Google Maps speed limit signs appear in more United States cities

The feature, which was introduced in 2017, was previously only working in two metropolitan areas: Rio de Janeiro and San Francisco.

The rollout has not arrived everywhere in the USA yet, but Android Police has received tips that it is live in at least three different parts of the country. This new feature will allow you to avoid speeding ticket. But with upwards of 2.1 million apps on Google Play, sometimes things slip through the cracks, which seems precisely how at least 19 different free navigation apps were found to actually be knock-offs based on Google Maps saddled with an extra layer of ads. According to a statement by Android Police last November, it was also suggested that rash and speed traps were already being reported.

On the other hand, even though they both have the same type of features, I think there will always be many users who prefer the "social" aspect of Waze. As per the report by Android Police report, the speed limit icon has now located inside Google Maps.

Adding these features to Maps makes sense, particularly given Google's increasing focus on personalization in the app. There has been no word from the search-engine giant as yet confirming the expansion of the "speed limit" feature on Maps across USA or globally. In addition, they might just be more inclined to switch from Waze to Google Maps if Google Maps is quicker at introducing all these practical features.

The new commute tab is located in the toolbar at the bottom of the Google Maps app, between the "Explore" and "For you" tabs.

Google is finally bringing some of Waze's most convenient features to Google Maps, the most notable being speed trap warnings. Now speed limit signs are appearing in Google Maps. Seeing as Google Maps has added most of the features that Waze has available.
