Google Maps added new features like speed traps and speed limits in more than 40 countries

Google is adding brand new features for its navigation app and Waze. The company declared that they are rolling out the capabilities like speed cameras and speed limits to the users of Google map in more than 40 different countries. An expansion of these navigation apps was launched in very few portions of the market.

Google gave a confirmation to TechCrunch about the list of the countries who are supporting this initiative. The name of those countries are U.S, U.K, India, Australia, Mexico, Canada, Bosnia, Andorra, Japan, Japan, Russia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Herzegovina, Greece, Finland, Estonia, Czechia, Jordan, Italy, Israel, Iceland, Hungary, Malta, Lithuania, Latvia, Kuwait, Netherlands, Namibia, Morocco, Portugal, Poland, Oman, Norway, Saudi Arabia, Romania, Qatar, Spain, Serbia, Slovakia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Tunisia and Sweden.

Google was not that rapid to install the best key feature of Waze into the navigation app named Google Map. It preferred google map as a big platform to help the masses to find the accurate place and the most vital was to find the businesses which were nearby.

Now the app is changing

Two weeks ago, Google had rolled out this feature to more countries. iOS and Android, both are taking place on this rollout. However, only Android users will only have permission to report about stationary and speed cameras. But iOS, as well as android both, can have the updates, while they are driving.

Speed traps will be visible on the roads as icons and the speed limit appears in the app corner.

The new update will ask the user for permission about the functionality which is available on that on Waze. But you should not care about that because the Waze (the way they select the roots and their interfaces) is a little bit complex as you are not used to it.

There were some confusions about the alerts. If the alerts would be seen when Google fails to officially come with the expansion of features. The confusion was a factor that the masses are noticing the changes as the roll out is taking place in different countries.

Waze has some issues with the alerts of speed. But Waze is considered as the best navigation application according to the crowdsource report because it has a few unique features like crashes, police ahead, gas prices, obstacles on the path like red light cameras and debris, cars are pulled over on the roadside and many more.

We know that the navigation system named google maps has a merge of reviews from the users and authoritative feeds. It helps to know about the position of the speed cameras.

Apple Watch Owners Will Be Able to Delete Built-in Apps from Their watchOS 6

Pre-installed apps are part of smartphone life. There is no doubt that some of these apps to add value to your life but not all of them may be useful to you. Apple does provide its customers with certain utility apps but not all of them may find it valuable. This is true even in the case of Apple watches. But that is going to be changed soon with the launch of Apple’s watchOS 6. It will allow users to uninstall even built-in apps.

It’s been almost three years that Apple has allowed its users to remove some of the built-in apps from their iPhones. While some may have interest in accessing the stock apps, others may appreciate having a calculator. Apple is soon going to provide the same experience even with their watches.

As pointed out by TechCrunch, the clue comes from the appearance of certain watchOS-only apps on the Apple app store. This indicates that users will be able to install them whenever they want. This also suggests that they will be able to remove it according to their wish. All you need to do is press and hold the apps and then hit the X to delete it.

However, not all the in-built apps can be removed. Apps such as radio, timer, and walkie talkie will remain. You can even delete the ECG app which is considered to be an important app. other important apps such as heart rate and messages will also stay. These apps are there to provide you with a lovely Apple watch experience.

This may be a small improvement made by Apple but users are definitely liking it as they can get more control over what they want. Also, they will be able to free up space on their devices.

The app has been designed so that users can work even offline. Other than that, they can also view their upcoming to-do tasks, see flagged emails and share-to-do lists with colleagues and friends. As of now, the app has not been completely integrated with Microsoft Planner. However, the needful will be done soon. If you are using Microsoft To-Do app on android, ios, Windows or on the web, you can sign into your account and gain access to all your tasks right away.

If you are a former user of Wunderlist, this is no doubt good news for you. Wunderlist was bought off by Microsoft only to be discontinued and replace it with their own productivity tool.

Google Soon Going To Introduce Next-Gen Texting On Android Platform

Google Soon Going To Introduce Next-Gen Texting On Android Platform

The delay of Google’s RCS chat on the Android platform can be blamed on the carriers. The basis of next-gen texting depends on networks supporting one at a time. Android users in the UK and France will be offered RCS services by Google later in June. The company will provide them with the option to opt-in through the messaging app of the platform.

Instead of making use of a central server, Android messages will ping each participant in a chat in order to check if they support RCS. In case, you support it, you will get read receipts, high-quality media and many other benefits offered by the technology. Although Google does send messages from its servers this more of a decentralized approach and therefore, it doesn’t need any carrier support.

However, RCS does come with a few drawbacks. It is not an end-to-end encrypted system and thus, it is vulnerable to intruders reading your messages. It is also dependent on your number and therefore, you won’t be able to use it on non-phone devices. Also, it will require temporary attached files such as IMSI and phone number. However, the company has stated that they are soon going to find a solution. Also, messages will not disappear when you switch to some other phone that doesn’t have RCS.

The company has not decided on a date to introduce the app to other countries yet. Not just that but even Apple have not shown any interest in supporting the RCS system. Therefore, we don’t know how long it’s going to take before RCS is introduced to us. With the introduction of this new system, Android messages will become more fun and livelier in the future. Till then, we can only wait and deal with the existing Android messaging system.
