Google Maps: Their new feature will show the traffic lights!

The company is constantly trying to improve it service and offer a better experience to users. It has been revealed that Google is testing a new feature of maps to show them traffic lights that exist on the streets! Of course, it may be one mode just for Android smartphones.

The Droid-Life presented several screenshots showing the traffic lights on the road maps.

The snapshots belong to a user who lives in Western Des Moines, a city that will soon support it Google Fiber, and show several points on the streets of Google Maps, where city lights are clearly visible at intersections. They are visible in the basic map viewing function as well as during navigation.

This feature could be useful for many reasons, but especially when navigating. It can also inform drivers when they are about to encounter a traffic light, and not find them unprepared.  

Of course, Google Maps can't show the current one condition of the traffic light, so that drivers know if they need to stop or if they will continue to drive normally.

From what we know, we can say that it seems to be a kind of Server-Side test, but all tests can be quite small or very limited in availability only in certain areas and cities.

It should be noted that a similar operation was launched last year Apple for its own map and navigation application. As the photos show, there is no indication that Google is copying it to indicate the stop signs provided on Apple Maps, or at least not yet.
