Google Maps to get a redesigned bottom bar

Right before the summer season kicks in, Google has announced three major features for Google Maps for Android and iOS to make the platform more helpful and easier for you to use during your vacation. Well, the company is making another change to Google Maps for Android which should make the app look cleaner, offering a better user experience.

In the blog post about the three features, Google says “You’ll start seeing new design updates that give Maps a fresh new look — including a cleaner home screen with fewer tabs.” In a new report, 9To5Google says that Google has confirmed to the publication that by “cleaner home screen with fewer tabs” the company is referring to the bottom bar, and not the carousel that shows cards containing suggestions.

That means Google Maps for Android will soon show fewer tabs in the bottom bar, which should make the app look cleaner. However, we hope that reducing the number of tabs does not make it harder to navigate through the app. At the moment, there’s no information about when Google will roll out the revised bottom bar but we expect it to go live in the next few weeks.
