Google Maps Update: Redesigned + Tons of Features

Ahead of the Google I/O some screenshots of the redesigned Google Maps interface have been released. The map service has been redesigned to fit in with Google Now's sleek look and will have a more full-screen experience. Perhaps the best part of the new redesign is that the maps will learn from you over time. What does that mean? Google Maps will be truly customized, depending on where you are and how you use them. As you search for places, leave reviews or star locations, the map will learn from you and can make suggestions based off of your past history. 

Here are some screen grabs of the new service, it's easy to see that functionality has increased substantially. 


Another new feature is 'Flight Search' which will help you to locate flights and prices.

The Google I/O will be broadcast live beginning at 9:00am PST/12:00pm EST from San Francisco
