The long-awaited update of Google Maps arrives on the Play Store

Almost two months after its presentation at Google I / O 2013, the substantial and long-awaited update of Google Maps finally lands on the Play Store.

The new version 7.0, whose passwords are simplicity and speed, presents a completely new and improved user interface. A search bar will always be visible at the top of the screen, in order to speed up the search for our destination.

Now that Google acquired the traffic app Waze, we expect this aspect of Maps is constantly being improved.

The update also brings with it a new way of exploring the premises nearby.
