Traffic Estimates Return To Google Maps

Traffic Estimates Return To Google Maps

About a year ago, Google dropped traffic estimates from Google Maps driving directions and now they are back in the form of “current traffic conditions.” To see the traffic conditions, go to Google Maps and type directions from point A to point B.

I have a question out to Google to clarify this and will update the story when we hear back. Image from Luna Vandoorne /Shutterstock .
