Overcast’s new Smart Resume feature has allowed me to turn voice turn-by-turn directions back on in Google Maps. Driving is easier (and safer – I don’t look down for next turn). I swear I’m not just saying this either. Honest truth.

"bundles include"
"available bundled"

Never say *required*, which of course they admit via DM. Shameful. pic.twitter.com/ushIBewcYL
