Google Maps gets a new look

Google Maps will now take into consideration what you're currently doing, and show you important bits of information that will be helpful in that particular instance. After this update, the Google Maps will now show your real-time event updates. That means gas stations when you're driving or more prominently featured train and bus stations if you're riding the rails or hopping on mass transit. We've also updated our color scheme and added new icons to help you quickly identify exactly what kind of point of interest you're looking at.

It's nearly hard to imagine these days how we've managed to survive the past decades without Google Maps and related services like Waze.

The company mentioned in its official blog post that it will update Google Maps with a new look that "better reflects your world, right now". The feature will highlight cafe, church, museum, or hospital not only by their symbols but also by their corresponding colors.

Google is rolling out a new look for Points of Interest (POI) on Google Maps. For example, if you are in a neighbourhood you are not familiar with, and wish to find a coffee shop, just open the map and find the nearest orange icon, which is the colour for Food & Drink spots.

Over the next few weeks, these changes will be rolled out to all Google products that incorporate Google Maps, including the Assistant, Search, Earth, and Android Auto.

Google says the new style will eventually also appear in apps, websites and experiences offered by companies that use the Google Maps APIs.
