Google adds indoor maps, just in time for the holiday season

The addition of floor plans to the web version of Google Maps means that anyone using any device with a browser can access the feature that, until now, was exclusive to Android users via a specially-built app.

The update to Google Maps could mean that users never get lost in an airport or a transit station ever again.



The addition of floor plans to the web version of Google Maps means that anyone using any device with a browser can access the feature that, until now, was exclusive to Android users via a specially-built app.

The 10,000 floor plans of buildings in the US, UK, France, Switzerland, Sweden, Japan, Canada and Denmark include a number of major ‘destination' buildings such as London's Wembley Stadium and Charles De Gaulle Airport in Paris.

New floor plans will be added regularly and there is also a toolkit available for store owners and others who want to make and submit their own floor plans to improve the service.
