Itâ€™s always exciting when Google pushes updates to its apps that include new features, and right now itâ€™s Maps thatâ€™s on the receiving end of some new feature-y goodness.
The latest version of Google Maps will tell you if the place that youâ€™re navigating to will be closed by the time that you arrive. This feature could come in handy if youâ€™re planning on heading to an unfamiliar store or restaurant, or even if youâ€™re thinking about going somewhere across town but youâ€™re unsure if youâ€™ll be able to make it before closing time. When Google alerts you that a place may be closed when you arrive, youâ€™re given options of starting the navigation anyway or canceling it.
Additionally, this Google Maps update can show your car rental info when you search â€œmy eventsâ€ in the app. This info is pulled from your Gmail.
Overall this is a smallish update for Google Maps, but the new features that it does include are pretty noteworthy, so you should probably grab it soon. The update was waiting for me when I checked Google Play on my phone, so grab your device and get to updating!
