Google Maps Update Makes Cities More Searchable

Google's latest update to its Maps app will help mobile users to better search for restaurants on Android and iOS and will also allow businesses owners to better control their listings.

Google’s new updates to its Maps app allow for more control for business owners along with more efficient restaurant searches and sharable directions.

The Google Maps Android update will now let business owners claim their listing pages to manage their information on Maps. Google has also made it easier to target restaurants based on food type, as the version 4.2.0 for iOS will allow users to filter restaurant searches based on cuisine.

The update also allows users to share directions via a drop-down menu in the top right corner of the app that sends turn-by-turn directions via SMS to their Google contacts within the app.

Directions can also be saved in phone calendars for later. Users can also add pins to the origin and destination during navigation.
