Over the years we’ve made some significant improvements to our map style. This summer, we’re starting a new project to give you more map and simplify the overall look and feel. As part of a larger effort, Google is bringing you an experience that’s more focused, elastic, and effortless.



Whether you use Google Maps to discover new places, or to seek out destinations you know well and love, we hope you’ll find our updated look as familiar and reliable. It’s simple polish with focus on what’s most important—your map.
