Google Maps continues to improve: starts showing traffic lights

Google Maps is one of the best known applications on Android, in addition to being one of the most improved. One of the most recent changes in the application, which we can also enjoy in Spain, is its new less robotic voice. Meanwhile, Google continues to introduce changes to its navigation application, such as the one they have already started to deploy.

Since now, Google Maps starts showing the location of traffic lights on the road. This is something that is in a somewhat initial phase, but you start to see icons that indicate the presence of traffic lights when you are using the Google Maps application.

Google Maps shows traffic lights

Now, Google Maps starts showing these traffic lights both when navigating, when you are driving, and when you are simply looking at the streets in a certain city. In the case of simply consulting, the icons are quite small, so you have to zoom in to see them properly. In navigation they have a larger size, which makes it easier to see them.

Although they are starting to show, when using navigation, the application does not mention anything about traffic lights yet. The logical thing would be that in the near future the application will allow you to plan routes avoiding as many traffic lights as possible, but it seems that this is not possible at the moment. The introduction of traffic lights in the application is still in an initial phase.

In fact, Few users have been able to see these traffic lights on Google Maps. For this reason, everything indicates that the application is testing the introduction of this function, but that it is not ready at the moment for all of us to be able to use it. Undoubtedly, it could be a useful function in the application, especially now that route calculation is improved, which would allow us to have routes where we avoid the greatest number of traffic lights, ideal in the city.
