There are advantages in competition. Sasha Lekach on a feature in Google Maps that I want to see in Apple Maps:
Imagine for a moment you’re in a foreign country and tripping over your own tongue to give a cab driver directions they can understand. Sound familiar? Well, Google Maps is ready and willing to help.
Supposedly rolling out now. I haven’t see it yet.
You’ll notice a new speaker button next to the place name or address of interest on the Google Maps app. Simply tap it and the app will speak the location out loud. Google Maps does this by automatically detecting if the language you normally use in the app isn’t the same as the place you’re visiting.
