Windows Maps for Insiders in the Fast and Slow Ring updated (changelog)


9, 2016


Microsoft today released a new update for Windows Maps for Insiders on both the Fast and Slow Ring.

The update does not include any major new features, but does fix a lot of bugs and issues. Notable new features do however include the ability to manually save a location when GPS is not available and new Airport venue Maps.

The full changelog reads as below:

  • Ability to manually save your location when GPS isn’t available, which can now be used by Windows and other apps and services that you allow.
  • Reliability, accessibility, and performance improvements.
  • New airport venue maps. You’ll see a purple layout on places that have it and tapping on it will show you the indoor map for that airport. You can also switch between multiple floors.
  • Fixed remaining issues with voice instructions, all languages supported should now be speaking instructions.
  • Fixed several bugs that were leaving guided directions in weird states (arrows disappeared or it stopped tracking your location)
  • Fixed issue with StreetSide becoming unresponsive when you were dragging the mouse outside the app window.
  • Reliability, accessibility, and performance improvements
