How To Add Speed Limits to Google Maps App

People who travel a lot usually rely on the Google Maps app on their smartphone for directions. It provides useful information such as your location, the map of the surrounding area, and the time you are expected to arrive at your destination just to name a few. One feature that people are requesting is the speed limit information. This was initially available in two places only last year,San Francisco Bay Area in the US and Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, and until now it has not been rolled out to all users.

If you want to add the speed limits to Google Maps app you can do so right now by using a third party app which will display the information as an overlay over the Google Maps app. Unfortunately, this will only work on Android devices and not on iPhones.
