Google has redesigned the web version of Google Maps

Redesign of several dozen services and applications – business not fast, even if we are talking about a single design code. Apparently, for this reason, so Google pulled the update to its digital products to Material Design 2.0, which only now got to the web version of Google Maps service. Update, as it usually happens in the case of Google, is gradually spreading, and therefore is only available for a very limited circle of users.

Material Design 2.0 had a positive impact on the Google Maps interface. Need to pay tribute to the designers of Google now looks more elegant than before.

Update Google Maps

The first thing that catches the eye is the redesign of the card with the description of attractions and venues. Google maps got rid of the hideous blue color inserts, which are placed on the title, description and feedback from selected locations. Now the same information is on a white background.

But the change of colors, which helped to paint the stars indicating the rating of the institution, in yellow, was not the only change cards. Google redesigned appearance located underneath the function buttons, by placing them in a transparent circle.

Slightly less significant changes were made to the search string. With the release of the updates she received a rounded corners new, less saturated, font, and icons showing the purpose of the desired institution.

The analysis of the rest of the Google Maps interface revealed that the search giant hasn’t finished work on the redesign of the map service. At the time of publication, many elements of the cards look old, despite the fact that definitely need to be lightweight, and often in a quite thorough redesign. So let’s hope that we have not all the changes that were planned by the designers.
