With gesture navigation increasingly rooted in Android, there is also a need for applications to adapt to this kind of interactivity. That's why Google has moved the navigation of its services from side to bottom.
The next app to test this design change seems to be Google Maps. As 9to5Google advances, several Android users in the United States and Spain are already seeing the new design on Android.
As you can see from the shared images below, this change makes the “hamburger” button on the left side of the search disappear, and adds two new tabs in the bottom bar.
"Locations" and "Publish" appear in bottom bar
In the bottom bar is the “Explore”, “Travel” and “For You” which now seems to be called “Latest”. To these are added the "Places" and the "Publication". This will make it easier for you to contribute to site analysis and photos.
This seems to be the new paradigm for Google applications, at a time when gesture navigation is flourishing. Judging by first impressions, this seems to be simpler navigation on devices that are getting bigger and bigger.
Please note that for now this is a design that has reached only a few users. Google is still testing it, and may still make changes until it reaches users globally.
