Google has updated its Maps app for iPhone and Android. The new app now embraces the Material Design style. Google is slowly updating all its apps to redesign their user interface with Material Design philosophy.
The company recently updated the Drive, Gmail, Calendar apps to add the new design language. The same design pattern is followed in the new Inbox app which the company released last month. Besides the revamped user interface, the Maps app is also getting a new feature called Explore.
This will allow users to get suggestions and reviews about things they can do in the area. It already has integration with OpenTable in the United States, letting people make a restaurant reservation right from the app. It also integrates with Uber that would allow users to call for an Uber directly from Google Maps.
