Google Maps Go is a lightweight app for phones that do not feature powerful hardware

If your Android smartphone or tablet could not keep up with the resource-hungry application Google Maps, then Google Maps Go might relieve you of that burden that you had to carry with you for such a long time. Google Maps Go is now available to download in the Google Play Store and it will run much smoother on devices that do not feature Galaxy S8-like hardware.

Google Maps Go is a lightweight app for phones that do have powerful hardware

Google has started to take less powerful devices more seriously, and this started with the inception of Android Oreo Go Edition, which is a lightweight operating system update. The company also released a lightweight version of Gmail, Google Assistant, Files Go, and Maps. All of these applications will run smoother on devices that are not powerful enough to run them at a buttery smooth framerate but they will also provide fewer tradeoffs in return.

Devices that are running Android 4.1 and up will be able to support this application. Given below are some of the features that belong to Google Maps Go:

“Tap for quick directions and map details

Get there faster with real-time traffic information

Ride the bus or train with live city transit schedules

Explore the streets with walking directions

Discover places and explore new places

Search and find local restaurants, businesses, and other nearby places

Decide on the best places to go with reviews, ratings, and pictures of food

Find the phone number and address to a place

Save places you want to or visit often, and quickly find them later from your mobile

Available in 70+ languages

Comprehensive, accurate maps in 200 countries and territories

Transit information for nearly 7,000 agencies, more than 3.8 million stations, and 20,000 towns/cities

Detailed business information for over 100 million places”

Most of the things that you do not know about the app will be discovered as soon as you start using it so if your device is not powerful enough to run the regular version Google Maps, the lightweight Google Maps Go should easily be able to handle it.
