Google Maps will soon guide you through every step of a mass transit ride, including telling you when it’s time to get off. Once the feature rolls out, you should find a “start” button at the bottom of the screen when you look up how to go to a certain destination. If you select that button, you’ll get live updates on where you are as you walk or as your ride moves, not only within the app, but also on your Android lock screen.
The feature would certainly be helpful to travelers with vision problems for their daily commute and also traveling to a new destination. Simply read it on your lock screen to see where you are (if your GPS and mobile internet are working inside the vehicle, that is) or wait for your phone to tell you that you’ve arrived. The feature will go live “soon,” but make sure to check your app right now — it might have already rolled out to random users for testing.
