Today, at the I/O conference, Google has officially announced their biggest and newest update to Google maps. The new maps come with a lot of new features and they will always adapt to your needs.
The most comprehensive map, now built for you
- The new Google Maps draws you a tailored map for every search and click you make. So whatever you’re trying to find or wherever you’re trying to go, you’ll always have a map highlighting the things that matter most.
Discover more with every click
- The entire map is now interactive. Clicking anywhere will focus the map on that location and show you helpful things, like related places and the best ways to get there.
Dive into your world
- From outer space down to the streets, the new Google Maps gathers all the imagery of a location into one spot, making it easy to explore your world from every angle.
Find the best way there
- You can now compare multiple modes of transportation right on the map to find the best way there and the best way home.
A map that gets better with use
- As you search the map, star places you like and leave reviews, the map starts to adapt and can suggest things like restaurants you might enjoy or the quickest way home. In other words, the more you use the new Google Maps, the more helpful it becomes.
The updated maps will come in the near future, but if you want to try them before the official launch you can request an invite here. An updated Google Maps app for iOS will be released later this summer….
