Windows Maps now includes Lane Guidance & Live Traffic Cameras

In a comparatively bigger update, Microsoft has released the latest version of Windows Maps, adding some handy features like lane guidance while navigating and live traffic cameras from as much as 11 countries.

The changelog at Windows Store added the below lines

  • Pin your Home or Work to Start for one-tap guided directions from anywhere
  • Find Santa and follow him as he travels around the world on December 24th*
  • Get lane guidance in turn-by-turn navigation (requires Windows 10 November update)

Along with these 2 really cool features, there is a Christmas special too. On 24th, you will be able to locate and track Santa as he goes for a round across the world. Along with that, Traffic camera support has not been mentioned in the changelog, however, that’s a big addition to features. Microsoft had recently added support for over 35,000 live traffic cameras from 11 countries and now the live camera feed is available on mobile too.
