Unfortunately, Google isn’t yet able to show the current status of the lights.
So, you won’t be able to see whether the light is about to change – or has recently turned red. However, as 5G mobile networks become more common, it’s possible that smart cities – with a network of connected traffic lights, zebra crossings, and more – could tie into mapping solutions like Google Maps and Apple Maps in future.
Google seems to be gradually testing the system with users in the United States. Android-obsessed blog Droid-Life has reported seeing traffic lights pop-up in West Des Moines.
