Google new update will get some interesting updates to its home screen. Users from India will get specifically designed home screen with new Quick Actions menu. This Quick Actions menu provides shortcuts which allow you to see directions, map details and saved offline routes all in one tap. This update is exclusively available for Android users in India.
The search engine giant claims that the latest home screen loads much faster even in weak connections. The Google Maps Quick Actions menu appears at the bottom of your screen. You observe three sections- Get Directions, Map Details, and Saved Offline Route in it.
The Get directions section allows you to decide means of transport be it a car, taxi or just by walk. The Map Details section in satellite or traffic mode allows you to see the public transportation available in your area and the ability to download the area.
Lastly, the Save Offline Route section allows you see your last saved route offline for further usage. However, all of these actions were already made available in Maps, but the latest version brings it one menu for ease of use.
“Now when you fire up your Google Maps app, you’ll instantly see a directions card with different modes of transportation. Whether you’d like to take the bus to Connaught Place in New Delhi or you are planning to go by foot to a new mall that just opened nearby, you can start planning your route with a single tap,” says, Cathay Bi, Product Manager at Google.
