Google Maps Navigation Announced that Offline Mode Feature is now Available and Accessible for Android devices.
The new app lets you download the maps to a specific area of your choice and get directions even when you’re offline.
Before now, the app let you view an area of the map offline, however with the new update, you get a lot more, including turn-by-turn driving directions, search for specific destinations, and find useful information about places like hours of operation, contact information or ratings.
Google Maps will move into offline mode automatically when it recognises you’re in a location with no or poor connectivity and when a stable connection is found, it will switch back online so you can easily access the full version of Maps, including live traffic conditions for your current route. By default, downloaded areas are done over a Wi-Fi connection to prevent large data fees.
Google didn’t say exactly when the feature will arrive for iOS users but its now presently live for Android users running the latest version of the app
