Maps is also getting a new color scheme as well as new icons that aim to help users quickly identify places of interest. Now cafes, churches, museums, hospitals, and a range of other points of interest have their own icon.
The broad categories include Food and Drink, Shopping, Health, Entertainment/Leisure, Services, Civil Services/Worship, Outdoor, and Transport. Each point of interest within these categories has been given its own icon.
The new design and color scheme will be rolling out to Maps on mobile, the web, and other products that integrate Maps, such as Search, Earth, Android Auto, and Assistant. Eventually the changes will appear in third-party websites that use the Google Maps API.
