Ever been frustrated about the absence of a road on Google Maps? Well, now Google Maps is working on this issue and it is introducing a new feature that will allow the users to add roads that are not available on Google Maps. This update will allow the user to add a missing road, realign and rename the road segments. This feature is called “drawing” in which you can use a line tool to draw lines to add the missing road in the Google Maps. This feature will make it easy for the user to add the missing road and even help in correcting the name of the road and even the direction of the road whether it is a one-way road or not.
This new feature might appear in the navigation option where you click “Edit the maps” and then select “Missing road” to add a road where you want to add the missing segment of the road, add the name and other important information about the road. This new tool gives you a full-screen experience and allows you to add a road or delete a road segment easily. This updated feature will be available in more than 80 countries over the coming months.
Along with the road editing feature, another feature that is announced by Google Maps is that the user can add a photo as a review of the location. This feature allows the user to upload a photo of the location accompanied by a short description of the location. Rather than rating or leaving a review about a place this feature of upload the photo of the location will give more information about the place.
