Google Adds Commute Tab To Maps App

Many people use Google Maps to navigate when they’re going somewhere new or don’t know the best route. However, most of us don’t use if when we already know how to get somewhere, like work. Google aims to change that with a new feature targeted at commuters. Clicking the Commute tab will now include a live estimation based on current traffic. So, if you leave the house 10 minutes late, you’ll know which route has the best chance to make up that time.
