Google Maps will now alert users about crowded public transports
Google through its Google Maps will now alert its users about places that are crowded which would include public transports, medical checkpoints, and other important places.
As India limps back to normalcy after a 2-month lockdown, Google announces a feature that would help users maintain social distancing. Lockdown has been lifted in several countries including India amid coronavirus pandemic. However, Google through its Google Maps will now alert its users about places that are crowded which would include public transports, medical checkpoints and other important places. This would help people in avoiding crowded places.
“Getting from A to B can be more complicated these days. Because of COVID-19, it’s increasingly important to know how crowded a train station might be at a particular time or whether the bus is running on a limited schedule.
