Google Maps Go Lands On Google Play Store

Along with the release of Android Oreo 8.1 Go Edition, Google outed a lightweight version of many of its apps, including Gmail, Assistant, Files Go, and Maps. Of all these apps that are included in Android Go, Files Go file manager was the only one that was available as a separate download via Google Play Store.

Google Maps Go isn’t technically available on any Android devices other than Android Go, but it’s been released in the form of a Progressive Web Application (PWA) on Google’s servers. If you already have Google Maps installed, copying and pasting the link in Google Chrome pulls up Google Maps Go (don’t tap on it — that’ll redirect you to the Google Maps app). 

If you’re curious, you can check out the Google Play Store listing for Google Maps Go at the end. You won’t be able to install it on any non-Android Go devices, but you’re able to peruse the application description, stats, and screenshots.

Google Maps Go is available in more than 70 languages and features in-depth, accurate maps in 200 countries and territories, as well as detailed business info for more than 100 million places. The application is now available in the Google Play Store and is fully compatible with all devices powered by Android 4.1 and up.
