US: Search engine giant, Google has added a new feature to Google Maps for its Android platform that could make the maps’ navigation software even smarter. Known as ‘Driving Mode’, the new feature will take into account the user’s history and current location to try and determine their destination. The app will then provide suggestions of routes depending on things like travel time and traffic conditions. It appears to be similar to the algorithmic suggestions offered up in Google Now cards, with exclusive purpose of navigation. Until Google introduces the feature to Google Maps v.9.19, users can access it from the app icon shortcut or through Google Maps’ in-app sidebar.
