Google Maps’ bubbles to show upcoming turns


Google Maps v9, which has been in Google Play for a while, has had the ability to show heads-up bubbles announcing upcoming turns and street or exit names while in navigation mode. The feature was previously only available to a lucky few but is now much more widely available.

To see if the feature has been enabled, the user has to go to Google Maps and enter navigation mode by getting driving directions to a destination and tapping the blue arrow at the bottom right of the screen. The user would see his/her first turn or exit marked by a little blue bubble announcing the exit number or street name along with an arrow indicating the direction s/he needs to take.
