Google Maps is testing integrated parking payment -
The Mountain View firm is once again inspired by the Waze app - which it owns - to improve its other navigation service, Maps.
Google is indeed testing level crossing alerts on Maps.
When approaching a junction with a railway, the app will display a symbol to alert drivers.
The application will also warn them of the presence of a level crossing on their route when searching for a route since the crossing with it could cause delay on their route.

No date announced yet
Currently, the feature is still in testing with multiple users.
Several of them have indeed reported having received a new type of notification during a trip with Maps telling them that they were approaching a railroad.
The mapping application indeed told them that they could expect a delay for this reason.
However, it will be necessary to be patient before seeing this new functionality deployed to all users.
It's hard to give a date, but Google should announce the good news via a new blog post, as usual.
It should also be noted that Maps also recently rolled out a new feature highly anticipated by users: dark mode.
