Google Maps has been updated to version 6.5. The latest update delivers better support for smartphones with high pixel density displays (Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy S II, Droid RAZR, etc), a faster map style, and a redesigned home screen for Android 4.0+ devices.
According to Google, the new style that’s optimized for high resolution displays makes the road network easier to see, is less obstructed by labels, and offers more color contrast. Furthermore, there is less cluttering at zoomed-in levels and the new style is said to help maps react faster to panning, zooming, and twisting.
Check out Google’s promo video for the latest 6.5 update below. A dozen new videos have also been posted on the official Google Maps YouTube channel. As usual, you can grab the update for free from the Google Play Store.
