Recently, the demand for instructions from cyclists has increased significantly. Between February and now, requests for bike directions have increased by 69%. Google’s data hit a record high last month. We all know that the routes for cars, bikes and bicycles are not exactly the same. Cyclists can take advantage of unconventional routes that speed up their journey. Due to the increasing number of requests for directions, Google Maps now has some updates on cycling routes in major cities.
Google Maps updated bike lanes use information from complex AI algorithms and crowdsourcing data. It offers the latest options for cyclists. The information includes various forms of cycle paths and cycle-friendly roads.
Google Maps Product Manager Vishal Dutta wrote on his blog: “During COVID-19, we are making it easier for cyclists everywhere to ride their own bikes, regardless of whether people are driving to exercise or safely driving to work.”
To keep up with the era of rapid change (for example, COVID-19 prompted certain cities to enlarge or widen bike lanes to encourage more riders), Google invited local government agencies to share changes through geographic data uploading tools.
No two-wheelers? No problem. Google Maps provides more detailed information on sharing bikes, such as: B. step-by-step hiking and cycling routes to and from the docking station as well as real-time availability. In some cities, it even offers links to related Bike Share apps so you can easily book and unlock vehicles.
Google Docs now has over a billion downloads on the Play Store
In other reports, Google Docs now has over 1 billion downloads on the Play Store. It took six years for Google Docs to hit 1 billion downloads on Google. This is because Google didn’t make this app mandatory in their GMS package. Two years ago (October 2018), Google Docs had 500 million downloads on the Play Store. This shows that this app has grown in popularity over the past two years. The exponential increase in downloads could be due to the increase in “work from home”.
Another reason for its popularity could be the massive increase in the use of Google Workspace. This workspace comes with Google Docs. Also, this feature (Docs) is a free to use service with cloud services. It has a very good reason to be popular with technological advancement.
