Google is reportedly testing speed limit indicators in Google Maps and Android Auto

New, 7 comments

Google is reportedly in the process of adding speed limit indicators to Android Auto and Maps app, testing a feature that has been requested by many users, and is already available in software from competitors like Garmin and Waze. A Google Maps user posted a screenshot showing a speed limit sign in the lower left corner of the app to Reddit. Another photo, shared by Android Police, shows a similar indicator appearing in the bottom right of the in-car Android Auto interface.

Android users in both the US and the UK claimed to see the new speed limit indicators, with some reporting that the feature appeared for a short time, before disappearing a day later. It's not clear when this feature will arrive officially in the app, or which countries it will come to first, but its inclusion would be a bonus for Android Auto users who have relied on other software in the past to inform them of speed limits.
