Google Maps Update Brings Quick Access To Flight, Hotel & Restaurant Reservations


Google is in the process of rolling out a rather helpful new update for its official Maps application, bringing users “quick access” to flight, hotel and restaurant reservations – providing they are linked to your Google account.

Similar to Google Search, your flight, hotel and restaurant bookings are presented in a unique card-style UI directly in your Maps search screen, thus making it easier to manage all of your appointments and plan your daily commute all in one place.The Google Maps application comes pre-loaded on all Android devices, and allows users to explore new places around the world with voice guided turn-by-turn GPS navigation.

The changelog for the update can be seen below:

  • Faster access to navigation, complete with route and traffic overview
  • Improved hotel search results with sponsored rates and booking links
  • Tips and Tricks available in the side menu
  • Bug fixes

The update can be downloaded directly from Google Play – simply click the source link below.
