Google Maps Now Reveals Locations of Speed Cameras in Several Arab Countries
In a surprising move, Google Maps just released a new feature that sparked much controversy, and it’s happening in several Arab countries. The app now shows speed limits and alerts users when they’re approaching speed cameras in over 40 countries.
The feature was launched in select markets months ago and is now available in Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Qatar, Oman, Jordan, Tunisia, and Kuwait. The feature was previously exclusive on Waze, a social mobile navigation app that Google had acquired in 2013, and is now being integrated with Google Maps.
The feature is currently available for both Android and iOS users. However, for now, iOS users can only receive updates about speed cameras but cannot report them. While Android users can do both.
