Those using the Google Maps Android application are starting to encounter the compass component, which they had seen in the application interface before. In the company’s sharing of support, it was mentioned that the compass was re-added to the interface in high demand.
Those who have downloaded the 10.62 version of the application will see the compass on the screen again when they get directions to go somewhere. Google removed the compass in 2019 to make the navigation screen look cleaner.
The fact that Google didn’t do the same in Maps’ iOS application has been described as’ ironic ‘. People using Google Maps on iPhone and iPad kept seeing the compass on the navigation screen.
The return of the compass to the Google Maps Android app is another reminder of how important user requests are. The power of online communities has been seen in other examples before.
