Since 2018, Google has been slowly adding new ways to Google Maps on Android to report incidents on the road, such as accidents, road closures and traffic decelerations. However, Google Maps users on iOS will soon be able to report street incidents as of this week.
In a blog post (via 9to5Google ), Google states that iPhone users can now report traffic crashes, speeding, and slowdowns. To report an incident, in the navigation interface, tap a new button under the compass as shown in this GIF:
And iOS users are not the only ones receiving new reporting options – Google indicates that users Both platforms will be able to report on designs, lane closures, disabled vehicles, and road objects in updates released around this week to give you a better idea of the current road conditions. Now that both users are able to report on what's happening on both major phone platforms, hopefully Google Maps will provide similarly useful information.
