Finally! Google Maps Now Shows Live Traffic for Ghana

Google Maps is one of the most useful smartphone apps for the everyday person.

Staring this Month, one of the great features of Google Maps will be the ability to warn users in Ghana in real-time if there’s any traffic on their route and suggest alternative options so they don’t get stuck in traffic.

How does Google Know What’s Happening on the roads in Ghana?

Every time we use Google Maps and allow it to access our location, the app will also send location data back to its servers. That way, when our location is on a roadway, Google is able to analyze in real-time whether we’re actually moving or if we’re stuck in traffic.

By pooling data from millions of users around the clock in Ghana, and matching them with days, time, season, etc  Google is also able to see and also predict when and where you can expect heavy traffic.

Live traffic information for a place changes with day and time.

What do the different colors like orange, red, and blue mean?

The colors indicate the speed of traffic on the road.

  • Green means there are no traffic delays.
  • Orange means there’s a medium amount of traffic.
