Google Maps celebrates 15 years and celebrates the date with several news

This week Google Maps celebrates 15 years of existence. Over the decade and a half, this service has become a powerful ally for travelers and even for visiting new restaurants and other places.

To celebrate this anniversary, Google will redesign the Maps icon and also redesign the interface of its mobile application. Starting with the icon, it is now simpler and more colorful on the shape of the clip that usually shows us the locations.

Google Maps application facilitates access to the most important information

Now looking at the Google Maps application interface, the giant decided to modify the categories we usually find in the bottom bar. From now on we will find the categories Explore, Travel, Saved, Contributions and Updates.

The first two categories are already well known to users and will continue to provide us with the information we are used to. In the new “Saved” tab, we will have quicker access to the places we have already visited.

Google Maps categories

The “Contributions” tab will focus mainly on the community vein that the application has gained lately. Sharing and consulting information about certain places has never been easier. Finally, we have the category “Updates” which will be an information feed to discover new places or learn more about companies in the vicinity.

With these five categories, Google wants to highlight many of the new features that Maps has received in recent times. Instead of hiding them in the application’s settings, they will be there in plain view.

All the news described here start to reach Android and iOS users today. On this side, I still haven’t received the update, but it will certainly be a matter of time.

More news will come to Google Maps soon

For March, Google promises improvements in sharing traffic information. These data will include information such as the ambient temperature of transport or accessibility for wheelchairs.

Google Maps will also simplify the way it illustrates places of interest to us. Instead of using the full 3D map, the application will show just a simple photo of the location.
