MapmyIndia has announced that its Android app now shows real-time traffic updates for select cities. The feature seems to have been made live in the last update, which was pushed on September 6 to the app; the company was probably removing any last minute kinks before officially revealing about the feature.

The cities for which you can now check real-time traffic data using MapmyIndia app are Delhi-NCR, Mumbai and Bengaluru. It is a surprisingly small number of cities and the company should have at least included traffic data for all tier-1 cities.
We checked out the feature on our phone just now and it seems to be working fine but overall the whole MapmyIndia app is too slow and seriously needs a revamp. Given the fact that Google Maps already offer traffic data for a lot more cities and along with free voice-guided navigation support, there is hardly any reason why anyone would want to use MapmyIndia app.
