Unfortunately, Google is not yet able to show the current status of the lights.
Therefore, you will not be able to see if the light is about to change – or if it has recently turned red. However, as 5G mobile networks become more common, it's possible that smart cities – with a network of connected traffic lights, zebra crossings and more – can link to mapping solutions like Google Maps and Apple Maps in the future .
Google appears to be gradually testing the system with users in the United States. The Android-obsessed blog Droid-Life reported seeing traffic lights in West Des Moines.
