Google Maps speed camera alerts and speed limit indicators rolling out worldwide
One of the important features that differentiate Waze from other navigation apps like Google Maps is the possibility to see in-depth traffic information and get alerts about speed cameras and speed limits indications.

Surprisingly, the feature didn't make it to Google Maps yet, even after the search giant acquired Waze. Well, the anomaly is about to be completely dissipated as Google Maps users in a bunch of countries report they are now getting speed camera alerts and can now see speed limit indicators.

According to AndroidPolice, speed camera alerts should now be available for many users in the following countries: Australia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, Greece, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, the UK, and the US. 

Furthermore, another new Google Maps feature, the option to see speed limits while driving, is now live in Denmark, Poland, the UK, and US. However, we expect these features to roll out to all Google Maps users worldwide, it's just that this appears to be a released gradually, so we'll just have to wait until Google enables it for more people.
