Google Maps for Android getting an update today to provide easier access to saving maps locally

Google further said that they are also adding a link in the side menu explaining the status of the Latitude service which is being discontinued.

As you can see in the screenshot above, Google is adding a proper option to save the map being viewed locally when you click on the search box.

Google added that you would still be able to use the search keyword easter egg “OK MAPS” to achieve the same result which is to tell the app to cache that part of the map locally.
