The latest update for Google Maps is here and as you might have guessed it already, it brings the new Material Design to the app on Android and iOS. The app adds a flatter design and tidy animations that is all a part of Google’s new design language. However, that’s not all since the update also brings some new features to the app.
First of all, Google Maps now comes with deep Uber integration that shows estimated pickup time, as well as the estimated fare based on the directions you’re currently hunting in the transit. You can also compare the fare of the cab service with that of public transport and decide what suits your purse. Uber integration will require Uber app to be downloaded on the device though. You will also be able to make reservations in restaurants thanks to OpenTable integration. Users in the US won’t even have to leave the app to do the same.
Google has promised that the update will start rolling out in the coming days, although we can see a new version of the app sitting in the Play Store already.
