There are apps for everything, and it’s long since been agreed on that most people these days aren’t exactly busting out a paper map when they’re lost. They just go to an app or search a map up online. Most commonly, though, the app they turn to is Google maps — and that app is getting an upgrade. Look in “Find directions to locations on Google Maps with the default Maps app on Windows 10 Mobile – WinBeta” to find out how modern day mapping is coming to Windows 10 phones.

Key Takeaways:

  • The UI is intuitive, there’s the ability to download maps offline, and turn-by-turn voice navigation is perfect.
