After launching the new Google Maps this summer, Google took to heart all the feedback it received and found a way to improve the service further. Google is announcing new updates to Google Maps today. Apparently one of the most requested features was directions for multiple directions. It isn't surprising though, as we've already found ourselves having a hard time finding the most accurate direction whenever we're exploring a new city.
The new feature, which Google says will be rolling out today, allows users to click a plus (+) button to add more directions within a route. "When you’re exploring a new city, find the best way to museums, historic squares, and other attractions by dragging and dropping your destinations in the order that works for you," says Florian Goerisch, a product manager for Google Maps.
Google Maps is also getting some deep integration with Google Now, as it now lets you check your flight, hotel, and restaurant reservations on the app itself. Simply search for your airport on Google Maps and it will automatically display your itineraries. This is sweet, considering that you no longer need to manually check your plans. Google says that this particular feature is currently rolling out to Google Maps users in the U.S. (English language only).
Lastly, the update now lets you view exciting events in a particular place. Whether it's a Rihanna concert or a basketball game, Google Maps will show you where the fun is.
