Google Maps for Apple Watch

Google Maps has been released for the Apple Watch. The app disappeared from the Apple watch three years ago, but is now back. There are no maps in the app, but they do have directions.

The app is in the iOS version with version number 5.52 in the App Store, writes 9to5Google. Entering a location can only be done on a connected iPhone, after which the Watch shows the route with large maps. Google had already announced the app was coming back.

Google pulled Apple Watch apps from the App Store in the spring of 2017. Since then, it has not been possible to use the card service on the watch. Google hasn’t said why the app is coming back right now. Apple is probably about to announce a new model Apple Watch. The manufacturer has a event scheduled for next Tuesday.
