Google Maps Updated With New Look

Posted by · 8838 views · Translate
Google has announced a new look for Google Maps that features an updated color scheme and new icons.

First, we’ve updated the driving, navigation, transit and explore maps to better highlight the information most relevant to each experience (think gas stations for navigation, train stations for transit, and so on). We’ve also updated our color scheme and added new icons to help you quickly identify exactly what kind of point of interest you’re looking at. Places like a cafe, church, museum or hospital will have a designated color and icon, so that it’s easy to find that type of destination on the map. For example, if you’re in a new neighborhood and searching for a coffee shop, you could open the map to find the nearest orange icon (which is the color for Food & Drink spots).

Google says the changes will be rolling out over the next few weeks in all Google Products that incorporate Maps. After that, the design will make its way to apps, websites and experiences offered via the Google Maps API.

I was going to say the same thing but I guess it’s evident, to anyone who isn’t a bigot. Silicon Valley, California basically and their bigotry against Christianity.

Oh wow if you are so concerned about Christianity then maybe you should stop using all Silicon Valley products and go ask the Catholic church to make such awesome products, software and services. Oh wait you cannot because your church cannot do that other than sitting on their asses and giving useless sermons. Remember, it takes a bigot to call someone a bigot. So stop whining and go live in a cave.

Notice every religion gets their own icon except Christianity doesnt have its own, its combined with Temple. Wow, Google.

It doesn't match with iOS stock icons and design !!

Hopefully Google has fixed the "send route to iPhone" (from desktop machine) after more than a year of it deciding the route you had planned carefully was completely wrong.....
