Google Maps is rolling out new speed limit features

Google Maps will soon display speed limits while navigating maps to help users drive more safely.

According to Android Police thanks to tips from its community, some versions of Google’s navigation app now feature speed limit notifications along with speed trap and crash alerts for both Android and iOS.

This means that Google Maps will now indicate the speed limit along your route, and alert you if you’re exceeding it, or if there have been crashes and speed traps set up on your route.

These features are similarly available on Waze, a popular navigation app which Google bought in 2013.

It’s not clear when the features will be rolled out globally
