Tech giant Google's navigation app "Google Maps" for Apple's iOS has got a new feature giving users the ability to add multiple stops to a single trip.
Rather than only directing you from point A to point B -- as the app generally does -- the new Maps can now bring a user from point B to points C, D, E, and so on, making it much easier to plan a trip if a user intends to bounce around and make occasional pitstops, The Verge reported on Friday.
Currently available on the web, this feature was launched on Android a month ago.
After the recent roll out of its 'Wi-Fi only' mode, Google's Maps team also pushed out an update that gives a new look for maps mosaics and also added an interesting feature that highlights 'hotspots' in your area.
The new maps are cleaner. Google has gotten rid of unnecessary outlines for roads and others that will now deliver a simpler and clutter free look. Google had also worked on improved typography of street names, points of interest, transit stations, and more to make for a better reading experience.
'Hotspots' are popular points of interest that will work on the base layer of the map.
