Why Google Maps is completely rebuilding for Android

Google Maps is now being calibrated via Live View, which is in the "secret menu".

Google Maps for Android is a first look at how Google is reshaping its own apps. The main menu on the edge of the screen is replaced.


Google shot itself a bit in the knee with Android app development and its new gesture control. The main menu and the back gesture (swipe from the edge of the screen) are put in such a way that the operation in everyday life often causes frustrating moments. Although improvements were made here prior to the Android 10 launch, Google will have more work to do in the future. A great field test of the all-new Google Maps app shows what it looks like.

Google removes hamburger menu

The navigation drawer, also known as the hamburger menu, will disappear from Google apps in the long run. The Maps application gives some users a first look at this. The Android Libre has several screenshots showing a new Google Maps for Android completely without a classic main menu. The new main menu is now hidden behind your profile photo in the app’s search bar.

Also, there should be more buttons in the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen. In this case, there are a total of five instead of three. Based on the screenshots, there is now direct access to lists (favorites), reviews, and news / notifications.

I look forward to at least the removal of the classic main menu in the near future for all Google apps and possibly as a future requirement for all third party app developers. In any case, I wouldn’t mind.

I still don’t see any of the new maps on my devices, it may continue for a while.
