Google Maps launched Stay Safer, a new feature which alerts you when the driver deviates from the route.
Stay Safer can be enabled while searching for the destination to get the directions. The new feature is aimed to make the travelling alone safer for women.
When the driver deviated more than 0.5 Km from the Google Maps suggested route, your phone with enabled feature will buzz with the Get off-route alerts. The new route can be compared to the original and your live trip can also be shared with friends and family directly from that screen and take required action.
Stay Safer feature is available to Android users in India using the latest version of Google Maps.
