Google has just confirmed they will now add offline access to their Maps application. This includes offline search and offline turn-by-turn navigation. This is keeping in line with the company’s goal of taking Google services to everyone.
The new feature is a welcome development at least in this part of the world where internet is not so stable, reliable, and expensive. It’s good to recall that Nokia HERE Maps have had the offline maps working, so it’s good seeing Google joining the trend. The new feature is expected to roll out later this year.
