As it turns out, the search giant has started surveying users about the driving mode in Google Maps in an attempt to figure out what’s working right and what needs to be improved.
“Did you enjoy the new driving mode?” Google asks in the email before requesting users to detail how they use it and share more information on their devices, including the screen size.
It's worth noting that Google is particularly interested in the navigation experience with the new driving mode. The search giant asks users not only how they want to run Google Maps on their phones (with or without the bundled Assistant mode) but also how they configured the bottom bar on their Android devices to interact with the app (3 buttons, 2 buttons, or gesture-based navigation).
Clearly, Google wants to improve the driving mode in Google Maps, and the best thing is the company plans to do the whole thing based on user feedback.
Of course, time will tell how the new feature of the navigation app evolves, but for the time being, it continues to be available for Android users in the United States exclusively. There’s no ETA as to when Google could bring it to more people out there. One interesting tidbit concerns a potential launch on the iPhone, as the company has so far remained tight-lipped on this update landing on Apple devices.
