Google Shows Off An Impressive Upcoming Update for Google Maps
Although Google is shutting down Google Latitude
, Google Maps is still alive and strong, and Google has just teased us with an interesting upcoming update for Google Maps that will affect Android and iOS devices alike!
The tease includes a new Explore feature that allows users to find places by category, such as Drink, Shop, Play, Sleep, and more. Drink would obviously take users to a restaurant, while Shop would find stores, Play would find fun things to do, and Sleep would find hotels; all locally, of course.
The update also promises to improve navigation, thanks to Google's acquisition of Waze
, users of the upcoming Google Maps update will be able to see reports of road problems and can re-route their paths to their destination if a faster route is available.
Also built-in will be full tablet support, which will be great for users of Android tablets and iPads. The update will even bring the ability to read about reviews and offers for places around you.
