Google Maps will introduce a new widget in the coming weeks that can predict nearby traffic on a person’s home screen without requiring them to open the app, Google said in a blog post on Thursday. Real-time traffic predictions already exist in Waze, another Google Maps app, and in Google Maps itself. This widget brings the traffic prediction feature to a person’s home screen by using location information. Google says this makes it easier for users to look at their phone to see what the traffic is like locally.

The company also touts the ability to zoom in with the widget without having to open the app. This widget is currently limited to Android phones. Last week, Google talked about an upcoming Google Maps widget that would allow users to get real-time traffic forecasts right on their home screen. At the time, the company said the widget would be rolling out “in the next few weeks,” but it appears the widget is already showing up for some users.

The new “Nearby Traffic” widget appears to have been introduced with Google Maps v11.35.1 (via Mishaal Rahman), which has been available on the Play Store since yesterday.
