Changes brought by Google Maps


Google Maps comes with new updates. Drivers are the main beneficiaries, especially drivers of electric cars.

Changes to Google Maps

New update introduces improved support for electric cars and the ability to recognize certain roads, and users have begun to notice these new features in the Google Maps application for Android devices, for now, international press notes.

One of the most notable additions is the feature dedicated to electric car drivers. In the new Android version, users can easily access nearby charging stations by simply tapping the corresponding filter button below the main search bar at the top of the screen. This makes it easy to locate and plan charging stops, similar to how you might find restaurants or gas stations in the app.

Second amendment brought by Google Maps concerns the way in which searched roads are displayed in the application. Previously, when searching for a road, the app would only display a red dot to indicate the location of that street. The new update changes this approach, now showing the entire length of the road highlighted in blue. This change provides a clearer view of the searched route and allows users to better understand where it starts and ends, as well as how much space it takes up on the map.

This function can be especially useful for those who want to get a complete picture of the route they are looking for and navigate more easily within it. At the same time, users can access any specific point on the road using the Street View function, to get more details and to orient themselves more precisely.

These two changes, although seemingly minor, have the potential to make Google Maps easier and more convenient to use, strengthening the application’s position as one of the most popular and useful in the field of navigation. It is not yet known whether iOS users will receive the same updates, but it is expected that these changes will eventually be implemented on devices running this operating system.
