Updated Google Maps For Android: Walking Navigation + Street View Smart Navigation

Lifehacker reported on the newly released Google Maps Update For Android.  Here’s the 2 new features…

1.  “Google already had walking directions built-in to the Maps app, but they’ve added those directions to the turn-by-turn navigation portion of Android, allowing you to use pedestrian paths and other sometimes easier routes than driving navigation would give you.”

2. “They’ve also included the Street View smart navigation that we’re used to on the desktop. As shown in the above video, you can now enter street view and navigate through it by dragging and dropping Pegman to different locations on the screen.”
