Check Traffic in Google Maps


Check Traffic in Google Maps on Mobile

To view the traffic levels on your iPhone, iPad, or Android phone, use the free Google Maps app.

Start by launching Google Maps on your phone. To the right of the current map, tap the “Layers” icon (a square over another square).

Tap "Layers" on the right.

You’ll see a menu pop up from the bottom of your phone’s screen. To enable live traffic data on your map, then from this menu, select “Traffic.”

Then close the menu by tapping “X” in the top-right corner.

Choose "Traffic" and tap "X."

Your map will now show color-coded lines indicating the status of traffic.

Maps also lets you use fuel-efficient routes if you’d like to save on fuel on your next journey.

First, open a web browser on your computer and access Google Maps. In the current map’s bottom-left corner, hover your cursor over the “Layers” icon.

Hover over "Layers" at the bottom.

From the expanded menu, choose the “Traffic” layer.

Click the "Traffic" layer.

And immediately, Maps will show color-coded lines on your current map indicating the traffic delays.

Tip: To change from live traffic to typical traffic, at the bottom of the map, click the “Live Traffic” option.
