Last week, Google talked about an upcoming Google Maps widget that will help users see real-time traffic forecasts on their home screen. At the time, the company said that widgets would be available to users “in the next few weeks”, but it seems that some users are already starting to see them.

The new Nearby Traffic widget seems to be deployed in Google Maps v11.35.1 (via Mishaal Rahman), which launched yesterday via the Play Store. You can see that it is available on all devices running the latest updates.

It looks like the new Near by Traffic widget announced last week is being rolled out. I’m using version 11.35.1 of Google Maps for Android.

As you can see in the screenshot attached, the Nearby Traffic widget has rounded edges and is 4×3 in size by default. However, you can increase or decrease the size to fit your current home screen layout.

The nearby traffic widget displays your location as a central blue dot, and its traffic map layer highlights the surrounding traffic conditions with green, orange, and red lines. A floating action button (FAB) with a magnifying glass icon is in the lower left corner that allows you to zoom in and out on the map. Next to it is the Google logo. The nearby traffic widget shows traffic in a small area around your location, but you can tap it to open Google Maps to see traffic in a larger area.

If you haven’t received the new Nearby Traffic widget on your device, try updating to the latest Google Maps release from the Play Store link below. After updating, it will be displayed in the widget menu. However, if this is not the case, you will have to wait a few days for it to roll out to your device.

What do you think of the new Nearby Traffic widget? Do you use it to plan your daily commute? Let us know in the comments section below.
