Google Maps is a trusted application, most of us have on our phones. It has really made going to places much simpler. The latest update makes things even simpler as Google Maps gives you live guidance and interactive real-time notifications during your journey.

These real-time updates on the transit journey will make it easier to go to new places where you have never gone before or in the areas which you find confusing. It works the same way as it currently does. You can search in advance for transit directions in Google Maps, but now you’ll have the option to start the journey and then get live updates as you walk or ride on your local buses and trains.

Google Maps will prompt you to get off the bus or the train at the next stop when you are close to your destination. This will ensure that you don’t forget to get off on your stop in an unfamiliar place or have something occupying your mind and you lose track of time.

Another new feature is the notifications on the lock screen. These interactive notifications let you scroll through your entire journey. The live update is expected to go up soon and Google has already started rolling them out to some users, so be sure to check it out when you are on your next journey.
