Google Maps returned to the platform Apple Watch
Recall that the Google mapping service, along with some other applications, left the watchOS platform in 2017. Back in August, Google promised to return to the watchOS platform, and now it has kept its promise. The new version of Google Maps is available for download and installation in the App Store.
The app provides turn-by-turn navigation and expected arrival times. Various modes are provided, including car, public transport, bicycle or walking.
At the same time, Google Maps for Apple Watch "mirrors" routes that have already been saved on the iPhone. There is no function for self-planning in Google Maps on the watch. On the one hand, this makes the application dependent on the iOS version, on the other hand, it gives access to saved destinations, like home or work.
