Google Maps for iPhone now includes location sharing, widgets and a dark mode

The second feature gives you the most important travel information you need as fast as possible. The new “Nearby Traffic” widget shows live traffic conditions in your location, so you don’t need to sweat being late to an appointment, school, work, or any place you’re off to because you can see it all with just a glance. In addition, you can search Google Maps directly from the Google Maps widget, so finding the best restaurant to eat at in your area is as simple as a tap. In order to install either of these widgets, touch and hold a widget or an empty area on your home screen until your apps jiggle. Then, tap the “+” button in the upper-left corner, search for and tap the Google Maps app, swipe to select the widget you want, tap Add Widget, tap Done, and voila — a brand new widget to make your life a little easier.

Google Maps has just released three new upgrades that will delight Apple users. Google Maps for iOS received an upgrade last week that will make your commute much smoother. The three new features are improved location sharing, more efficient information retrieval, and giving your eyes a rest when they actually need it. The first feature enables users to share their current position within the iMessage app. So, instead of saying, “Be there in five minutes,” for 20 minutes straight, if you’re messaging a buddy when you’ll be meeting up with them, you may really be accurate. To use this function, open iMessage and touch the Google Maps icon. Your location is shared instantaneously for one hour.

And speaking of easy, if you experience screen fatigue, low battery, or just like to make your phone look a little darker and more mysterious, you can soon switch to dark mode on Google Maps, much like you can do with other apps and through your iOS settings. In order to turn it on, head to your Settings, tap on dark mode, then select, “On.” Dark mode will roll out to users in the coming weeks.
