|FI||I think this topic comes up every so often on the show. How to revive the time to leave notification which used to come from Google now. |
The one on my screenshot is from maps and is "time to leave" under settings >notifications > getting around.
I don't see it much but I think that's because it only comes up when it's actually time to leave instead of the old Google now which would give more warning!
