Speed limits are hitting Google Maps on iOS and Carplay, assisting iPhone-using drivers globally.

According to Google, the speedometer within the app “shows you how fast you’re driving on the road”, while the speed limit alerts will show drivers if they’re going too fast.

The introduction of speedometer and speed limits comes to iPhones years after Androids became privy to the feature; Android users first got the tool back in 2019.

First reported by TechCrunch, the same features will be shown when users start using navigation on Google Maps on their iPhones.

Users can now turn on the speed limit indicators, by going into the Google Maps app and finding Settings, heading to Navigation and selecting “Driving options.” If the feature is enabled, the speed indicator will change colors to nudge drivers to stay within speed limits within their designated region.
