Google Maps getting offline navigation starting today

Google Maps

#Google has today announced one of the biggest updates to #GoogleMaps mobile with the ability to use offline navigation while not being connected to the internet. This is crucial if the users happen to be traveling to a new place where there might not be a functional internet connection. Naturally, for this feature to work, customers will have to download maps of a specific location beforehand.

The feature works just as advertised and customers stand to benefit a lot from it. Google claims that performance of Maps in general will be better as well thanks to this new feature, which is something to look forward to for the customers. The update should be rolling out anytime soon on your mobile devices, but make sure you head over to the Play Store and check in the My Apps section for an update notification.
