Now, report traffic 'Slowdown'  on Google Maps: Here's how
A few weeks ago, Google added 'Event Reporting' to Maps as part of an effort to crowdsource data related to navigation required.

This feature has allowed users to report crash and speed trap, but now, tech continues to make giant power even better. This has added recession reporting, which gives users the option to report the crowd on the road.

Here's how it works.

How the new 'Slowdown' option will help

With the new down slow option, people using Google Maps will be able to flag high traffic on the road.

Reports, when presented by many users, will allow Google to redirect people coming from behind on a route where they can not get stuck.

This works just like the 'crash and just speed trap' reporting features, which Google recently added.

Here's how it works.

It may take some time for Google to update its navigation data

While Google already shows traffic on the map, the new feature will make its ability to detect overwhelming and repetitive users.

Essentially, Google's data collection process takes some time, which means that until the maps are updated (changing blue navigation lines to red / burgundy), you've already taken busy paths Will be there.

The reports of these crowds are expected to generate traffic alerts more quickly.

How You Can Submit Traffic Sloth Reports

Reporting traffic recession, as we said, it is similar to a car accident or a report of speed trap on the road.

You have to go in navigation mode and. Hit the arrow-up button to open the slide-up menu with an option called 'Add a report'.

When you tap on it, Maps will show a 'Slow down' button to report to the crowd on the road.

Only available on Android

This feature has been rolling out, and it can be tried in Google Maps for Android immediately.

There is currently no word on iOS availability, but we hope Google can not take a long time to add this capability.
In addition, it is worth noting that this slowdown can appear as 'ion congestion on your device' if its language preference is set in UK English.
