Google Maps updated with new icon, new layout, and new transit information

In today’s Google Blog post, Google is celebrating its Maps platform’s 15th birthday with a new look for the Google Maps app, along with a whole new app icon. Google Maps first launched in 2005, back before Android and iOS even existed. Once Android came around, one of its selling points was that Android users had a free way to get turn-by-turn directions during a time when TomTom and Garmin sold its GPS units, and US carriers charged subscription fees to use their own turn-by-turn maps on feature phones. The following video shows a quick evolution of the Google Maps icon.

A new look is coming to Google Maps, starting with the removal of the hamburger menu. Instead, the app will get two more tabs at the bottom for a total of five. Here’s what each one offers. Explore: Here's where you'll find new places based on your personal recommendations. It's also where you can search for restaurants, city attractions, and restaurants - along with their reviews. Commute: This tab helps you quickly find the best way to make it back home or back to work whether its by car, transit, or on foot. Saved: This is where you'll find your saved places, reservations and plans for upcoming trips. You can also share recommendations to friends of places you've visited. Contribute: Here's where you can leave reviews of places, share details about addresses, and add missing business hours. Updates: This is a feed of trending places near you. It will help you discover places nearby and get in touch with businesses to get your questions answered.
