Google Maps About To Be Different
Alex Chitu at Google Operating System has shared a couple of screenshots of what it says is the new Google Maps interface. It’s no small redesign:
Chitu hints that we could see the new look unveiled at Google I/O next week. Google does apparently have a three-hour keynote lined up.
It’s hard to say for certain just how authentic these screenshots are, as Chitu appears to be the only source (though he thanks a Florian K.). Chitu has a pretty credible track record of Google coverage though, and is always conscientious to point out when new Google features are simply tests. His post makes him seem pretty confident that this is the real deal. I guess we’ll find out soon enough.
Chris Velazco at TechCrunch makes a couple of good points, like for one, that the design seems to fall in line with other Google products of late – the “cards” look in particular. Also Google has had a history of recent product leaks.
According to The Atlantic, everybody hates the new look. What do you think of it?
