The Google Maps iOS app has received an update, bumping it to version 4.11.0, and bringing several new features as well as some bug fixes. The most prominent feature the update brings to the table is the support for Apple Watch – it adds a companion app for the smartwatch.
As you can see in the image above, the app contains buttons to direct you home and work, as well as to show you recent routes. It also offers turn-by-turn directions.
However, what you actually get is a very basic version of Google Maps compared to the feature-rich version you’re already used to on smartphones – there’s just a blue arrow showing you the direction along with distance information.
Other features the update brings include the ability to call business and get directions directly from a list of places, as well as to compare ETAs across driving, transit, walking, and biking.
The updated app is now available for download from the App Store.
