Air pollution is a global issue, and it is a serious concern in India as well. Millions of people around the world have been affected by air pollution, which has a direct impact on their health. Therefore, it is important to be aware of the air quality in your vicinity, as well as the places you intend to visit. 

Google recently added Air Quality Index (AQI) data to its Maps application, which allows users to check the air quality in their area, as well as in the places they plan to visit.

How to use Google Maps to check the air quality:
