Over the years, Google has regularly updated Google maps in a bid to make application more useful. For instance, for a long time, the popular application has suggested users the best route to take in order to avoid traffic on the road. Earlier this year, map added another functionality to remind drivers about the location they have parked their cars. While we are not getting any new feature, Google has updated the map application to give a completely new look.
News related to the latest changes come via official post on the Google’s blog where the company has noted that it has made a large number of changes to the existing map application. In addition to changes such as driving mode, navigation, transit along with others, the company has added new color in the map to highlight different information on the map. The company wrote, “We’ve also updated our color scheme and added new icons to help you quickly identify exactly what kind of point of interest you’re looking at. Places like a cafe, church, museum or hospital will have a designated color and icon, so that it’s easy to find that type of destination on the map.”
If you were wondering if the latest changes will be coming to other applications that use Google Map, the company revealed that it will apply the latest changes to other products and services that use Google Map.
