Google is rolling out the new Google Maps during the next few weeks for all users. Earlier these were in beta and users had an option to either use the new one or remain the old Google Maps.
The new Google Maps has a redesigned look with the major change being the map occupying the whole screen and not the two third screen as was the case previously.
New Google Maps were first unveiled at the developer conference held in May last year. The biggest problem faced by users during the beta phase was their slow loading speed which Google has subsequently addressed.
Google will most probably receive users backlash for switching them to new Google Maps but users can contact Google with their feedback for further improvements. Google expects these minor bumps and has said in a blog post:
“With any product redesign, there may be bumps along the road. We’re hoping that you’re as excited as we are to navigate uncharted territory in pursuit of the perfect map.”
