morning commute, or are exploring a new city and not sure when to disembark, this forthcoming Google Maps update is great news.

While Google has not provided an exact release date for the new feature, the company could be testing the update via random roll-outs as of this time.

The feature is said to be rolling out "soon" but we don't have anything more concrete regarding timelines.

Google Maps will soon tell you when it's time to get off your train or bus

Google Maps now shows the real-time updated directions when you travel in a bus or train. The feature also includes updates about schedules, delays among other things for trips on metros and public buses in the city.

The way it works, at least in an early pre-release version, is that users would find a new "Start" button at the bottom of the screen whenever they look up travel directions on an updated Google Maps app, according to Engadget. After you have done this, the app will start giving you live updates as you walk or ride on your local buses and trains.

The report said that users will be reminded to get off a bus or a train when he or she gets close to a stop- a useful feature when one is travelling somewhere new. Is this a function you'd like to see in Google Maps? The app will tell you if you're near your destination. Google Maps recently introduced the motorcycle mode, keeping the large number of people traveling by motorcycles in mind.

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.
