Google Maps brings lane guidance to Europe

It gets very frustrating when you need to take a cut on the highway and you find yourself on the opposite end of the road. Luckily for Google Maps users in Europe, this shouldn’t be a problem any more. Google has brought its lane guidance system to select countries in Europe, after having made it available in the US for some time. So if you’re using Google Maps in UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy or Spain, the app will now tell you when to switch lanes in the turn-by-turn navigation mode before you miss the exit or a junction. You can either use voice guidance or have it show up on the top of the screen.

Google hasn’t published any new update for its apps on iOS and Android, so we’re assuming the switch has been turned on the server side and was baked into the app in the last update.
