Google today announced a refresh to the browser-based version of Google Maps as experienced on Android and iOS devices. Now, Android and iOS users can navigate to, opt in to location sharing, and access many of the same features that are available to the stand-alone Maps apps. Google says the browser-based version of Maps will allow Android and iOS users to see their current location; search for nearby points of interest; see clickable icons of nearby destinations; get driving, walking, mass transit directions; see traffic, transit, satellite and other layers; as well as access saved places in Google Maps accounts. The revised version of Google Maps for Android and iOS browsers is already available.
