Google today announced a slew of new features for Google Maps in India. These new features not just make sharing a location address easier but also quicker. Besides the new features, the company also announced support for new languages in the navigation app.Here’s a look at all the features that the search giant has added to Google Maps in India.
1.Plus Codes: Converts long addresses into short alpha-numeric codes.
Plus Codes have been there in Google Maps from quite some time outside India. Now, the feature has been rolled out in the country as well. Google explains that in these alphanumeric codes, the first four determines the area, while adding more digits to it will zoom in to the locality and will eventually give the near-exact location of the place. These Plus codes can be generated from inside the Maps app and can be sent through any text messaging service. One can even paste it in the Google Search bar. This will open the Google Maps automatically with the particular address.

2.Add an address: Now you can add a missing address for millions of others to see.
Add an Address is another feature using which Google expects to bring those locations on its map that have been apparently missing till date. For this, a user can simply drop a Pin at a location and fill in the location address to enable other users to see it. This crowdsourcing feature has a verification filter attached as well.

3.Smart Address Search: If not the exact location, users can reach near them.
Smart Address search feature by Google may not give users the exact address but uses AI's prowess to recognise the nearby landmarks to the specific location that a user is searching for. This is aimed to help users at least reach a near-by location.

4.Support for 6 new Indian languages:

Google has also added support for six new Indian languages in Google Maps. Users can now get voice navigation support for Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam. This is in addition to other languages including Hindi and English.
