Google Offers You To Peep Into Malls In India


Google has announced indoor maps for a number of public spaces in India focusing mainly on Delhi and Hyderabad. The search engine stated that they have worked with 75 partners, across 22 cities to launch indoor maps in India and they will be adding more locations.

The maps cover the major metros and also big cities like Bhopal, Coimbatore, Dehradun, and Ludhiana. According to Google, detailed floor plans will automatically appear when you’re using the Google Maps app on iOS and Android, and zoomed in on a building where indoor map data is available. Simply zoom out and the indoor Google Maps will fade away.

Users will also have the option of using the indoor My Location feature which means that when you move up or down a level in a building with multiple floors, the map will automatically update to display which floor you’re on. At these locations, you can also access indoor walking directions to help you get to where you need to go more quickly.

The indoor maps are already available in other parts of the world, including the US, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong and the Netherlands.

Nokia launched the similae service in June 2013, covering 150 malls, in 17 cities.
