Google announced a couple of updates to Google Maps today. The Google Maps Navigation app for Android, for example, will now offer turn-by-turn navigation for India. In addition, Google has also turned on live traffic data for six large Indian cities and their suburbs. These cities are Bengaluru, Mumbai, New Delhi, Chennai, Pune and Hyderabad.

Today’s update isn’t just about India, though. Google is also launching biking directions and Map Maker for New Zealand and, just in time for the start of the next semester, the company is bringing Street View imagery to 150 universities around the world.
