Just as we see in all the new features that debut on Google Maps, this one is also user friendly and pretty useful. To use the feature, users just need to fire up Google Maps app and select their mode of transport, after that Google takes care of the rest. It will offer real-time updates while the user is walking or riding. The best part of the drill is that users not required to keep the Google Maps open for receiving updates. It will show updates in the notifications even on the lock screen to keep the user in the loop.

To sum it all, Google has just made it easier for us to travel in public transit without worrying about the stop. For now, Google has not revealed when it is going to make the feature live, but Tech Crunch notes that the company may have rolled out test updates.
