Google informs that since the launch of Google Maps for mobile, it has hit a userbase milestone — more than 100 million people a month are now using Google Maps for mobile to get from point A to point B, find nearby places, and more. “With My Location, you can quickly find where you’re on the map with or without GPS. You can put your friends on the map with Latitude. Navigation even turns your phone into a free internet-connected navigation system with voice guidance and Street View imagery,” writes Vic.
With Place Pages, you can now pick a nearby place by browsing information such as opening hours and review snippets for the places around you. It’s easier than ever to find those places with Search by voice or new Places icon on Android.
