The biggest change to Google Maps in recent years is now available to all users
The biggest change to Google Maps in recent years is now available to all users.
Last week, Google announced the redesign of Maps in its 15th anniversary.
And now those designs and features are now available to Android and iOS users.
Following this redesign, the app now has 5 tabs instead of 3 below which include Explore, Commute, Seaweed, Contribute and Updates.
In the Contribute tab, people will be able to provide Google with local details such as traffic conditions, while the Updates tab will tell you locations via local travel guides or articles.
Now in the Explore section, it will be possible to find the most prominent places around you while in the Commute tab you can set up your usual routes.
It will also be possible to know about temperature, accessibility and security of certain rides in the Commute tab, but currently, not all options are available, but they will be able to reach the customers next month.
Apart from this, the feature live-view featuring Augmented Reality technology will start reaching consumers in March or April.
A new feature Transit Acrobat is also being introduced that will inform people about the transit status of public transit shareholders.
The logo and icons of the Google app changed with the announcement of Google and are now in the form of mapping pins of Google’s distinctive colours.
It is understood that over the past few years, Google has tried to make Maps as an information hub rather than a navigation tool, namely hotel booking details with transliteration features, food delivery and airlines.
