Google recently confirmed that it will be introducing an "Incognito Mode" for its Search as well as Maps. The new feature is designed to offer you more privacy. With the incognito mode, your essential navigation and search data will remain encapsulated.

The users may also see Google Maps with a new "Eyes Free" walking navigation mode. The mode will marginally prevent you from looking at your device after you have navigated the phone. Eventually, the mode would come with more voice guidance which will guide you during walking.

We have already seen "Live View" navigation mode on Google Maps which helps in overlaying walking directions in augmented reality. The search giant is also on the move to include bike-sharing stations to its Map services. With the sharing stations, users will be informed about docked bike-sharing services near them.

Lastly, Google Maps has added more than 45,000 community and public toilets under Central government's "Loo Review" campaign that covers 1,700 cities in India.
