How sneaky of you, Google.
An update of Google Maps added at the beginning of June allows users to see local speed limits, as well as alert them when they’re getting near a speed camera, even if it’s a mobile speed camera. The update has been applied in more than 40 countries all over the world.
The feature was first available half a year ago only in selected countries, but it has now expanded to a few other countries, mostly from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
Rumors regarding the new Maps feature were initially posted on Reddit. Google later confirmed it to TechCrunch and provided a list of countries included in the update.
Here’s a list of all the countries where this feature is available:
- Bosnia and Herzegovina
- Saudi Arabia
- South Africa
Unfortunately, it’s unclear whether Google is only going to implement this feature in select countries or if it’s going to roll out the update to other countries as well, since Google has yet to release an official confirmation.
