Maps update rolling out to more users this evening

Google Maps has been updated, and it seems like this evening the staged rollout is picking up steam. More folks are getting the update, which brings things like bug fixes and stability improvements — things we always love to see — but also some improvements to core features. The full change log:

  • Faster access to navigation, complete with route and traffic overview
  • Improved hotel search results with sponsored rates and booking links
  • Tips and Tricks available in the side menu
  • Bug fixes

We've been told that users are seeing faster and more accurate re-routing in navigation, which matches up well with the changes listed. You can check to see if it's your turn to update right from the Google Play app, or simply check the Google Play button above.
