Traffic Signals, Stop Signs, and Toll Prices will Soon be Shown on Google Maps

After much deliberation, Google has finally chosen to add a long-overdue feature to Google Maps for Android, which should not only make your travels better, but also more secure.

As is often the case, Google continues to provide techniques for avoiding tolls by altering your route choices, but those who don’t mind paying money to get to their destination a bit quicker will now be able to get a preview of the whole cost before getting on the road for the first time.

Toll charges along your journey will be shown on Google Maps starting this month, based on information obtained directly from municipal organizations in your region. In contrast, variables such as the precise time of day and the payment method will be taken into consideration to provide you with the most value for your money.

The company will first roll out this update to smartphone customers in the United States, Indonesia, India, and Japan, with plans to expand to more countries in the future.

Additional features will be added to Google Maps to assist with navigation and bring it up to par with the competition, according to the company. The biggest additions here are traffic lights and stop signs, which are similar to those that Apple added to its Maps app with iOS 13, but that isn’t all there is to it.

The maps are currently being updated with building outlines and points of interest, as well as specific road data such as lengths, forms, medians, and islands in some cities.
