Google is almost finished updating all its apps to Material Design. Previously, we have seen plenty of Google apps being updated to Material Design including the Play Store v5.0, Wallet v7.0, Gmail v5.0 and Google News and Weather.
Recently, the tech giant has updated Maps with Material Design, and it is the most beautiful update that Maps has ever received. The highlight for the new version is bold colors and textures.
Once you download and install the new version of Google Maps, you will be greeted by light and bright colors and a beautiful fresh design.
If you see a place on the map and you tap on it, a window will slide up showing information, photos and videos about that place. And newly added Material animations make everything better.
If you have decided to have a dinner outside, you can reserve a table using Google Map’s OpenTable feature. It is available only on the U.S. Also, if you are thinking about walking or taking the bus, consult first with Uber, thanks to Uber integration.
The icon is different too. Instead of the 3D logo that the old version has, the new Maps has a much cleaner and simpler icon.
The update has already rolled out and can be downloaded from the Play Store. But if it isn’t available for your phone yet, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. You can download Google Maps APK v9.0 direct link.
