Get London Underground service updates in real time on Google Maps

 The London Underground is by far and away the easiest way to to travel around the UK’s capital. As a UK resident who travels to London for work on a monthly basis personally, I can tell you first hand that it’s equal parts brilliant and frustrating.

The wonderful Maps team at Google have managed to sneak in a useful update that might make that daily commute just a little bit easier. As well as planning your journey, Google Maps will now also give you a heads up on any scheduled work and real time updates of any delays etc. Just another step towards cementing Google Maps position as Android’s bona fide ‘killer app’
