As all know, most of the features of Google Maps are available on the Android platform. However, the tech giant has been caring for iOS too by bringing most of the features of Google Maps on this platform. Now, Google has brought a new feature for Google Maps on iOS that was there at only the Android platform.
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.
In a blog post via 9to5Google, Google says that iPhone users will be able to report those crashes, speed traps, and traffic slowdowns now too. To report an incident, you’ll tap a new button under the compass in the driving navigation UI.
One of the best parts of Waze is that it gives a pretty accurate picture of what’s happening on the roads around you so that you can have a better idea of current road conditions. Hopefully, now that both users on both major phone platforms can report what’s going on, and with more detail than before, Google Maps will provide similarly useful information.
