Google Maps has been updated to version 4.6 which brings several new features.

Latitude: Latitude now offers “real time” updates which will help you meet up with friends by temporarily seeing faster location updates – however this only works on Android 2.2 (Froyo) updates.

Places: The Place pages on Android Maps share the same new design for displaying reviews as used by Place pages on your computer. You can see:

  • “Reviews from around the web” for highlighting sites that have high-quality reviews about the place.
  • “Reviews from Google users” for reviews posted directly to Google Maps by other users

Filter search results: You can now Filter search of places results by criteria such as Open now, Neighbourhood and Related searches.


You can download the new version from your Android phone directly from here.
