Google has been busy of late adding loads of new features to several of the company's mobile applications. The latest app to see a slew of new updates is Google Maps.
A few of the more useful features we found are the addition of offline map viewing with a new “Save map to use offline” feature. A new smart lane selection feature, so as Google says you'll never miss an exit again and Uber integration. Now, as long as you have the Uber app installed on your device, when you check public transit and walking directions, Uber will appear as an additional option with an estimated time.
One addition that we see as potentially helpful for all of us party geeks, are the new filters options. Here you can browse through restaurants, bars and hotels by opening hours, rating, price, and more—where available—to find just what you’re looking for, right when you need it. For those of you that are always misplacing their cars there is also a new option to save locations for later making it easier for you to track down the car or a recently visited location after a night on the town.
Check the official Google announcement for more details on the update, which is available now for your iOS and Android devices.
