The feature was initially launched a few weeks back as a beta-update for testers, but now anyone can get it from PlayStore (Android) or AppStore (iOS).
The new option for "two wheeler" navigation appears next to drive in Google Maps. Earlier, the offline maps and landmark-based navigation were also launched as India first which later became popular in the rest of the world.
"We don't adapt maps for India. India is the largest two-wheeler market in the world, and the millions of motorcycle and scooter riders have different navigation needs than drivers of automobiles", said Caesar Sengupta, Vice President, Next Billion Users Team at Google. We're seeing the new mode as well, on the most recent form of the Android app. Similar to that in cars, the two-wheeler mode too comes with voice assist in navigation but at the same time shows an even more convenient mode compared to that of the vehicle. It says it'll add more countries "in the coming months" so it looks like we won't have to wait long to find out.
The report also asserts that there have been sightings of the mode only by Indian users, making it the first market for the feature.
