Google Maps updated its iOS app on Tuesday with new route and traffic features. According to Google, the update brings “faster access to navigation,” “tips and tricks” for beginning users, and support for Arabic and Hebrew.
Version 2.3.4’s navigation feature helps users better decide among various traffic and route options. The app now has a smaller map within the route selection screen, which lets people more easily compare directions based on traffic and other conditions. The “tips and tricks” section gives users advice on how to use the app and its various features, like turn-by-turn directions.
This update brings usability to a new market in Southwest Asia.
