Microsoft has started updating its applications in the store starting with Photos and Camera earlier today eventually updating its new universal Maps app.
The new update does not include a changelog but seems to have fixed the search issue. There is also a new Street Side layer in the app to toggle on or off, and I reckon that there are bug fixes and improvements under the hood.
- Search for addresses, businesses, restaurants, hotels, and local attractions.
- Get driving, walking, and transit directions.
- Hear turn-by-turn voice navigation on GPS-enabled devices.
- Download maps to use them even without the Internet.
- See your favorites and search history across all your Windows PCs and phones.
- Explore the world in 3D with detailed imagery of more than 200 cities and landmarks.
- See 360° panoramas of a place with Streetside views.
- See current traffic and traffic incidents on the map and plan your trip accordingly.
- Get detailed business info like phone numbers, directions, addresses, business hours, and reviews.
- Print and share step-by-step driving and walking directions.
