Say goodbye to the ‘G’ and hello to the pin.
Google Maps came along 15 years ago, wiping out the need to commit routes to your long-term memory and provoking sales of road maps to plummet. To mark its birthday, Google has given the platform a total overhaul, with a brand new look, a plethora of new features and a shiny new app icon.
Google Maps’ icon was last updated in 2015, to a map featuring a pin plus its ‘G’ symbol. But this new incarnation has ditched the lettering altogether, and put the well-known pin icon firmly centre-stage.
