[I/O 2015] Google Maps Goes Completely Offline Later This Year

 

In an update that is set to release later this year, Google Maps will go completely offline for users on Android.

Announced during Google I/O, a Maps user with the updated app can select an area for which they want saved to their device for offline viewing. When offline, Maps still contains all of the same information that an online user sees, such as business locations, ratings for businesses, auto completion for addresses, and even navigation.
There is no exact launch time frame yet, but as soon we know, we will update you.
