Google Maps continues to present itself as the most popular and useful navigation application. However, its version for Android has been gaining and losing some features over time. Now the Mountain View company brings back (finally!) A very popular feature, border presentation.
Better yet, the new implementation comes even more functional and practical. When you search for a country, district or even city, you'll be able to see all its boundaries at a glance. You will see the name searched in the center in red, as well as its borders outlined in red. All the surrounding area will have a gray layer to highlight the marked area.
From what I have been able to experiment, it seems that with regard to cities and other more specific areas are not yet fully updated in UK’s territory. However, it will be expected that over the next few weeks Google will proceed with a complete upgrade of all locations.
Google Maps will help you see 'cross-border' again
It appears that the Mountain View company is proceeding in a phased manner with this new implementation. Even major cities like London did not exhibit this feature while testing. On the other hand, some places that presented their borders eventually returned randomly to the previous format.
This is a feature that has been around in the Web version for a long time, and has never been removed. Although the company has decided to remove it from the Android app, we welcome its return. Especially with the improvements implemented.
The new implementation will be yet another tool that will add value to the already extremely useful Google Maps application. Many times you may not even think about it, but being able to see the borders of a city or district can be very helpful.
