  1. Google Maps will soon let you draw on a map to fix it Missing road? You can plot it yourself. Image: Google If you’ve ever been frustrated by a road simply not existing on Google Maps, the company’s now making it easier than ever to add it. Google will be updating its map editing experience to allow users to add missing roads and realign, rename or delete incorrect ones. It calls the experience “drawing,” but it’s closer to using the line tool in Microsoft Paint. The updated tool should be “rolling out over the coming
  2. You can now pay for parking directly from the Google Maps app in more cities While we’re all traveling a lot less nowadays, public parking is still a part of many people’s daily lives. Today, Google Maps is launching a new feature to make parking a bit easier, and a bit safer, too. Announced on The Keyword, Google Maps is adding support for parking payments, thanks to direct integration with Passport and ParkMobile, two parking solutions providers. As seen below, you’ll be able to tap “Pay for Parking” directly from the Maps app, with Google Pay handling th
  3. Google Maps is rolling out incredibly accurate street-level details in these 4 cities Crosswalks, pedestrian islands, park pathways, and more One of my small pet peeves when using Google Maps in a new city or country is the lack of crosswalk details for walking directions. The app might tell me it takes twenty minutes to go from one point to another, but it could realistically be a lot more than that when you factor in crosswalks, especially if those aren't exactly on my path but require a little detour. Google is now starting to remedy that by rolling out super a
  4. Google Maps on Android Automotive gets better at planning EV charging stops The two cars that Android Automotive currently powers are both electric. Ahead of Google’s dashboard experience coming to more vehicles, the built-in Google Maps app is improving how you find EV charging stations. Charging opportunities are an important consideration when planning trips given the range of current electric cars and the availability of stations being heavily dependent on where you’re traveling. On shorter trips, Maps will let you select from a list of ava
  5. Hey Google, where can I get vaccinated? — Google Maps will soon show COVID vaccine locations Vaccine site listings will show access requirements and appointment info. Enlarge / Vaccine info in Google search. Google The rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine means a ton of people are soon going to be looking for vaccination sites. As usual, Google wants to be at the center of getting people where they're going, and in a new blog post Google says it will start loading Search and Maps with information on vaccination
  6. Google Maps ‘2020 Timeline update’ recaps your travels trends One of the more useful features made possible by enabling Location History on Android is the Google Maps Timeline. In addition to a monthly recap, Google Maps is sending out a “2020 Timeline update” that is obviously impacted by the last 12 months, but still provides useful local stats. COVID-19 changed the world’s travels in 2020, and how many places people were able to visit. If you were able to travel this year, you can see some of the places you’ve been with the help of this automated Timeline email
  7. Google Maps gets a COVID-19 layer View COVID data as easily as you view traffic or satellite data. Tap the layer menu in the top right and press "COVID-19 Info" In the US you can zoom in for state-level data... ... or zoom in even more for county data Google Maps is getting a COVID-19 overlay, meaning soon you'll be able to see pandemic data as easily as you can view satellite or traffic data. Once the rollout hits your device, you'll be able to press th
  8. Scammers have found a new avenue for defrauding unsuspecting victims: Google Maps. The Google-run online map service lets users submit changes and corrections to listings — so would-be fraudsters are changing the contact details listed for banks on the app. Then, when unsuspecting bank customers ring up what they think is their financial institution, the scammers extract their private banking details and use it to empty their accounts. Police in Maharashtra, India, put out a warning about the scam after hearing of multiple cases in the last month, as earlie
  9. Now called "Live View," it works on recent iPhone and Android devices. One of Google's coolest apps, by far, has yet to see the light of day for most users. I'm talking about Maps' live AR walking directions -- now known as Live View -- that shows you via a Pokémon-like visual overlay how to get to your destination. Now, Google has announced that it's rolling Live View out in much wider beta to modern Android and iOS phones equipped with ARCore or ARKit. Engadget had a chance to test the app in an early preview in
  10. Google Maps doesn't want you walking around in AR Goodbye, Mr Fox. Google's dropping the whimsy from its AR Maps. The augmented reality fox is gone from Google Maps. There's a reason for that. Google's AR-enabled Maps app was first teased at last year's I/O, introducing a fox that helped you find your way when you held up your phone to look at the world. Google Maps' AR walking navigation feature is now available to anyone with a Pixel phone, but the fox is gone. The reason is related to the ways Google is looking to mak
