Windows Mango to Display Indoor Maps

The updates to Windows Phone Mango seem to be coming hard and fast. Bing Audio and Vision, SMS Dictation, on-device podcast support, and turn-by-turn navigation were just the beginning of the updates available. At the WPC event it was announced that Microsoft had acquired 400 million licenses and Tami Reller, Corporate Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Windows and Windows Live said that it was the path to Windows 8. According to a report, the latest feature seen in Windows Mango will be the ability to see Bing Maps indoors.

The service allows users to have the ability to view the lay out of large locations such as airports, shopping malls and convention centres. The update doesn’t stop there; users can also view the layout of different floors on mall maps, parking, ATMs, entrances, as well as many other mall services. According to the report, there is also a Directory button, which displays all the stores in the location one is in.

This is an interesting update as now there will no need to go to look out for the floor layout when you are in an airport, mall or any such place. Instead, all this can be accessed right on your Windows smartphone.
