There used to be a time when people carried physical maps in the glove compartment of their cars. They were an essential part of getting to new locations and that meant that you needed one if you wanted to make it to your vacation destination or to your cousin’s house in another state. Today however, that’s no longer the case because smartphones have provided us with one of the most important inventions of this technological era: Google Maps. For Google Maps aficionados it is celebration time because the 9.63.0 beta version of the app has been released. If you want the absolute best Maps experience you should definitely update to the 9.63.0 beta as soon as possible.
Sadly enough there’s nothing in terms of new features being implemented in this version of the app. However that doesn’t mean that it isn’t worth installing. Quite the contrary, as it provides essential bolstering of the app’s infrastructure. Bugs are the bane of a good app and Google recognizes this. That’s why the Android maker has made sure to squash as many bugs as possible before putting out the 9.63.0 beta version.
Reasons to enroll in beta
You might be wondering why you should bother with the beta version of the app. Sure, there’s a lot of benefit in using the stable version of the app or the “non-beta” update. However, the beta update provides insight into the latest tweaks made by the developer. If you like being the very first to experience something, this is something that you should definitely be looking into. The fact that updating is so easy only adds to the list of reasons why you should get the newest, bug-free version of Google Maps.
Considering that we’re talking about an app that deals with a lot of issues in real time, it’s even more important that you use the app version that has the least amount of bugs and technical problems. Otherwise, you might easily get frustrated by some of the bugs found inside.
Using Google Maps
If you aren’t using Google Maps already, you should definitely install it even if you’re not that big of a traveler. It can be of extreme use in many different situations. Even a simple commute to work can be enhanced tenfold by having Google Maps installed on your phone. The app is available by default on most Android phones, but if for some reason you don’t have it installed on yours, you can easily get it from the Google Play Store. Once installed, you can use it to set up itineraries, get directions and even check up on traffic and public transportation schedules and routes.
