Mobile Google Maps will get an improved interface
|The XDA Devolopers portal reported that some users of the Google Maps mobile app have updated the interface. The company has made important improvements related to the usability of the software product. |
First, the upper section of the screen, where the fields for entering route points are located, has received a rounded shape and is now a small rectangle. The font style has changed. Thanks to the creation of a more compact appearance of the route section, the visibility area of the map has increased, which is also an undoubted plus.
Secondly, the section with the choice of the type of transport and the method of travel (car, bicycle, taxi or on foot) is moved from the top to the bottom when the route is built. The selection of items is now performed in a list with vertical scrolling, rather than in a small horizontal bar. In the lower panel, you can also choose the best route option. Such solutions are made specifically for the convenience of working in the application on devices with a large screen.
At the moment, the update is not yet available to a wide range of users. Most likely, Google is testing it selectively at random.
In addition, Google has added a split screen for navigation: at the top is the Google Street View section, and at the bottom is a map with the user's location. This feature is spreading in waves among all Google Maps users on Android.
