Compass is Back on Google Maps

Android users have the Google Maps compass back which was withdrawn in 2019 because of compatibility problems. The frequent user input obliged the company to restart the feature. In the meantime, iOS users cannot use the Google Maps feature as the company plans to get the feature to iOS in the near future.

In its blog post, Google declared that "You needed it and we heard you! We are looking forward to announcing the return of the compass for Android on Maps. The compass was deleted in early 2019 from Maps for Android in an attempt to clean up the screen, but it's back!"

The compass can be used in two formats by Android users – as a standard compass or it can always be pointed to the north. Otherwise, a number of new Maps features were also revealed by Google.

When you go to a destination, users will be able to see the compass on the right side of the device. When the handset is rotated, the red arrow will still point north. The post also indicated that Google Maps 10.62 or higher is required for users to experience Compass.
