Google added Public Alerts to Search and Maps for Android

Google’s Public Alert feature is added to Google Search and Maps for Android. Google Public Alerts is a useful feature which displays about natural disasters and emergencies like storms and earthquakes. It will help users to stay up-to-date with important information about disasters and emergencies, especially the emergency situations about natural disaster Sandy. The addition of Public Alerts was not planned by Google until last week but when the Sandy hits north eastern US on Monday, Google announced on their blog post to add Public Alerts in Google Search and Maps. It is available in browser on Google Maps for Android and Google Now for Android devices running Jellybean 4.1. Currently, the service is available in English for US but Google is working on it to expand the services. “We were planning on announcing the new features in a few days, but wanted to get them out as soon as possible so they can be helpful to people during this time,” Nigel Snoad, Google Crisis Response product manager, wrote in the post. “This is part of our continuing mission to bring emergency information to people when and where it is relevant.” “We’re able to gather relevant emergency safety information thanks to a strong network of partners, including NOAA and USGS,” says Snoad. “Their commitment to open standards like the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) is what makes this all possible. We’ve also developed partnerships to bring you even more relevant alerts in the future, including local emergency data from Nixle.” So, now you will be able to get all Public Alerts on your Android via Search and Map. Check out this new feature and stay up-to-date with all important information regarding disasters and emergencies. Stay tuned to...
