Google Maps is one of the most popular navigation apps in the world.
The search engine company keeps adding new features to give a better experience in this app and the details related to some new features have come to the fore.
It has been told in the report of Android Police that Google Maps will also give information related to toll booths and toll tax on the way to the users.
Other expenses incurred during the journey can also be found from the app.
Users will be saved from going to toll roads
The new feature of Google Maps will come in handy if users want to avoid going to the toll road.
By seeing the toll cost, users will be able to decide whether they want to go to the toll booth route or they want to choose an alternate route.
Currently, toll roads are shown to users on Google Maps, but the price of tickets at toll booths is not mentioned in the app.
After the new update, the toll price will also be visible in the navigation app.
Google Maps Preview Program users got the message
It has been told in the report that the company has sent a message related to the new feature to Google Maps Preview Program users.
This has confirmed that the new feature will soon be made a part of the Google Maps app.
However, like other Google Maps features, it may initially be rolled out in limited markets.
The company has not officially said anything about this feature yet.
A new feature will appear with the display route
It has been told in the report that the price of tolls will be shown to the users along with their driving route and this feature will be useful to them before selecting the route. In this way users will be able to choose alternate routes if necessary.
You will be able to use Maps like this to save money
After getting the new feature, users will be able to use it to save money while traveling.
After opening Google Maps, you will have to search the route between the destination and the location.
Now you have to tap on the ‘Directions button’ and after tapping on the three-dots next to ‘Your location’ seen above, ‘Route options’ will appear.
If you tap on ‘Avoid Tolls’ in the menu that appears, you will not be shown toll booth routes.
