Google Maps introduces two-wheeler mode in India

Google has launched "two-wheeler mode" for its map as an India-first feature.

The two-wheeler mode will be launched in more countries in coming months.

Google maps will now have additional support for two-wheelers. India is the fourth largest motorcycle riding nation in the world (after Vietnam, Indonesia, Taiwan), so it makes sense that they're one of the first pilots for this. "When we build better products for India, we ultimately build better products for everyone".

Back Up, Curse Of Osiris Released]
We don't know everything there is to know about the game's second major expansion, and $35 is a lot to ask for any game upgrade. After the installation of Curse of Osiris , Destiny 2 will take up 44 GB of storage on PS4 and Xbox One and 68 GB on PC.

The Indian market has always been a major area of focus for Google, and the company has released some India-centric features in its Maps earlier as well. That is a good thing for regular auto drivers, too, as it could potentially help alleviate congestion on roads, cutting down on transit times for everyone.

Tech giant, Google has officially updated Google Maps in the country with new features that will help two-wheelers while commuting through the city. Google is using machine learning through which Google Maps plots routes that are suited for riders which includes alleys, streets and shortcuts that are usually not accessible to cars and other larger vehicles. The new feature has started rolling-out in Google Maps today and should be available on all devices. It also gives information about the parking scenario at their destination, a handy feature that was previously seen in the auto mode. The route map, too, has been completely redesigned for two wheeler mode, with more landmarks, as people tend to learn about the routes using landmarks before starting a journey. For example, Google Maps calculated an estimated 256KM trip would take roughly around forty minutes less time on a two-wheeler as compared to if taken via a big vehicle.
