Yandex Maps learned how to predict the time of a future car ride

Yandex has expanded its map application: it is now possible to build routes for the future, as well as to choose the time of departure, and the application will indicate how much car ride will take in the future.

The only way to see the length of the future trip was by building a public transport route, which is now available to those who are going to drive their own car.

The new function will help plan the trip so that it doesn't be too late or too early. Users can estimate how much time they need to put on the road. You can check the length of the journey by going, say, out of town or to the airport.

Maps will build a route based on historical traffic data and show how much time it usually takes to use the function. To use the function, you have to build a route, press the clock on the left of the drive button, and choose the date and time. The application will show the approximate time on the road, but if you push the drive, it will warn that the route will be restructured to take account of the current traffic situation.
