Google adds Uber integration and lane guidance to Maps iOS app

Posted May 6, 2014

Google has added several features to Google Maps for the iPhone and iPad, including lane guidance for the U.S. and Canada and the ability to save maps for offline use. Google also added filtered searches for points-of-interest by category, pricing, and hours.


Uber users may be interested in seeing an Uber button placed alongside transit and walking directions. Tapping the Uber button will bring you to the Uber app on your smartphone. Google Ventures put money into Uber so the integration makes even more sense.
