In an effort to inform its users on brightly lit streets, Google Maps will launch the 'Lighting' feature to help users avoid dark or poorly light streets to increase their safety. While the feature is still in testing, it is unclear whether this feature will be available worldwide or limited to specific industries. Moreover, it has not been announced how Google will stay up-to-date or even source if the streets are well light or not.
This is not the only safety feature Google Maps has launched in recent years. In June 2019, the tech giant launched the 'Stay Safe' in India to notified users when their driver has taken a different route than expected.
