Google Maps wants to make your commute less taxing (and more musical)

Google Maps now also supports Spotify, Apple Music, and Google Play Music podcast and music playback to help keep you entertained while you travel.

The new Google Maps features roll out for Android and iOS this week.

"Google Maps now features a commute tab that provides one-tap access to live traffic and transit information tailored to your commute".

"Commute data in 25 North American cities tells us daily commute times during rush hour traffic can be up to 60 percent longer than what you expect when you start your drive-resulting in a lot of stress, missed meetings, and skipped breakfasts". It will give alternative routes also and on Android, you will get the notification about delays and disruptions on your route. It's here that you'll find traffic information about your commute, and if you're going to face a delay on your standard route, Google will suggest an alternate.

EPL: Mourinho singles out three Man United players for blame
I'm not asking you who did you speak with yesterday or this morning, who was your last phone call, that's a private matter. Sometimes it can help but the most important is on the pitch.

Last month, Google launched new AI features that study your activity to predict restaurants and bars you may enjoy checking out next.

Google realizes this and is updating Google Maps to try and help. In Sydney, Google has partnered with Transport New South Wales to show how full the next bus or train is. While not entirely new for public transportation, it's now possible to have this feature involve bikes and cars as well. Launching in 80 regions around the world today, Google Maps will now show you where your bus or train is and how long it'll be before your ride arrives at your stop. This too will presumably reach more cities over time; when it does, at least you'll know when you won't get a seat before you board. This is partly a safety feature for those who like to play mobile DJ while driving-although this isn't advisable when you're creeping in traffic and trying not to rear-end the vehicle in front of you.

Spotify users on Android have it a little better than the rest, as they'll be able to browse through songs, albums, podcasts, and playlists, Google said Monday.
