During I/O 2015 Google unveiled that it is bringing a full offline mode to Google Maps by the end of this year! Google already made it possible to save specific maps for offline use, but this new change takes things much further.
While the offline feature is aimed at markets that might not have the best mobile data, this feature should reach all markets that Google Maps is available in. The offline mode will let you not only save maps, but you’ll be able to search for locations, get turn by turn voice direction, and much more. Basically anything you can do now, you’ll be able to do offline.
We’ll be sure to bring you more details about when offline Maps is coming as soon as we learn more!
