A new graph shows traffic levels throughout the day on the route you're traveling. The Yellow colour is to mark moderate traffic on the route at the particular time, and the Red colour shows the high traffic in on the way.

The feature has already been rolled out to Android users while iOS users will have to wait for an unknown span of time to use the feature.

Pretty neat, especially when the difference in bar heights in the chart is significant, indicating you will travel much faster within the time slot that Google has chosen for you.
