Google Maps Adds Wi-Fi Only Mode And Transit Disruption Notifications

By 09:54 Wed, 04 Aug 2021 Comments

Google has updated the Android version of Google Maps application with two useful recent features.

There is now a Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) only mode that should hold some load off your data plan. The app will still utilize some data but by and large it will restrict itself to just using Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) to download the maps.

The other feature is notifications for transit disruptions. If there are any delays or other changes in schedule of your transit lines, you can choose to acquire notifications for them. This should be useful to those who commute to work everyday using public transport.

The changes are rolling out slowly to everyone. Check the app to see if they are available for you.
