Google Maps got a redesign

Google Maps is removing an upgrade.

The association pronounced in a blog post that it has updated driving, navigation, movement and try maps to improved prominence information that a association thinks will be many relevant. That means gas stations when you’re pushing or some-more prominently featured sight and train stations if you’re roving a rails or hopping on mass transit.

Google also pronounced that maps would get an updated tone intrigue with new icons combined to some-more simply brand places like a church, cafe, museum or sanatorium not only by their symbol, though also with a analogous tone to make it even easier to identify.

For example, if someone wanted to find a grill or cafeteria in a new neighborhood, they could open a Google Map app and find a nearest orange idol (the tone Google is regulating for food and splash spots).

Here’s a slideshow that explains Google’s tone scheme-themed designations and illustrates a company’s new iconography:
