A new Google Maps arrived at the play Store recently. It is an update to the previous version of the excellent map service from Google.
But the updates did not roll out initially at a great pace to users, but now we're noticing a rollout increase. So if you haven't updated, you should checking for updates, in case you have turned off the automatic updates on your phone.
Talking of the update and the new features in the version, there is definitely faster navigation, also has route previews and a lot better traffic overviews as compared to the previous versions. Also there are improved Hotel Search results in the updated version, with sponsored rates and also booking links.
And also Google included a 'Tips and Tricks' option in the slideout menu, but it only redirects to the support page, so they may be adding some more things in future updates. Also many bugs have been fixed in this update.
