Google Maps is getting an ingenious new feature that we never saw coming

  Google Maps is getting an ingenious new feature that we never saw coming In its never-ending quest to make Google Maps as useful as possible, Google keeps adding features to its popular navigation app, including functionality you might not necessarily associate with a mapping application. That’s precisely the case for the following feature, which can be very helpful in all sorts of situations. It’s also the kind of functionality we never knew we needed, or saw coming. Google has yet to unveil the new Lighting layer that’s coming to Maps, but an xda-developers teardown of Maps v10.31.0 beta might have spoiled the surprise. The purpose of the feature is to highlight streets that are brightly lit in a specific location.

Google Maps is one of those apps that pretty much everyone uses regularly, and yet it still hides a ton of awesome functionality that you’ve probably never come across. It makes sense, of course, since it’s an app that most people don’t spend a lot of time poking around in. You open it, you search for your destination, you navigate there, and then you close the app once you arrive. If you do start poking around in Google Maps though, you’ll find that it’s a terrific app for so much more than just navigation. There’s a treasure trove of functionality hiding in Google Maps, with features that can potentially make your life so much easier. Of course, these great features obviously can only make your life easier if you know they exist — and that’s why we try to share new features as they’re added to Google Maps, as well as some existing features that you might not know about.

If you’re an iPhone user with Google Maps installed on your phone, you’re probably well aware that Google’s wildly popular mapping app is still better than Apple’s built-in Maps app in so many ways. What you might not be aware of, however, is that there are some excellent Google Maps features you can access on your iPhone without even opening the app.

  iOS devices get incognito mode for Google Maps Google Maps users with an iOS device are finally getting their hands on a tool that mobile Android owners have had for months: incognito mode. Android users have had this tool for months now, and soon, they will be gaining another Maps privacy feature for which iOS users will have to wait.

Apple introduces new features into every version of iOS and the iPhone , but these new features and settings are not always well documented. This video goes over some of the best features hidden away deep into the settings where you might have never known they even exist, and most of them

So many iPhone users forget all about the widget page on their devices. Truth be told, however, it can be incredibly useful. All you need to do to access it is swipe right while on your home screen, lock screen, or notifications screen. You’ll find a series of widgets on that page that provide shortcuts as well as zero-touch access to real-time information. And if you have Google Maps installed on your iPhone, you can scroll to the bottom, tap the “Edit” button, and you’ll see this in your list of available widgets:

The five widgets at the top of that list are all available to you automatically when you install Google Maps, and you probably didn’t even know they were there. What’s more, they offer quick access to some terrific functionality that can potentially make your life so much easier.

Google Directions

The first widget on the list is the Google Directions widget, and it’s also the most basic widget available. That said, it’s the one Google Maps widget that I personally use more than any others. Instead of opening the Google Maps app to the default screen and fumbling around to start your journey, tap the Google Directions widget to go directly to the navigation screen with your current location already set as the start point. Just type in your destination and you’re done.

One of the Google Maps features you can’t use right now just launched in more markets

  One of the Google Maps features you can’t use right now just launched in more markets Google Maps is one of the best navigation apps, but not all of its features are available in every market where the app can be downloaded. That’s partly because Google rolls out new features in stages, so users in some countries might not get access to some Maps features as fast as others. One other reason is that some Google Maps features are meant to cater to only certain markets. Google on Tuesday expanded the availability of one such feature to more markets, but most people still aren’t going to be able to use it.

Google Maps is finally out for iOS 6 devices like the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and iPhone 5 . It's better than ever with street-view, public transit, and even turn-by-turn navigation. There are a handful of tips, tricks, and hidden gestures you should know about. In this video we cover them all.

There are alot of hidden features in your Android phone, that you may not know about, but this features might make your mobile experience a lot more fun. But you don ’ t have to with your Android. Simply search “find my phone” on Google and Google will find it for you . If you own more than one

Google Local Guides

Next on the list of Google Maps iOS widgets is the Google Local Guides widget. It’ll show the address of your current location along with a thumbnail taken from Google Street View, and you can tap it to open your location in Google Maps. If you tap the little arrow in the top-right corner, however, the widget will expand to reveal your reviewer account along with nearby places you can review. You love tapping on a restaurant or another type of business and seeing helpful reviews, so why not help other people by reviewing establishments that you’ve visited?

Google Traffic

After the Google Directions widget, this is my second-favorite iPhone widget that Google Maps offers. A quick glance shows you your current location on a small map with the famous green, yellow, and red lines indicating traffic in the surrounding area. You’ll also see a brief description of the nearby traffic conditions — something like “moderate traffic in your area” — and you can tap the widget to open the Google Maps app.

Google Transit Departures

If you commute to and from work or school, the Google Transit Departures widget is going to be your new best friend. With a quick glance, you can see the next three buses due to arrive at a nearby stop, and there’s a second tab that shows the three next trains due to arrive. You’ll also see a note next to each bus or train that shows you exactly how many minutes it will be before it arrives.

Google Travel Times

Last but certainly not least, the Google Travel Times widget is another widget with the potential to be a commuter’s best friend. A quick glance will show you exactly how long it’ll take to get from your current location to home and to work, and you can add or remove any other destinations you want. For example, I can see that it would take me nearly an hour and a half to get to BGR’s New York offices right now in traffic, so clearly I made the right decision to work from home today.
