If you are an Apple Watch user, you have probably ever missed not being able to have Google Maps on your wrist.
We have good news today as Google Maps is now also available on Apple Watch so you can get walking, biking, and driving directions right on your wrist.
However, don’t expect to have the full Google Maps app on your wrist. The new app is mainly focused on giving you directions to familiar places (home, work, etc.).
To start navigating to other destinations, you have to first use your iPhone and then go back to where you left off on your watch.
A few years ago, Google already offered a version of Maps for the Apple Watch , but then it stopped offering support in 2017. The Google Maps app for watchOS will launch worldwide in the coming weeks.
In addition to the new Maps app in watchOS, Google Maps now has slightly deeper integration with Apple’s CarPlay, thanks to iOS 13.4 now supporting third-party apps on the home panel.
