New Delhi. It would not be wrong to call the 21st century the century of modern and scientific miracles. In this century new discoveries have been made due to technology. From banking to travelling, today all our tasks are made very easy by technology. In this century, Google introduced the modern map (Google Maps) and took it to great heights. Let us inform you that Google started Google Trip in 2005. Today only a handful of people know which city Google chose for its first trip. If you don’t know it, today we are going to tell you who was the first person chosen by Google as its trip planner.
Let us tell you that Google Trip started its planner from Portland. In December 2005, the company made Portland the first city in Oregon to use Transit Google Trip Planner, which helps passengers view public transit schedules and routes. It started as a standalone product, but was later integrated into Google Maps. Within a few years, this facility entered cities around the world.
Notably, Google launched Google Maps in 2005. At that time the company said that it will gradually emerge as a useful and necessary feature for people and it is also true that today no app can reach its customers without Google Navigation. Today everyone from OLA to Rapido can use Google Map and walk the route provided by Google to reach the customer.
Google Maps app was launched in 2008
After years of work, in November 2007, Google Maps entered Google Mobile as well. After that it became very easy for people to find their way. Google Maps’ first Android app was launched in 2008, followed by the iOS app in 2012. Today, you can zoom in on the tiny world of Google Maps and see roads and routes around the world comfortably.
Solve traffic problems
You will be surprised to know that more than 5 million websites and apps use Google Maps every day. Apart from this, Google has also worked to get rid of traffic jams. Almost two years after the launch of Google Maps, Google Maps has launched real-time traffic state information for more than 30 US cities. For this, Google has chosen three traffic colors in which red color shows more jams, yellow color shows less traffic and green color shows traffic free roads. This initiative greatly benefited the people of America, then till today every country has real time google maps.
