Google Maps is the tech giant’s navigation solution that is hugely-popular.

The software is available via an app on Android and iOS smartphones but can also be harnessed on desktops.

Google Maps is regularly upgraded by the Mountain View firm, meaning new functionality is always being introduced.

The newest update for the client brings two new features that greatly improve the software for those that use it while driving.

Google has confirmed with Mashable it is rolling out the ability to see speed camera traps and speed limits on its mobile application.

Last week it was reported both features had arrived for some users in limited US territories.

At the time it was unknown if Google had plans to release the functionality across the globe.

But the American tech giant has declared the ability to see speed camera traps is rolling out now for users in the UK, US, Australia, Russia, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, India, and Indonesia.

Moreover, the ability to see speed limits is arriving in the UK, US and Denmark.

Android Police was the first to share images of the new features in use thanks to tipsters that had got in touch with the outlet.

The speed limit feature is subtle but useful; a badge is present in the bottom left-hand side of the Google Maps app that shows how fast the user should be driving.

Meanwhile, speed cameras are shown in yellow and will be displayed if they are on a route the user is navigating through.

In addition to on-screen prompts, Google Maps will alert the user when they are near a speed camera through an audio cue, too.

The new additions appear to be arriving to users via a server-side switch, meaning it does not seem as though a traditional update for Google Maps from the App Store or Google Play Store is needed.

However, it is still advisable that users make sure they are running the latest version of the software.

This can be checked by heading to the respective application store on iOS and Android and checking for updates manually.
