Google Maps now can tell you the best time of day to travel to your destination

Considering how useful Google maps have been in recent times in timing your movement and knowing which routes are congested it was only a matter of time before certain other interesting updates were added.

One of such updates is the determination of the best time to get on the road in a bid to avoid traffic.

The new feature is only available for Maps users on Android, and it pops up when you input directions. Along with showing you the usual estimated time and distance, a new bar graph will appear, showing the relative time it will take your trip now (highlighted in either green, yellow, or red to indicate current traffic conditions) and an estimate of both how long it would have taken a half hour earlier and how long it will take in the next few hours.

While it’s not super precise, it seems like a useful addition for when you’re trying to pre-plan out your next trip.

The new time estimate feature is rolling out to Google Maps users on Android now, although there’s no word as to when iOS users might see it.
