Jul 17, 2017 13:07 IST

Google Maps in July 2017 launched a new feature in its App for Android users where users can see a graph on the best time to travel.

• Presently available in the United States and Britain, the new travel time graph has bars for half an hour before and a few hours after the current time.

• There’s also a dotted line just above the bars with a time indicated.

• This will help users to know how to get somewhere or how long the trip should take along with green, yellow, or red highlights to indicate current traffic conditions.

• The new feature pops up when you input directions.

• The bar graph will also show an estimate of how long it would have taken a half hour earlier and how long it will take in the next few hours.
