Google begins official testing for Maps Incognito Mode

  Google begins official testing for Maps Incognito Mode Back in May at Google I/O 2019, the company promised that Chrome's Incognito Mode will expand to Maps for Android; on Wednesday, about four months after the original announcement, testing for the feature has finally begun. As first reported by Android Police on Wednesday, Google has begun testing the Google Maps Incognito Mode feature first announced in May at this year's I/O 2019. As with the Incognito Modes available on Chrome and YouTube, Incognito Mode for Maps would "prevent your search queries and real-time tracked location from being recorded onto your Google account.

You no longer need an Android phone to report collisions and other traffic trouble in Google Maps. Google has brought road incident reporting to iOS, letting you flag problems without turning to an app like Waze. Whichever platform you use, Google is also expanding the range of reportable incidents to include construction, disabled cars, lane closures and objects on the road. You'll see both iOS support and the expanded categories roll out this week.

There are some treats in store if you're a Google One subscriber, too. People on "select" plans can get as much as 10 percent in Google Store credit when they buy a device or accessory from the shop. And if you were only thinking about One, buying a Pixel 4 will give you a three-month trial for the entry-level plan with 100GB of storage, upgraded support and Pro Sessions to make the most of your phone. This won't make up for the end to free full-quality photo storage, but it will help you decide if it's worth paying for that perk.
