It’s also getting an updated color scheme, with new icons to identify points of interest like cafes, churches, museums, and hospitals. It’s a pretty useful change, considering previously, Maps would be filled with identical blue-colored icons for stores, cafes, and doctor’s offices. Food and drink is now colored orange; shopping remains blue; pink is health; seafoam green is entertainment and leisure; green is for outdoor; and lighter blue is for transport. Many of these colors look similar and are bound to confuse people, especially those who may be partially colorblind. There will also be icons for road closures, construction, and car accidents. All Google devices that use Maps will be getting the update “over the next few weeks,” including the Assistant, search, Google Earth, and Android Auto. Eventually, the changes will also migrate to sites that embed Google Maps APIs. Get the full story at The Verge and Google
