Google today announced a refresh for its popular Maps application for mobile devices to follow in its new Material design theme.
The redesign features more bright colors and flat lines than ever before. But the revamp doesn’t stop there.
One cool new feature in the new versions of Google Maps for iPhone and the Android Lollipop operating system: the ability to reserve a table at a restaurant right from within the app, so long as the restaurants are listed in OpenTable. The feature only works in the U.S. for the moment.
Also new: price and ride duration estimates for Uber rides whenever you request directions. This presumes you have the Uber app installed on your phone.
