You no longer require an Android handset to report accidents and other traffic issues in Google Maps. Google has added a road incident reporting feature to iOS, allowing you flag issues without opening an app such as Waze. Whichever OS you employ, Google is also extending the series of reportable collisions to include disabled cars, construction, objects on the road, and lane closures. You will see both the expanded categories and iOS support launch out this week.
There are some surprises in store if you are a subscriber of Google One, too. People on “specific” plans can receive as much as 10% in Google Store credit when they purchase an accessory or device from the shop. And if you were only mulling over about One, purchasing a Pixel 4 will offer you a 3-month trial with 100GB of storage for the entry-level plan, along with Pro Sessions and upgraded support to make the most of your handset. This will not make up for the conclusion of free full-quality photo storage, but it will assist you to make a decision if it is worth paying for that advantage.
On a related note, Google and GM are collaborating to add embedded navigation, a voice assistant, and in-vehicle apps to Chevrolet, GMC, Buick, and Cadillac cars starting from 2021. The companies declared the association earlier, and as per the automotive behemoth, it plans to launch the tech out ultimately for all the players in the market.
As per GM, users “increasingly hope for seamless incorporation between the tech in their vehicle and the tech in their hands.” Shortly, the infotainment systems of the firm will be fueled by Android and have an in-built Google Assistant. Google Maps will be added in the cars, and users will be capable of downloading in-car apps from the app store. GM will still provide some of its current infotainment features, such as vehicle health status and service recommendations.
