Google Maps is rolling out reporting features for speed traps and accidents, almost a year after it introduced speed limits in navigation.

“If a new icon appeared in the Maps for you recently, don’t worry, it’s not another messaging service from Google. Rather, it’s a shortcut for opening up the new reporting feature for speed traps and accidents.

“Similar to Waze, Google Maps is adding the ability for users to take part in reporting accidents they see along their route, and speed traps,” 9to5Google reported late on Wednesday.

Adding a fun-touch for users on April Fool’s Day, Google is rolling out the classic “Snakes” game on Maps with a slight twist.

Instead of animated snakes, the game would represent different cities with busses and trains for users to choose from.

“To start playing, simply open the Google Maps app, tap on the menu icon on the top left corner, then select ‘Play Snake’ to get your daily dose of 90s nostalgia,” said Omar Abdelaziz, Product Manager, Google Maps.

On selecting their city of choice, users would have to swipe their train or bus around the city on Maps and pick up as many passengers as they can.

The search-engine giant has also created a stand-alone website for the game.
