Google is finally rolling out a Wi-Fi only mode for its much-loved Maps app. Apart from the new toggle, has also added new notifications for mass transit delays as well. Android Police reports that the new feature is rolling out gradually and that users will need Maps v9.32 installed to take advantage of the same.
The toggle for the Wi-Fi only mode can be found in Settings screen. If you can see it right away, you are perhaps one of the lucky ones to be able to use the new feature.
Previously known as ‘offline areas’, the new toggle does what it states, which is to disconnect the Maps app from your cellular or data network. Google however, states in a small pop up that the Maps app may still use a small amount of data during operation.
