Users can now report crashes, speed traps on Google Maps on iOS

With Maps, Google helps billions of users daily to have a safe commute from point A to B in the easiest way possible. Earlier this year, in the Android operating system Google added a few tools that reflect real-time contributions from the users so you can make informed decisions when you’re behind the wheel.

Google has now added the ability for people to report crashes, speed traps, and traffic slowdowns right from their iPhone. One of the most popular features on Android has now been expanded to iOS.

Google is also introducing the ability to report four new types of incidents — construction, lane closures, disabled vehicles, and objects on the road (like debris), thus you can quickly know if you’ll encounter one of these potential obstructions on your ride, and plan accordingly. To report an incident, simply tap on the + sign and then on “Add a report.”

Both the features will be rolled globally on Android and iOS this week.

Soon Google will also bring the Dark Mode update to the Maps app. Available on both Android and iOS users, consumers who wish to use the Dark Mode need to have iOS 11 or higher and Android 10 on their phones. And for the Dark Mode feature in Maps, Google has already started testing this feature. While navigating via Maps, battery drain comes as a critical issue, Google’s Dark Mode will let you save on battery too as a whole of the interface will be transformed into black and white.
