Google Maps is one of the few apps that can actually be classified as a “must-have” on all smartphones and not only the ones powered by Google’s Android operating system. Millions of people are relying on Google Maps when it comes to navigating the world and the app is available in more than 220 countries and territories which are mapped to the last detail. Leaving the amazing features that Google Maps has to offer aside, today we want to present the app’s latest update which sports the 10.19.1 beta version number.
Google Maps 10.19.1 Beta Update
Just like the update’s version number implies, the new 10.19.1 beta update is available only to Android fans who are enrolled in the beta program. If you don’t have a beta account, then you don’t need to worry about it because creating a beta account for Google Maps is super simple and everyone can do it in a couple of minutes.
Nonetheless, the new update for Google Maps introduces a handful of important software changes. First off, the update introduces more details to some maps and this is going to help the app provide users with even faster navigation routes that avoid traffic. Secondly, the update contains a number of bug fixes that take care of various issues which sometimes caused Google Maps to lag. Fortunately, this is not going to happen anymore.
We also want to note that not all Google Maps users need to enroll in the beta program in order to download the new 10.19.1 beta update. The reason why we are saying this is because there is an alternative way of downloading the new update and it involves manually downloading and installing it in the form of APK. This is a special type of update and the APK acronym stands for “Android Package Kit”.
