Rebranded mapping app will save places, driving directions and add images.
Google rebranded its Google Maps Engine Lite custom maps app to My Maps, which now offers enhanced search results among several other features.
Google Maps support page noted: "In the coming months, you’re going to see a new, more powerful Google My Maps.
"You can update your saved maps now or wait and they’ll get updated to the new My Maps automatically."
The improved maps app allows saving places, driving directions, in addition to adding photos and videos.
The search major has also added new features such as sharing map as a Google Doc; use different colours to make parts of your map stand out; label features directly on the map; import locations from a spreadsheet; and organise places with layers.
In addition, Google has also expanded its Google Maps Gallery, where users can access publicly shared custom maps including compelling maps from governments, businesses, non-profits and schools.
My Maps product manager Heather Folsom said: "Starting today, you can get a little inspiration by going to Google Maps Gallery and browsing publicly shared custom maps of all types."
