Google Maps v9.61 Introduces Two Wheeler Mode, Reserve with Google
Google Maps is among one of the most popular applications created by Google. Millions of users make use of the app every day to find directions or to check out a locality, etc. The app has received several updates over the years. The latest update comes today as Google Maps v9.61 is all set to roll out.
Google has been frequent when it comes to updating their Maps app. Only a couple of days ago we talked about how the Google Maps v9.60 brought in changes such as Picture in Picture mode and Video Submissions. Less than a week after that update, Google has introduced Maps v9.61. Let us take a closer look at this new update in detail –
Google Maps v9.61: What’s New
This update to the app brings out two major changes –
Two Wheeler Mode
Of late, Google has been asking a number of map users (the writer of this article included) if they frequently drive a two-wheeler. As of now we are not clear what Google plans to bring in form of actual changes, but we know they are working on a two-wheeler mode. Lines of code from the app have also indicated that and it is possible that Google Maps v9.61 would soon add a new mode for navigation fine-tuned for two-wheeler riders.
Reserve with Google
A feature which Google announced back in July, Reserve with Google allows the users to make bookings and reservations at spas, salons, gyms and other similar places directly from Google Maps. While that feature was announced a while back, it has started to roll out with the Google Maps v9.61 update. Users would be able to make bookings and reservations for services such as : Barre, Dancing, Facial and Skincare, Haircut, Massage, Pilates, Waxing & Threading, and Yoga.
Update your Google Maps app to the latest version and do try out all these new features!
