The Google Maps app has many new features and enhancements. Recently, we learned about a new AI-enabled feature that can help you navigate better. The app can now remind you who shared their location with you.
Some recent changes include allowing you to pay parking and transit fees from the app, searching for electric vehicle charging stations on Android Automotive, more accurate road details (London, NYC, SF, Tokyo), and reduced the community feeds to Explore tab.
More modifications and enhancements are in the works. The last thing we studied was the compass. It is not new. It was gone for a while, but now it is back.
Many Google Maps users have asked about this feature. The compass is ready once again and believes to be more reliable this time around. We’re not sure what’s going on, but you don’t have to worry if you’re still interested in this navigation feature.
It must be far more accurate. Those Problems reported by users two years ago should now address. There are still particular uses for this feature. People still open it for more information about a place.
Google Maps Version 10.62 must already have a compass. Older map versions can also get it. We hope reliability and accuracy are better. There were initial reports that it was still not pointing in the right direction. We’ll see what else Google has to say about this update.
