The app is universal (i.e., available for computers and smartphones), combines the features of Bing Maps and HERE Maps, and operates in two modes, one of which is optimized for keyboard and mouse, and the second is designed for touchscreens of smartphones and tablets.
The new app also includes the ability to work with maps in offline mode and in real-time data of speed limit, route setting and traffic in the area of the user.
Maps supports voice commands, which allow you to search for interesting places and information about them can be automatically synced between all user’s devices, which is another advantage. Of course, the app includes a street view and three-dimensional maps of most popular places.
Try out the new maps right now, but you need to install the latest version of Windows 10 Technical Preview on your smartphone or computer.
