Unbeknownst to us, the Google Maps mobile app is again being tweaked. This time, it seems to be just like the search big might be changing the Driving and Transit tabs, which seem on the underside of the display, with a single Commute person interface.
Tapping on the Commute choice – which was first noticed by Android Police on an Android handset – brings up new interfaces sporting a title bar on the highest that can be utilized to pick out the navigation directions ‘to house’ or ‘to work’.
Relying on which choice you chose, a route card will then seem on the underside of the interface, with an ‘alternate route’ showing under that.
Whereas this new workflow seems streamlined, it does appear to make in search of different transport selections troublesome.
It’s straightforward to modify between driving directions and public transport choices on the present Maps interface, however these choices appear to be hidden throughout the new Commute Settings menu on the UI being examined.
With that mentioned, this testing appears to be very restricted in nature – none of us at TechRadar had been in a position to replicate the choices depicted within the photos above. So it’s honest to imagine the brand new UI isn’t a part of a beta replace and gained’t be rolled out publicly earlier than in depth testing.
