Google Maps now displays descriptions on the maps when you search

Shortly after the Google I/O keynote ended, Google pushed out an update to Google Maps to bring some new features to the free turn-by-turn navigation service. The change log this time is rather short, but the update does make it easier for you to search for places and know where to go.

According to Google, search results will appear on the map with descriptions so that you can now decide what you're looking for. Transit location will now show walking time and terrain view will give you a 3D landscape with orientation.

This is the latest update following a new revamped UI update that was pushed out last month.
