Google Enables Traffic Incidents Reporting on Google Maps in iOS


Good news for all iOS users – now report live traffic riffraff’s on Google Maps from your iPhone. Previously, this feature was exclusive to only Android-running smartphones, but now the search engine giant has made it possible for iOS users to avail this feature as well.

By using this exclusive feature, smartphone owners can report a variety of traffic-based collisions, accidents, catastrophes, and several other incidents onto Google Maps without using any third-party applications. In an effort to increase its influence on real-time incident reporting, Google is gradually increasing the range of coverable incidents, as well as new devices/OS’s.

To make “incident reporting” efficient and effective in Google Maps, Google now includes incident reporting from objects on road, construction sites, lane closures, and others to be soon introduced. Extended support for this feature to other iOS devices apart from iPhones will roll out later this week. But Google is not stopping here in rewarding iOS users, there is more for curious iPhone users.
Google has also announced that it will give almost 10% off in Google Store credits for Google One subscribers on selective subscription plans, to be clear. This is whenever a Google One subscriber on a “select” plan purchase a device or accessory, this 10% off in credits will be allotted to those iOS users.

In order to promote its new Pixel 4 smartphone, Google has unveiled that those iOS users who are looking to buy only a single purchase, such as that of Pixel 4 from their store, they will get a free three-month trial with 100GB cloud storage on Google One. So, iOS users should look forward to getting more out of their new purchases as Google is currently showering some love on the very-exclusive Apple platform.
