Google Maps displays speed limits for Android and iOS apps

Google Maps has started to display speed limits for its Android and iOS apps.

The new feature means that the speed limit for roads appear in the corner of the app, which also reveals the actual location of the speed camera.

What's more, Mashable reports that drivers are set to benefit from an audio notification when they're near to a speed trap.

Users in Denmark, the United Kingdom, and the United States are starting to witness the emergence of the update, while Australian, Brazilian, Canadian, Indian, Indonesian, Mexican, Russian, British, and American users have seen the introduction of the speed camera icons.

Meanwhile, Google recently started rolling out a feature to fight spam text messages.

Android users started getting alerts for a new spam protection feature from Google in their Messages app.

The spam protection can be toggled on or off via the Advanced section of the Android Settings menu.

When the feature is enabled, the data Google collects from that user doesn't include the content of their messages or their phone number, according to Google's support site.

The site reads: "With spam protection enabled, some info about your messages is sent to Google without including the actual content or your phone number.

"To help identify spammers, Google temporarily stores the phone numbers of people sending and receiving messages with you and the times they messaged with you, but does not store your phone number or the content of these messages."
