Widgets have become one of the most prominent features that many different applications and operating systems focus on.
Google Maps is one of the last apps to try to take advantage of this feature, to help save users time on the go.

Use widgets in the Google Maps application

According to recent reports, Google Maps v11.3.0 comes with a widget feature. It appears on the main application screen.

There are also five widgets that you can view on the home screen, which are basically shortcuts to a selection of features.

New widgets include directions, driving mode, location sharing, seeing friends’ location and viewing local traffic.

However, these shortcuts are very simple compared to other Google apps as they allow you to pin a lot of widgets to the home screen.

You can also install only eight tools for the Maps application, and Google aims with the new update to help you use the application on the go. And no need to open the application and search for the aforementioned shortcuts.

You can use these shortcuts directly from the phone’s home screen and use the search bar and other shortcuts.

This is to help you find key locations around you, such as restaurants, gas stations, grocery stores, and more.

You can also customize these widgets as easily as changing the size of the widget and it seems that the number of widgets available depends on the amount of space the phone’s home screen and so far it seems that the maximum placement of shortcuts in the home screen is only eight widgets.

The company has started rolling out the update to users now, and the new update is expected to be available for all phones running Android 11 in the coming weeks

According to XDA Developers, the widgets come with the same dynamic features as phones running Windows 12.

Tips to get the most out of the app

Google Maps has a large list of features that improve the user experience, but most of them are not visible. Google hides some of the app’s most important features in Settings, such as using augmented reality technology to provide real-time information on the go and the feature also makes it easier to locate places you might be interested in visiting such as restaurants and famous landmarks in the area.

It is also possible to know the expected distance when you want to move to another point from your current location, through the distance measurement feature, where you can use this feature for many daily and on-the-go scenarios.
