After introducing lane guidance across Europe last month, Google Maps is now bringing the feature to India. This update will help drivers safely make exits on highways and navigate flyovers without any hassle.

Lane guidance will be available for major roads across 20 Indian cities: Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Bhopal, Chandigarh, Chennai, Coimbatore, Delhi, Hyderabad, Indore, Jaipur, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mumbai, Mysore, Nagpur, Pune, Surat, Thiruvananthapuram, Vadodara and Visakhapatnam and on major expressways including the Mumbai-Pune expressway.

In addition, users can now get turn-by-turn, voice-guided instructions in Hindi.

Google also added a few new Maps yesterday, including direction sharing and improved restaurant search on its iOS and Android apps.
