This is an interesting one, we discovered that Google was giving real-time traffic data sometime back, several users tested this and it showed traffic updates on different routes. After doing the story on what we knew, Google responded to our query on the same. They said they have not done that and there is no real-time traffic data yet.
The interesting bit here is that many Android users online noticed an alert on their Google Now saying there will be heavy traffic expected on Wednesday, the day Pope Francis arrives in Kenya. See tweet below:
Is it a case of testing but not launched, so “we cannot talk about it yet” or a special roll-out for the Pope event?
