Google Maps adding reporting features to Android, iOS


These real-time reporting features were popularized by the navigation app Waze, which is owned by Google.

Waze has a devoted user base because it can sometimes give drivers a better picture of the road conditions that may affect the drive. Navigation apps like Google Maps previously did not identify road conditions that could affect traffic, such as speed traps.

Android users had already been able to report crashes, speed traps and traffic slowdowns right on the app. However, these features were previously unavailable to iOS users.

A global update rolling out to users this week will bring this functionality to both platforms, according to a Google blog post.

Google is also adding the ability to report construction, lane closures, disabled vehicles and objects such as debris on the road.
