Google Maps adding speed limits to Android App

Auto / Tech

Android users have (briefly) spotted speed limit indicators in the Google Maps app.

A long awaited, and often requested feature, may finally be getting added to the Google Maps Android (and hopefully iOS) app. The news comes by way of a screenshot on reddit, from a user that posted a screenshot from his Android device.

Many users thought the feature would be coming sooner, considering Google’s purchase of Waze over three years ago. Apart from the screenshot, the user didn’t give much more information so at this time we’re unsure of the full limit of the functionality. In Waze, if you go over the speed limit the app will tell you, it’d be nice to see this same functionality come to the Google Maps app as well. Either way, it will be nice to be able to see the current speed limit of the road you’re driving on, especially in areas where you don’t frequently travel.

Have you started seeing speed limits show up on your Google Maps app? If so, what country are you located in? Do you think this is a useful feature that’s a long time coming? What other features do you hope to see Google add to it’s Google Maps apps in the future? Let us know in the comments below, or on Google+, Twitter, or Facebook.
