Google Maps has added in its latest update the possibility of activating a Spanish voice. By activating it, the user will be able to follow the directions to follow a route in Spanish, so that it is easier to understand for speakers of this language. For the time being, this update is only available for devices with an Android operating system. Google plans to bring this feature to iOS devices in the near future.
