Google Maps Go is now available for all Android, iOS, and web users.
Even though the Google Maps app for Android and iOS has been available for a couple of years, and Google Maps for the desktop was launched in 2009, the app is still considered one of the most popular apps for navigation among users, especially on mobile platforms. It is one of the best apps for exploring new places, discovering nearby amenities, finding a shortcut, and staying on track. However, there are still many features a user might miss, including the ability to use public transportation.
