Live Traffic Rerouting Comes to Google Maps

Google today released a beta update to Google Maps app for Android that introduces live-traffic rerouting. Up until now, the Google Maps app for Android was already an extremely good navigation app, with features like turn-by-turn voice navigation.

Going one step further to destroying all traditional GPS devices, Google's latest rerouting feature is a must have for all existing Android users. The app uses local traffic data and obtains information from other phones to give you routes that are customized to your daily commute. And even then, it'll help you avoid jams on any other road whenever possible.

The rerouting feature is currently in beta, but according to report, already works very well. Grab it!
