See what traffic congestion is like on the roads with the Yandex.Maps widget without having to launch the app. If you’re a resident of Moscow, Saint Petersburg, or Kiev, you can view the traffic forecast several hours in advance. You can see the current general traffic score for more than 30 major cities elsewhere in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, and Turkey. Switching to Yandex.Maps and plotting your journey is possible with just one touch.
In the widget’s settings you can add your home and work addresses so that you always know how long it will take on the road. If you already added these addresses to Traffic on the yandex.ru homepage, you just need to sign in on the widget.
You can customize the Yandex.Maps widget to fit four sizes: 1x1, 2x2, 4x2, or 4x3. It can be changed right on the main screen. Choose from a compact traffic light, a medium-sized traffic forecast, or a full-sized map where colored lines mark congestion on specific streets.
Thanks to all your feedback, you can now:
• Select a dark background for the Yandex.Maps widget
• Change the widget size to 2x2
• Choose whether to display the traffic forecast
• Control how frequently you get data updates
In addition, the widget is more economical in its battery usage, and its stability has improved on many devices. If you still have problems with the Yandex.Maps widget, please send in feedback about which model you’re using to [email protected]
