Google launches two-wheeler mode in Google Maps for India

Some users in India are viewing a new Motorcycle mode or Two-Wheeler mode in the latest version of Google Maps (v9.67.1) for Android. "When we build better products for India, we ultimately build better products for everyone".

The route map has also been completely redesigned to suite the movement of the bike riders displaying real time congestion. Similar to that in cars, the two-wheeler mode too comes with voice assist in navigation but at the same time shows an even more convenient mode compared to that of the auto.

"Two-wheeler mode in Maps shows trip routes that use "shortcuts" not accessible to cars and trucks". In a similar situation, a vehicle owner would navigate to his destination using Google Maps. "It also provides customized traffic and arrival-time estimations", said Google in its blog. Google announced the new feature during an event in Delhi; which other countries are slated to get the additional routing option isn't clear, nor when the feature will expand to them. Since Indian roads are dominated by the two-wheelers and there are certain routes which can only accommodate them instead of cars, a feature like this is of great help to the two-wheeler commuters of the county.
