    Internet search giant Google’s one of the most commonly used service Google Maps has undergone a major revamp today and also includes additional features.
    These changes will be rolled out over the next few weeks in all Google products that incorporate Google Maps, including the Assistant, Search, Earth, and Android Auto, said the company in a blog post. Over time, the new style will also appear in the apps, websites and experiences offered by companies that use Google Maps APIs as well, Google further added.

    As part of the design overhaul, the app will have an updated driving, navigation, transit and explore maps “to better highlight the information most relevant to each experience.” For instance, gas stations for navigation, train stations for transit. The app now features designated color and icon for places like a cafe, church, museum and has a new color scheme.
    As for the additional features, you will now be able to see changes like roads close, businesses open, or local events happen in your neighbourhood. Also, when you schedule an event using Google Calendar, get a reservation confirmation in Gmail, or add a restaurant to your “Want to Go” list, Google Maps will now reflect that too.
    Recently, Google announced that it is rolling out a feature that will show you the estimated wait-time at your favourite eating hangouts on Google Search — followed by Maps.
    Wait-time estimates are based on anonymised historical data, similar to how Google computes the previously launched ‘Popular Times’ and ‘Visit Duration’ features.
    To see wait times for nearly a million sit-down restaurants around the world that allow walk-ins, just search for the restaurant on Google, open the business listing, and scroll down to the “Popular Times” section.
