Here is an overview of the upcoming update:

  • New Design: With the new design you get more space for the actual maps available and less obtrusive pins for restaurants and landmarks.
  • Places: places such as restaurants or bars can search better and offer more information and expert opinions of restaurant critics, such as Yelp and Zagat.
  • Navigation:Live updating events such as congestion, road closures or accidents are now listed on the map. Google can then offer alternatives to your current route and time saving option. 
  • Improved space and earth maps.
