We’ve been happy to hear so many of you enjoying the interface and features of the new Google Maps app for Android, but we know some of you are missing an easy way to access maps offline. That’s why our engineering team has been working around the clock to add a "Make this map area available offline" card below the search box for easier access. And, if you still want some #thumbercise, typing “ok maps” will work too! 

With this update, we’ve also added a "Where's Latitude?" link at the bottom of the side menu which provides more information about the future of location sharing.

The update will begin rolling out globally starting today. In the meantime, keep shakin’ to send us feedback!
