Google Maps' New Update Will Help You Use It Without A Gmail Account
I recently shared an article on Google Maps' new feature which will help the  blind travel around freely, and if you missed it, you can check out the article HERE.
They recently announced the launching of a new update which will help to see to the issue of privacy, which is becoming a major one in the internet world.
In the newest Android 10 update, Google put a lot of interest in the dominant privacy issues and are working on the Google Maps incognito feature.

Google Maps was often concerning for users since the app, once linked with your Google ID practically kept track of wherever users were or traveled to. The statistics calculated overtime for individuals would help Google decipher more accurate results when the users searched for broad terms on the web.
While the feature was announced a few months ago, the actual update has started rolling out now but only to a few users who are part of the Google Maps Preview Test.

The incognito mode will feature and work everywhere the regular Google Maps functions. Users will also be able to turn it on or off easily with a toggle as they do on Chrome or other Chrome Apps.

In July, Google started offering a detailed map for Boda-Boda ride-hailing services in Uganda and across the continent, aimed to capture new users and expand its appeal beyond just car drivers. The map features allow bike riders to see the Boda-Boda turn by turn direction on Maps and other nitty-gritty features like telling the user the best options available on traffic, weather and road conditions.
