The latest version of the app-Google Maps on Android-v.188.8.131.52 to be accurate, is needed for trying the two-wheeler mode.
This feature will be available alongside other transit options like Drive, Train, Walk, and Cab within the app. The service now displays routes specifically tailored for two-wheelers when you look up destinations around you.
Further, the mode also provides customized traffic and arrival time estimations. While planning the route, a rider can view major local landmarks on the way which will be useful during navigation. The feature has rest of the Google Maps feature like traffic situations, lanes, voice navigation etc. Voice-guided navigation like the auto mode has also been carried forward to the 2-wheeler mode.
Google notes that it informs you of road closures and parking status as well. Since Indian roads are dominated by the two-wheelers and there are certain routes which can only accommodate them instead of cars, a feature like this is of great help to the two-wheeler commuters of the county.
