The Google Maps team is introducing new features for travelers, all of which users should see inside of their Maps app in the upcoming weeks.
One of the big new inclusions is a Reservations section for those who have trips booked via a Gmail account. Once booked, users will automatically see all travel reservations inside of Google Maps, such as flight and hotel reservations. Not only can you access this information inside the app, but it’s all accessible when your phone is offline, too.
To access, tap on the three gray lines at the top left corner of your screen, and then on “Your Places”. Then, hit the “Reservations” tab where you’ll see a list of your upcoming trips.
Google also took this time to highlight the existing Live View feature, its AR-powered Street View feature for pedestrians. In supported areas, you’ll get real-time walking directions with Street View. This will be super handy the next time you’re in an area you aren’t familiar with.
Again, users should see Reservations inside of Google Maps soon.
