News / Mobile phones Google Maps now gives lane guidance for 20 cities in India

Google has just rolled out the lane guidance feature in Google Maps in India, after rolling out the feature in Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the UK and Ireland last month.

Google had first announced the feature along with the major Google Maps 3.0 update in May 2014.

The lane guidance feature is available in the turn-by-turn navigation mode, which will tell you which lane to stay in or move to, to make sure you don’t miss your next turn or exit. When you approach a junction or exit with multiple lanes, voice guidance in English or Hindi and step-by-step directions will tell you which is the best lane for your route. You will see the instructions at the top left corner of the screen, which tells you which turn you need to take, and after how much distance. It will also provide alternative routes while you’re navigating so you can select the best route.

The feature is being rolled out from the server side, so you won’t need to update the Google Maps app to access the feature. If you haven’t download Google Maps then you can download it for free using the download link below.

The feature is currently available for major roads in 20 cities including Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Bhopal, Chandigarh, Chennai, Coimbatore, Delhi, Hyderabad, Indore, Jaipur, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mumbai, Mysore, Nagpur, Pune, Surat, Thiruvananthapuram, Vadodara and Visakhapatnam. It will also be available on major expressways including the Mumbai-Pune expressway.

If you’re in these countries, and use Google Maps, please drop us a line to let us know how well it works. Google hasn’t mentioned when it will roll out the feature in other countries.
