If you’re one of the millions of Canadians who’s used Google Maps for directions, a feature called traffic alerts has been one of its most popular features.
Now, Google has announced that it’s adding the ability to view traffic alerts from your phone, too.
In a blog post, the company says the feature will be available for Android phones starting today.
You’ll need an active Google account to enable the feature, though it will be accessible from the app.
Here’s what Google said about traffic alerts: “The ability to see traffic alerts on your Android device will be an important part of Google Maps and its future.
As the technology evolves, traffic alerts will continue to be a powerful part of navigation for all Android users.
We’re excited to make this feature available on Android.”
You’ll also be able to use traffic alerts to make calls, take public transportation, or even send text messages.
Google Maps users can find traffic alerts in the map at the top of the screen.
The feature is still in beta, so you’ll have to be on an unlocked phone to use it.
It’s also possible to disable traffic alerts, but this feature is only available for a limited time.
Google says the update will come to other apps as well.
If you do want to use the feature in the future, you’ll need to sign in with a Google account.
You can also turn off traffic alerts at any time by going to Settings > Location.
Traffic alerts will still work even if you have multiple devices with the same Google account, so there’s no need to worry about keeping all your devices in sync.
You should also make sure to enable your notifications, as the feature is currently only available on a limited number of Android phones.
Here are the features you’ll be able use with traffic alerts.
You won’t be able see traffic warnings on your phone or on any other app if you’re using a Google-branded phone.
The Google app itself will still show you the warnings for directions and directions to other cities, but traffic alerts are disabled if you don’t use the app to take public transit.
The map on your Google mobile device will show you traffic alerts for the closest road or other route.
If your phone’s camera is turned on, you can zoom in and out and view the alerts.
There will also be traffic alerts showing you nearby intersections, as well as road closures.
Google also says you’ll get a notification when the app’s settings are updated to display the new alerts, and that you’ll receive a notification if you change the location of the app or remove a location.
You may also be surprised to learn that Google has added a notification to the top navigation bar that lets you know that you’ve been using the app for a while and that traffic alerts have been disabled.
You still have the option to turn off or enable traffic alerts if you want.
