Universal Windows Maps app for Windows 10 & Windows 10 Mobile recieves a significant update, now shows you traffic incidents


I usually don’t write about updates to either Microsoft’s universal apps or third party apps unless there’s something significant added with the update, and that’s the case here.

Microsoft rolled out a new update to its universal Windows Maps app (powered by Here Maps).

This brings it to version 4.1509.50911.0 and with this new version you can now see traffic incidents/accidents.

This is a very important feature that’s being added and brings the Windows maps app one step closer to being on par with Google Maps.

You can access this latest information by using the layers button.

There is also a streetside layer you can check out, though I am not entirely sure what that is exactly.

Here is what the streetside view looks like…

The Windows Maps app is installed by default on Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile devices, but if you don’t have it anymore, you can download it HERE

What other features would you love to see added to the Windows Maps app?
