The American giant continues the trend of optimizing the application and issuing them in a weaker version with the note "Go". This time it was the turn of popular Maps. How do they differ from the standard program edition?

Android Go is an operating system that we met some time ago – this is the green version of the default robocik intended for devices that do not have a thrilling specification, and are simply simply poor in terms of performance. Along with the software, the American company wants to provide users with applications optimized for weaker equipment. Immediately after YouTube, Google has come to Google Maps, which take up little space, are functional, but at times may annoy your limitations . This does not mean, however, that it is not worth looking at.

Unfortunately, the biggest limitation of the new Google Maps in the Go version will be their compatibility. It turns out, however, that there is a way.

Google Go Maps work very much the same as the standard version. Unfortunately, users of weaker devices will not be able to use the real-time navigation mode – however, the application will inform you about the way to the destination at certain intervals. The Mountain View giant also decided to let us review information about nearby places such as ATMs, cinemas, restaurants and shops.

However, if you have weaker devices, then I actually recommend using the link that I put in the text above.
