Recently we heard that Google has rolled out Beta apps withing the PlayStore where you can even install and use the applications which are still in Beta testing. It is available with the latest PlayStore v6.7.12. Along with many other Beta apps, Google has also rolled out the new Google Maps v9.27 Beta. It comes with some new interesting features making your navigation and places searching much better.
Google has added two new Notification settings in this new Beta version along with a new Splash screen for Android wear devices. However, people running Developer Preview of Android N are already having Maps v9.30. Unfortunately they can’t install this Beta by downgrading.
