Google Maps for Mobile Now Contains Major Landmarks

Google Maps remains to be one of most popular apps as the search engine giant continues to add new features to the application. In order to make it easier for users to find landmarks in a given area, Google Maps now contains small bubbles featuring different structure icons.

If you have used Google Maps, you already know that the app traditionally marked different destinations with small points of interest markers that makes it significantly easier to find them on the app. Interestingly, the latest landmark bubbles can be found in major cities around the world. While the small points of markers are relatively small, the landmarks are moving away from that design.

Instead of using small markers, major landmarks are identified with larger bubbles that stand out from other markers. While the feature is available in the major cities around the world, it’ll be interesting to see if the company brings the feature to other cities around the world.

Although the new icons are available for both iOS and Android devices, Google is rolling the feature out on a gradual basis. As a result, it might be a while before you start seeing the new version of the landmark icons in your Google Maps app.
