Google Maps For iOS Now Speaks Traffic Alerts As You Drive

Google has now added the tasty recipe of voice alerts to the iOS version of Maps. The update comes sequel to a principal refresh of Waze for iOS. Google adds to the iOS edition of Google Maps current via the recent introduction in voice warnings which will add audibility to threats warnings by vocalising them, this could include traffic congestion, that could pose danger to a motorist’s travel time.


Google has unveiled the package of voice alerts on the Android version of its popular mapping app way back in May. At present, iOS users now have the luxury of a word of warning from the app prior to heading out as well as getting voice alerts en route, bringing them to the awareness of any accidents or possible construction as well as any solid hindrance that would probably impinge on their travel time even up to landing them in traffic that’s thoroughly congested.

Google announced the voice alerts prior to last Memorial Day weekend, sporting Google Maps’ capacity to lend a big helping hand to drivers in locating the quickest route and then helping them to juicy information as an imminent warning of an impending doom however slight.


“While you’re on the road, Google Maps will give you a heads up if congestion lies ahead, and how long you’ll be stuck in a jam,” said Google when it introduced the feature back in May. “You’ll also get the option to take alternate routes, including explanations for why one is recommended-whether it’s the fastest or avoids an incident.”

“The new map is easier to read with a cleaner look catered to your drive,” reads the app’s description. “It’s easier to help others on the road with a faster, more visual reporting menu. Reports and alerts are color-coded so you can instantly recognize them on the map. Smart reminders to leave on time for your Calendar events based on traffic conditions and drive times.”
