Google Testing ‘Incognito Mode’ In Maps

Technology

Google is going to launch its “Incognito Mode” soon for better privacy on your location data. According to the XDA Developers report, the “Incognito Mode” in Google Maps is currently being tested in the Android app. Incognito Mode for Google Maps will have several specific privacy features when rolled out globally.

According to the report “The Google Maps 10.26 version also hints at a new ‘Eyes Free’ walking navigation mode. The “Eyes Free” mode will reduce how often you need to look at your phone when you’re using it to navigate as you walk”.

This mode would “add more detailed voice guidance during walking navigation”.

Google Maps added a new “Live View” navigation mode last month that cover walking directions in augmented reality.

Google Maps has started rolling out privacy features to beta testers.

Google is also adding support for bike-sharing stations to let people be informed on docked bike-sharing services near them to make Maps more useful for users.

Earlier in May, Google introduced speed limits and mobile radar locations in over 40 countries, after running tests in the US and elsewhere.

Google Maps also added more than 45,000 community and public toilets In July 2019 as part of the Central government’s “Loo Review” campaign that covers 1,700 cities in India.
