In a new test, Google Maps is showing the location of traffic lights in cities around the US in its Android app. The feature was initially spotted by Droid Life, and its existence has since been confirmed by Google. “To help people stay better informed on the road, we’re testing a Google Maps feature on Android that shows the location of traffic lights in select cities across the U.S,” the company told The Verge.
Google Maps isn’t the first mapping app to start showing traffic light locations in the US, after Apple Maps added them last year with iOS 13, according to Droid Life. Apple’s Siri voice assistant even integrates them into its directions. Instead of telling you to turn left after a certain number of feet, Siri can tell you to “turn left at the next traffic light,” in an attempt to make the voice assistant’s directions more natural-sounding and easier to understand.
