9 handy hidden features for Google Maps on Android
Take advantage of all Maps has to offer by tapping into these easily overlooked features and options
Who doesn’t love Google Maps? The native Android app helps those of us with oatmeal for brains find our way anywhere, without having to fire any neurons or exercise any synapses. It even helps us find places to pick up tasty cuisine — like, uh, oatmeal (yum!).
But there’s much more to Google Maps than meets the eye — and odds are, you aren’t taking advantage of at least a few handy hidden features lurking in the Android app. With word that Google is now apparently testing Waze-like crash and speed test reporting within Maps, I thought it’d be a fine time to think through some of the app’s existing advanced options.
Take a few minutes to explore these out-of-the-way possibilities the next time you’re using Maps to explore the world.