  11. Google Maps is flooded with 'millions' of fake business listings A new WSJ report estimates millions of Google listings contain false information. If you've ever tried to find a locksmith on Google in a pinch, this may not surprise you. Turns out Google Maps is filled with millions of scam operations that are impersonating real businesses, according to a new report from the Wall Street Journal. There are currently an estimated 11 million fake business listings on Google Maps, and new listings with false phone numbers or addresses arrive ev
  12. Except where it's illegal, like France and Germany. After running limited tests in the US and elsewhere, Google Maps is rolling out speed limit warnings and both fixed and mobile radar locations in over 40 countries, Google has confirmed to TechCrunch. The features are borrowed from Google-owned Waze and will appear in the iOS and Android Maps. The speed limit signs are located in the bottom corner of Maps and the radar and photo radar traps appear as icons on the virtual roads. The features are availa
  13. The Waze features keep on coming Google has quietly added a live speedometer into Google Maps, allowing you to keep an eye on your speed alongside local speed limits. Android Police reports that the feature can be turned on and off from the app’s Navigation Settings menu in Settings, after which it will display in the bottom left corner of the app during a car journey. The feature is just one of many that have trickled into Google Maps after first appearing in the Waze app, which Google bought way back in 2013. We’ve already seen speed limits come to the ap
  14. New Google Maps Feature Will Automatically Delete Location History A future Google Maps update will include new functionality to automatically remove location history if you want it to. At this point, Google Maps keeps track of your location for increased convenience, as you can just look into your history to easily navigate to a specific destination. As a heavy Google Maps user, I can confirm this feature comes in super-handy especially when using the app behind the wheel because you can easily set the GPS to a previous location much faster. However, there are us
  15. SYDNEY (AFP) - Tourism operators in Australia's vast outback say wild inaccuracies in Google Maps are making remote hot spots appear out of reach, deterring people from visiting the region. A number of businesses promoting their small towns as remote tourist destinations in the north-eastern state of Queensland complain of cases where a typical six-hour drive has been estimated by Google Maps to take up to 11 hours. The complaints prompted the Queensland government to write to Google, which on Wednesday (Jan 16) promised to look into the issue.
  16. Google Maps gets a new icon and more tabs to celebrate 15th anniversary 15 years of trusting Google for directions Google Maps is turning 15 years old, and to celebrate, Google is rolling out a new icon for the service along with a slightly redesigned app and a couple of new features. The biggest change here might be the icon itself — gone is the classic map intersection icon in favor of a new Google-hued pin on a white background, which more closely matches Google’s other application branding. The Google Maps app itself is also
  17. Spammers continue to abuse Google Maps to promote scammy pirate links. These 'treasures' show up through the maps feature from where they are picked up by search engines. This can be pretty effective, it seems, as some links are getting thousands of views. Google Maps is a wonderful tool that helps millions of people find their way around the world. Some would be literally lost without it. Generally speaking, Maps is used to navigate the real world. However, spammers are also using it to guide prospective pirates on the Internet.
  18. Google Maps adds more color to distinguish terrain, will bring more detail to streets Google is bringing a new update to Maps that adds more color to distinguish between terrain. The feature builds on the app’s current color coding and introduces more granularity to the kind of terrain, on the screen. The colors allow users to distinguish places like “tan, arid beaches and deserts from blue lakes, rivers, oceans and ravines”. The changes can also identify snow on mountains and the density of greenery on a map. Left: Before | Right: After T

  20. Google Maps for Android redesigns search shortcuts by adding a carousel Last month, Google added more detailed voice guidance to Maps for visually impaired users. The firm also introduced a new capability to report road incidentson iPhones. Now, Google is testing a carousel of search shortcuts beneath the main search field, replacing the previous coloured grid which was accessible by swiping up the "Explore" sheet.

  22. Google's decade-old feature used in Chrome to reduce browsing history is now available for location services in Android. After announcing it twice in the past year, Google is keeping its promise and unrolling Incognito mode for Maps for its Android users, the company confirmed in a blog post. Modeled after the same tool that can be used in Chrome since 2008 to visit web pages without any browsing history being recorded within the platform, the new feature will prevent users' activity in Maps from being saved to their Google account.
