Fans of the Maps app on Windows 10 will have something to look forward to with its latest update. Now, you can see what the roads are like either to home or work (or whatever locations you've labeled as such) and even take a gander at realtime traffic from recently viewed roadside cameras. Just hit the traffic icon from the app's menu, according to the Windows 10 blog, and you're there. What's more, the app will follow your preferences for a night or day mode within the app and apparently change themes wholesale. Sure, Google Maps has had most of these features for a bit, but it's good to see that the Windows faithful have a few new toys to play around with.

But wait, there's more. The operating system now offers native support for USB Audio 2.0 too. It isn't quite finished yet, though. "This is an early version of the driver that does not have all features enabled," according to Microsoft. For example, you can't record with it yet, only playback is available. There are a handful of other (minor) system-wide updates too, so hit the source link for more info on those.
