Google Maps Walking Directions Live

Google Maps walking directions had been spotted by some users before, and now they’re being rolled out for everyone, as Search Engine Roundtable reports. Try this directions search in New York, for instance, and you’ll see the “Walking” link on top activated (though this isn’t just restricted to US locations, as a test search in Germany showed). Google has the following disclaimer following their “beta” notice: “Use caution when walking in unfamiliar areas.” Uhm, OK.
