Google has announced an update to its Google Maps app for iOS and Android that brings a new 'material design', restaurant reservations, and an Uber information card.

Over the next few days, when you open up Google Maps on your Android or iPhone, you’ll be greeted by bright colors and a fresh new design. This new look is all about creating surfaces and shadows that echo the real world; with Google Maps’ new material feel, layers and buttons come to life so you know just where to touch to get directions, recommendations and imagery.

Tapping on a place's info sheet will bring up photos, reviews, and more. If you're looking for a new place to dine or visit, you’ll see more to Explore at the bottom of your map.

Travelers deciding whether they should take an Uber or brave the frosty winds can now see estimates for Uber’s pickup time and price for their route in walking and transit directions in Google Maps. This option will appear if you have the Uber app installed, where available.

Is this something they're changing at the back end? There's no new Google maps App that I can see in the App Store.
