Well, I don't know about other features, but I'm looking forward to using the Plus Codes in Google Maps and I hope third-party apps like Ola incorporate this feature soon as it will make it easier for me to navigate the driver to pick-up location in one go.

To begin with, Google has now added Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu on its Voice Navigation service.

Suren noted that since the time Google India launched Navigation in Hindi three years ago, they have consistently received requests to be able to change the voice-guided navigation from English to a local language.

According to Google, the system is based on dividing the geographical surface of the Earth into tiny "tiled areas", attributing a unique code to each of them. This code is in a "6-character + City" format which is generated when a user drops a pin on Google Maps.

The Plus Codes feature is already a part of the Google Maps, so you can begin using it to share addresses for even unmarked locations right away. This is open source and any application that uses location services API can easily integrate it. Typing in each code after the 4-digit area code will zoom in to the desired addressed. Plus codes are free to use, forever.

Engineer at Google Maps, said the company has collaborated with the team at Japanese video game company Nintendo "to let Mario accompany you on all of your driving adventures on Google Maps this week".

Apart from that, Google has also introduced 'Smart Address Search' which uses different pieces of information in an address to help users find the location they are looking for.

"At Google Maps, our objective has always been about organizing all location-related information, and making it more accessible and relevant for Indian users", Ruhela added, saying that it is especially challenging in India. Moreover, users will also get Local Guides points for each valid submission,"said Google in the release". The Google Plus code can be used to broadcast location on Social Media and also share it with friends and family.

Google has added a handful of new features to the Indian version of the Maps. Google Maps will now try and understand the landmarks in an address and instead of showing no results in some cases, it will display these landmarks when a long address search is typed.

He explained that unlike in the USA, finding a residential address in India can often be challenging as they may not be very well-defined and are often hard to locate. "We are deeply committed to helping find solutions to these challenges". Google Maps is undeniably the best mapping, location, and navigation platform that's available in India, and the company has been constantly improving it for the Indian market.
