A new trial version of the Google Maps application is one of the most used worldwide of all the Mountain View companies. We indicate the most interesting improvements that are included and that everything points to that they will arrive to all the users in a short time. Also provided is the corresponding APK download link.

The new version that arrives at Google Maps is 9.68, and there are some new features that are evidence that all users see as they are fully implemented. Others, are present but may be delayed since, according to the source of information, they are not yet included in the development in a complete and functional way.

Safe new features in Google Maps 9.68

The first thing that we have been able to know is that indoor maps, which are increasingly used for their accuracy of both the internal structure and existing businesses, improve their implementation in Google Maps. Now in the new version of this development, accessing them is much easier since it is more intuitive to locate them. They are located in a more prominent place in the information of a location and in addition, the map in question is much more expensive to visualize.

Aside, there are two new options that are included in Google Maps 9.68 which is sure to reach all users. On the one hand, there is the inclusion of regular routes, a list in which appear those that are used constantly and that are deployed as development aid in case it is one of those that you want to use. This option is activated by default, but this can be changed in the Settings. The second of the options is an addition to the window that appears when you use the GPS indications with Google Maps and minimize the development. Then the PiP (Picture-in-Picture) mode enters and now, a message appears indicating that dragging the box downwards disappears, something that many do not know how to do it.

Other new options in Google Maps 9.68

Next, we leave a list in which we indicate the new options that have been seen in the trial version of the development of the Mountain View company that we talked about, but that is not completely sure that they are part of the final version of Google Maps 9.68:

  • Improved implementation of electric charging points
  • Improvements when using maps offline, especially notifications for use and download
  • Messages of lack of GPS coverage more friendly and clear, both text and voice
  • Incision of possible costs when using third-party services such as Uber
  • Information messages optimized for lack of WiFi connection
  • Full-screen editor of the reviews that are made of locations in Google Maps

Download the APK of the new version of Google Maps

If you want to install the new version of Google development, you can do it manually using the APK file that is available at the following link. It is signed by the Mountain View company, so there is no danger once you click on it and follow the steps that appear on the screen.
