The new features were first spotted by Android Police. To enable the feature, head to the Settings panel and look for a new toggle which reads ‘Wi-Fi only’. Clicking on the option will disconnect the Maps app from your mobile data. However, Google via a pop up will notify you that the Maps app may still use a small amount of data during the process. Upon switching the ‘Wi-Fi only’ mode, a small bar will appear on the top of the screen for as long as the switch is turned on.
