Google Maps is one of the most powerful tools available on your smartphone. It can help you get to your destination, find places to get gas or eat, see remote locations at ground level, view satellite and terrain features and so much more.
But with the latest round of updates, Google Maps just got even more powerful with updates that gives the app a much cleaner look, feel and functionality.
Here are some of the new features:
Redesign: You'll notice the text is bigger, bolder, and easier to read without having to zoom in.
Decluttered: Unnecessary features have been removed for a cleaner look. Road outlines have disappeared. Combine that with the bigger text, you can find what you're looking for with less distractions.
Areas of Interest: These areas will be shaded in orange and you can zoom in and tap to get details about that specific location. Areas of interest are chosen by an algorithm and highlight restaurants, popular bars and shops.
Color Scheme: Subtle changes have been made to the color codes, which you can see in the diagram below.
