Google Maps goes interplanetary, adds Pluto, Venus, and a bunch of moons

google maps planets

When it comes to maps, Google has already conquered Earth. Whether you need a bird's eye view of your neighborhood or a street-level glimpse at a storefront half the world away, Google can deliver it in seconds. So it's no wonder that after doing pretty much everything it possibly can to map our home planet, it set its sights skyward, and today the company announced it has added a total of 12 new worlds to Google Maps.

The all-new destinations include a whole host of moons scattered around our Solar System, including Europa, Titan, and the frigid Enceladus. Also on the list are the nearby Venus and the once-planet Pluto, and you can explore all of them with nearly the same freedom as the more remote areas of the Earth. You'll have to excuse the lack of Street View support for now, but Google is probably working on that as we speak.

New navigation app has an awesome feature I’ve always wanted in Google Maps

Follow Navigation App

Google is constantly adding great new features to Google Maps, but there's still plenty that it can't do. For example, if you want to follow a friend or family member to a location you haven't previously visited, you can't take a joint road trip with Google Maps, which is why you might want to try out Follow instead.

If you’ve ever wondered about the secret sauce behind that feature the answer is pretty simple. And as you might expect, it’s also very logical and somewhat creepy.

This is the new interface Google is testing right now in Google Maps

Google Maps Car Directions

It's relatively rare that an app or product that starts a sea change in any market remains a market leader for an extended period of time. Typically, early offerings give way to rival products that refine the initial offerings and add new features. In the case of Google Maps, however, Google managed to launch a revolution in personal mapping and navigation, and then maintain a clear lead in this crucial space in the years that followed. Today, Google Maps continues to drive the local search and personal navigation markets, due in large part to Google's continuing efforts to add useful new features and enhancements to the app. And now, we've been treated to a sneak peek at yet another interesting change Google is testing for its market-leading Maps app.
