Google Maps Go App Review


Google Maps Go is the lightweight Progressive Web App variation of the original Google Maps app, now with navigation support!

Google Maps Go is the latest app in the Google Maps lineup. It is an app that focuses on users in developing countries. Google Maps Go is designed to be less data-intensive than the full version of the app. It’s also designed to take up less space on your phone. The app also has offline maps, which is perfect for people who don’t have reliable data or Internet coverage. The app is designed to work well with 2G connections.

Google Maps Go is a navigation app that requires a phone with an Android operating system. The design of the app is simplified and does not include many of the functions offered by other Google Maps applications. Maps Go displays a map and details about nearby places and allow the user to search locations and get directions. Users can save maps and use them offline and can share saved maps with others. The app does not include traffic updates and does not allow users to get directions to other locations or determine how long it will take to get to a destination. Users also cannot save routes and calculate the estimated time. Maps Go also does not offer detailed navigation instructions.

Maps Go is currently available in 70+ languages.

The app is designed for people with low-end Android smartphones, which cannot usually support other versions. Maps Go is designed to be light and fast and does not require much storage space to download or use.

    • I’ve used this app for general directions and I use it to find cool looking places to go that are off the beatten path for hiking or going off roading all I do is drop a pin and I can save it for later for a day trip. Also love that I’m able to search places in my area that I had no clue about like historical sites etc places that we take the kids and go check out we have a great time and it’s educational for them Great app thank you google

    • It is long time as I expected modification to the app that the map moves with your current location while driving, but still it stays where it is and is useless in case you don’t specify destination.

    • I almost caused a car accident multiple times, this app is terrible. I always use google map, but I mistakenly used google go and its garbage. I had to disable it off my phone, Its like asking my girl friend to navigate 😩😩😩

    • I like using this app alot.
