Google Maps gains improved photo viewer and rental car information in v9.10 update
We may all be waiting for Maps for Android to receive offline navigation functionality, but Google has just published an update that will help tide us over in the meantime. The update to version 9.10, which is now rolling out to the Play Store, brings rental car information and an improved photo viewer.
For starters, if you happen to have a rental car tied to your Google account, you’ll now be able to view that information when you search for either the pick-up or drop-off location. Maps will give you all of your vital information, such as your reservation number, time of reservation, type of car and more. This seems like one of those features that should have been baked in to Maps some time ago, but wasn’t for some reason.
Google has also improved the photo viewer in the Maps app, which now allows you to view multiple photos at a time when searching for locations with photos. Google has taken more of a gallery approach this time around, as opposed to the old way of showing just one picture at a time. In addition, the “Your Places” screen is getting a bit of a design revamp, and the “shake to send feedback” setting is now disabled by default.
The update is rolling out now in the Google Play Store, so head to the link below to grab the newest version.
