This can get rather irritating after a while, but there are times when the journey takes a turn for the worse, no thanks to an unexpected accident that clogs traffic up. Here is a tool from Google Maps that might arrive in the future – ETA alerts.

Evidence for ETA alerts in Google Maps have started to appear, where the new Google Maps v9.26.1 for Android which was talked about yesterday that came with updated search-along-route tools for multiple transit modes, it seems that unused code within the app do look as though they are pointing in the new “Discover” mode direction, as well as files that include references to a new way of sharing ETA info.

In other words, users might be on the receiving end of the option to share their destination as well as estimated time of arrival with people who have an interest, not to mention a mode that informs them concerning the general traffic conditions that you have to face while getting there.
