Google maps has a new feature. Now you can download the map for offline use. Latest update on Android gives users the option
to download fully functional maps of specific regions for offline use. Earlier, users were able to view only an area on a map offline. Now, users can search and navigate between all points of interest included in the region you have downloaded. This is extremely handy for the times you know you won’t have any phone reception (hello, underground commutes), or when you’re travelling abroad on holiday. Extra details, such as photos and user reviews of businesses or attractions won’t be included, but Google promises to keep updating the offline capabilities of the app.
