According to Mishaal Rahman, the new Nearby Traffic widget looks to be coming with Google Maps v11.35.1, which started rolling out via the Play Store yesterday. We can confirm that it’s accessible on every one of our devices that has the most recent update. “It appears that the new Nearby Traffic widget that was revealed last week is now available. Google Maps for Android is currently at version 11.35.1 “said in the blog post by Mishaal Rahman.
The Nearby Traffic widget displays your current position as a blue dot in the center of a traffic map layer that displays green, orange, and red lines to indicate how congested the area is around you. You can zoom in and out of the map with the floating action button (FAB) in the bottom left corner, which has a magnifying glass icon. The Google logo is located next to it. While the Nearby Traffic widget only displays traffic data for a limited region immediately surrounding your present location, you may touch on it to open Google Maps and observe data for a larger area.
