The company announced today that it is changing the way that it manages its mapping data.
Instead of providing it as a separate Google app, it will now offer Google Maps as a standalone service.
The change is part of Google’s effort to provide more reliable mapping data for its users, and it could mean that people will be able to more easily get to their destination in the future.
Google Maps will also offer more features and capabilities for those who are using it as part of their commute.
The company also announced a slew of other new features, including support for Apple’s iOS 6 and iOS 7, a revamped Maps app, and the ability to view GPS locations of nearby cities and places on Google Maps.
Google has a number of new features in the pipeline, including the ability for people to create their own custom maps, as well as a new “drive and share” feature for businesses that want to offer drivers directions to nearby businesses.
More to come.
