This new Google Maps widget will give you an overview of the traffic around


The latest beta version of Google Maps for Android got a handy new widget that gives you an overview of the traffic conditions in your area. The new feature is available in
version 9.39 of the app where you can find a new 1×1 shortcut you can add to your home screen.

When user opens the widget, he gets a bird’s-eye view on the traffic conditions around. It will show you a map with traffic information in all directions and a quick assessment of the overall traffic situation around. I think it’s an awesome and handy improvement. I use Google Maps as my primary daily traffic info app. Although I know a route between my office and home, I use it everyday to choose the fastest one. I don’t need to check the exact route, I just need to know which streets to avoid.

In order to add it to your phone you act like with any other widget. Touch and hold on the home screen, select Widgets, and then choose Traffic 1×1 from the Maps section. Cool feature Google!
